Fathers Day and Crafting Fun

Today we made cards for Daddy, Grandpa and Grumpy (Another Grandpa. :p) My little miss had a lot of fun making these cards and they turned out really well. My little miss loves rocks and no matter where we go she always brings back at least one. so I thought it would be fun to let her paint her rocks as well. She also painted some pretty pictures. It was a fun little craft day with her.

 I forgot to take pictures of all 3 of the cards. I tried to make each one unique. But here is the one card to her Grumpy.
Happy Fathers Day to all the daddy's out there. :)

Better Late Than Never

So we had the chance to move into our rooms in the basement last November. But there were a few little minor things that needed to be done still. Our closet doors needed to be painted and put doorknobs on them. Back in...I think February, I asked my parents to bring up my long lost bookshelf that I found hiding in their barn. I was a bit dirty and had a few cracks. But nothing I couldn't fix. I have been working on it for awhile. recently our little girl was transitioning to a big girl bed and so I thought this would be a good time to put the last few coats of pain on the book shelf and finally get it in her room. While I had the paint out I decided to finish her closet doors to. I think I have before pictures but I don't have a clue where they could be. But here is the finished look of both the closet and her new bookshelf.
I didn't even realize the I didn't put the doorknobs in the right place Till my father in law pointed it out. Oops! :p
 I am very pleased with this bookshelf it goes great in her room. Now if I could just get her to keep her books looking nice and neat and not strewn all over the floor. :)
