Can I get an Amen?!?

I have no idea where the summer went.

But I am completely ready for school to start.

With just about a month left before we all hit the books, all of us getting a little sick of each other, and Violet taking a knee to the eye (she’s fine, just has to take it easy until the swelling goes down), I thought now would be a good time to steal some brilliance from the interwebs and start our own Craft Thursday.

 I picked some plain wood birdhouses at Michael’s while they were on sale, set up a painting station with an old tablecloth and cardboard box “palettes” and we all set to work.

Mine took about three times as long as theirs did and that was WITH them taking breaks to scooter around the block so Violet could “work on {her} vision”.

I think Abram had the most fun adding all the different colors to his palette and mixing them around. He called it making tie-dye.

Once they’re completely dry, we’ll be displaying these indoors, but if we were going to leave them outside we’d clear coat them with polyurethane.
