Is it Friday yet?? We still have four more days and I am TRYING to make it…tomorrow is Grinch Day…I told my kids to expect to see me as the Grinch tomorrow and perhaps on into next week! lol
Anyway, I have a couple of things to share. One is an EAZY PEAZY ornament snowman craft. It is made from burlap (I know, I know, it seems like I am obsessed with burlap…but I like it!!)
Let me first point out that the reason the look so stiff is because I might have spray painted them first …trying to take the easy way out, but in the end found it doesn’t work. However, it does make the burlap stiff and then the kids can paint the white apple barrel acrylic paint over it for a great effect. Next, using my handy dandy circular sponge brushes that I have spoken about so many times before (here)…the kids added the dots and used a brush to make the carrot nose.
Use a hole punch, some raffia and you are done.
(Don’t judge the messy room… =)
ALSO, my husband pointed out that last night when I posted, that the picture I used of the collage of items included in my new Snowman Survival Pack makes it too hard to see the details of the pages…he said instead I should just post examples of some of the pages- that ‘less is more’. I always am afraid of doing that because I don’t want to make a post gynormous by including too many pictures, but still want to show what all is in it. SO let me know what you think…here is last night’s post that shows the collage (here) and then here are some pages that I would have shown if not using the collage. Give me your insight and advice if you have the time!
