3rd Trimester stress relievers

Now that my schedule is not as busy, I have been thinking about this baby a lot more! It almost scares me at times to think in less than 3 months a new life will be here! I often wonder what he will look like and how much it will change me as a person. We have so much to do and I feel like there's not enough time but thankfully I have my husband who tells me to just take one day at a time and savor the moments, which is what I'm gonna do! So in the mean time as a stress reliever, I do projects! That usually soothes me and makes me happy!
This last week, I decided to try something new to me but I have seen done before and thought it would be cool to try. I made a Chevron inspired Record Bowl. I was nervous at first but it was pretty simple! 
All you do is get an old record, preheat the oven to 250 place the record on an oven proof bowl upside down and stick it on a cookie sheet.


 I watched mine, but I think it took like 5-7 min, as soon as you take it out of the oven you, place it inside the bowl quickly, to mold it, but you don't have much time, as it cools fast! If you don't get to mold it in time you can always stick it back in the oven.


Then paint it whatever color you like! I decided to try and do a chevron pattern, which was the tricky part, I used masking tape and taped out the design and then just painted the black. I had to go over some of it with black sharpie but I like the way it turned out! For now I put my bracelets in it and it works perfect!

So to not be stressed out this summer I will continue with my projects!
