Fish Prints

I helped out in one of our Sunday School classes at church yesterday and we made these awesome fish cards. We took blocks of foam insulation and carved into them with pencils, spoons, paperclips and such. Then we rolled on tempra paint with brayers and pressed them onto notecards. I'm definitely going to have to make a lot more of these. They were so easy, so much fun, and so cheap!

Happy post-Valentine's Day!

These are the valentines I made for my husband and son. The hearts and sailboats are cut from pre-painted map paper and the backgrounds are maps of Isle Royale on one (Bob's) and Drummond Island on the other (Jarod's). Bob and I went to Isle Royale years ago and would love to go back, maybe with the sailboat instead of the kayaks this time and take our son. IMO the most beautiful place on earth, well, at least the most beautiful place that I'VE ever seen! Drummond Island is where we all went last summer with the sailboat and we'll probably make a return trip back there sometime again.

The Hearts are up!

Thought I would post a photo of the Model Magic hearts I made awhile back. I hung them on the wire holder in the entry way by the front door. I think they turned out pretty cute, but next year I might make some more in traditional Valentine's Day white, pink and red. I've always got more ideas than time. :)
