First, I have to show you the cutest little kitchen helper ever! Isn't he sweet! Gary loves bringing a chair over to where I'm working to "help". So last night we were having spaghetti & meatballs, Hunter made us each beautiful individual salads, so I started rolls to go with it all. Well, the boys had a "catasrophe" and when I turned back it was just in time to see Gary dump a whole glass measuring cup full of water in. Yes, we went with the frozen-ready-made-garlic bread instead.
And here's my latest project! I've been working on it for a couple of days. Someone had given the boys one of those magentic calendars with dates, and then you put on whatever activity magnet that applies to that day; like "soccer practice" or "school field trip", etc. Needless to say, most of the activities didn't even apply to us, and it was never used properly anyway. Well, I've hung on to it for over a year now -- now that I've found modpodge I know why! I seriously have always wanted a set of these, and we've had so much fun since I've put them up! (Annie had a friend over this evening and I even caught her friend playing with them!)
I just cut 1" squares and rounded their edges, then wrote random words! I customized a few
like "celestial kingdom" and our names. It was really fun!
I did 2 coats of MP, and had planned on doing a 3rd, but I was so excited
to put them up that I just couldn't wait any longer!
Come on over and play!
Hunter put this up! So cute!


  1. Look, I found your blog. :) I don't really know what mod podge is, but those look like a lot of fun. I kind of want to make some. And I think being the bread goddess that you are, you could have rescued the watery dough. I'm shocked that you even had ready-made bread around!
