Gardening: Get Kids Crafty May Blog Hop

Greetings! Welcome to the May Get Kids Crafty Blog Hop! This month, we had our kiddos create projects in the theme of "Gardening." You're in for a real treat. My family loves to garden, and I have a ton of gardening/floral stamps, so my daughter was really excited to pick through what I have and create a card that she gave to my mom for Mother's Day.

Miss R decided to work with the Garden Boots stamp set from Stampendous. She stamped a ton of images on to white paper first with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink from Imagine, then she colored them all with Memento Markers, also from Imagine. They are her absolute favorite markers, and she uses them a lot.

Next, Miss R painstakingly fussy cut all of her colored images and played around with the placement of them. She chose some colored paper, knowing that she wanted to use several layers. She chose to ink her card base up, since she couldn't find the exact shade of green she wanted in paper. She took her time and made sure things were to her liking before gluing it all down.

I really appreciate all of her time and effort that Miss R puts into her cards. She really knows what she wants to do when she's got an idea, and she works really hard at getting it "right." Needless to say, my mom LOVED her Mother's Day card, and Miss R was pretty proud of what she created. She truly loves to be crafty and work with all sorts of supplies. I'm proud of her. Now, if you haven't visited all of the stops on the hop, the full list is below. Please be sure to leave some love for all of the children that played along. Your encouragement means so much to them! I'm looking forward to next month's Get Kids Crafty hop, and I hope you will join us again. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
