Step Away From the Sewing Machine...


... and make something new. Inspired by a tutorial on Craftster, posted by weighanchor (a super talented and awesome Etsian), I just HAD to try this watercolor. I haven't painted anything since 8th grade art class so I didn't have very high hopes. I shocked myself! Aside from the faces, it's not too bad! My hubby looks hot in his uniform even in watercolor and with no lips too. If only my hair could really be that full! I'm going to frame it and put it on my too-naked living room wall.

My tiny Picasso is painting obsessed. When I bought the supplies for this I had to get him his own paints as well. I picked them up the other night right before bed, so he couldn't paint that night. I told him he could paint in the morning after breakfast. Wouldn't you know it, that child was out of bed and waking me up at 6am yesterday. "Mommy, can I have some Cheerios, so I can paint now PLEEEEASE?" He painted me 20+ pictures yesterday! I'm tempted to make them into a notebook. I've bound everything else cardboard in my house by now with that damn binding machine. I have also really cut down on putting things into recycling though since everything becomes a notebook!

Speaking of, HAPPY EARTH DAY! Go plant a tree. Pick up litter. Work in your garden. Do something good for this Earth we're lucky to have!
