In their defense, I have to add that this picture doesn't do them justice :-) They look great on our fridge, and are useful to hold pictures, cards etc.
Basically they are just pictures from magazines and scrapbooking paper (anything you fancy) stuck onto the backs of those little flat glass marbles you get from the florist department. Then, magnets are attached to the back and voila! I have to admit that the eye one is a little creepy, but oh well.
It is simply a flat stone, painted red (with acrylic paint). The letters are pre-cut foam shapes, as is the little caterpillar. I used a glue gun to attach red and green pom poms on top, and finally a pair of boogly eyes.
Very, very easy. And this would be something fun to do with children. Maybe we will be carrying on grandma Putnam's rock painting tradition! Tomorrow (or when I get time) I'll explain the magnets we made.

But, after some thought, I came to the realisation that we do not have to defend our decision to enlarge our family. Children are such a blessing (well, the one that we have is...and I'm sure the others will be, too!) We are extremely excited to be welcoming another son or daughter to our family.
The baby is due on the 25th of February. By this time, Luke will be around 14 months old. I'm sure it will be a challenge to have two tiny ones in the home, but I am ready for it. Or at least, I hope to be ready for it in just under 6 months :-) I have already started to imagine Luke and his sibling playing side by side, and what it will be like in church when they both start to cry at the same time. Oh what fun!

We looked around the Logan Arts Fair. There were many different pieces of work on display (and on sale) Some of them were stunning, and very inspiring!
Trev's classes have started again and he has a busy workload. I am trying hard to be a supportive wife. One of my 'projects' right now is working on creating a more varied and healthy meal plan.
Life is great :-)
