good ideas from a 6 year old…

Here are a couple more crafts I have finished. The first is my very first canvas! I made it for a girlfriend who has worked very hard for a very long time and finally got her bachelors degree, even graduating with honors! I love this quote from Thoreau and I thought it was fitting for the occasion. I painted the canvas then used stamps to do the lettering (next time, I'll use my cricut!)

The next project started with two orange crates. I spray painted them white and added scrapbook paper from TPC Studio to the inside. I WAS going to just use them as shelves for nick knacks but then my daughter saw them and said "they would look really nice with a picture inside" and the lightbulb went off in my head! I added these beach pictures of my daughters plus some of the shells and rocks we found at the beach this year! They are now hanging on the wall in my downstairs bathroom! I love having crafty children!

Thanks for visiting! 
Happy Crafting!
