Hiya friends! I hope your weekend was grand! We had a nice one. This week on the blog I am going to be following a theme – it isn’t a new one to the blog but I decided it would be way more fun to give it a whole week instead of a post once or twice a month. Oh, so what is it? Creating! Winter brings a lot of indoor time and with that we either sit in front of a screen for too long or we end up making things! Lately, it has been the latter.
Today I’m showing off what the kiddos and I got into on Friday evening!
Friday afternoon I picked up the littlest member of the family from school. As we were pulling away from the church/school he announced he needed some art supplies. We like to get crafty on the weekends so I agreed we could get a few small things.
He opted for a wood treasure chest to paint and I opted for a clearance aisle scouring. This is what I found and I was super excited:
Alright, friends: This is where I tell you – I hate to scrapbook. But I love Heidi Swapp. To make memory books I choose Heidi Swapp products because this woman really understands girls like me!
I’m not one for spending hours making pages with stickers and embellishments. I like to stick a photo in the sleeve, add a sticker, and write a memory. I’m not all about that life of drawers, boxes, and filing cabinets of scrapbook material. Ir you are – I respect you and love you. (Hey Ashley, that’s for you babe!)
Random thought: I wish I was being paid for this post so I could buy Heidi Swapp stuff.
Also, let me reiterate this was on clearance at my local Michael’s so yes I broke my no spend for this. #didnotpersevere – In my defense it was $5. I know, no spend is no spend but at least it wasn’t something frivolous, right?
I had also picked up what is called “pre-cut decorative storage” as you see below. It was bought just plain jane natural wood. Thinking my nine-year old would like to do something with it, creatively, I put it in the cart. Well…she could care less about being creative and instead wanted to play Roblox (the addiction is real!) So I took this little creation on and pulled out my paint, scrapbook paper, and Mod Podge and went to town.
My addiction for pineapples continues.
