Happy Wednesday

I have been so busy all week I haven't had a chance to even think about stamping. I did though, want to share with you a little something the kids and I made a few days ago. Because our weather has been so bad we have been confined to our house for more days than I would like to think about. We spend a lot of days in the basement playroom. We don't have any real furniture in there, just toys and a tv, and the kids have been complaining of no place to sit. So... we decided to create some furniture for them. Here is our first piece. We decided to start with something simple...a chair. Ok, so it wasn't oh so simple but we finished it. We covered a bunch of boxes with construction paper and stickers and then covered the entire thing with packaging tape. I filled the seat box with paper so it wouldn't collapse when you sat on it. I think it turned out pretty cute. You can't have a chair without a foot rest so we made one of those too. The kids love it and actually use it so it was worth the entire roll of packaging tape it took to cover it. Not sure if we will be making any additions to our playroom furniture collection, but it was still fun coming up with this one.
