My 3 Year Old Made This

It's the summer and when it rains, you cant go to the beach or pool. My little princess gets so sad when she cant play outside that I have to think of something creative to make inside fun =) Today, we made a wooden picture frame together. We first painted the natural wood frame blue. She was so excited to wear her smock! I then gave her one of my sponges and she dipped it into a lighter color blue paint. My 3 year old had so much fun sponging this frame. Finally, we glued on a pre-made rubber ducky that she picked out from Michaels. So, there you have it. Rainy day fun that costs a few bucks!

Thanks for looking,

Altered Wooden Paperclip

Modge Podge & me - we go way back. I am talking way back to old school paper mache projects in elementary school. I try my best to keep it out of sight so that I can control the altering impulses. I just had to alter this cutie paperclip. I couldnt help myself ;)
To do this quick project, I took apart the wooden paper clip and put the metal piece to the side. Next, I painted the wooden paperclip blue to match the designer paper. After the paint dried, I traced the paper against the wooden paperclip. I cut the paper out for its front, back, and sides. I then put a thin coat of modge podge onto the clip and adhered the designer paper to it.
I allowed each section to dry before I moved onto the next. I then took my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China and inked the edges and tops of the paper. I sealed the entire project with another thin coat of modge podge. After everything has dried, I put the metal piece back onto the wood so that it became a paperclip again. If you stand the paperclip on its legs, you can use the opening to hold a picture, paper, or post-it notes as I have here in my picture. I am also a huge fan of double sided designer paper. This paper is from Fancy Pants and was in the July Contest Kit. Since I really like both prints, I used both sides of the paper for each side of the paperclip. This project did not take more than an hour to complete.

I hope you enjoyed my quick project,

P.S. Do not forget that we are doing a Premiere Design Team Call for Wish On A Scrap. Please email me your applications by August 15, 2008. Also, I am doing PIF Blog Candy and will announce a winner on July 25, 2008. Dont forget to enter =)
