My Kid Is Outcrafting Me!

So, I know I may have talked a little about my crafty daughter before, but now she is just putting me to shame.  I've been a little, shall we say, unproductive lately.  She, on the other hand, is on some sort of manic crafty high lately.  If she is not doing homework, she is doing something crafty.  She is repurposing all kind of stuff to make other stuff.  That kids is the ultimate green crafter. 

I think she has recovered just about every box we have in the house.  Know what she has in those boxes?  Craft suppies, of course, and journals that she has made.  (Please ignore the black Sharpie marker she got all over her desk.  ugh!)

The one on the left she made out of an old High School Musical game board, scrapbook paper, duct tape, recycled paper and somehow she made it dry erase on the cover.  The one on the left, she made out of the same game board and the inside pages are made of a box of Thank You cards and envelopes. 

Can you tell the pages are envelopes? 

Then there is this:

She painted a ready made cup and made the removable top and out of clay.  Isn't that the cutest?

Seriously, this kid is making me look bad!  She amazes me with her creations.  It's like my creative gene quadrupled when it got to her.  Alright, I'll quit bragging on my kid now. 

Have a great Tuesday!!
