And, The reveal...

My husbands great idea?...
Use paint samples to make collages! 
I'll have to post more pictures later.  Right now he's trying to get me to work out!
New Years resolutions, gotta love 'em!

The husband said what?

After putting away the tree and decorations, the living room wall looked quite barren.  
Sitting and pondering the sadness of my walls, Stacy breaks the silence.
"I have an idea, if you trust me, and it will be nearly free!"
I think all I heard was,
 "Blah, blah, idea, blah blah blah FREE!"
So, I will leave you in suspense!
What idea did Stacy have?
How could it be free?
And will I trust him?

I feel brilliant!

I know that sounds so prideful, and you may already have received the revelation I'm about to reveal, but I can't help but share!
This Christmas, I tried to do as many crafty things for decoration as I could.  One of those was a painted wreath.  I first thought about wrapping my already hung pictures in wrapping paper and putting bows on them.  But then, I thought how awesome and fun it would be for my girls to do something.  
So, I wrapped a painting (a $10 picture from Target, not Monet or anything) with the white back of the paper showing.  
This would be our canvas. 
 I then pulled out the water based red and green paint and covered the girls hands.  
It turned out so cute!  

So cute in fact, I couldn't bring myself to just throw it away. 
 But how would I store it?
Why with the left over wrapping paper roll, you say?  
It stores so nicely!  Can't wait to pull it out next year (or should I say later this year)!
I pray you all had a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
