In addition, I picked up a few colors at the hardware store for $4 a quart (sample paint). It's perfect. We have a beautiful turqouise (The color that I want to paint the kitchen cupboards), yellow, red, brown, black, white and green. I drew a huge tree in the corner of the room. Shanon painted it brown and we will add details later. Shanon painted a funny looking bird on the door, and I painted a couple of crazy different birds, and three flowers one of which Shanon added a toothy smile too, I painted a couple of bubble bees, Shanon added the wings. It was so much fun working with Shan. It's really fun for me to be reminded of all the things I love to do, like paint, and watch how he goes with it. We really enjoyed it.
The Honey and his amazing critter - he is a fantastic artist
Bailey is such a helpful person.
Notice the sunflower smile - thank you honey for your help on that guy. He's wonderful.
Here are some close ups of the paintings.
It took her almost an hour yesterday to fall asleep in her crib. Tonight, less than three minutes.....if I only would have known it would be that simple I probably still would have waited until now to do it because this is the longest stretch of time off of work I've had in several months.
Projects coming up;
A Closet for the Mamma (this week - double yay)
A Loft bed for the boys (before school starts.....must get organized! Small spaces = extra difficult to put two boys in one room)
Chainsaw for wood - priority prior to winter
Travel down the West Coast, Ocean trip (this fall)
Write a novel in 30 days - this I am excited about. I can tell because my stomach jumps when I think about it.
Hmmmm. That seems like a lot of change still coming up - keep it coming, I am LOVING it.
