Christmas Tree Card:Prek

No matter how much a prepare materials I can not seem to have a single Prek class project turn out like I imagine:-( but these aren't bad;-)

Wreath Christmas Card

My sweet 1st graders made these cute wreaths. My glue was a disaster, however! Haha!

Handmade cards: ornaments

Sorry for the sideways shots! 

Christmas Cards for Soldiers

This is the first round my 2nd graders made for a special request of cards for 5 soldiers deployed. Too cute- their messages made me want to cry!

It has been a long time since I bothered blogging. But here I am wanting to kick back in and journal my life:-) Let's start off with a post on B man! He is 2 and 3 months! Time has flown.
Here he is at the Greensboro, NC children's museum with his Baby

VA Tech game! 


He love love loves his tricycle.

This face.

All boy, throwing and collecting rocks to throw for later.


Enjoying the Sandbox the men on the Whittle side of the family built him for his second birthday!

Well, promising it won't be another half a year before my next post!

Afternoon DIY Project: lyric art

Made this for my hubby today while my little man was napping. 
I just used a canvas I had on hand (11x14) arranged vinyl letters (4in, 3in, and 1 in) I bought from michaels and had on hand for a similar project I made for my SIL. I cut each individual letter out and arranged  in a quote I picked out from our wedding song. Mod podged over the letters so they would stay better and then before it dried, painted with blue and green acrylic paint. Before the paint dried I peeled the letters off. I ended up having some issues with the paint so I made it look a little rougher by using some tissues to dab. I like the distressed look quite a lot actually!

Christmas tree paper collage

I thought this project with my kindergarteners was going to be a Pinterest fail... But it came together at the last minute! Definitely would be better for first grade and up! The original pin had white splatter paint but I already had glitter out so I went with it:-) sorry for the sideways pics!
