Weekend Projects!

It is almost ridiculous how much I actually accomplished this weekend. If I could be this productive all the time, I could take over the world.

We all knew that my button obsession would take over everything, right? I needed some Valentine's Day decorations and I thought that these sweet little button flowers would be the perfect touch.

I know I already posted this, but here it is again. I am just so happy with how it turned out. Are you curious as to what we will be doing? I'll give you a few clues: Cookies. Crayon Hearts.

Oy vey. The Earth. A paper mache Earth no less. I have never, ever in my life done paper mache. And I never will again. I do not shy away from messes. I am not normally intimidated by drips, drops and drama, but I hate paper mache. Ugh. Breuklyn had no complaints though. And yes, ahem, she is painting in her pajamas. Classy, I know.

Don't you just love the huge indentations in the top? Glorious. I didn't hover though. I wasn't a helicopter mom. I let her squish it in, I let her paint and paint and paint and paint. And then I let her repaint it again. It should be dry by 2014... or by tomorrow morning when it is due for the Space Fair.

And while she painted... I baked. You wouldn't have suspected anything less, would you?

Oh the memories that just came rushing back...school projects equals mom's worst nightmare. Like you, I didn't hover, but hated it none the less. Have to admit it looks great!

Your Valentine's projects are delightful. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!!!
