DIY Birthday Plate. Before3pm.com

Let me tell you a story.

My middle son absolutely LOVES arts and crafts.   Now, painting is definitely not my favorite activity because it is always such a mess, but he begged me to let him paint, and I gave in.

I set him up with his paint set, newspaper on the table, a cup for rinsing out his paintbrush, etc..

When he finished his artwork, he put everything away, including the cup of dirty water in the sink.

While the dishes were piled in the sink, the paint residue from that water cup managed to get on some of my plates, and to this day, two of my plates STILL have paint spots on them!

Why do I tell you this story?  Because when I actually TRY to get paint to stay on plates, it has never worked!!!!

That is, until now! Read More →

Title for Magic Books

I can’t tell you how different our three boys are!   Our middle son is our artist.  His day is not complete unless he has made multiple drawings.  I find his artwork everywhere, including “books” he likes to make where he staples a whole bunch of paper together.   Read More →
