A Family Art Project.....

fam·i·ly
a. A fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents and their children.
b. Two or more people who share goals and values, have long-term commitments to one another, and reside usually in the same dwelling place.
So that's the dictionary's definition of family....but what it means to me is so much more. Family are the people that you can always go back to, the people that love you so much that there's not a thing in the world you can do that would change that. Family, you can count on to support you, hold you up when you feel like you can't do it for yourself.
It's where your roots are....



We started our family art project with packing paper from the Dollar Tree and stamped our hands with brown acrylic paint


Little Liam had to watch from the sidelines (momma's arms) after his tiny hand was stamped


My sweet hubby really got into this project....he's getting used to this kind of thing now :)


And when we were all finished....we stood back a realized we have quite a forest now....
Lots of roots....and that made us happier than we ever knew it would!


PS: If you have a minute...be sure to enter the GIVEAWAY going on now...you could win a necklace made by me!

  12. Very cute idea! I don't know if I could get Hubby to join in the painting, but maybe if I beg...

    I'd also want to do my cat's paw! LOL!

    1. I think you could take the pet paws and make flowered bushes.

  14. Thank you, this is a "doable" idea for me and my family. I wonder if I have time this week. Last week we had a coloring contest so maybe the ball is beginning to roll.

  19. I absolutely love this idea and I want to make my own. My only questions is, is the paper acid free? I'm concerned about it fading of becoming discolored over the years.
