Naptime Creations with Emma

So Friday I spent both nap times of Little T working on a Easter door decoration.  The first nap of the day, I worked on the background layer of paint, which I picked a happy yellow color, and then making polka dots using a cup dipped in paint to make the outline then filled it in with a brush.  That afternoon, I was able to write my families name over the dots, add a bow and then hang it finally on my door.  I love how it turned out! It makes me so happy because I love yellow and I love Easter Eggs.  So thankful to my friend Cassidy's husband who cut the egg out of light weight wood for us.  This might be one of my favorite decorations I have made lately.  It just makes me smile:)  I looks really good on my black front door. (the picture above is not on my front door)

Emma saw my Egg and wanted to paint a bunny, so when T took his afternoon nap, I helped her create a bunny painting.  I traced a bunny onto a canvas I had in the art closet and let her go to town painting her bunny.  She talked and laughed while we painted together.  She was so happy and so was mommy!  I love crafting with my sweet girl!  After her great paint job was dry I re outlined the bunny with a black paint pen and called it a wonderful addition to our Easter decor.  So proud of her and her little bunny!

Friday was a great Nap time crafting day and loved that Emma joined in on my fun.  Taylor got some great sleep Friday and our house became more festive and beautiful!
