Things that are making me happy!

So here are a couple of things that are making me so happy today. My kids art! My friends Circe and Tiffany turned me on to the concept of painting on canvas for kids and our lives have not been the same since! I buy pretty inexpensive canvases at Walmart(three 9x12 for about $3.50) and they go for it. I know I have talked about doing this on the blog before, but I had to again because just look Brittany's latest! Can you tell we are already thinking about Valentine's Day around here?
And I love the after-holiday sales! I bought this Hello Kitty waffle iron today at Target for $13.88! I have been wanting it ever since I saw it and now it is mine! So just plan on seeing cute pictures of waffles sometime soon.
And last but not least, my kids went back to school today and our routine has been restored! I do miss them but they were excited to go and I am excited to get something accomplished!

I love Brittany's art! You and Tiffany are inspiring me to survive the winter! Instead of signing up for a bunch of stuff, like I usually do in January, I'm putting up valentines and planning out a bunch of parties. Keep the inspiration coming!

I love B's painting! It's really darling! Good Job Brittany!!! That waffle iron is pretty cute! Does it make kitty shaped waffles? Hello Kitty is the only kitty that I like.

SO cute! Both the canvas and the waffle maker.

What kind of paint did you use? I haven't used my acrylics in a while. Maybe I will let the girls go crazy and use them before they go bad.
