I have so many fun ideas in my head but very few make it to fruition these days with being a working mother of a toddler and wife to a husband who travels. I love my many blessings, so don’t think I am complaining…just being for reals here…a girl can’t do it all, all the time! So, this past weekend I decided we were going to create and that we did! It was a crazy, fun time. It felt so good to get it out of my head and see the ideas come to life.
I am loving Pinterest. I am getting all sorts of handprint/footprint ideas for H. I decided to do a handprint or footprint each month this year and make a calendar of them next year. So, we made this footprint into a snowman and we went ahead and did a Valentine hand craft. It is suppose to make a heart in between, but with a squirmy 2 year old, we are just happy to get the idea of a heart. We also made some fun thumbprint cards for some special Valentine’s. Henry loves to do crafts. They do them at school all the time so he is a pro with the hand and foot painting.
Friday night I went up to the office/craft room and did Cricut crafts until I could do no more. It was so much fun. I was up there all alone with my Pandora stations playing. It was fabulous fun. Randall was in his garage putting a new part on his 4-wheeler and watching ESPN, so we were both in our element and happy chickens. Anyway, I made these cute “Soapin you’ll be my Valentine” for some special teachers. It was a fun craft and cheap to boot…score!
This is when I knew it was time to close up shop and go to bed. I decaled Henry’s tub. This picture is not stellar.It is straighter than it appears in this photo. It is actually pretty cute in person. I also decaled Randall’s door in his garage “Howdy” in silver vinyl. He encouraged me to go to bed at that point! I love my Cricut.
I purchased an iron on design for H on Etsy last week to put on a shirt. I then realized I could possibly make some of them on my own, so I did. My pal at work showed me some easy steps and I made this houndstooth H. I made one for Melissa’s little Luke just like this one. It is so fun. I know it will not wear/wash much more than 5 or 6 times, but it cost me nothing but the iron on paper. I love dressing my boy!
