The reason we went to Joann’s craft store 2 times in 2 days.

I have been wanting to do this for a while, so 2 days ago I ran into Joanns because I ran out of yarn. WHile walking down the isles I saw the canvas was 50% off!! I bought 2 and came home, completely ruined them. (But finished 2 slippers wonderfully!!) I was mildly depressed about wasting $12 and my vision not coming into fruition, so Ernie promised to take me back to Joanns today! I ran in, got 2 more and made these! The writing didnt come out just as I had imagined it to, but they are okay. I look forward to painting more on canvas, its so fun!

Sick watch… We still got it, but are slowly feeling better. Today was the first day in 5 that I didnt have a headache that wouldnt go away. Its in Rees’ chest theough which is a bummer. Hopefully we will see everyone this weekend at church! Im starting to miss my friends after being in all week with this.  Anyways, here are the pics.

    Aw! Those are soooo cute and creative! You have such a talent for these sort of unique arts. Micaiah is becoming interested in oil paintings with canvas, I would love to hear what you learn as you do more canvas.

    Sarah, I love those! What kind of paint did you use?

  9. Sarah says:

    Rachel,
    Thanks!! I used regular craft paint in the little bottles. But I am going to try different kinds of oil. I want to work with paint and canvas, its just so hard to jump in when its something new. Its really fun though!
