{How to} A.R.C.H.I.E wall art.

Here is how I made the ARCHIE wall art.

I used Paper Mache letters from Masters

Paint the back, sides and the edges of the front.

I use scrap book paper. - Tip if you pick them from the same 'design line' all the colours will match.

Gather all your tools.

Trace around your letter, remember to turn you paper and letter upside down.

 Cut out (I like to cut a few mm in from the line so that some of the paint shows on the edge)
 Put glue on both the letter and paper. Stick together. Repeat for each letter.

The Wee Man is now 4 months old!. . .

I can't believe it!!

What a crazy 4 months it has been, that I wouldn't change for anything, bar maybe a day here or there, Why?

1. I have had moments when I wish that it was still just me. {Mean I know, only for the ease of it really, ie when it is late in the evening all I want is chocolate and I can't just jump in the car and go get some. (did I mention my husband works away?)}

2. Oh and the days that I wish I could sleep ALL day!

3. and feeding myself . . . is it to much to ask for a HOT cup of tea or dinner on time!

I have adjusted now to all of this ^ and he is only going to be little for such a small amount of time so I am treasuring it. He is the best baby that I could have asked for. {Does this mean I am in for it next time?} He has the nicest nature, is a cruiser and always has a smile!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from the last 4 months.
