as part of our goals for this beautiful new year, we have asked each of our kids to pick one craft that they would like to master this year. at dinner last night, we went around the table and shared what our craft would be.
for ezra he wants to become a better cook. he loves to bake but this year he wants to experiment more with whole foods, chopping, stirring, using his head to put together good flavor combinations. zion wants to learn photoshop. he is the one who, like me, loves design. his eye is always noticing interesting angles, composition, colors, and finding something amazing in the smallest detail. zoe wants to master frosting cakes. we will start with her making batches upon batches of frosting and using her tips to create swirls, stars, rosettes, lines, etc. onto wax paper for practice. she may get tired of the repitition and just want to get on with the decorating actual cakes that can be eaten (won’t we all!?!?), but we will start small and slowly work with her to eventually be practicing on cakes. axel is torn between cooking and drumming. i think we will steer him more toward cooking and allow drums to be used for his art time. and for myself, i’m hoping to tag along with ezra and learn a bit more about flavor combinations; as well as zion because i need to actually learn photoshop for myself. i have a couple other crafts i would like to master that i will share later on.
