Adopt-an-owl

Hi everyone! Just want to share our latest mother-daughter project.. adopt-an-owl 🙂 Had so much fun putting these together for her school gala.

This project is very easy to make, and all you need is a thin canvas, acrylic paint and lots and lots of patterned paper. First, get them to paint the background. Then cut different sizes of rectangles and house shapes. Can you guess which city’s skyline we are making? 🙂View full post »

All you need is: Those are pumpkin spice potpourri that I found at Target a few months ago, and it was on sale 🙂 I am so going to miss Target when I’m back in New Zealand!
