Uh-oh...Guess what?!?!

Hello Crafty Friends!!

I got a Wacom Graphics Tablet from a local on-line garage sale here in our town.  I am sooooo excited.  I have been playing with it all day.  Can't wait to dive in and learn how to create my own custom digital creations and learn how to use in PhotoShop!!!

There is a huge learning curve for me, but I am up for the challenge. Already made a little holidy scene and a ghosty.  hehe.  Very rough, but I am sure I will get the hang of it eventually.  LOL!

4th Blogaversary and long overdue posting...

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

What a super busy few months I've been having.  Whew!!...I'm exhausted.  Time for a little down time and catch up on the blog.  I totally missed celebrating my 4th Blogaversary...WHAT?!?! IKR?! Oh well, there is always next year.  hehe

Lot's of new and exciting things going on around here that I will share soon, but until then, here is a really quick floral arrangement I made for the front door.  Just got a few fall floral groupings and VOILA!  Got to love Dollar Tree and Joann's 60% off sales.  :)

Before Spring/Summer

After Fall
Hopefully there will be more fall projects coming soon.

Until then...

New adventure...Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Part 1

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

Today I will be stepping out of my box and learning something new.  Painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  I am going to a free workshop at The Red Door Antiques & More  I am soooo excited!!! I already started working on my old bedroom furniture which will be the new guest bedroom furniture.  :)

I wanted to have a darker top, and tried using just the dark wax, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for.  Then I remembered I had left over Rustoleum Furniture Transformations from my daughters tables project here.  That was the color I was looking for and since all I was doing is the tops I had plenty for this project.

So here I will share the before and then after the workshop today, I will come home with supplies and get started chalk painting and antiquing and will share when I am finished.  Did I mention how excited I am!?!?

I got this bedroom set at a consignment shop many many years ago.  They looked
a lot nicer back then.  LOL!

You can see the wear and tear on the front night stand.  The back
one looked pretty much the same before I tried just the
dark was alone.


Just using the dark wax.  Not the look I was going for, but
if I was just cleaning it up I think it would work
just fine.
My leftover Rustoleum

I followed the directions, and skipped the glazing
process which is optional before I
put on the final protection coat.
My daughters tables from last year still look great so
I am very happy with this product.  Kind of pricey but since
I see I can use it on more projects worth it. 
These are the pulls I got from
Hint-buy when you get the email coupon for 10% off after you set up
an account.  I only paid
$49.74 for 25 pulls.  That was the cheapest I found.
OK, well I better get...workshop starts in 30 minutes!!!!  I'm soooo exciiiiited!!  Oh yeah, I think I mentioned that.  ;) lol
