Addicted to Craft Supplies

I am sure I am not the only one out there that has a small problem with craft supplies. I have to avoid going to places like Hobby Lobby and Joann's. If I go into those kinds of stores with a few items to buy, I come out with at least a bag full if not more. What is it about the red clearance tags that makes them so hard to resist?

I have decided that I need to make a plan to USE the supplies I have accumulated. I tend to be very scattered when it comes to what I do. I have multiple projects going at once so of course nothing gets finished.

Well, NO MORE!!! (I just heard this in Scott Pilgrim's' voice.)

 I am going to go on a project binge. I got started last night organizing my supplies. I hope to have this stage finished by the end of the day. Then tomorrow the projects start!!!

I will have to add some pics of the things I get done so keep an eye out!

Oh, and if you are wondering how the "face painting" at field day went...let me just say I had a blast!!! I painted a ton of spiders on little boys arms, I did some hearts and I got to use a split cake to do rainbows.

I ordered the rainbow split cake on the pretext that I had volunteered to do face painting at the field day. I am so glad I did. There where a large number of kids that wanted rainbows and it was SUPER fast to paint the rainbow and then add some clouds. I LOVED it.

Stay tuned to see how my new plan works! Thanks for reading :)

Face painting JUMP

I have been face painting for over a year now...on my own kids of course. This coming Friday is the "field day" for my 2 year old. I asked the program director is I could volunteer to do face painting for the children. She said she would be delighted to have me. I will be doing some quick little designs on the children's arms. (This is so that the kids can see it and enjoy it.)

I am really excited. The last volunteer project I did was vacation bible school this past summer. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Since then I have really been trying to find other areas I can volunteer my time without cutting into my family time.

FRIDAY...all day. The children range from baby to 5 year olds. Both of my older children attended this program. I really love the teachers and the atmosphere they provide.

So with a big smile on my face I am jumping into trying out what I already do at home...paint on little kids. I am going to provide only a few options to paint so that the kids don't get overwhelmed with choices.

I hope I can sleep on Thursday night.

Thanks for stopping by,
