toilet paper

  Lydia went through a phase about a month ago that I forgot to post about.  Anytime I would get mad at her, or tell her "no".  She would run into the bathroom and unroll all the toilet paper, unroll it so far that it would be off the cardboard holder.  Then she would run in to show me what she had done...kind of a like a "so there!"
  I saved this one :)
 And last, since Christmas has come and gone I can show you the project I made for my family.  Dave and I took pictures of letter-like objects in Denver & Golden.  Then I put the pictures on painted cork board and varnished it to look like tile.  We did Rozeski, Talley, Mauger, and Arp.  I love them, and still have a ton of cork board left if anyone wants to try it :)

That toilet paper scene looks very familiar...

And I love your picture project! I'm normally not very into name plaquette-type stuff (no vinyl lettering for me), but that idea is very, very cool.

Toilet paper has always been something we've battle over at our house. Potty training did not help...

And awesome name project! I love it. I bet everywhere you go now, you see letters in unusual places :) You're going to put the vinyl lettering people out of business.

You pictures turned out soooooo awesome. A great date and a great gift, you can't beat that!

I love your name pictures. I saw something like that once for sale. It cost an exorbitant amount of money. If Dave ever gets sick of his job, you know you have something to fall back on.

I love the picture project with all of my heart! Such a cool idea that I am definitely going to steal! I had to laugh about the "get you back" thing because I swear Maddy does that too (just not with toilet paper). :)

Have I mentioned how awesome I think Lydias attitude is? By the way, everyone who has seen my sign is totally amazed by you!

The toilet paper is hilarious! What a smart little girl :-).

AND>..your corkboard idea is AWESOME! I love it! If I lived closer, I would take you up on that cardboard offer.
