I've been busy....

I got a great idea from another blog..... to do silhouettes of each of the boys. I have always loved the old timey feel of them and I tried to do them last year but it was such a pain to try to trace them while they stood still - I gave up!!!! When I found this idea and all I had to do was take a picture of them I was immediately trying it but with a little flair of my own! For those of you who know me this should come as no surprise!!
This is what I did.......
These are hanging on the big wall in the kitchen and I love them!!! I still can't believe how easy they were to do!

I painted these wooden mini frames, reduced the size of the silhouette, added some ribbons and they are going to be ornaments for my christmas tree!

You guys should try this it was fun! If you click on the button on the side of my blog you should go straight to the idea for it! Have fun!
I have been working away at my advent calendar so I will be posting pics of that tomorrow after work! Work is putting a cramp in my crafting and painting time!!! I have a lot of things I want to get done - including christmas presents - and I just don't have enough time!!! AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Maybe if I wasnt so crafty and didnt want to do it all by hand....whose fault is that????
