Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing great! It has been a whirlwind around our house lately! We are back into a school routine, everyone is going to bed good and getting up good! And they ALL love school! Yay!
With all five kiddos in school now, I get a few hours in the afternoons to do whatever I wish! This is all new to me. After 16 years of being home with our children, having time to myself is so different! I go to the gym for a couple hours and then I can get groceries or clean/do laundry ..but just to have that choice is kind of fun! And having the kids enjoy school makes it all that much more enjoyable for me!
We just got done moving and rearranging some furniture this past weekend, giving our two oldest boys their OWN bedrooms, we gave up our office for a bedroom, but that is o.k. it all worked out great! And in the moving process we got some major cleaning done, it feels SO good! I am now ready to start decorating for Fall! Yippee! Love, Love Fall! Like you all didn’t already know that! My most favorite season!
Speaking of Fall, I am FINALLY painting my Fall Salt Dough Bowl Fillers tonight! I always have to do this project in shifts. They are all cut-out, baked and cooled but that is as far as I got! Every project always has a way of eventually getting done, it just takes me a while to get from point A to point B!
I thought I would share some before pictures of the bowl fillers.
Here they are before they are baked~
Acorns are one of my favorite things about Fall~
Can’t wait to paint and finish the leaves and pumpkins of course~
Here they are baking away~
Do you think I made enough?….
Lots of sunflowers, I love sunflowers~
A little bit of Fall and Halloween in there~
So stay tuned, I took a break from painting to blog about these! My favorite part is distressing/sanding and dipping them in wax after they are painted. That is when they each take on their own primitive look!
I plan on making more. My daughter missed out on helping with this batch. I did these while she was at school. So we will be doing another batch together! Such a fun and easy project! In case you need or want the recipe and directions here is a link to Colleen’s blog And Baby Makes Five SO fun to make for all reasons and all seasons!
I better get back to my painting! I will share the finished products soon!
Oh, just for fun…here is what I have burning tonight! Sooo yummy! It is from Village Candle, it is called Cinnamon Stick. I just love the warm toasty scent! Enjoying it while I am painting…oh yea…I am supposed to be painting!! Bye!
Until next time, take care!
