Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow.

Posted by in Everyday | 4 Comments

A rainy day, sore hips, and a long night with sniffly girls left me a little less than celebratory this morning. And while there are probably 15 projects I could have spent the day finishing, instead I started something new, in hopes that it would lift my spirits. I saw this tutorial a few weeks ago, and filed it away in my “Crafty craftsters” bookmarks folder, along with, oh, 200some other tutorials that have inspired me. A scramble through boxes to find my watercolor stuff, one naptime, and a couple scavenged frames later, I finally have something for over the mantle.

    When I was growing up we had a friend family that had five girls. The thing I remember most about their house was the silouettes on the wall of each of them.

    I’m inspired as well. Those are great. But then there’s the fact that I’m SO uncrafty that we don’t even OWN watercolor paint. Don’t judge me.

    Also, email coming your way!
