I recently introduced my youngest to the concept of spooning during some night time snuggles. Yes I had my mama motive; ever since he was born he has clung to my necklace. It is his safety net and his comfort zone. Love it I know, but some nights I need a little personal space around my neck so I said how about spooning? He loved it. So that got us thinking about spoon crafting this week.
Step 2- now find those metal stamps that should be in the wood studio. Remember you bought those with the thought of stamping into wood and it was not quite what you were looking for. Bingo, you found them.
Step 3- gather hammers, bricks, and willing children to smash flat spoons. Step 3 is surprisingly easy-have a cup of while "supervising" children flattening out the spoons with glee and slighty unbelievable joy that you are letting them take hammers to said silverware!
It is a pretty rough start, but I think we have been bitten by the spooning bug. Guess we just might find ourselves at the thrift store this weekend hunting down some more. It will be our reward for some cleaning/purging!
PS- I would recommend an anvil over the bricks lest you are wanting the fine aesthetic of broken bricks in your patio from which you borrowed said bricks! Looks like it might require a stop at the anvil store this weekend too.
Anyone have any other experience with spooning?
