{wanting to paint wallpaper}

Photobucket

Painting has been one of our top activities these last few days and it got me thinking that I would love to buy a paintable wallpaper and let the girls go crazy and create something that looks like....

wallpaper their closets with the new creation. Don't you think that would be such a fun and colorful way to display their work?

Anyway how is your week shaping up? I myself seem to be just shy from being on top of things. Ever feel like you are flying by the seat of your pants?

P.S. - Isn't that painted wallpaper gorgeous? Erica blogged about it today and linked to the source over here.

I think that is a brilliant idea. My kids color and/or paint all the time.

My little one has been painting the past couple days too, wallpaper would be too fun! Sadly he probably wouldn't differentiate btwn wallpaper and the wall...

I'm feeling really behind on everything - I guess because I am! I'm blog reading til 11 and then back to straightening things up!

Great idea. I love water color colors anyway.

Yes, so behind and, at the same time, so unmotivated.
