I love it when I can recycle / re purpose something in my little craft world. How many kids crafts are there using toilet paper rolls ! Dozens or more ! I collect these rolls for church , VBS , and pre school.
I saw this really neat idea, but more of a grown up decor version over on
And this is what I did with my kids on Monday...
And if you like this idea, check this image out:

I am becoming such a slacker with blogging ! Could it be I am bored with blogging? More likely~ I am boring you, the reader. I think I just want a change and trying to figure that all out. In the meantime I found this fabulous craft to share with you. I am going to give this one a try ! These plaques are so inexpensive in craft stores ( remember to use that 40% coupon ! ) This is a fabulous way to fill the space on a wall ! This idea found HERE
Paper and Plaques
Use those pretty bits and pieces of paper you can't bear to part with for this wall-art project. Local crafts stores carry inexpensive wood plaques in tons of shapes and sizes. Paint the plaques, cut the paper accordingly, and adhere. Finish with a coat of polyurethane if desired.

Friday is the last day of school ! It's going to be a long Summer ! This is a teacher gift for Grant's teacher... Mrs. Sturman. Jackson's teacher is a Mr. and he was given an itunes gift card.
( craftiness is probably not the way to go for him! )
The kids had a great school year ! Now, the task at hand is to fill these calendar days with activities. Library, Summer reading, Bible schools a few weeks, and some day trips and play dates> I am also hoping to provide opportunities for community service... helping at the local food pantry, cleaning up at the local library, visiting a senior center, helping others. I will try to update more regularly !
This is a link crediting the crayon monogram project Here is a link for some great ideas for Summer.
I am making a " Boredom Busters " jar that will hopefully
curb the whining on low key days.
Have a Great Summer !
