Spring Wreath

I am going to have to look up the link for this one and edit the post later, but I saw this pretty cherry blossom wreath idea, and this is my take on it. I love how simple and pretty it is...

Painting with a Twist

I got to have a mommy night!! My friend and I went to a place called Painting with a Twist. It was a little stressful, but still fun and the end result was worth it, come to find out our first was prob one of the harder ones. And it looked to be an easier one... We started with a blank canvas. They had our paint all ready for us, they did let me get a different background color so that it would match the boys' monkey bathroom (more of that to come...) First we were told to draw a straight line to seperate the canvas, like how straight my line was ;-)

then step by step they took us through the drawing, there were so many lines and grey spots from errasing, they promised us that it would look bad before it got better :) I forgot to take pictures from there, but here is the end result and you can kind of see their painting in the back ground :)
Oh, I will be linking up all the posts after I get the boys to bed ;-) And that is a pic of my boys above ;-)

Lent Eggs

I saw this Easter countdown idea over at Eighteen25, and thought I would have it pertain more to the real reason for the season...I also painted the egg carton so that we weren't staring at egglands best all season ;-) Inside the carton is a little bit of Easter grass and some old plastic eggs with numbers on them...I found a Lenton countdown and printed off the sheets and then typed the prayers included...Inside each egg is the prayer, that we are supposed to recite throughout the day. I put the strips on the refridgerator so we can see them and the eggs and binder with the sheet on top. We are actually behind. I need to get black ink so we can get caught up, which seems to be the story of my life... More completed craft posts to come :)

sick little man

Well, we were supposed to have a busy day, but my youngest woke with a fever of 100.3. Though the Motrin has kicked in, we are still staying home most of the day. So, I figured I should post all my crafts I have completed. So get ready for a few posts :) I have new furniture, a new door wreath, some decorations for my room, and some scrap pages. Am currently working on a wreath for the babies' room, and also some art stuff for their room with pictures and posters, those will be posted when complete and their shelf is up too :)

Keep a look out...
