For art class a few weeks ago, I had the students take impressions (using alginate donated by Dr. Pearson's office) of their own hands. We poured maleable plaster into the alginate casts creating a plaster hand of each student. I thought it would be fun to paint the hands creepy looking for Halloween. So we used acrylic paints, and painted spooky hands. I think my students really loved the project.
Maybe I'll take an impression of baby #3's hand when he is born. Then I will have a tiny mold of his perfect little hand.
This is my latest project. Baby #3 needed a dresser. So I've been looking for one for a few weeks. Nothing was the right color or price. I'm getting picky, and only want furniture that is solid wood, why buy something that is not going to last? Finally, I found a dresser on Craig'slist. A solid wood dresser made by Bassett for $130. Granted it was pretty old style and a ugly green color, but I sanded and painted it. Now it matches our existing bed perfectly. I couldn't be happier. I have already loaded 6 months worth of baby clothes into it
I think I might be nesting or something because I just have an itch to get things together around the house.
Can't wait to see you next week Mom and Dad; canning and camping should be fantastic! Love you and miss you.
