We painted the inside of three ornaments by squeezing the paint in the hole at the top and spinning the ornament around to coat the inside. This gorgeous gold glitter is always the first paint color chosen, and my painter chose the other two colors based on what he thought would go well with gold glitter.
To make the word, I elmered the letters, and we carefully placed these bead-things. They have a proper name, but I can't remember it. Eyelets? or is that something else? Anyway, the word didn't come out as neatly as I had imagined in my head, but if you know to look for the word "holy", it helps.
Man, with the close up and flash, you can really see every imperfection here. This brown paint is actually called "golden brown", hence the going well with the gold glitter.
I got him to laugh (and give me a real smile) but then his eyes were closed so we were going to try again.
Here is the try again picture, complete with open eyes. Sort of.
(On a completely side note: he originally came downstairs in short sleeves and shorts, because he wanted to be Superkid, Superman's son. I told him he needed long sleeves and pants, so he put these over top his summer pj's. He said that now he was the Superman that has regular clothes' son.)
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
