What ever happened to...

I just accidentally had my phone camera sync with my Dropbox. (If you never heard of a Dropbox go here and get one. I can't imagine life without it now.) 
This was actually a happy accident because I wound up doing something I had been meaning to do for 2 years, download all my phone photos to my computer.  I was amazed I had over 3,000 photos on there!  I have only gotten through the past year, but I found some stuff I meant to share with you but never did. Ooops....

Like a revised tutorial on how to make the big "brass" KW urchin...
I had attempted this before and did so-so.  The real secret here is using the SOLID styrofoam balls and wood skewer sticks.  That foam doesn't break apart like the other "scratchier" kind.
Those sticks aren't going anywhere!
Just spray the whole shanoodle with gold spray paint and you have a big pretty for next to nothing.


I also came across randomness like this...

My poor children hate work because it is all Mom does.  
(Thomas is sitting on my lap right now waiting for me to finish this so we can play Hot Wheels.)  
To help distract them and buy me some time to work I let them play in my office.

Here they stole a scrap of a "Lola" O'verlay and made their own crayon holder with plastic cups. 
Gotta have them using ingenuity at a young age.

And I found this gem.   
Doesn't everybody sleep-eat? We have actually caught Joe in the fridge at 2 AM.
 No child was harmed or choked in the making of this video...

We are on school vacation week (again) so I will be playing with these munchkins for the rest of the day.
Hope you have a a good one!

Thanks for the heads up -- I need to have that! I updated the Chiang Mai mural photo on my post. I thought it was gorgeous before, but I love the updated even more!

Love the mural, Chiang Mai is my most favorite Schumacher pattern. Did you hand paint the mural? is it wall paper? please tell us all how you got that great scale and the colors so close to the original pattern.

Love your blog btw.

Bill

p.s. reposted your "how to" on stenciled walls.
