My walls have been bare since moving to our little apartment. We have a tight budget and so just going to buy decor for our walls is somewhat out of the question. So, as I wandered the aisles of Target on Sunday evening I found myself in the folder and notebook aisle. There were folders on clearance and I brightened with the idea to buy some of them to cut out and frame for my walls! I didn't have to worry too much about buying frames because on Christmas my aunt-in-law got me a boxed set of black frames. So, in all, my wall decor cost me roughly $3.00!
The first thing I did was take a folder, open it up and cut it in half. I then cut to size as I went. It was very time-consuming but lots o' fun!
Today, I was invited to another friend's house, Jaime, for a craft day. Jaime also goes to our chapel and she is majorly into crafting, of all sorts! It was a fun day to get together and there were other ladies from the chapel that were able to come as well. I picked up Anele and her son Izaac to come along since they only have one vehicle and her hubby uses it to go to work. I'm happy to be able to pick them up!
Anyway! So, Anele had some canvases she was glad to let me use and some paints and we each painted a picture for the kid's room. I painted Henry's pirate ship and Anele painted Naomi's hula cow.
We didn't have enough time or another big canvas to paint one for Marcail....another day. But, I'm so happy with the way these turned out. It was such a fun day to visit and paint at Jaime's house. The kiddos got to play with the other kids that were there as well. Such a blessing of fellowship.
