I went to Walmart and I got some burlap. I glued the box really well and I put the fabric on the floor. I rolled it around on all 4 sides to see how much fabric I needed. Then I cut it. I spayed adhesive and I started gluing the fabric. Afterwards, I folded the excess fabric like wrapping a present,and I glued that.
I cut a square of fabric and glued that on the bottom. I thought I might as well do the inside! So I cut another piece of fabric and sprayed the adhesive and glued it on the inside. Then I glued a 12 by 12 inch scrapbook paper and glued it on the inside bottom. I decorated it with black ribbon and glued some stickers with my name on them. Ta da! DONE. One down, 1,000 to go!!
I have been wanting to try to attempt to make my own Sunburst mirror. After a lot of researching, I finally came up with my own idea of how I wanted it. These are the materials you will need:
- A round mirror. I bought mine at the Hobby Lobby in a packet that contained 2 of them!!
- A roung piece of wood. I purchased mine a HL too for 70 cents
- Skewers and drowels
- Glue gun, LOTS of GLUE!!
- Craft sticks
- Spray Paint
Make sure you have a design in mind. I wanted mine to be for our bedroom, so I wanted to be big enough to hang on top of our bed. I layed out a pattern and visualized how I wanted it.
I still have three little kids at home, which I loooooove. But my oldest is 7 and I know that the time is coming when he will be asking for “the truth.” I had been thinking about this because I do not want him to feel that we lied, but I hope that he will understand that we were trying to keep the “magic” of Santa. I found a letter written by a mom which was having the same issue. She did so in an amazing way! I think you can never be too prepared for when the time happens (sad), but oh well, life goes on and the reality is that the grow fast. Se let’s enjoy them! let’s spend more time with them! Let’s help them create memories!

I am passionate about life. I consider it a miracle. This way of thinking started when I found out I was pregnant with my first son. What a miracle in itself life is! Since the moment that little baby is conceived until the day he is born, it is just magnificent. Life has its ups and downs, but the most important thing to remember is that the “downs” are the ones that teach us the most, that is something I have learned. I am passionate about motherhood. Since I held that little baby in my arms for the first time I was hooked! I had never felt that level of happiness ever before. And I wanted to repeat that same process three times! Because I feel that that is exactly what I wanted to do. So I dedicate this blog to all of you moms out there,and to my family and friends.
