  10. Robyn:

    I also like to involve my children in crafts; it is a perfect way to let them express themselves. Since I have four kids and they all want to use my Cricut, I had to divide the jobs; loading person, unloading person, button pusher, and unsticking person. Most of the time it works out OK. We also like to paint.

  37. My six babies are age 26-17 now and there is nothing I like more than when they actually ask me to help them make a card for an occasion. They usually have to tell me to rein it in a little bit since most of them tend to be on the less is more side of design. Love your site Robyn.

  38. Your son is so cute. I love how he has his own way not to be rushed by mom.

  55. Hi Robyn,

    Cute video! I love to craft with my 3 daughters (age 13,11 and 6) and my Mom. All of my daughters love to stamp cards and my older two have their own scrapbook supplies/books going! I've taken them to crops and stamp camps, they use the cricut for crafting as well as their school projects. We all love to watch your videos and learn new things. We also like to sew, cross stitch, crochet.... and bake together, in particular cookies. I cooked with my Mom as a little girl and it is such a joy to see my Mom cooking/teaching my daughters traditional recipes and just sharing special time together.

    Thanks,
    Ramona jbmb@comcast.net

  123. Hi Robyn and Robyn's son!

    I watched your son's video last night. He is adorable! I can't believe he's 5 already.

    Anyhow, kids are so funny. They have a mind of their own. I don't have any yet, but of course I've been around them enough to know what they're like. It was nice to see you get your son involved in crafting.
