I was thinking it was about time for a craft project around here. I will admit, there's been very little of that stuff going on around here. BUT a few weeks ago, we got our craft on.
The kids have their own bathroom that was looking a little boring and what's better in a kids' space than kid art?!
I wanted them to do something modernish and something that would match the color scheme of the bathroom. After combining some pinterest ideas and some Alicia ideas, we came up with this.
Each kid had a canvas and painted the top 80% or so blue and the bottom grey.
Then on rectangles cut from a map (the skyscrapers) they added windows with a Sharpie.
Next was ModPodging the buildings on to the canvas...then they added "clouds" using all sizes of lids for stamps. I seriously love how they turned out. I could barely wait for them to dry so I could hang them up!
By the way...how was your weekend? Ours was full and fun. I love weekends with a good mix of accomplishments and leisure. I did some fluffing (that I'm really excited about and will share later this week...), we had dinner with friends, I pinned 10,000 ideas on Pinterest, listened to an amazing sermon on Sunday, and took a ride on the Parkway.
Look what I'm forced to look at every day!! Is it not beautiful?! I love green. I cannot believe the amount of trees here! I love it. Also, on our Sunday drive we saw this...
...what is it? It looks like an ox or something. Like an ox-llama? Any information would be very appreciated. We were all baffled.
And I'll leave you with this view...

Happy Monday! Let's make it a good week. Our week is going to be full of appointments, farm field trips, school (3 weeks left!!), paint, projects, farmer's marketing, and all the other stuff that we all do. The busyness and on-going drama of life has been making me a bit of a downer lately, so I've been trying to look at things more with the vantage point of the "glass half full people." I'm not always like them, but I've been trying to chum on their side of the lunchroom lately...are you already there or do you wanna come sit with us? Let's have a great week, Sweet Ones.
