Uplifted stool

I finally was able to get some crafting done!!We've had this stool forever that my MIL picked up at Salvation Army for me to re-do. Now that Hannah is getting closer to being potty trained and will need a way to wash her hands, I figured now was the time to get on it. It was very simple no sanding involved, gotta love primer.

I just primed with spray paint primer.

Then added 2 or 3 coats of yellow spray paint until it looked good.

I then cut some scrapbook paper to fit the step area and using Mod Podge attached the paper to the steps. Once this was dry I put on another coat of Mod Podge to help seal it. Once this was dry I spray painted with a clear sealer to help keep water out and voila! A super cute stool.

Hannah loves it so much, today she even snuck into the bathroom to play in the sink.

new name - Real Crafty Mama is now Everyday for Them

Well I finally did it. Ever since I started my Blog I haven't been so thrilled with the name. It wasn't even close to my first choice but I could never figure out what to call it until a few minutes ago. This new name will lend itself more to general blogging, not just about crafts. I still plan on blogging about the same stuff but don't want to feel limited by a name. So hopefully everyone will still follow along. Until next time, peace.

He's here!

Hi Everybody,

I know it's been forever since I've last blogged but it has been for a good reason. My newest son Daniel Joseph is here! He arrived on April 27 and was six weeks early. He weighed 4 lbs 9 oz. and was 17 inches long. He had no complications other than he was six weeks early and little. He stayed 9 days in the NICU just to get his weight up and fight off some Jaundice.

He's two months old now and time is flying by. But as you can see I don't have much time for blogging or crafting for that matter. I do really want to get back to doing somethings but right now it's just too much. Hopefully in the fall I can start getting back to my hobbies. But in the meantime I'm enjoying being a mother to my three babies even though one of them is 12 now!

Here are some pictures of the little guy. He has gained weight like crazy since he's been home and is doing great.
