Dream On, Dream On… Insert a tired face drinking coffee, singing this.  The other day I took a walk in my neighborhood ,remember the pictures I shared?  I have this odd desire to “collect” things that cross my path. Maybe it’s a little obsession or it could be that I am a little bit of a hoarder. I am sure people who know me reading this will laugh at that sentence. The only good thing is I get rid of these things as soon as I get them, so technically I am NOT a hoarder, haha! We will be making a dream catcher mobile today and trust me you will fall in love just like I did. Speaking of fall I can’t wait to start spraying these scents all over my house!

Wouldn’t this dream catcher look splendid on top of a baby’s crib?! It is sorta abstract v/s modern v/s county v/s whimsical.

 Make sure when you open your bottle of paint to remove the protective paper on top! Or you could do like me and keep squirting and NOTHING ever happen. You would think as long as I been using these paints I would remember about this little piece of paper, right!

how to use clay

 I used Crayola air dry clay to form little balls. Make sure to stick a tooth pick through them before they dry.  Once they are dry paint them whatever color you want.
