Minecraft Canvas Art

 

Summer 2016, we had moved to a new city and my eldest son was a little sad because he was leaving his friends from school. As a mother, I didn’t like to see my child so sad, even though he tells me he’s fine. A mother always knows when there is sadness to her child.

My son felt distant for a couple of weeks, so one morning I got all my kids to go with me to Jo-ann’s Craft, Michael’s, and Home Depot to pick up some supplies to create Minecraft decor for my eldest sons bedroom. I thought this would be a fun thing to do and talk about it with my son while his little brothers are busy with their own craft. It’s worth a try, why not?

Materials used:

  • 8×8 Canvas
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paint Brushes (different sizes)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Ice tray (used for placing or mixing paint)
  • Bowl of water (used for rinsing the paint brush)
  • Newspaper (used to protect our dining table)
  • Example drawing found at Pinterest

First, we used a ruler to mark 1″ increments from left to right, up and down on the canvas.

Then, laid out newspaper to protect our dining table. Then start painting.

 

Minecraft Dresser

 

BEFORE

I needed a tall dresser for my sons room and found this on Offer Up for $20.

First, I laid out a tarp to protect the carpeting and moved the dresser on top of it. I wiped it down, to make sure that it’s clean and smooth, and then I removed the handles.

Materials used:

  • Tarp
  • Green paint
  • Black paint
  • Painters tape
  • Mod podge
  • Paint/Foam brushes

I bought the paint at Home Depot. And these are the ones that are on the color sample containers.

In my opinion, one small container was more than enough to use for this dresser. My son helped me picked the appropriate color that matches the Minecraft character (Creeper).

  1. Start wiping the dresser down. Then placed the painters tape for the eyes/nose/frown mouth (I will get measurements in a bit).
  2. Once the painters tape is done.
  3. Paint green and let it dry (repeat this process for bolder color).
  4. Remove the painters tape slowly.
  5. Used my smaller paint brush for eyes/nose/frown mouth with black acrylic paint and let it dry (repeat this process for bolder color).
  6. Once the black paint is dry, then Mod podge to seal it.
  7. Let it dry overnight

My Diary

Baby Carriers

Baby Carriers

This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure for more information.

My second child was only 1.5yo when my third child was born. When my hubby went back to work from paternity leave, I was left alone with 2 babies at home. I then realized that I had to figure out something. How will I manage 2 babies all by myself? With one wanting to play, and the other wanting to be carried was definitely a new challenge for me. I couldn’t do much work around the house either because the newborn was always crying looking for me.

To be honest, I am still so tired from my other toddler I can’t even think. That is when I jumped into my laptop to do a little research to see if there’s a solution to be found online. How can I make this work?

Babywearing! ..Hmm, it’s not like I never tried this before. My second child did not appreciate it when I used it on him and he would scream.. But now I thought, why not try it again?

I searched online to see what is the best carrier my baby would like.. My goodness, there was tons! And the cost of these items weren’t cheap either.

 

  1.  Rebozo Knot Baby Sling with a Scarf

I can be so frugal at times that I went into my closet to see if I had anything I could use for practice before I go to the store and buy one. I found a large scarf of mine and I practiced to do the knot that will hold and secure my baby to my body. I practiced till I felt comfortable enough to place my baby inside the wrap.

Once comfortable enough to put my baby in the sling. I swayed and it seemed like, in seconds, I happen to look down and my baby was fast asleep. I was impressed!

I was able to put my baby down and play with my toddler and do other things around our home.

So impressed and excited that I had the urge to make different kinds of slings. I wanted to make sure that I have a clean sling available in case something spills, peed on, etc.

 

I borrowed my mother-in-law’s sewing machine and bought a tablecloth at Walmart to test it out. (I wish that I took more photos to do the how-tos).

 

2.  Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC)

This wrap is 7 yards of fabric that I had purchased at Jo-ann Fabrics Store. I sewed and dyed it myself.

This carry is one of my favorites and it’s called Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC). My baby almost instantly falls asleep when I wrap him in this carry. It is what I use almost every night to rock him to sleep.

 

3.  Ring Sling

This fabric was Linen 100% cotton that I also bought at Jo-ann Fabric Store. I also sewed and dyed it myself.

With this sling, there’s a ring added to it (instead of doing a knot). The process is just faster and it gives a different look but serves the same purpose of doing a rebozo knot in my opinion.

 

4.  Mei Tai

I bought the Duck fabric and Batman fabric on Amazon and found the pattern online. I sewed and modified it to my liking.

Canvas Duck 10 oz Dyed Solid Fabric BLACK / 60″ W / Sold by the yard

Batman Tossed Emblems Black Fabric By The Yard

(Took this photo just to show my hubby how fast our baby sleeps on these carriers).

5.  Ergobaby

My baby is about 6 months on this photo and definitely weighed more. I could no longer put him in front of me whenever I would work around our home. He was starting to get too bulky for me.

I found Ergobaby carrier that felt secure enough to place my baby on my back. So when I moved around, he would not fall.

My first transfer and my baby did not wake up. This mommy was doing the silent happy dance! 🙂

 

I love babywearing!
