Pot holders for Grandparent’s day

You may or may of not have known that September 9th was Grandparent’s day. I did not know about it until the day before when I saw it on one of the blogs I read!

The girls have awesome grandparent’s so I knew that even though it was last minute, we still needed to do something to show how much we appreciate them. :)

I saw this idea on Pinterest. I would love to link to the person who came up with this idea, but there is no blog linked to the picture. If this is your idea, please let me know so that I can give credit where it is due!

Anyway, here is what we made..
grandparents gift pot holders

Sorry about the cell phone picture!

All I did was get a couple of pot holders from Dollar Tree. I already had the white paint. I painted the girls’ hands white and pressed them down once on each pot holder. After they dried, I added the year, “Helping hands” and their initials by their handprints. Easy peasy! And the Grandma’s loved them. :)

Did you make anything for Grandparent’s day? Or did you not know about it?

A new season of life..

August 10th started a new season of life for me. Gone are the days of me being at home with my girls all day. Now I am one of the Moms the parent pick up line every morning and afternoon. I go to parent meetings and volunteer at the girls’ school. At first I was sad that I would have to give up so much time with my “babies”, but now I am loving it. I get a little bit of time to myself each day (forgot that existed!!) and everything that comes with having kids in school is fun for me!

Here is a picture from the girls’ first day of school:

And here is what we made for their teachers on the first day:

The girls both LOVE their teachers and school. They are making friends.. Micheal and I are so proud of them. :) One of my favorite parts of the day is hearing about what they did at school and seeing what pretty picture/projects they brought home that day!

Well, that’s all from me today. I will be back soon with a craft that the girls and I did recently. :)

Thank for stopping by!!

You guys.. I am here!!

It’s been a long (almost) 2 months without my blog!! My blog “went away” for a little bit. My domain name was up after a year. Before I could renew it, someone bought it out from under me. I found out that it was WAY too much trouble to try and get it back! One of the steps involved using a fax machine and that is not happening, haha! SO, for now, I am back to using the good ‘ol blogspot name. It’s free, and I’m fine with it.

Just wanted to update you and let you know that I am back (and so excited)!! :)

I will have an actual post soon!
