Some of this can be blamed on my husband...he's trying to keep me busy. But, now, instead of the weekly trip to Walmart to "pick up a few things" we end up in town at Joann's or Michael's or both. These two rooms are stuffed to overflowing into the hallway and HE thinks I need more stuff! Oh, and of course there is a Dollar Tree by our Walmart so naturally that has become part of the weekly trip. Now, I am a MORNING person. Can you say rise and shine at 3 a.m.? So, by the time we return home, I am completely exhausted and no crafting gets done. Sometimes I just toss the bags into the first room and that's where they stay until the next creative whim hits me. Then, I HAVE to put things away and straighten the rooms before I can start crafting. Vicious cycle, isn't it?
ANYWAY, here are a few things that I have managed to work on lately. Enjoy!
This is a picture frame that I painted white then added foam flowers to it.
This picture frame was decoupaged with designer paper. The blank spot at the bottom will display a plaque for customizing
This is a small suitcase that I crackle painted then trimmed out with lace, flowers, butterflies and pearl trim. The plaque in the middle is an acrylic piece I made with UTEE embossing powder. I added a metallics word "grow" underneath and tied a bow to it.
And, this is Katie's birdhouse! Katie is my 3 year old granddaughter . She told me what she wanted on it and where. I think I having a budding crafter here.
