Week 8:  Seeing the Light

Week 8: Seeing the Light

Well I can’t take any credit for this week’s creative project, which was  modge-podging (is that a word???) light switch and outlet plates… it was pretty much all Ashley’s baby.  She came up with the  idea AND did all the work.

It was a really fun and quick thing to do (or in the case of Tom and I, watch being done!)  To do the project, Ashley cut out various pieces of scrapbook paper that she liked and glued them onto the plates with Modge Podge and then went over with a top coat of Modge Podge in matte finish.

She did 4 different ones (from left to right): light switch plates for her room, our craft area in the basement, and Tom’s office; and then also an outlet plate for her room:


Aren’t they great?! And like I said, super quick to do!   We’ll certainly be able to see the light switches now!

Have a light-filled week!  :-)

This week for our creative project we did yet another Valentine’s craft.  Like I said last week, we really HEART Valentine’s Day.  (Although, I think we’ll be good on Valentine’s crafts after this.) We’ve really been trying to use supplies and things that we already have on hand and discovered we had a round wreathContinue Reading

Week 5: We Heart Valentine’s Decorations!

Hi everybody, hope everyone enjoyed last Sunday’s Super Bowl.  We aren’t huge football fans but always enjoy the Super Bowl…mostly the commercials, of course!!!   We rooted for the Ravens since we live in VA outside of Washington DC  and Baltimore is only about an hour away (and hey, purple is our favorite color)! Like lastContinue Reading
