Sometimes seeing your family in a very cute format makes you feel cheerful. At the beginning we created very small family with mum, dad and a baby, but then my second boy offered me to add our baby and his big brother. I hadn’t realized until that moment that he created his own family. So it turned out our weekend fun to craft our family who was enjoying hammock in a forest on a rainy day. 😊

Newspapers are great for crafting. If you cut a bunch of newspaper in the shape of a butterfly at the same time and tie it in the middle with a jute rope, you will have wonderful butterflies.
