The Masterpiece!

Remember that 'Crafty Bug' that bit a few weeks ago?  Well, that day Priya and I went outside, I pulled out a canvas and paint and I set her up and let her go to town!  Below is the result:

Notice the cutie hand and feet prints?  I think she did great!  I really didn't help, except to steady her feet a few times and help get her paint set up!  After painting the base coat in the morning she couldn't wait to do more, so in the afternoon she finished it off!

After we had our little painting party I stumbled across this blog with a great idea for spicing up toddler painting in a fun and creative way - check it out! It's called "Impress your Kids" and it even starts out with a nice tutorial about how to cut out paper letters really quickly and easily - but that's for my next 'day off'!

We actually attempted a few 'crafty' things today with a little modge podge, some scrapbook paper and
some block letters, but I'm not sure how they'll turn out yet so we'll save that for another day :)  It's truly my first real project attempting to decoupage so we'll see how we do! (Priya is always my little helper, hence the 'we' - could you imagine Joe attempting to use Modge Podge! HA!)  So hopefully you'll hear a success story someday soon!  If not, I'm sure the letters will end up back in my closet where I found them this morning, awaiting future enlightenment and rescue.  Till then!
