Hey there! I am excited to show you what I have been working on the last couple of days...in between my computer work that is :) I try and get a little creative time in everyday. I need it! I was just telling my boss the other day that I feel like I need to take care of my creative soul more :) Definitely trying to make that more of a priority so I can be better at my job!
I saw this idea on Pinterest the other day and it was just what I needed to get a project going. As much as I adore my boys, I am having anxiety thinking about SUMMER and having them home all day with me. Working full time from home is a major blessing but it has a few challenges. When I saw this idea I knew it would help cure the "boredoms" of summer.
I used the new Fiesta Stack out at Jo-Ann to make sure this project was full of FUN!! I just love these colors and prints and think it was the perfect choice.
I decorated my wide mouth jar using the Fiesta Stack, May Arts Ribbon and my Silouette. My staples :) I love the lid! I painted the rim and covered the top with our 6x6 Cork Stack. Love that the cork paper is adhesive! Made it super easy and boy does it stick. Used some paint for the yellow polka dots and some rhinestones to jazz it up. Remember, FUN is what I was going for :)
I cut some of the Fiesta paper down to fit inside my printer and I printed activities to do on the white side. I got my list HERE and think she did a great job of coming up with ideas. Some are fun for the kids, some are chores. The deal is, if you come tell me you are bored you pick something out of the jar and you have to do it. No matter what. Once the paper is picked, I will put it in a baggie so it doesn't go back in the jar. Oh and quite a few of them are chores, hee hee. I left out some that didn't work for my boys but most all of them were great ideas!
The boys are super excited to give this a try this summer, I will let you know how it goes!
