Allison made this Home sign for us. She has been making some great crafted items lately. It seems like the whole family has one project or another happening around the house. Eva is constantly creating something new. Andy always wants to cook or bake something and Allison has many crafting projects in the works and has even more projects that she is learning. I’m not sure if this will be the final location for the sign but I sort of like it there.

Crafting an EVA Foam Sword

Eva is putting together a costume/cosplay for Halloween. She is going as a character named Nico di Angelo, a character from the Percy Jackson series of books. He’s soon have a one shot story with his boyfriend Will Solace. Eva has gotten a bomber jacket and more to add to her cosplay. The last thing she needs to complete the costume is a sword. So, she is crafting one for the first time. We picked up all the materials for the sword and Eva helped me cut the foam. I cemented it together with Contact Cement and picked her up a Dremel so that she could sand it down and create anything extra that she wanted for the sword. The next steps are hers to complete.
