Family Process Art

We do process art pretty often around here.  With two toddlers, process art feels like the perfect introduction to art and materials.  My girls are used to creating freely with little or no expectations besides being safe and not eating the materials.  It was so nice to bring my husband into the mix this time!

DIY Table to Desk Before and After

DIY Table to Desk Before and After

  We had DIY Day 5 this past Sunday.  While Ted and Ev put up the walls of the playhouse in the backyard, I painted this mid-century table that we transformed into a desk the night before.  It was all Ev’s idea.  He’s a genius. I love that guy. I really love it!  And Ev’s(…)
