Brianna and the neighbor gal have amazing imaginations… they have an entire mermaid story, and many powers to go along with it!  Nothing better than kids’ using their imagination.  I saw someone pin a mermaid craft on the, so we decided to try it but of course wanted to add our own spin.

We used most the same items:  acrylic paint, peg clothespin, yarn, tacky glue and the tail template provided on their site.  For some reason Brianna thinks “the little mermaid, Ariel,” is not real, but others are, so she wanted to makes hers look magical. We used glitter craft foam, and colorful yarn.  The one thing you need to have, that we didn’t, is a PAINT MARKER/PEN!!! So wish I had one:( BOO!  But Brianna didn’t want to wait for another trip to the store.  Paint markers work best because they to not bleed like markers, and unless you are good with the paint brush, it’s not a big area for painting.. but we made due.

Happy weekend!






Fall in Michigan

Outside Christmas I LOVE fall and not just fall but Halloween!  The colors, apples, candy corn, pumpkins, and ability for kids to use there imaginations to dress up in cool outfits and beg for candy!  Good times.

Today I tried to take pics of the gals in their boo dresses but there was no way to get them to be serious, so I decided to just let the gals play with their Indian Corn, and be themselves.  These are always the best pictures:-)




Down to the smallest detail…

Are you a details person?  I’d say I am.  I like when items I own have feelings and have unique details.  This is why I always find myself going back to Dvergen Artz for my special decoration needs.  Keti creates and ships her special products from Bulgaria.  The shipping is worth the wait. . . I recommend Keti’s shop to anyone who looking to warm up an empty room or searching for that special gift to cheer someone up. ImageImageImage
