A Creative Family

It's Thursday!  You know what that means, don't you?  Time for Simply Feather's Paint With Me challenge.  After you look at my stuff, why don't you head over there to see what everyone else made?  Who knows?  You might leave inspired.

Here's what Dylan made this week...


Other than cutting the egg carton, I didn't help.  I just sat back and watched him create, loving the look of concentration he gets on his face.

This one, I finished a few weeks ago, for my Mom's birthday.  But, I was rushing to get it done in time, and used the wrong adhesive, so I made her return it, because stuff was already falling off.  Dylan made the picture of him and "Mi-Mi" holding hands, and wrote "I love Mi-Mi".  I just made them smaller, so they would fit.

Remember this from last week?

Well, I made it into this...
One problem.  I need one more T!  It is supposed to say "The Great Outdoors" at the top.  So, now I have to go back to Jo-Ann Fabrics or Michael's and get a whole new sheet, just for one letter.  Of course, you know whichever store I go to first will be the wrong one, right?  GAH!  Another unfinished project!

Now, I've been talking about my talented artistic husband, so I thought I would show you what he's been working on.  I'm fairly certain once you see this, you'll forget all about what I made.  Try to throw a little love my way, too, okay?  My ego is fragile, you know.

I'd start at JoAnn. I think you'll be coming to the one near me, so at least if you have to go to Michael's, too, it's not so far.

You are one creative family! Love Dylan's catepillar and all the scrapbook type things you have done. Just wonderful!
Your husband's little documentary is fantastic! I just love it. Dylan must have felt like a star!

Thanks for stopping by this morning.

That video is AWESOME! Jim did a great job!

And I love the projects you are doing with Dylan and the frame for your Mom - I can only imagine how much she treasures it.

I was laughing out loud. That kid can move! And while I will give props to your hubby for the video, I'm going to go out on a limb & give you props for those mad dance skillz you've passed on to him!

Oh my gosh, Jen! Your family is so artistic and that's awesome! Jonathan and I did some art this week too and I totally forgot with everything else going on to post it.

Jim's clip is awesome, I have to admit. He's a talent, that's for sure. He's probably thinking "Oh please...this thing? It takes no time at all..." but for us simpletons that was awesome!
