So the time had come for him to leave this past Sunday. (Yes it's Tues right now. I'm always behind.) It's a four hour drive up there, and he had to report early Monday morning. So after he finished packing up all of his stuff, we decided to go out to eat with him at IHOP before he left.

Since we were already out in town, I decided that it would be cool to stop at the Dollar Tree to try out a craft project that I found on The How-To Gal. I stumbled across her blog while stuck in blog-zone. That's what I call the time when you check out a friend's blog, that has a link to another blog, and another, and another. 'Til you have so many blogs open that you can't keep them straight anymore....lol.
Anywho.....I found some of the exact same supplies, but had to improvise with a couple. I found most of them at my local Dollar Tree. And the others, I found at WalMart. The only things I bought that weren't $1 each were the spray paint and the E-600 glue. (I don't do enough "projects" to have these already lying around.)
bead necklaces, decorative bird, small easel stands, mirror,
wooden plaque, E-600, and Ivy Green spray paint.
at this point, I started to feel like I had more paint on me
than on the intended subjects
Before I go, I forgot to mention Brianna's project as well. While at WalMart, she mentioned that she wanted something to paint too. We found an unfinished photo cube. She picked the colors, where she wanted them, and the design. And off she went.
(Sorry for the insane amount of pictures. I can't help myself when I get on a roll...lol. Remember the thousands of pictures? Yea!..lol)
