Hello!! Welcome to another crafting week at fivecraftysisters! What I wanted to share with you this week is something I did for my children last Christmas. I got the idea from a Pottery Barn Teen catalog but I adapted it just a little. Here is the original:
It looks pretty cool and like some art that all my kids would like in their rooms. I wanted to change some of the messages, though, so I thought maybe I should make my own! I bought used magazines from my library for 5 cents and used some magazines of my own. Over a few months, I cut out quotes and ideas and phases that I thought described my children or things I wanted them to aspire to or just something to remember! It was quite inspirational for me as I thought about each of my children and what kind of people they are and what they can become!! I then took an artist's canvas from Hobby Lobby and painted it a color they like and Modge Podged all the cut outs on. And here is what they got:
And they all loved it. Even my teenage boy whose goal in life is to make a face in every picture I take!! But I wouldn't have it any other way!
I love you, my little monkeys!!
