I could only find one hammer, so we took turns. Hammer two nails and then pass. It was fun! Trevor...oh, Trevor. Like I've said before, when he has a hammer everything looks like a nail! But he did pretty well, except for smashing my finger once. Ouch
We decided to paint our houses next:
I should have known I was awakening my creative juices. I love to paint. Seriously. The year I got pregnant with Trevor I was supposed to take two more art courses at JBU. I ended up postponing those classes...indefinitely. Of course, I don't regret that in the least, but I do sure miss the art classes!! I HAD to sketch then. Oh, what wonderful assignments!
We do crafts all the time, but the birdhouse painting combined with my chance "encounter" with an artsy blogger just stirred something in me. At 10am Saturday night I did this:
Isabelle's Loft Bed
Today, on the kids' "break time" after lunch, I made a mouse pad for myself...
...and I completed the kids' "quiet box" (a great idea from Simply. It has little wooden people inside for the kids to play with when they need to be quiet, such as in a waiting room, in church, at a restaurant.)
Forgive me for not turning the picture. I'm just being lazy now. Too tired from all the crafting! I am very psyched about doing the boys' room next!! They want Dr. Seuss!!
