When browsing the hello lidy blog looking for this project, I came across her Chalk Board Canvas DIY. Genius! I know lots of people have done it but I never noticed till I saw her blog (Kristen did one and I guess I never saw the post!). I had bought a huge canvas months and months ago just because I knew I'd use it and it was cheap (9.99 euro) from Aldi (which I had no idea they have these in the states too). So anyway, I saw it, I ordered the chalkboard paint from Hobby Lobby (I didn't know I could order from them!!!! So MANY "I didn't knows" lately!) and painted it. I drew Ava's frame and let her draw inside it and Emily drew her own frame and then drew inside it. They used Chalk pens.

Above is a Koji made from the Wee Wonderfuls book. I Shrunk it down when I printed the pattern pieces hoping I could put it on the Christmas tree (I made it back in November) but it's not really small enough and I Frankenstein sewed it. I want to make another one but smaller and of course sewn better:)
Emily and the sun that lasted only a minute or so. We still have snow on the ground and it's....MARCH!
This child will be the death of me. Heart attack is Jon's prediction. She wrote all over her leg, stomach, neck and face with a pen and in this picture she circled her booboo that she won't stop picking at. This thing is never going to heal. I keep telling her her leg is going to fall off if she keeps opening up the scab. I tell her all sorts of things to discourage her from everything she does but it doesn't matter!! She cut her hair again. This time she cut half of her bangs off. So "party on one side, business on the other". She wears me out and makes me want to drink. I had not been around kids much before my own and I had no idea they could be born with so much personality. From the beginning she has been testing me! She ate her own poop right before I birthed her for goodness sake (Meconium Aspiration)!I have a cautious child and a crazy child. Heaven help me:)
