If you have a little one in kindergarten or teach K-2 yourself, you know what I mean by R.O.Y.G.B.I.V.. Don't worry about saying each letter, it's pronounced Roy G Biv. My middle chick told me what this was when she was in kindergarten.
This acronym stands for:
The month of March is all about little green men, four leaf clovers, pretty rainbows and a pot of gold. I have been working on everything green and pots of gold (I'll share those with you another day) so I decided to tackle that colorful rainbow.
In my office I have a drawer full of picture frames so I went searching for a white frame. I found a real simple 5x7 wooden frame that would work perfectly. Then I cut a piece of white card stock to fit the frame. Next I pulled out my jar of buttons and poured them onto my craft table.
After I had my 5x7 paper and variety of buttons I started designing my rainbow. I tried a vertical layout and then horizontal. Once I decided on a horizontal layout I warmed up the ol' glue gun and got to work gluing each button into place.
I didn't have enough room or buttons to represent all of Roy G Biv. So I let Mr. Biv go by Roy G B.. Last names can be so formal sometimes.
After all my buttons were glued in place and the hot glue strings were removed I wrote "Lucky..." in the bottom corner.
Doesn't it make you mad when you have a vision of a craft in your head, then you add your own handwriting to it and it's just not like what you imagined? Maybe it's just me, but I don't think so. I'm not thrilled with my handwriting but at least I didn't misspell anything, right?
I think I'll put this in our half bath. There isn't any natural light in that room, maybe this will brighten it up a bit.


  1. very cute and your handwriting looks great too. :)


  2. I wanted to let you know I included this post in my "Weekend Round-Up" here:
