Artful Thursday – Family Portrait

March 11, 2010
This is NOT my Artful Thursday project. This is the project I need to replace.
family portrait
(I’ll be working on it today and tonight, will have updated pictures here in the morning.)

This is the family portrait I have hanging in the entry of my house. There’s a couple of things wrong with it. First of all, I lost my head. Nobody knows where it went, it just came unglued one day, disappeared and I put up a post-it note to replace it. I think that was at least a year or two ago. Secondly, the little child is now almost as tall as I am. Not to mention the unhealthy candy-bars we’re made of (but after a week of thinking I still haven’t thought of a better substitute) So… it’s time for a do-over. That’s what Artful Thursday is for!

Come back on Friday for updated picture! (or subscribe for email updates…)

Thursday night update: This project will be delayed a week... my girls freaked out when they saw that I wanted to re-do this picture, so I need to find another base and re-think it a bit. I'll start from scratch on another frame I have around and keep this one hanging in an upstairs hallway. Also, I think I'm coming down with a cold, so I'm not going to stay up late working on it like I usually do.

Join me here for some exciting projects from around the world!


  1. cant wait to see what you come up with.


  2. Well, you gave me a good laugh with the fact that you lost your head!! Hope your Hubby's name isn't Henry...that's just too funny! And I love the candy bar body's!!!! That would work so well for my family, I think it's a great touch!
    Can't wait to see what you come up with. And hope you get to feeling better...

  3. that was too cute- it will be fun to see what you do to replace it.

  4. Tammy, this is soo cute and i am looking forward to see what come out of it. :) Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to yoU!

  5. I like the candy bar bodies! (I used to use candy wrappers in collages, but I never made anything 3D like this.)

  6. Your creativity is inspiring..love this blog!

  7. I love that your kids protested about not wanting you to do a re-do. Sometimes we just don't realize how precious things are to our children. I think the original is awesome and can't wait to see the new one.

  8. I just LOVE this! I hope you don't mind, but instead of inviting you to link to this at my blog linking party, the list is about to close for the week, so added you! Pure creativity like this is something I want to share with my readers, and I'm so glad you entered the giveaway so I could "meet" you! Please come to the party next Sunday! all the best,

  9. Oh good! You're going to keep it! I love it along with your post-it note head!
    Yes, make a new up-to-date portrait!

  10. Almost done with the new one... http://tamdoll.blogspot.com/2010/03/artful-thursday-family-portrait-2010.html
