I picked up this great quote during one of my recent visits to Pinterest. It is an outlook that I am fervently trying to cultivate.
For example - gaze upon this amazing photo of my 13-year old son. He has been endlessly fascinated by the styrofoam heads at Hobby Lobby forever. While some might find his craft store antics to be an ordeal, I embraced the spirit of adventure and snapped his pic! BTW - he reminded me several times that he will be that height very soon. . .
Lori Barnett posted a card with rays today that inspired me to try the technique. She has a much fancier cutting board than me and I have less patience so taping off sections with Frog Tape (found in the painting section of your hardware store) and quickly painting worked for me.
My foolproof method for protecting my mat wasn't so foolproof - I still managed to get paint on it. Doodled, cut out and glued a flower and called it a day. I really gravitate toward clean graphic lines - love this look.
