This is Jack and his friend, Caitlyn. This was taken during a little soccer time-out....
This one cracks me up. Priceless.
See...here he is actually running after the ball. woohoo! Success!
I finished some wall art for the kitchen. The first canvas is 16 x 20 inches and I listed a bunch of mantras that our little family tries to live by. I used lots of paint, stamps, chipboard, letter stickers, foam stickers, patterned paper, and some fun number lace paper. For the smaller 8 x 10 inch canvases, I just used more paint, stamps, and patterned paper, as well as two 5 x 7 sepia-toned photos of us. The mantras on the big canvas say, in order listed on the canvas:
1. get to know YOU
2. seek truth
3. embrace life
4. make history
6. learn from your mistakes
7. imperfection is perfect
8. live, laugh, love
9. be authentic
10. enjoy the journey
The other set of wall art I created for the kitchen is three 6 x 6 inch canvases that are mounted above the counter. I used all the same products listed above on the other canvases. These canvases say a quote that I like, "sit long, talk much, laugh often".
I really like how these all turned out. My next wall art project is to create a large canvas with our "family manifesto" written out. Similar style as these canvases. It will be mounted on the large wall in our kitchen, near the large canvas shown above. Our family manifesto is just a fancy way of saying "mission statement", but I think "manifesto" sounds more fun. =) Matt and I are in the process of writing our manifesto out, then I will transfer it to a large canvas and paint away!
Have a great week!
