The 8 yo doesn't do much art work these days. But, every once in a while, in a fit of crafting frenzy, she'll make a handful of items and then cool the jets, whiling away the time being bossy with her brother or nagging one of us to play Monster with her...

Coaster for Mama, plus a finger-knitted scarf with fabric flower embellishment.
