Every week my daughter comes home beaming with some new and exciting thing she made in school. Constantly I am amazed at what she walks into the house with! I don’t know what ever happened to construction paper and crayons but these teachers are getting very savvy! I like it!
Since they are constantly blowing me away with their great projects I decided to create a weekly feature where I show off some my daughters art projects that make it to our refrigerator!
I hope you enjoy and that this will inspire you to get crafting on your own with your little ones!
So without further ado…
(If I had theme music this is when it would start to roll.. come to think of it, I need to get me some of that!)
I present to you the very first ever, and of all time Fridge Art Friday:
Flowers in a vase with cupcake wrappers and sunflower seeds
I absolutely loved when H gave me this for mother’s day! For the Vase they used real wallpaper which makes a great texture and allows it to really pop! The Heart shaped flower is a nice touch! I also love how the cupcake wrappers give the craft a 3D feel! The sunflower seeds are such a nice touch as well.
H said she really loved creating this, and I think it is a really cute and simple way to get the kids minds moving creatively
Feel Free to link up and share your favorite pieces of Fridge Art in the comments section and be sure to check back every week for a new Fridge Art Friday!
A few years ago I went on vacation to the Dominican Republic with the boys. It was one of those trips that dreams are made of: Just the guys, beautiful beach, beautiful water, great food… a once in a lifetime experience. I took a million pictures while I was there and couldn’t wait to get home and get them up onto facebook. Now imagine this: there I sat at the computer, transferring all the photos onto my computer, and as I brought up the first image the blood immediately began to rush to my head. Blurry! Over Exposed!! TOO DARK!!!I think I might have had about 15 photos that could be saved. All hopes of reliving every experience with the guys gone. (ok it wasn’t that dramatic but still).
So when we started planning our WDW Resort trip last fall I knew this time was going to be different, I would conquer my fear of bad trip photos (and I did) and then share with all of you wonderful Northern Mousette readers some tips on taking great photos for yourself.
So in the spirit of great pictures here are my top 7 begginer tips on taking great photos at disney:

When my 5 year old performed in her Ballet recital last week I knew she would be thrilled to see our extended family there to see the show. We always get her flowers to show her how much we love her and how well she did. This year the best part wasn’t the look on her face as she got bouquet upon bouquet of roses and daisies. I bent down and before I gave them to her told her how proud I was to be her mom and how much I loved her. That smile was bigger than any I have got via flowers.
