Our Scribble Picnic theme for this week coincides with the beginning of Hanukkah and we could choose DREIDEL or SPINNING TOP or TEETOTUM. I went with spinning top as most of my painting and drawing paraphernalia is temporarily stashed away.
Without going into much detail, my mother-in-law passed away at the age of 93 - her quality of life had been failing these last few years and she is at peace now. So along with getting ready for the holidays, and having her memorial service with family gathering afterwards, I wasn't ready to pull everything out again yet so I went with what was readily available - some origami paper.
I folded the three separate units.
Inserted Unit 2 into Unit 1.
And then Unit 3 into that.
And (hopefully you can see) this is it spinning.
We had our first snow of the season this weekend, the same day that we had the service, and then on Sunday I received notification that one of the teachers in our school district passed away unexpectedly. His wife also works in the the district so it has touched all of us and left a very foggy atmosphere. This little spinning top did brighten things up a bit.
I'll be visiting with the Picnickers soon to see what they've brought this week. You can too if you click here. And should you wish to join in next week the theme is CHRISTMASTIME.
