I love the article. I'm totally a hyrbid of one and two . . . I like art, and want them exposed, and try to expose them, and encourage them (I even painted a chalk board wall in the play room . . . but I'm still a little phobic of the messes . . . I love and hate when connor asks to paint. :)

Very nice Blair. Thanks for the needed tips. I am an arts and craftsy "want to be". I like the idea but when it comes to actually getting down and dirty, it does not come naturally to me. That is why I love to read and get some much needed inspiration from homeschool moms like you :-)
