Well, that was short lived, lol. I am trying to blog more, but one needs to have a little more of the good stuff to share than bad stuff nobody wants to hear about (sick kids, work projects, etc.)
I have all the great workings of a new project, but nothing to show you as of yet. So I will ask a couple of questions. Question 1 - I am thinking about painting the center of these Dollar Tree plastic trays with chalkboard paint for Christmas gifts. Have you seen a tutorial or have any advice as to how to make the rim that will remain "silver" look oxidized?
Question 2 - How do you get your kids to open up about what they did at school? I have tried specific questions (who did you play with, what did you play), broad, offbeat questions (what made you laugh today?), and the Rose-Rosebud-Thorn thing-y that encourages kids to share something good that happened to them, something they learned or are trying to figure out, and something they didn't like from the day. I even held a fun size bag of M&Ms hostage, and made Hank tell me different things that happened that day in order to get the corresponding number of M&Ms. All of these tactics work for awhile, and then one day he will tell me that he doesn't want to do that any more. Please let me know any tips that have worked at your house.
Hoping I have something blogworthy to share soon!
