postheadericon More Fun with Paints


 I wanted to use paints again today.  We thought and thought and decided to repaint some garden decorations.  They had faded and none of the paint that had been on them years ago was still there.  We couldn't even know what colors had been there.

postheadericon Craft Week for Me

 I am staying with Grandma this week because I am out of school for the summer but both of my parents are still teaching.  I was looking through a craft book, because I have looked forward to this week so we could do crafts.  I saw a "Treasure Chest" in the book made from two paper bowls.  Just what I need for private things.
The chest has a hinge, now.
 I used a twist tie for the hinges in the back.  Then I wanted to paint the chest so I asked Grandma if she had any paints.  She laughed.  We went to a closet I didn't know had craft things.  Here is her Acrylic Paint set.

"Private" was the first thing I painted on the chest.

 It was easy to learn how to paint because grandma had water bucket, palette, lots of brushes and lots of colors.  I wanted to try them all so I decided on a rainbow theme.
I had to try lots of colors.
 I better put my NAME on the chest.  I didn't have a lot of room left so I used some alphabet stickers Grandma had in a drawer.
Thank goodness she had all of the letters of my name
 When it was all dry I put a couple of treasures in it and took the chest home.

Hi crafters and crafter-kids,

My name is Gabby and, actually, I am a crafter. I say “actually” a lot. I am seven years old until the end of June. I am almost 7 and a half right now.

My Grandma has tons of paper-crafting supplies and she lets me explore. Daddy used to make scrapbook pages, too, but now he is awfully busy coaching.

Grandma lets me use really sharp “detail scissors” and all kinds of other cool things she has in her craft room. I learned a lot from her that I will be passing on to you as a Creative Team Member for Wuvie’s Whimsies using her Kelly’s Kids.

I can’t wait to show you what I have been doing and sharing tips with you.

Happy Crafting,

Actually-Gabby
