Home-Made Spray Paint

Today was so incredibly gorgeous here.  I wanted to spend every minute outside.  I started my morning early.  I put some pre-emergent down on the yard at 7:00 this morning to try to tackle the losing-battle I face with the weeds in the yard.  Watered it in and left it to dry while I went and worked at a client's house for the morning.  Then, I worked outside all afternoon...finishing up some furniture projects and a few little projects of our own.  Now if I could just get over this sinus/allergy c-rap that I have, life would be grand.

I'm super excited, because I sent the final tweeks of my new logo to my designer ( this afternoon.  I should have the final logo very soon.  Then, it's on to tackling this blog and making it look presentable!  Let me just say that after you see the logo, you're all going to want her to design something for you...she is simply amazing! :)  Can't wait to share it with you all.

Now on to something really fun for today.  Turns out they had gorgeous weather in Texas too.  My nieces are on Spring Break, so some of my nieces and nephews got together and had some fun in the sun with home-made spray paint.  Yeah, my sister, Holly, is pretty genius!!!  She's always coming up with AMAZING ideas for the kids.  In fact she's putting together a book right now that will hopefully be available soon with some of her ideas, tutorials, and pictures.  I'll let you know when it's available.  So here's the after shot of the spray-paint extravaganza:

To get started, she got some cheap spray paint bottles at Wal-Mart and Tempera paint at Hobby Lobby.  She took a board that they had at their house and wrapped it in a canvas (aka...old sheet) for the little artists'

 For the spray paint, she simply mixed the Tempera paint with water in the spray bottles.  It was a fairly running consistency...couldn't be too thick or it wouldn't have sprayed through the bottles.
 Artist Jordyn working on her masterpiece:
 Kyle Joe intently focused and making his artwork perfect:
 Little Avery cheesing it up while she painted her canvas:
 Double time:
 Here they are presenting their work of art.  Beautiful work my little angels!
 To get an additional project out of this, they will be cutting it into smaller pieces and framing it for the kid's art wall at my sister's house. 
How's that for cheap, easy, fun, entertaining, and getting two projects out of it??  As I sister is pretty much like superwoman (actually, all of my sister's are!!)

And just so you can put some faces with my sisters that I talk about, here's our "sister" picture at my youngest sisters outdoor wedding this past summer at my Dad's house in Oklahoma.  The 4-H club: Hilary, Hannah, Holly, Heather

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a excellent job with this.

In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.

Outstanding Blog!

to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's triggered by the fire communicated in the article I read. And after this post "Home-Made Spray Paint". I was moved enough to post a thought :-P I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind.
