We made these trees to get more into the season. I love how they turned out, too. I just put some paint onto some paper plates and let the kids get their hands messy. At first, Terrick said he didn't want to get so messy but you and I both know that sometimes getting your hands messy is fun.
The leaves are handprints and the grass are fingerprints. I drew the stumps on the bottom after the paint dried. They look so cute on my wall now.
We managed the whole project without getting any paint on our clothes. Sent the kids to the bathroom to wash hands. No problems. Later, however, I found a towel smeared with paint in the bathroom. "It didn't all come off in the water," Terrick said. Thank goodness for washable paint. My towel looks good as new.

How I Became Shared Jelly
When my husband and I first got married we used to get messages on our answering machine for "Shared" and "Jelly" instead of Jared and Shelly. The first time we chuckled a little over it and by the fourth or fifth time, we decided the name should stick somewhere. And so, I've been sharing jelly all over the internet since. Enjoy!
