Hidden Art Friday


I promised to take a picture of the bunting I was going to make with the kids’ artwork.  Well, six months later, here it is.  We’ve had it made for a while, but I only just now got around to taking a picture of it.  (We used watercolor paper to give it a bit more heft.)  I highly recommend this project if your kids produce as many precious (eg, can’t be thrown away in front of them) paintings as mine do!

This post at Living Well, Spending Less really encouraged me in my resolution to purge this year: “The reason our grandparents and great-grandparents could live with a handful of tiny closets in their modest 1400 square foot homes is that they simply didn’t accumulate the massive quantities of things that we have today.”

So that’s why I’m aiming to get rid of 2014 items in 2014.  Anyone want to join me?  I’m having a garage sale tomorrow (yes, here in SoCal, garage sale season is all year round!), and I’m hoping to get rid of a lot of outgrown clothes and baby items!

Because baking is my favorite homemaking task, here’s something fun for Valentine’s Day: I love, love, love the idea of these Heart Shaped Granola Bars from Having Fun at Home.  Too cute!

As you may have noticed, we’ve named our Friday round-up posts after Edith Schaeffer’s The Hidden Art of Homemaking, a book that celebrates the multitude of ways that a homemaker can use her gifts and talents to emulate the creativity of our Creator.  Mrs. Schaeffer has greatly encouraged us here at E2S in our calling as homemakers, and we hope that we’re encouraging you, too.  We’d love to share more hidden art inspiration from our readers, so please email me at contact@everythingtosomeone.com if you have projects, pictures, and/or links to share.  You might be featured in a future HAF!

Have a great weekend, and stop by my house tomorrow if you’re local!

    I love the banner. I’m always a little perplexed at what to do with so many paintings around. The post from LWSL looks great; I’ll have to read it.
