Preparing for Preschool: What you Didn’t Expect

Preparing for Preschool: What you Didn’t Expect

There’s a children’s book by Rosemary Wells, titled: Mama Don’t Go! If you aren’t familiar, it’s about a little girl named Yoko, who’s excited to start school and make new friends. But the problem is, she doesn’t want her mom to leave. So she stays. […]

Halloween Rocks!

Halloween Rocks!

Painting Halloween Rocks

It’s funny because, a jolly old man in a red suit that goes, ho ho ho, scares the bejeebers out of Els. But a spooky white ghost that goes whoooooooo? No way. She loves it. She loves Halloween. I know, partly because she doesn’t quite understand what ghosts and mummies really are… But still, this is coming from a girl who told me to tell Santa to just leave the presents in our mailbox instead of coming down our chimney while we’re asleep. Not to mention the cookies and milk. Those had to stay outside too.

But yes, it’s October. And let the Halloween decorating begin…

I bought a couple bags of medium sized rocks from Michael’s with Halloween colored acrylic paint. We decided to paint some Halloween rocks! There’s Els loving every minute of it. Of course, she had to add some pink. Nothing is official until she adds some pink.

And here’s some of my work. Thank you. Thank you. Those dots took a lot of work.

Painting Halloween Rocks

This was actually a really fun and simple project. The base paint needed a couple coats to cover the rocks and then the rest was easy. Now we can scatter them outside on our front porch and garden. Stay tuned. Lots more of Halloween things to come! In the meantime, check out our cute glittery Halloween pumpkins!

Wishbone Wishing

Wishbone Wishing

Is it wrong that I want to get rid of everything in my home and completely REDECORATE? From scratch. It isn’t, right? I mean, really, what’s life without a little change…? A new ‘perspective’ even. Since we are now actively in the process of finding […]
