Paint & Leaves





When my children were young we loved to make crafty things. Some of my favorites things were made with paint & their hand & finger prints. I have turkeys, Christmas trees and wreaths, bunnies & flowers....but I don't have a tree!

Fall Fingerprint Tree

Look at this splendid tree and all the beautiful leaves!!

Handprint ~ Arm print ~ and Fingerprints ~ all rolled into one!!
And it even has a squirrel! I love squirrels!

I don't think I could talk any of my children into making one of these using their body parts now...but I do have a whole new set of hands and arms and fingers to create with! I wonder how soon Elijah, Charlotte and Penelope will be ready for this.

Oh Marie, I love the images you've shared. Thank you. The tree picture is a cute idea. If you do that with E, C & P, make sure to take pictures while you're doing it..I'm sure that will be a hoot! xoxo
I wish you could come to the sale. I wonder how much we'll buy from each other!

I love it! I am going to have to remember this one for when Jaygen is a little older. Grandma can't wait to create with him! :)

We were both on the same brain wave this morning...I'm posting about crafting too...showing my new crayons, yes in deed! I love squirrels too, I'll have to show you a picture of the one on the top of my fridge, she smiles at me daily. I love the tree linked to the arm...its a dandy tree, now all it needs is a treehouse!

I love this post. The tree is so sweet. I still have all of my chldren's artwork. Do you think my 14 year old daughter will get mad at me if I go glob some paint on her hand? lol. Thank you for your sweet comment.
Hugs,
Kathy
