I've really been on a crafting spree this week! I have started quite a few projects that I'm excited about! Randy cut the wood for something I'm in the process of painting. First, I sanded it; next, I'll put the nails in. It's a secret until I finish, so you'll have to wait. I also transferred images to some little bags you'll see below. Just enough for each of the girls to have one, if I so choose. I think their Moms would like one instead. We'll see. If I had a booth, I'd put them in it to sell. I'm also ready to start making molds. I've read and watched videos so now I'm ready! I can hardly wait to do that! I also made gesso, or texture paste; whatever you want to call it. It turned out good. I added some more glue to thin it cause it was a little thick. It's used in mixed media for stenciling or anything you'd use gesso on.
Our weather has been nice lately. I thought the hens would lay eggs, but not yet. I guess they knew the weather would get cold again. There have been years that we would just go right into Spring about March. It could still happen, but for the next week we will be experiencing much colder temps. I am truly thankful we don't have to deal with extreme cold and snow! I used to think when I was younger, that I would love to live in a more frigid climate. Not anymore! I'll take the thunderstorm over the Arctic Blast any day! Ya'll stay warm and have a wonderful Happy Valentine's weekend! Blessings from Bama!
|Iron-on transfer bags. I love the roses!|
|Gesso on heart.|
|Lovely roses delivered by none other than the hubs himself!|
|Pink chalk paint.|
|Randy is so ingenious! He turned the sander upside-down so I could sand without trying to hold the sander and the wood! The clasp is pinched onto the on button so I don't have to hold it.|
|We had leftover smoked chicken so I put it in this tortilla soup. Oh man, is it good!|
|Smoked chicken alfredo, definitely better than Olive Garden!|
|Lovely little daffodils.|
|Made some more English muffins.|
