It’s hard to make out what they’re saying, but perhaps their conversation revolves around the fact it takes 2,247 steps to walk home from the local 7-11, where Hubby took them after school today to get ‘Slurpies’.
When they rushed to tell me they had counted their steps on the walk home, I instinctively said ‘how boring’. The disapproving look on their faces as they responded ‘No, it was a lot of fun”, told me I had failed to appreciate the experience. Turns out Hubby had asked the kiddies to guess how many steps it would take to get home and with each of them being competitive in their own way, the counting game helped make a long walk seem a little shorter.
They worry not about what they will eat or wear, they just KNOW. Expect that we – as their parents – will provide. Isn’t that the same way we should feel about our Heavenly Father’s promises? Oh if only I had a trace of their faith…
- Stamp subject onto napkin or tissue paper
- Cut it out
- Apply a thin coat of glue or ModPodge onto egg with brush
- Stick cut out napkin onto the egg
- To smooth edges, gently rub the napkin cut out with the handle of the brush
Because the clear art stamps are flexible, I was also able to do some without stamping the napkin first but I found that the napkin method gave me a cleaner image.
I also stamped some eggs with our names on them to use as place settings but got so carried away photographing this little guy that I forgot to include them in the shoot.
I’m smitten with the Queen Bee stamp set and while looking for a link for them realized that this particular set – and all the other clear art stamps – are currently on sale over at Crafty Secrets. Isn’t that great?
I am excited to tell you that I will be having a Crafty Secrets giveaway coming very soon..:)
For now, I leave you with a quote from honey’s biggest fan…
