Recent Critter Creations...

Happy Wednesday to you!

I took the girls to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science this morning and boy, was it busy! We only stayed a couple of hours at most because it was getting too crowded for my comfort level. I guess since it's Spring Break and the weather isn't too spring-like, it stands to reason that people want to be indoors. We enjoyed ourselves though. They have a new exhibit about earthquakes, volcanoes and tornadoes that was interesting. I think going again when it's not quite so busy would allow us to really take it in. Jessica also thought it was too noisy/loud and wanted to leave that area. But they had some good hands-on areas for the kids to better understand nature's fury at times! Even if I had taken my camera, I wouldn't have been able to take any photos.

I've taken the first two lessons in the Photo editing class and am just not sure I am getting it. To me you can tell the photos are edited and the changes look a bit harsh to me. I have to admit to seeing some improvement over the original, I guess I need to play around a LOT more to get the hang of it...when it's too much and when it improves the overall photo.

I've also continued to work on crocheted critters and thought I'd share...unedited...LOL

The Brontosaurus and Pony are from Gourmet Crochet and the bunny is another eggling from Amigurumi Paradise.

Sorry this is so short...gotta get the girls to swim class...

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

More great critters! These are so cute!

I know what you mean about the Children's Museum. It seems to be the same for the Omaha zoo too. I am going to take Tate out of school one day to take the boys to the zoo. I hate it when it is so busy we are fighting the crowds. I am looking at it as a field trip from with mom. LOL!

More sweet critters! I wish I'd been with you and the girls today. While your weather might not be nice, it can't be as nasty as it is here. I did, however, provide me with the opportunity to wear my hat, so my head was warm (and pretty darned cute) thanks to you!! Perhaps, it will be my Easter bonnet, too - not funny, but entirely possible. Sigh...

OH wow Jeanne those are so, so cute and gorgeous. Just love the little egg like one lol.
Good job Amy is in bed or she would be bugging me and asking me to make one! Not Likely!

Your trip to the museum sounded like fun, even despite the crowds. We went through a similar exhibit when we toured the Narnia exhibit last summer in Phoenix. It was loud, but very interesting for all of us.

Your newest critters are really cute -- I especially like the pony with the saddle. ;)
