I've been a little preoccupied this week so I haven't had a new post since last Sunday. We have a new addition to our family and I'd like to share a few pictures with you of Fiona our 10 month old papillon. She loves to cuddle and be held. She's not too sure about our CKC spaniel who is quite a bit larger than her. He is very excited to have a new buddy and she's a bit overwhelmed with him right now.
There is a saying in the south that if the Good Lord made anything better than iced tea, he kept it for himself. We drink a lot of tea around here. My husband and son love sweet tea & I drink it unsweetened. My husband and son also love MickeyD sweet tea for a buck!
This summer I had a collection of empty tea jars so I wanted to see what I could do with them. I was inspired by a Plaid video showcasing Mod Podge and glass jars.
I adapted the project so I could call on some of my digital graphic stash to make these candle holders.
For my digital graphics I printed a paper of antique maps from Miss Crow's Magickal Emporium™ , Jaguarwoman's "Wetlands" Backgrounds and my all time favorite designer Miki Ferkul.I have a lot of Miki's kits and I cannot remember which one that this print came from.
I printed these and applied them to the jars with Mod Podge. I opted for battery operated candles for safety reasons.
Hopefully tomorrow I can take photos of recycled pro…
This was a wedding gift that I made this summer. I have glass etched a few glasses and Christmas ornaments, but this was the first baking dish that I've ever done. I need to personalize a few of my dishes that I take to family reunions and church dinners!
This was one of my first fabric projects to cut. I took my mother-in-law to a senior citizen lunch and bingo game & I won this bag which came from the Dollar Tree,lol! I got to pick my prize from several different things & I chose this one because I knew I could decorate it!
I wanted to make a doggie mat for my CKC spaniel & I came up with this. I've been a fan of the Mod Podge Rocks blog for some time. I've dabbled in mod podge for years even before there was an internet,lol! I used designs from Lettering Delights Simple Shapes & fabric to make this mat for my dog. He seems pleased with it too.
This summer I found a really cute recycling idea at In my own style using an old mop stick, tuna can & a glass globe. I had the stick & tuna can so I followed the blogger's advice & went to the local Salvation Army thrift store to find my globe. To my delight I found the perfect size for my project. I also found a huge globe & I'm still looking for a can that I can use to create the next project.
I used brushed metal spray paint, stick, tuna can and a plastic coke cap to make mine. I also bought a battery operated tealight for the lantern.
This is a photo of the first wedding tile that I made this summer. I've discovered that making tiles can become addicting! For this tile I purchased a monogram set from http://visualdesignsbychris.com/. The file I purchased was this great monogram set "Monogram 6" http://www.visualdesignsbychris.com/store/product.php?productid=18006&cat=0&page=1 This files come with 6 different file formats with the entire alphabet. A
total of 156 files when you count all those file types.
At our annual family reunion we always give out door prizes. I'm thinking that this would be a great idea. My brother and I are in charge of the 2013 reunion so that gives me a little time to make a few,lol!
