Craftiness

Here are a few crafts I have been working on.........#1 Here is my "P" plate. It looks splotchy because it needs another coat of finishing spray. I really like how it turned out. I gave it the antique look by taking a razor blade and taking some paint (look at it close up). I love the yummy brown color. If you want to learn how to do it, go here. It was way cheap and easy to do - my 2 favorite things! #2:I believe Nic's sister (Cherise) made this. This is hanging to the right of our stove and I like to hang the recipe that I'm making for dinner on it. I decided that it need a little something, so I added "whats cooking." Nothing special, but I like how it added a little something extra. #3: If you can't read this, it says "plastic bags." Anytime Nic and I go grocery shopping, we keep our plastic bags. Well I didn't have a nifty bag to put them in, so instead I used this lovely plastic pretzel container. I took off the pretzel label and added my own label. It's nothing special, but now they aren't hanging on our back door, getting in the way and annoying me everytime I open our door. #4: Chalkboard block. Mine isn't very decorative but I love the flower touch. You can learn to make it here. Once again, very easy and cheap. Fun to write the date or leave someone special a little note. Those are some of the crafts I worked on.......
