Crafting Again!

Matthew is gone this week staying with his Oma and Opa in Idaho. How can you tell? Because these stairs going up to his room are clean! Usually he uses them as a showcase for Lego creations, Nerf gun artillery and whatever else his is into at the moment. I love having them clean, miss the boy though.

The other way you can tell I am down one kids is I suddenly seem to have time to craft this week! Josh still naps and Brittany entertains herself so I have been working on a few projects that have been waiting around awhile. This is going to be a Summer quilt. I was in a couple of vintage sheet swaps and have been waiting for just the right project to use them in. Since I never figured out what that was I decided to use them in a lightweight quilt. I love the sherbety (I think I made that word up) colors.


I also decided to do something with these frames. I have seen some fun things people have been doing with gilt frames and paint and wanted to try. I picked these up from the thrift store.



After I spray painted them I cut out a few silhouettes. We are fast becoming the silhouette house.


I spray painted a glass vase black to put the sunflowers in and there you go! Total cost $2.50, Makes me want to work on my house again. Why is it that having one less child everything seems so much easier? And it doesn't matter which kid either!

Thank you so much for your comment. You described my feelings exactly. Might I add you are one talented woman! I love all your fun crafts. I can't wait to really start some serious crafting again. Your dolls are adorable too. Me thinks Davy just might need one for her 1st birthday. Anyways thanks again- and I hope all is well with your sister's little one. Ruth(the mom)
