Kokoleo Windows and Craft Camp

Well it seems I failed in that  that resolution to blog at least 10 times a month. I promise to better this month though. Oh wait, this month is already half over. Where does the time go?

Last month I spent a lot of my time preparing for this:


An all-kokoleo display in the windows of happy delusions in downtown Renton. That's the inside view, here it is from the outside:


I said windows plural because directly across from this is another huge window that I decorated as well:


And in the middle is another big window.



It was fun filling these spaces with my stuff. Mary, the owner of happy delusions, gave me free reign to do what I want with them. On the day I decorated them, McKenna didn't have preschool and I worried she would get restless but she was an awesome helper – handing me nails, clothes pins, and glue dots. She said, “Some day I'm going to work here. I'm going to sew things and sell them here like you do.” Since I technically don't have a real job, it was as close as a “Take Your Daughter to Work” day as I'll get.

The following night was "First Friday," a downtown art walk where some of the businesses stay open late and the community comes together to enjoy wine and cookies and art. My friend Dacia, who owns the Old Renton Book Exchange came and purchased this shirt for her boy Bo off my clothesline display. How cute is this kid?



To kick off my Spring Break Kids Craft Camp that I was going to be teaching at the store the following week, I offered to set up a table in front of the shop and let people make some of the projects I have planned for my class. 

 

The results were adorable. Here are just a few:

 


And here are some pics of last week's Craft Camp. Monday was Fun with Puppets:

 


Tuesday was Monster Mania:


Wednesday was Puffball Power:


Thursday was No-Sew Pillows and Totes:


And Friday was Arty Party:


Turnout was great and we're even thinking about doing it again this summer and possibly next winter break as well. Stay tuned!

Craft camp sounds fun! I want one here. (But I do not want to lead it.)
