Art, Hair, and Legos

Art, Hair, and Legos

HELP: I’m noticing that my phone camera pics are mostly blurry, and I’m not sure why. Anyone have any thoughts? iPhone 5c…… When I walked past this cabinet door at the Art Gala this year, I started crying. I can’t really tell you why. The Jeremy Camp song played through my head the whole night […]

The Little Mister

The Little Mister

Corban’s figured out the best “warmers” of the house and how to get as close to the heat as possible. I can find him here or on his favorite floor vent in our room at any time of day, but especially in the mornings in his pjs. (We’ve surely suggested long sleeves and socks, but […]

When a whole town gets artsy.

When a whole town gets artsy.

The first weekend in October, we found ourselves in Michigan with a date night on our hands (wahooooo!). We made our way to Grand Rapids where the entire downtown was covered in art–real, creative, layperson-understood art. It was incredible! I’ll briefly highlight a very select few of the pieces we viewed (and we only visited […]

Fun on the sidewalk and a twelve-week bump.

Fun on the sidewalk and a twelve-week bump.

A couple nights ago, I felt good. Good as in almost great! So we went outside after supper and drew and painted with chalk. Had quite the gathering of neighborhood kids (always my favorite) and even decorated some trees in the process. I was feeling so good that I quick texted our babysitter to see […]

The project that wasn’t supposed to be.

The project that wasn’t supposed to be.

A little while ago, I mentioned that one of James’ coworkers gave us an easel no longer desired by her grandkids. We were thrilled! After playing with it for a few weeks, I realized that the chalkboard side was pretty well worn through to the wood in several areas. So I decided to tape off the […]

Like father like son and printmaking fun.

Like father like son and printmaking fun.

James is an artist. His job, of course, is in graphic design, but in order to obtain that degree, he had to take art classes–drawing, painting, photography–and our house and my James-notes box have greatly benefited from this hobby. It’s his dream to put a little printmaking shop in our garage. Or a giant wrestling […]

While Jaeda naps…

…the big boys paint! And explore. Aiden always loves to explore. “AiDEN! It’s time to paint!” says bossy, task-oriented Corban to exploratory, free-spirited Aiden. Back to work. Aiden much preferred painting the dirt to the sidewalk. Practicing his artistic modeling pose. Enjoy this beautiful weather, y’all!  **link to sidewalk chalk recipe**

Corban’s Room Reveal

Corban’s Room Reveal

      Filtering through colors. Pinning photos and laying out stripe options using Valspar’s colors and Word. Measuring (what would I have done without you, Imelda??). Taping and taping and re-taping. Sealing the tape. (This is the tutorial I followed. I sealed it with the base color, just fyi, aaaand it worked!) Painting, painting, painting. […]
