53/365 : It's coming...

Max is going to be turning three next month.

 

I can't believe it.

 

We made these invitations tonight before bed. I've been hording my magazines without any reason. The stacks in our apt were getting out of control. The other day a friend of mind had done decoupage with her daugher and it gave me an idea for little art projects I can do with Max during the week. We would sit together and flip through magazines and he'd tell me which pictures to cut out. For a week now I've been collecting images so we could make his birthday invitations. So, with glue stick in hand Max hand picked each image for his friend's invitations. Note to self: buy colored glue sticks so we can see where he's gluing things. After Max went to bed, I brushed glossy decoupage glue over the magazine cuttings to make them nice and shiny.

 

I have been waiting a long time for Max and I to be able to do these kinds of projects. I must admit that I prefer to sit at the table and make art then getting down on the floor for rough house play. Good thing Julien and I share these duties. :)

 

He's invited four boys and two girls. I think you can clearly see which invitations if for his "copains" and his "copines".

 

I'm really happy with how these turned out. I *heart* happy tape!
