This poor boy needs a brother.  He spends most of his time with a tiara on his head or a sparkly pink glove on his hand.

There is a perk...

to falling out of a parked car and breaking your arm...being totally spoiled with presents.

A large box came to our home with Scarletts name on it.  She opened the box and found a card from her Great Grandparents in Idaho. Chris and Scarlett are planning a trip this summer together to visit these Grandparents and I do not know who is more excited, Scarlett or Grandma and Grandpa.

Needless to say the box was filled with silly gifts and toys, most of the gifts pointedly expressed how excited they were to show her around their home town.  Books about Idaho, stuffed animals mimicking a famous statue in Idaho, a travel magazine listing all of the fun things to do in Idaho.

It was beyond sweet and immediately made me a little jealous that I would not be going to Idaho.  I have a feeling that this trip will become a memory of a lifetime.

This box also included an extremely annoying dancing bunny that continuously sings a song about jelly beans to the tune of the macarana. It didn't last more than a day before the batteries went dead from overuse. Thankfully saving me the trouble of finding it a permanent hiding spot in the trash can.

Wire word sculpture...

 photo 2d14827f-9ef9-4b71-874c-dd8bf8932612_zps6eb6834a.jpg

After seeing this and this I knew just what I wanted to fill the empty space on my kids bedroom wall.  I was torn because there is so little color in the room already, and between the book page bunting and the children's book pinwheels the room was already feeling extremely DIY.  But I decided I loved these wire words so much, I went for it and I am so happy with how it turned out. 

What you need:
Floral or jewelry wire (I used 12 gauge silver)
Printed font to use as a template
Wire cutters

How to make your word sculpture:

Lay out your printed script on a flat surface.  Start sculpting your wire using the paper as your template.  When you come to the end of the word, clip the excess wire with wire cutters or scissors.  Hang and enjoy! Easy and cheap DIY.
