These pictures are totally unrelated to this post, but I could not resist.
There are so many incredible ideas out there. One of my favorite late night treats is to navigate my way through blog land and get inspired. I know, that might sound pretty lame, but chances are if you are reading this, you have similar interests. By the time I get the kids to bed and finish all the lunch making, dish washing, clothes folding and mess cleaning I am really too tired to do much else. It actually works out well. My husband is in his Netflix world on the couch. I am sitting across the room in heaven reading about sewing projects I will someday do and new ways to use chalk. We both have a glass of wine and exchange occasional smiles. The first snow of the season is on the ground, the house is cozy... life is good!
Zakkalife has a beautiful idea of switching from paper to leaves as a painting surface.
I love this sweet drawing book from Paint Cut Paste. A beautiful way to keep and treasure the many drawings made by your child.
The Mother Lode is truly loaded with good stuff. I especially love this embroidered family hands project.
I really want to get some little ones together and make some paper shapes like the ones featured on The Artful Parent.
And there is so much more out there!
