Re-purpose old patio chairs...

Hello Crafty Friends!

My daughter has been looking for some patio chairs, but she didn't want just any old patio chair, she wanted some with an old school vintage like look.  My mother in law has had these chairs outside on the side of her house for as long as I can remember (30+ years) and years ago I had asked her about them.  We never sat in them as I can recall and she said she didn't have any plans to use them, so I snagged them.

They are rusted through and through so I wasn't able to do too much to them, the metal tubing was literally flaking off in my hands if I pressed too hard and the bolts were so rusted on there that I was afraid of making a total mess of it.  They are sturdy enough to sit on though and the arms just have a few rusty holes in them so I just scrubbed them up and put on a few coats of paint. (Shabby chic right?!) They probably won't get much use anyways, more of an decorator item for her cute little patio.  :)

When my husband was young he had welded some braces on one of the chairs as they were showing some metal fatigue way back when.  So they had sentimental value for him.  :)  

So there you go Chels...a up cycled family heir loom.  :)  Enjoy!!

Now off to find a cute table.  :)

Hello Crafty Friends!

It was my hubby's birthday the other day.  He went on a motorcycle ride for the weekend with his friend and our son.  They had a wonderful time cruising up the Norther California coastline and through the Redwood Forest.

My hubby <3

So staying with the Redwood Tree theme, I made this card for him.  :)

Baby Shower for Vianna Rae...

Hello Crafty Friends!

I had to share the Baby shower card and water bottle labels I made for the shower.  Vianna Rae will soon be making her appearance and we can't wait!!  My Bestie is soooo lucky.  She has two wonderful and beautiful DIL's!!  (I should say her boys are lucky too, hehe.)

I found this cute little girl dress template on Paper Crafts and created
my own designer paper using ladybugs2love stamp set
from The {Stamps} of Life

I actually learned how to make polk a dot paper on Photoshop!  There are some great
tutorials on YouTube.  
Had to share my Besties delicious artwork!   

Here's momma Tania and her beautiful diaper cake.
I'm not sure who made it, but it's adorable and I had

Wine glass gift ideas for teachers....

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Just wanted to pop in and say "HI!!!" and share a crafty project that my daughter made for her fellow teachers last day of school gifts.  (From now on she will be painting on glass for all of my projects, she has great writing.)  LOL!  My contributions were the wine charms (a little Swarovski bling).  I really miss beading and really should get back into it!  I have TONS of beads.
