Now with St. Patrick's day over, we're getting ready for Easter! My kiddos are so caught up in every holiday's magic & wonderment. We have bunny pictures hanging up in unexpected places & easter egg pictures hanging from the chandelier & my kitchen cabinets. I'm trying to think of some fun springtime crafts that I can do with the kids. It would be fun to make some paper chains & a bunting....and of course we'll be decorating eggs when it gets closer to the holiday. I have some traditional Ukranian psyanky dyes & wax... perhaps the kids are old enough this year! We'll see!

isewcute is at it again & it's national craft month, so let's glitter another ikea table & make it a work of art!
Today it was so incredibly warm & sunshiney, and my ikea 'lack sofa table' which I've been using as my sewing table sure could've used some glitter-goodness, so I grabbed my resin, paint, masking tape & silver glitter & got busy!
This is the look I was going for! I can't wait to take off the painter's tape, & finish the legs & get it back into my craft room, but alas...resin takes it's sweet time to set up.
So if you'd like to glitter your own table surface, you can do it!
I started out with this...not too pretty after 10 plus years I know it was very chipped along the edges & beat up.
While the paint was tacky, I tossed on the first layer of glitter.
Someone asked me how much glitter it takes & it really doesn't take much at all...(I used approximately 1-3 Tablespoons worth on this project). It's whatever you want really, because painting the surface first preps it & it all blends together.
I love how this sparkles!

Having fun this morning playing with some GI Joe dolls... just because.
I saw a Blue Man Group performance years ago & it was one of the most incredible theatrical experiences ever. If you have the chance to see them... just do it! There's nothing else that can compare. I also have one of their albums... the music is fantastic! It's great to listen to while drawing. :)

yuki from baby bunny to all grown up with bowl 5 month difference photos by isewcute, a photo by isewcute on Flickr.
I recently had another fun photoshoot with Yuki, our little darling hotot bunny & even though she is still relatively small, she has grown quite a bit! Now she doesn't have to stand on her tippy toes to reach into the bowl... same bowl in both photos.
