Staying Organized with Taylor’s Art Supplies

Taylor has a sudden interest for arts and crafts.  I’m just a little bit excited about this.  🙂

I like keeping all of Taylor’s coloring books, art paper, and colors together.  I recently found an idea I love on Pinterest… surprised?!?  🙂

She took a dishrack and created an organization system for coloring books and such.  I thought that was such a cute idea, but it still looked like a dishrack to me.  I decided to put my personal touch to it and look at what I made.

I know the pictures are a little dark but I made this after Taylor Tot went to sleep.  I can’t wait to see her face in the morning when she checks out her craft table.  🙂

This was a super easy and cheap way to stay organized.

My newest creation… Fall Wreath

Loving Pinterest and loving my week off. Today I made my fall wreath.

Letter I got from Hobby Lobby. 50% off this week making the total $5; Fake fall leaves; and spray adhesive (later in the project I found out that hot glue was much quicker and less sticky. Whole project took 30 minutes and that was with me digging around trying to find the glue gun. Quick, easy, and cheap project. What do ya think?

Taylor saying her prayers

The last few days Taylor has been wanting to say her good-night prayers by herself.  It’s really hard to hear her.  I’ll have to retake another video, but her sweet voice is so precious saying her prayers.  🙂

Sweet Dreams!

My First Pinterest

Several friends have told me about Pinterest for the last year.  Just recently a friend was telling me of some super cute crafts she was doing for her home and I had to check it out.  WOW!  We’re have I been?!?

Anyways, I was up until way-too-late last night looking around.  I found a whole shindig of crafts I’m dyeing to try. 

Here is the first.  🙂

Canvas is on sell this week at Michaels for 60% off.  I made 3 of these: one for us and one for each set of Taylor’s grandparents.  After buying the canvas (3), ribbon (black and white polka dot/ and orange), paint (black and white), a paint brush, and super glue it came to $10 but I did have a 40% off coupon (I think it was applied to the super glue because everything else was on sale).

Taylor loved helping me.  She had fun getting her foot painted.  This craft was super easy and a lot of fun!  I can’t wait to do more crafts!  I LoVe pinterest!!!!!

Labor Day 2011

For Labor Day this year we went to my parents lake house at Lake Oconee.  We had so much fun swimming, riding in the boat, laying out on the beach, and staying up playing cards.  However, after looking at all the pictures it looks like all we did was make sandcastles.  Taylor’s absolute favorite.

Putting feet in the sand.

I was wanting her to look at the camera and smile.  This is the look I got.  HAHA!  Is this the look I’ll be getting in 14 years?

Playing in the sand.

Making sandcastles on her bug towel.  She didn’t want to get her bottom sandy.  Haha!

Off to get more water.

Can’t stay still enough for a good picture.
