Painting Pumpkins, Pine-cones, and Pebbles

We skipped the carving pumpkin's so far and decided to paint Selah's Pumpkin.  She loves to paint so much so after we were finished with the pumpkin she went on to pine-cones and then pebbles. 







 Tongue shot!  :)

She's so into it! What a great activity! I love that you had her paint pine cones, I've never thought to do that. Awesome! Thanks so much for linking this up to Monstrously Creative Saturday! :)

She does look really into it! We let R paint a pumpkin every year instead of carving.. thus far. We haven't painted his yet, but I look forward to it. I love how she went on to paint anything she could! Too cute! Thanks for sharing.

I'd also like to invite you to check out one of my posts. If she loves painting, I think she'll get a kick out of this. I call it "Chuckin Pumpkin Painting." R had a lot of fun with it today. Here's the link...

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
