I decided to make some new projects out of stuff I already have. I use to paint a lot and I had some little wood houses left over and so I collaged some family pictures and pretty paper on them and used them up.
Then I made a large album out of collaged materials.

In the latest issue of Somerset Life there were the cutest pouches made out of toilet paper rolls. You just press down on the cardboard roll and then glue one end closed. In the magazine they had used a wax technique on them. I thought these pouches would be cute for Mother's Day gifts. The older kids painted the rolls with acrylic paints, made tags, and attached elastic string to hang them up. They also embellished them with lace and little flowers. My little guys drew self portraits on paper and glued them on the rolls. I attached light weight wire to hang them up. Sooooo... easy!
