Gettin Creative

The first craft of the day dealt with mod podge. My mom and I bought simple wood frames and cute scrapbook paper at Michael's on the way home from the airport on Friday. I traced and cut out the shape of the frame on the paper, covered the frame in mod podge glue, put the paper on, and then put more glue on top. It was a super easy project that my mom learned about at our Ward's Super Saturday. I want to put a cool quote in the dragonfly one and my mom wants to put a family picture in the red and cream one. Our next art project was Riley's idea...




Bored on a Saturday Night... what do we do?? We decide to make t-shirts. We ran to Walmart to get the supplies and rushed home to let our creative minds run wild. Riley is wearing the one he painted and I am wearing the one I painted. Which one do you like? Sam helped control the creativity with his excellent fashion advice. I think with the three of us, we could have a pretty successful clothing business. Anybody have suggestions for a clothing company name? We used acrylic paint on the shirts... we weren't really sure if it would work, but the Walmart Associate in the craft department supposedly doesn't work in the craft department and didn't have any idea what paint to use on t-shirts. So helpful. We will see how successful we were after we wash them for the first time. But the creativity didn't end there...


After watching a movie, Sam ditched us for his friends, so me and Rye went to get ice cream. We love ice cream. We live ice cream. I got the vanilla cone and Riley got the chocolate shake. On the way there Riley was experimenting with the camera. He had it on the no flash setting so the slower shutter speed made the lights look pretty cool. Both of his pictures remind me of...worms. Flourescent worms. In a race. go! go! go!

Your shirts are pretty random, even for you guys. John said you should give the third one to Sam. Looking at the ice cream made a little drool come out the side of my mouth. Sometimes it stinks living in the middle of no where at times like this... oh, and it's Sunday.

How fun! Love the shirts! How cool that you actually have brothers that'll do things like that with you. Luckily, I have a husband who puts up with my crazy ideas and will even dress up with me! (did you see the ugly, disgusting mullet pic?)
