I've been having the February blahs lately, so I turn to crafting. I created this wall art out of a kit from Archiver's. I can't take any of the credit, it's designed by the Archiver's people, but I did adapt it to fit five pictures instead of three. I love the color combination. I think I may make another one too. It was fun and pretty quick to put together.
Part 1Then I found the cutest classroom valentines off of a craft blog. I bought all the supplies and found two cute girls to make them. I helped a little, but did more of the photo taking.
To complete the project one needs Smarties, Lifesavers, Gum (long stick kind), string, labels and rubber bands.
Then the assembly begins...
Kate is a neighbor and friend of Madison's.
Madison and Kate were busy for over two hours.
They made the cutest airplanes!
This is Tyler's Team B Basketball Team.
They look thrilled. I like how one (Nate) hid from getting in the photo.
Teenagers are awesome to photograph...not.
Tyler's team played on Saturday and lost 19 to 39. Only one more game to go.
Today was Youth Sunday at church.
Madison gave the Pastoral Prayer...
in front of several hundred people.
She was a rock star! I am very proud of her!
We are on week 3 of E-Mealz. We did skip last week and I regretted it. It's been very helpful in creating quick, healthy choices for the family. No more..."What's for dinner?"
We have noticed an increase in complaints from the minors in the household.
Apparently, we've feed fish sticks, corn dogs and chicken nuggets to our kids for too long.
Above is a picture of Beef Pot Pie. It was good and brought me back to memories of those frozen Chicken Pot Pies my mom use to buy from the store.
This was a lot better!
Tell me what you are doing to keep busy in this technically short (but seems forever long) month?
