First things first....huge congrats to my sister Kendra and Paul on the birth of their BIG baby boy! He was born last night, and was 9lbs 14 oz! Wish I was closer so I could snuggle that little man!
picture stolen off Pauls Blog... Isn't he darling?!
I have been wanting to do a wall in my house that I can display the kids art work when they bring it home from school for a long time. Well, I finally did something! I had tons of frames just sitting in my garage, so I bought some spray paint, and got busy painting them! They won't all hold artwork...as you can see I have a clock in one, and a picture in another one. But that's ok. And it's not exactly what I had pictured in my head, but I think it turned out ok. What do you think? Is it ugly? Does it need something else? Obviously all the frames aren't filled yet...but they will be.
( and this is why I hate decorating...after going to my sisters house last night, I wish I would have done them all in different shades of white. She is a white person! We'll see how long it is before I buy more spray paint and redo them all ;) )
I got this canvas idea from a blog I follow, and thought it was so cute. I used WA state because that is the first place that Frans told me he loved me :) (that, and it still kind of feels like 'home' to me!) I just printed out an outline of the state onto photo paper, spray painted the canvas, and then mod podged the picture on.
Maybe I need some kind of vinyl wall saying above the collage? Or should I take the canvas out of the collage and just leave it with frames? critique please...
that's it for now...
