I don't feel like I have posted many crafty posts lately and I have been working on a few fun things recently. I have started my Christmas projects and even got hired to make one of my bunk bed playhouses that I posted a long time ago. So before I got too busy I wanted to share one of the things I am planning for the kids this year.
On Thursday I had a hankering to do some artwork. I miss drawing and painting like I used to. It is hard to make time with 3 little ones. But this time I decided to "neglect" them for a bit and do something fun. But I didn't feel too bad because the kids got to color at the table with me while I worked. And Emma entertained herself with some fruit puffs and a metal bowl and spoon that I gave her.
I have had these "make a plate" kits that I got from my mom and decided to give them a try. I thought it would be fun to give each of the kids their own personalized plate for Christmas. They may have watched me draw them but I think they'll still be surprised when they see them in plate form. Here's how they came out.
I am sending them off today and can't wait to see the finished product.
