Yes, I know it’s Saturday, but with soccer and garage sales I haven’t crafted today. I did pick up a great frame for a corkboard (now I need a 40% off coupon for the cork) another wooden plate for a pedestal, and a t-shirt with great letters for an upcycled bag.
Yesterday, however, I crafted like crazy. My friend Steph came over and we recycled some wine bottles into the chalkboards as I’ve seen all over blogland. I haven’t put chalk on them yet because I can’t find the non-clay chalk. For the spray on chalkboard paint, it needs to be the super chalky stuff. Steph’s bottle said vino and mine said menu, as I intend to use it for my daily menu. I loved the sun coming through the trees, but it made for a bad picture.
We also painted a pedestal bowl for her mom’s birthday. I had a base that I had painted orange. I thought I would just sand past the orange to the wood when the time came, but once I revealed the orange under the teal, it was AWESOME!
The last project I’m showing was the first one I accomplished yesterday. I’ve had this ladybug (and another one with a butterfly) print for a number of years. They adorned the girls bathroom in previous homes. We have different decor now so I could re-purpose the frames. I used some scrap fabric from T3′s quilt and cut the T out with my Silhouette. On a sad note, I’ve lost the other two guides for my Silhouette, preventing me from cutting anything other than thin material :( Will be digging through the trash in the craft area later to see if they are there.
