Funny Photo Boards

I'm so glad I set this goal to paint and get a head start on this project. It was fun, productive, got my kids excited, and made me happy.

. Monster Man is making gorilla noises while Sweet Terror is screaming, "Aaaaa, don't eat me!"
This gorilla just needs a second coat of paint on his fur and this one will be finished. I'm painting these with basic craft paint on Elmers display boards that I bought for a buck a piece at Micheal's craft store.
.The next one I'm working on here is the mermaids. Sweet Terror is so excited about this one but she goes ballistic anytime I have one of the boys, or even Mr. Hotness, pose behind it. Apparently boys are NOT allowed to be mermaids.

Once I get the background painted and lighten up the rock I can add all the fun stuff like jewelry and all sorts of fishy friends and whatnot.
I want to paint two more scenes but am having a hard time deciding what to paint. What do you recommend?
Now for this next week's goal. I've been thinking about this a lot. It is going to be very weird. My husband may not speak to me all week if I do this. I'm sure the kids will get in all sorts of trouble and it will be my fault. But if the all-knowing Dwight says it's a good thing then how can I NOT do it? So, for one week, starting tomorrow and ending after I write next Saturday's post, when at home I will only sit on the floor or... ON MY EXERCISE BALL. Yup, I will sit on it at the dinner table, while on the computer, and... oh, wait, I need to change this goal. When at home I will only sit on the floor, MY EXERCISE BALL, or the toilet. This is going to be a veeeeery interesting week. I'm thinking this goal is going to encourage me to get out of the house more often. =)
What craaaaazy things are you going to try doing this week? Remember, no matter how hard it seems, it's For Just One Week so you can do it! If you write a post about your For Just One Week goal share it here.

What a fun project. I can only imagine the fun your kids are having with this one.

Stephanie said...

My kids vote for T-Rex. Aliens would be good too. Are those too masculine? What about ballerinas? Bicyclists or pole vaulters? Mickey votes for spiders, big giant spiders. Autumn says "something that flies."
How about a pterodactyl? A dinosaur that flies.

Those picture boards turned out awesome! How funny is it that boys aren't "allowed" to be mermaids?!? :)

Would love to see them when they're all done too!

Sonja said...

Those are fantastic! Your kids are sooo lucky. My girls agree whole-heartedly with Sweet T. Boys should NOT be mermaids. :)

The picture of the screaming banana will make me chuckle all day today!!

Becky said...

That is a very funny goal! I had an exercise ball once but my daughter wanted to see what would happen if she stuck a pencil in it. It popped! Imagine that!!!

I am still working on our new schedule. I want to start a new habit but I think the schedule is all I can handle for now. Or forever.

Sarah said...

how fun! I looove anything to do with Jim and Dwight...How bout putting their bodies on a headless posterboard? Eh, then it would just be two guys in suits and where's the fun in that?

Beth said...

Wow exercise ball or the floor?!? I don't think I could do that. I find it impossible to sit on the floor for more than 10 minutes in a row, lame me I guess. So good luck!

Richelle said...

I would like to see that, bouncing on the ball all day. You are so funny!

I love the pictures. They are looking great.

Online betting is just another rapidly growing diversion in the visual community. You will bet on the sport you choose through websites on the internet. All the details of betting are stated clearly on the site itself, including the possible amount that you may get if you'll win.

You like the Chargers because they are having a great season, prolific offense, strong defense and they are racking up wins. Since the San Diego offense has been clicking, you also think that a lot of points will be scored during this game.

For example, you gamble not-so-obviously (and do not bet) whenever you lay out money in the simple hope of retaining your wealth (such as buying a house or putting your savings into a higher paying deposit account) and rather more obviously when you attempt to increase your wealth by investing in shares (again not a bet) or by participating in sports betting. As you can see, therefore, all the foregoing are forms of gambling, no matter that some people may attempt to draw dividing lines between them to make their preferred form of gambling more socially acceptable.
football betting [url=][img][/img]premiership football betting[/url]
You can either go the traditional way or the point spread - that is picking either the underdog or the favorites or just betting against your brother's team to spite him. In a traditional bet, you have to deduct points from your score to predict the winner. If you want the underdog to win, the deducted points should be added to the final score. The result will let you know if you've covered the bet. [url=]football betting[/url] Myth #9: It's never wise to bet on rumors
Reality: Oh, yes it is. For example, if a professional bettor hears a rumor that Peyton Manning has the flu and is too ill to play quarterback for the Colts, he'll quickly bet on Indianapolis' opponent. If the rumor is correct, the gambler has stolen the line on a game that's certain to change. If the rumor is false, then he's played Indianapolis' opponent at a fair price. Since most lines are accurate, the bettor takes little betting risk in chasing a rumor.

Indeed, there’s always a place to find football betting tips. It’s just a matter of knowing where to look.
