Des was here last month.
She and my little guy were sitting on the couch
going through her Crafty Pinterest Pins.
That's what hip aunts and nephews do.
They were just chatting and looking
at stuff like this...

A week later, after a hard Sunday morning...
(It's so interesting, that every other day of the week,
my son is up at the crack of dawn, but
on Sundays before church, he just cannot get out of bed.
It makes for a miserable morning.)
he tells me we should make the yellow sign.
What are we talking about?
Aunt Desi's sign
from her computer.
|(Sorry, I can't find the original source pin.)|
I roll with it.
I've been wanting to try something like this
with my Silhouette Cameo and
anything to help his attitude!
So the next week,
I surprise him after school
with the supplies.
Found the canvas at Michael's.
They were 1/2 off.
I got 2 canvases for $5!
They are pretty big.
I've never done anything like this,
we'll see how it goes.
I had the letters cut out
of vinyl and ready.
He had to first rub the letters
in the right place.
And then pick
his paint color.
This is where I'm thinking --
the sign looks good, are we
going to ruin it?
Once he painted the sides,
it was pretty dry, so
he started peeling the letters off.
He's super happy with it.
Hung it in his room.
We talk about it every few days,
and honestly it has helped.
I think it's because
it was his idea.
I've got a great snack for him.
Oreo's filled with toothpaste.
Happy April Fool's Day!
