Wall Plaque

I have been wanting to do crafts again for quite a while. Since I am now doing school online, I have a bit more time.
I found this plaque at the DI for $2.00 The saying on it made NO sense at all. So I started peeling off all those vinyl letters. What a pain!!
 Finally, they are all off.
 I sanded it down so that it was smooth where the vinyl lettering was. I wanted to keep the pink underneath, so I only sanded in the middle.
 I then gave it a coat of black semi gloss spray paint.
 After it dried most of the way, I sanded so that the pink showed through on the edges.
 I then added the new vinyl lettering that I had bought on clearance, um, about 5 years ago. Crazy!!
So all in all this cost me $2.00 and my time. Not bad for a baby gift for my nieces daughter.

Forever and a Day......

It seems like it has been forever and a day since I blogged last. I love doing it, but I find that I don't have the time or the program skills to make it what I really like.

 Kamdan turned 8! He had a sock monkey birthday party.  I had a lot of fun doing the decorations for this party.

Blow out the candle!!!
Happy Birthday Kamdan!!

Kamdan also had the opportunity to be baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

My twiners!!

Khydan, Kezedan and Grandpa Cheney


Khydan turned 10. 10!!!!! Since when do I have a 10 yr old??? We did a really fun Angry Birds birthday party for him. It was so much fun! He is in the 4th grade. He also graduated to Webelos in scouts. He is still taking piano and guitar lessons. He will start tap lessons as soon as the studio that we go to adds it to their program. (next month we hope.)
Happy Birthday Khydan!
