Hi friends!

Hi friends!  I haven't had access to my computer for a couple days... I couldn't wait to get this post up today!  I will be sharing children's art ideas on fox 9 tomorrow morning at 8:15!  I have a pinterest board where I've gathered lots of inspiration for this appearance...  http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/little-hands/ 
Are you on instagram yet?  It's another great way to stay connected.  My user name is thevintageumbrella.  I share all sorts of projects that I'm working on there.
Today I'm sharing a masterpiece made by my daughter Isabelle and my nephew Mason.  I bought 2 artist canvases at Michael's.
We used an assortment of stickers and wrote "be happy" on one and "i love you" on another.

I chose a bunch of paints and let the kids paint to their heart's content.  

This morning i pulled the stickers off and traced the letters with a black pen.

I haven't framed them yet... but I don't think they could be any cuter.  Hope you can tune in tomorrow.  If not, I will post my appearance here this weekend.
