Craftin with Mom

Joel has been taking a few night classes to expand his education and employment skill set. He has decided to take a few additional accounting classes so that he can sit for his CPA exam later this year. He is still working full time, which means that his classes are taken at night. Therefore, a few nights a week are quite boring for me, but allow me to get some projects completed.

Last night my mom came by to cut out some letters on the Circuit machine for a school poster, and I showed her a cute magnet board project that I wanted to make. She liked it, and decided to stay and make one with me. I think that they turned out super cute, and they were so easy and cheap to make. Thanks to my friend Jamie, the vinyl letters turned out great.

We decided to make black and white magnets out of scrapbook paper and flattened clear marbles. They turned out so great.

So here is what the finished project looked like. This board is fun because you can rotate pictures on it, or anything else you want to display.

It was nice to spend some time with my mom and end up with a completed craft at the end of the night.
