I finished the Fall signs I was working on, and learned what Not to do next time I make them! Unless I watch a tutorial for decoupaging on wood, I'll just use a stencil! Lol! I hope to cut out some candy cane shapes from wood soon, but I'll just paint stripes on them. I hope that won't be hard! The stripes, I mean.
I had some cloth bags purchased from Hobby Lobby that I was going to decorate for Halloween for the girls, but their Mom wanted them to use their plastic pumpkins instead. I stamped some images on the bags and will show you in the photos below. I think I'll make some; and stain them with tea before decorating them. I want them to have a 'vintage' look. I'm really excited about all the fun things I want to do! There are no shops around here in which to sell handmade crafts. Antique stores cost too much to rent a booth. I am praying about how to display these so others can see them and hopefully purchase things I make. That would really be fun! I know about Etsy, and I may have to go that route; but I'd rather not have to ship things. I may start sharing more on Facebook. If ya'll have any ideas, please let me know!
I hope ya'll enjoy your beautiful weekend! Blessings from Bama!
|Ya'll know how I like to make things myself instead of buying them. Here's a rusting solution for metal when you're trying to get that 'aged' look. Hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and salt. It works!|
|These are jingle bells!|
|I have so, been enjoying my blue-cheese dressing this week! This is pasta salad. So yummy!|
|Looks better in the photo than in real life.|
|So many boo-boos on this!|
|A single cucumber on the voluntary cucumber vine that the cold got.|
|Bags stenciled with a doily and fabric paint I made with craft paint.|
|Winterlynn planted sunflower seeds in the pot a few months ago. The sunflowers are a sweet reminder of her.|
|An ephemera angel I stamped on. I don't like how it turned out, but this was the first one I did.|
|The angel turned out much better. Like the rusty bell?|
|This one turned out good too! Do you like the tag I made?|
