Apparently the Powers that Be heard all my complaining about snow and cold and took pity on me because March has been out-of-this-world beautiful! We’ve slept with the windows open a few nights, have had several late night campfires, and have even brought out the sunscreen! And technically it is still winter. Winter! Until tomorrow of course. But still. Winter here normally lasts well into April.
This little project was all M’s idea, and actually took place a couple of weeks ago before all the nice weather, right when we were starting to get a bad case of cabin fever.
But that was really hard work! We obviously didn’t have the paint watered down enough. I thought we were both going to hyperventilate by the time one flower was done. :) So M decided to paint the rest with a brush.
We made the centers of the flowers pop out a little bit by adding them on top of two layers of mounting foam:
But that just was not enough spring inside the house. That evening M made big plans to decorate the closet doors (this closet is in a little nook off of our living room) with a giant springtime collage. At the time it was covered with coffee filter snowflakes – which were getting pretty old and boring – blah!
The plans were all his, and he did all the cutting and taping. I simply drew a few shapes for him to cut, all according to what he wanted.
There are even a couple of butterflies. :)
I love looking over at our closet doors. :) Such a happy space made by a happy boy!
Have a beautiful spring!
