Believe it or not, Darbee Rae and I spent the ENTIRE day at home yesterday. Not even once did I leave the house. Now...ask my mom or my hubby and you know that is VERY unusual for me. I like to go and so does Darbee Rae. BUT...with all of the going we have been doing the past two weeks with cheer camp and swim lessons, I was ready for a day at home to do whatever I wanted.
That's what we did. We slept too late and got up and did much of nothing. I did manage to get the laundry done. The house was clean, so I devoted the rest of the day to doing whatever.
We decided to get crafty. Thanks to Pinterest, I had found a project I wanted to do with Darbee.
We started with a blank canvas. I found a 2-pack at Hobby Lobby for $7.99 and used my 40% off coupon. That was a great deal! They are 16x20.
Hubby and Darbee Rae spent the evening at the park the other night and I had a crafty party with myself. Hehe.
I got a few things done with my Cricut machine that I had been wanting to do and this was one of them.
I cut out the letters I wanted and put them on the canvas.
I love this saying. I try to live by this. (Smile)
I turned the canvas over and rubbed hard to make sure they were stuck.
I got out my acrylic paint and chose the colors.
I wanted to hang this in the living room, so I chose warm colors that would match.
Darbee Rae was so excited to help with a "mommy project."
I let her finger paint all she wanted.
She couldn't believe she could actually paint over the letters!
She did a great job!
I even got in on the fun too!
Here is our final result.
I love how it turned out!
I can't wait to find a special place to hang it.
Darbee had been wanting her own craft project. In Michael's the other day, she picked out a picture frame to paint. While we had the paint out, she decided to paint it too!
She did a great job! I will have to post a picture of her finished project! It turned out great.
So...we had a great afternoon.
We accomplished a lot. It was a lot of fun!
Needless to say, we got out of the house today! We called Nana and headed out to lunch.
I hope all of you have had a great day and done something to make you happy!
Until next time...
