Ever since the boys were very small I have wanted to paint and decorate their bedroom so that they would have a fun place to play and a nice place to sleep at night. Now I don't know about your kids but my kids are forever changing their minds... one day they like fish, the next day they like monkeys, the day after that it's transformers or spiderman. I have always been a little bit hesitant to spend money on decor that they like today when tomorrow they could come tell me that they hate it, so I have always just opted to do nothing. Anyways, a few weeks ago I was walking through the dollar store (which happens to be one of the best stores in Fort Mac) and I came across these gigantic blank canvas pictures and the wheels in my mind started to turn... I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them but I was positive that I needed to have them. I didn't buy them right away because really, what on earth did I need them for? So that night when I was tucking Evan and Logan into bed I was laying there looking around their room and the best idea of my life ( okay maybe not that good, but close) came to my mind... How fantastic would it be to go back to the dollar store, purchase the canvas pictures and a whole bunch of paint and then let the boys paint their own wall art work?!?! Pretty stinkin fantastic!! So that's exactly what I did!!
Now for those of you that know me well, you know that I am somewhat of a perfectionist and have a hard time just letting things happen so this particular project was insanely hard for me to not micro-manage... that being said, I think I did a pretty good job of letting the boys be creative.
On another note... ever since the boys learned how to paint, they have been making art work all over the place with anything they can get their hands on.... Side walk chalk, crayons, yogurt, and the newest one... MUD! Thank God that I own half of all the cleaning supplies in Fort McMurray!
Anyways... Thanks for stoppin by :)
