Today was a rainy day. I used to love rainy days, I'd curl up with a big mug of tea, read a book, do something creative, have a nap. Now I have 3 kids. Three very active kids. ( well ok one REALLY active, 2 kinda active kids). I really dislike rainy days.
Today's craft took all of 2 minutes to prepare, and unfortunately it kept the kids attention just about as long. I need to find something easy enough for them to do that will also keep them busy for at least 10 minutes.
I had to make one to show them how to do it, and I applied the glue and drew the smile. I love Ethan's rainbow hued guy. We also put magnets on the backs so they could play with them on the fridge downstairs. Too bad I banned them from the room about 20 minutes later for being too rambunctious.
In other creative adventures, here's a page I made a couple of weeks ago for a store sample using the new BabySaurus line from Little Yellow Bicycle.
The best part of this one for me was the orange swirls which were scraps left over from a diecut I made, and getting to use one of my new paper/pearl pens from Viva decor. These are my new go to scrapbooking supply. They are really just too much fun to use.
