Blogging Blues

Okay we admit it....we can't keep up. We can't keep up with everything. It has obviously gotten overwhelming for us to post every weekday, so we aren't going to unless we have time. No more daily themes for the time being, we are only going to post what and when we can. Don't worry, our craft day projects are still to come. We are still rounding up pictures of all the different things, so you can see how many different faces one craft can have. Thank you for all of your support and we hope you hang around and see where this ride carries us!

Tadpole Tuesday: Mod Podge Picture Plaques Micki

The kids and I were looking for a simple project. I took them to Michaels and let them pick out a cheapo wooden plaque and a paint color. And here is what we created.

First, saran wrap the table (a must in crafting in our world):
Mom lays out the paint, brushes, bowls for the paint and the plaque:
The kids do a fantastic job painting the plaques:
Then you let the paint dry:
While it's drying you pick your matching scrapbook paper from moms stash:
You rip up the paper and mod podge the pieces on:
Then mod podge your picture on and viola:
We had a good time doing them and now they have pictures in their rooms. :)

Mystery Monday: Answer to Tulip Palooza (Micki)

Remember when we posted about tulip palooza here. We finally are going to reveal the answer. We couldn't do it before because it was a craft day project. We made this beautiful tulip wreath. It looks so cute on my door. It's so big and beautiful. I have never had any spring decorations so I was excited.

Here it was on my door:
We got some beautiful butterflys from Michaels:
And some bumblebees too:
