Budding Artist

A little while ago, Maya noted that the Obama 12 pin that Grandma Cheryl was wearing was not completely painted. The letters on this pin had been left the natural wood color, and Maya very much wanted to paint them! We told her we would bring her some parts that she could paint herself, and make her own Obama 12 pins! We knew better than to forget, and brought a few blank parts the next time we were there for "Grandkids Wednesday"!. Maya had a great time carefully painting the parts! She was a bit impatient with the idea of waiting for the paint to dry, but after lunch she declared them dry, and we glued them together. Above are two of them. Grandpa wears one all the time now!

Inspired, I have gone ahead and set up two places to buy "Obama 12" handmade wooden campaign buttons, and help contribute to the re-election of the best president ever.... oh I know .... you probably don't all agree, but that is one of the great things about this country! We don't all agree, but we usually manage to get along fairly well!

To get your handmade wooden "Obama 12" buttons, go here or here for some of our work.... 75% of the $ goes to the 2012 campaign - the balance offsets our cost of making them. We even have a pin promoting the re-election of Bo as "First Dog"!
