When I bought this lovely chart, the only planning I expected it to do was Family Home Evening planning--that night once a week where we get together, have a gospel-based lesson, play a game, and eat something unhealthy. No other type of planning was intended. Really. But have you noticed what has been glaringly obvious to each of my children?
An empty PEG! A missing tag! For goodness sake, who will give closing prayer? Our Family Home Evenings may never end! It's caused a bit of a panic.
Moving on. We decoupaged! I actually couldn't even think of the word. I went into the craft store and said, "You know how the Victorians used to cut out roses and stuff and kind of shellac it all to a dresser or something?....." I got a blank stare from the first person I talked to. She handed me off to someone who directed me to a whole decoupage section. Who knew?
Along with the glue (because really that's all it is), I bought a piece of scrapbook paper full of fun designs, some letter stickers, and different colored ribbons. We printed out pictures, cut out stars and flowers and decoupaged away.
Job well done. Now about that closing prayer......What to do? What to do?
