Do you ever want to spend time with your hubby without the kids interrupting? Last year my Hubby and I attended a class called Growing Kids Gods Way at a local church . It was a great class about teaching kids (and parents) so many different things and how to live a life with God in your heart.
In the class the kids learned that "couch time" meant they were to play quietly without interrupting their parents. There are a lot of benefits other than the few minutes for mom and dad to talk. The kids learn to play together quietly, how to respect rules and about nurturing relationships. We don't have couch time everyday but it's nice to take 10-15 minutes and have grown up time.
The couch was made using George and Basic Shapes and my Gypsy to weld. There are 3 separate layers to give the couch dimension. The first layer is the arms, which is a circle and rectangle, welded. Then I added a long rectangle between them with a stretched oval on top to create the cushion and the second layer. For the final layer I stretched the oval and the long rectangle up to create the back of the couch. I inked all the edges then used pop dots to separate the layers. You can see them here.
I cut a shadow and put the couch on the shadow to separate it from the background. The background and couch were the same color but a different shade so it was lost without the shadow. Then I used a pop of color ribbon to tie around the couch because it was too plain for me.
