Donna Downey inspired ♥ Mother/Daughter aprons (HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!)


This past weekend was so amazing. My daughter and I have been planning for a few weeks now to make our very own Donna Downey inspired aprons. I had placed an order for some Donna Downey foams stamps....iron ons, etc. My beautiful friend Rose did a video of her altered apron which turned out AMAZING!!! I was so excited when I saw her post because these aprons were on our mind.

On Friday, Kasi and I put down brown paper on the floor and set out all the goodies. First thing Saturday morning, we started our aprons. WE HAD A BLAST!!!!! After our aprons she wanted to work on painting some canvas pieces and we did just that. We spent the ENTIRE day crafting. She is truly inspired by Donna Downey. As soon as I come in the door from work on Wednesdays she tells me...."uuummm mom, it's Inspiration Wednesday" and after dinner, we watch the videos together. We have even gone back and watched all the videos Donna has on her You Tube channel. (We ♥ Donna Downey!!!!)

Donna will be in FL on the 26th of February and Kasi told me that all she wanted for her birthday (2/20) was to take Donna's canvas mini album class but I told her that I waited to long and that the class was "SOLD OUT". Well about a week and a half ago I called the LSS and booked that last two spots available for the Saturday class. I can't wait to see her face when she finds out we are actually going to not only MEET Donna Downey, but we will be attending the class. I'm super excited. I have a special surprise for her but I will post it on February 20th......

Anywho - I hope everyone had a beautiful Valentine's day with their loved ones......I know I did!!!!

Here I leave you with our mother/daughter altered aprons, Kasi's altered canvas to me and the Valentine roses from my amazing boys!!

Hugs to all,

This is my apron:

This is Kasi's apron....she made is all by herself except the sewing of the laces - I did that for her. She chose her colors, the canvas bird, flowers and stamps. I LOVE my little crafter!!!!

And our little CUTIE at the door of our craft room just looking at us......she's so awesome!!!

My beautiful Altered canvas from my princess...she totally LOVES the "Dripage" technique!!!

The roses from my boys.....
