Cut the sponges out in various shapes, and then glue them to the tops of your caps. Voila! Sponge stamps.
These were a huge hit with the boys. They wash up easily, and I think we'll be getting a lot of use out of them, whenever we paint.

Camden: It's going fine.
Me: What are you doing right now?
Camden: Griffin's pretending that I'm the Bad Guy, but he's really the Bad Guy.
Me: So, tell me about your fabulous mohawk.
Camden: All I can say is it is cool. Can I go play now?
Me: No. Humor your mother for a minute.
Camden: But Mummy, I don't want Griffie to mess up my line of cars!!
Me: Okay, I'll make this quick. Shall we talk about Titanic?
Camden: Okay...my favorite part is the bow. I like the pictures of the bow on the bottom of the ocean.
Me: Tell me about your brother.
Camden: He's annoying all the time and he always breaks stuff that I build out of Legos and it is annoying.
Me: What's your favorite food?
Camden: My favorite foods are tacos and cookies. And carrots with dip.
Me: Favorite cartoon?
Camden: Wonder Pets are kind of lame. I like Pokemon.
Me: If you could be anything in the world, what would you be?
Camden: The thing I want to be is myself because I have fun. I want to be a shipbuilder but only if I don't have to get a lot of shots to be one. I don't like shots.
Camden: You're welcome!

So, I took it apart and gave all of the pieces a good scrubbing. Then, I gave each of the trays a coat of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer in White. Next came a couple of coats of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor spray paint in Banner Red Gloss. Once it was dry, I put it all back together, and, voila! I had a brand new rolling bar/tea cart for my dining room:
I love how it turned out, and I'm glad I finally figured out what I wanted to do with it.

I love the little wooden peg people that you can get in just about any craft store...they are really inexpensive, and there are so many things you can do with them. I saw this idea on one of my new favorite blogs recently, so I thought I'd give it a try this past weekend. I love the way it came out, and I hope that Violet will like her, too!
I made this Superman for my nephew. I made a Spiderman for Griffin, but he went missing less than 4 hours after his paint was dry, and the Batman I made for Camden vanished not long after (thus, no photographic evidence of their existence)! Hopefully they will resurface, but in the meantime, I'm having a hard time not painting up a whole little family of peg dolls!

It appears that there isn't a roof on the fort, but Steve used some clear plastic stuff, so that daylight would still shine in....love that idea!
The boys wanted a little sign to hang outside the door, so here is what I came up with.
I was happy to finally find a home for this nifty cow bell - - my mother got it for me at Stonewall Kitchen back in 2005 when I was home for a visit. Unfortunately, our house is brick so I've never been able to hang it up!
