A Very Creative Day

My inspiration for the memo board

I have to say, finally getting the homeschool room cleaned up really gave a jolt to my creative side…and Emily’s.

So while she has immersed herself in the minutiae of face paints, I have catapulted myself down the rabbit hole of Mod Podge Rocks. I’ve got two small projects in the works…a memo board and a tiny version of backgammon that will be played using buttons. I just need to find some cute little miniature dice to go with it.

I painted some 4x4 tiles with the blackboard paint and selected four decorative papers

I’m rocking a handful of face paint designs on my arms and face, including two rainbows with starry dots running down my arms.

She says this is a snake, but it looks like the Hungry Caterpillar to me!

And it has really been a lot of fun creating things with my daughter today. She’s reached that age where she isn’t needy or requiring assistance with every tiny detail, so we work side by side on our projects, doing very different things, but content with one another’s company.

I'll pull a hummingbird from here and add it to one or two of the tiles...

It’s peaceful and rejuvenating.

The memo board will be mounted to a piece of plywood, a strong ribbon added to use to hang it with, and then I can keep it here, sell it or give it away. Fun and easy!

Who knows, maybe I’ll make a class out of it!

I’ll show pics and details of the backgammon board later today over on The Deadly Nightshade. Make sure to check it out!
