Geometric Wood Sliced Ornaments
One thing I can't help myself (much to my husbands chagrin ; ) ) is making Christmas ornaments every year. He always says we have enough, but these past few years it has become a tradition that I just can't break. I feel that because Christmas ornaments are small, it makes it an easy Christmas craft and to me the tree is the most important Christmas decoration. So when I was invited by Expression Vinyl to be part of their Ornament Challenge, I was so excited to get my ornament craft on.

I had this idea of doing a simple scandinavian type of ornament and came across some gold himmeli and suddenly thought how fun would those be on an ornament but with animals as well!! So my geometric ornaments took life.

On the back of them, I added words to Christmas songs. Seriously, I love how these turned out. The white and gold make the perfect accent on the green branches of the tree.

Silhouette Cut File:

*sorry, I did take pictures, but I think they got deleted. 
Measure your wood width and height of your wood slice pieces first. Then change the silhouette files accordingly. 
For the Geometric Animals
Cut your shapes out. Carefully peel the outer layer off your shape. Place it on your ornament and use as a stencil to paint the white background.

After the paint has dried, carefully (using transfer tape) place the geometric shape right on top of the white silhouette shape you just painted. 

For the Christmas Lyrics
Paint the other side of the ornament, completely white and let dry. Then add the lyrics on top. 

Ok, now time to check out all the other fantastic ornaments in the challenge. Go HERE to vote.

Attitude of Gratitude + Free Printable

I'm a big advocate for gratitude. Maybe it is because of how much happier I am when I'm conciously making gratitude a part of my daily life, or maybe it is because I'm married to a man who says thank you (genuinely I might add) more than anyone I've ever met. Either way I'm a huge fan. If you were to follow my personal blog, Well Rounded (our last name is Roundy), you'd see that this is a true story!

Marbleize ANYTHING with Spray Paint || Tutorial

ooooh!! use spray paint to marbleize anything!!
When it comes to teaching my little ones, reading and english comes natural. However, since my oldest has gotten older, I've been trying to introduce more sciency things into our daily adventures and recently I've come to love the simplicity of teaching little ones science (ex, gravity - they fall and bam! lesson taught ; ). And let's be honest for a minute, simple science is about all I can even comprehend!!
