Inspired by this Lois Ehlert book called Fish Eyes that I swiped off Emma’s bookshelf
and the pattern for the turtles, I made my own set of fish today. Perhaps I’ll create a little ecosystem.
The pictures in this counting book are great and give me lots more ideas if I feel so inclined. But my favorite fish are the little ones in this first picture, which were my initial inspiration.
And this is the view out my window this morning.
We are getting a huge snowstorm and there must be at least 12 inches of snow outside. Not only that, we were getting lightning and thunder during the storm. Strange. The girls were freaked out.
Dan’s still out of town and we are all suffering from some severe cabin fever. I think I’ve got the worst case. Thankfully, Dan’s home for the weekend before he’s off again to Maryland for a job interview….
FYI: I’m computer-free tomorrow.

Wow it’s so strange for me to read about snowstorms – here in Canberra Australia it’s so hot! We’ve had so many hot days in a row it’s unbelievable. Well, I guess we are in the last dying days of summer – it’s going out with a bang! We are having thunder and lightning storms here too. But a lot hotter!
Like your fish – especially the one with the ‘quilted’ material. Very tropical!
wow that snow looks amazing! And lightening and thunder too boot. I actually think that would be lots of fun, long as no one got hurt.
Wow those are super cute…I’m excited to mail my Mini Swap tomorrow…Finally…and before I give birth…woohoo!
I love the fish Molly, so cute! Are you going to do the seahorses, those are our favorites (hint hint, just kidding, really). Wow, I can’t believe all the snow, its bitter cold here (relatively speaking for Seattle) but nothing like that. 12 inches? And no computer?? Are you nuts? : )
like the fish! Have fun computer free tomorrow!
We have that book; I love that you are showing you kids how to be inspired by books. What a gift! We have thunder and lightning mixed with rain/snow here too. Cabin fever is high!!
my girls love that book! they make all sorts of babbles to the fish at the turn of each page – what a great idea to make some inspired fish!!!!
Cool fish! Hope you had a great sans-computer day. And thanks for stopping by!
we have been swimming all morning so that weather is sort of like fairy tale weather to me.I see you had to make 2 my kids fight over everything too!
