I'm at it again!


Well, the last couple weeks have been busy. Did not get done all I wanted to but that is OK. The hubs did happen to make matching night stands for our bedroom that match the new bench that sits at the end of our bed. Yeah! I will post about those another time.
Today I am getting ready for our YM/YW activity. I will post about that tomorrow. It should be lots of fun! I hope! Keep your fingers crossed.
Any hoo, I also whipped this beauty up today for one of my Young Women who has a birthday this month. I used what I had around the house and I love it. Might have to make one for my daughter. I just cut that 1-4 to size, sanded it, painted it, then printed off the picture ( I got it from The Idea Door web site under Young Womens), rubbed some ink on the edges. I sanded the edges of the board after it dried then mod podged the picture on and put a coat of mod podge on top and let it dry. I made the flower by cutting 3 different size circles in contrasting printed scrapbook paper, rubbed ink on them then waded them up and them opened them up. It gave them the dimensional look I wanted. I added a decorative brad to the middle of them got out my trusty hot glue gun and put the flower on the the board.
I really like how it turned out. Hope Lizzy likes it! Have a great week! And happy crafting! :O)
