A splash of color

My friend Fran's husband is amazing!! He makes all kinds of cool things with wood and I finally askd him to make me an ATG stand.  Usually he stains them, but I wanted to paint mine, so he made it plain.  This past weekend I scored some hot pink paint and had a ball! I painted the stand pink and then decided to paint my Cricut Condo.  It's basically a shelf my hubby made but it sounds much swankier calling it a Condo.  Anyway, I still need to make a vinyl shoe for the ends, but it's great for now.  I love how my craft room is getting some color!!  What do yall think?

Summer Banner

If you've read the previous post, you know last week I held a workshop devoted to care package items for college kids.  One of the projects was a "Welcome Home" banner.  I loved how it turned out, but don't have anyone to welcome home, so I made one for myself without the words and some (ok, a lot of) bling.  I added Stickles around the edges of the panels, on most of the images and then added liquid pearls on the sand dollar.  I even added glossy accents to the sunglasses.  Yesterday my favorite panel was the sand dollar, but today I'm liking the turtle the best.  I really like how it turned out and have it proudly hanging on my mantle.  Here are some pictures:

College Care Package Workshop

Oh my, I can't believe it's been over a month since my last posting.  I have just been so busy!  Anyway, today I co-hosted a College Care Package Workshop for 10 ladies.  The projects I presented were a pizza box that held a Pizza Hut gift card from the TBBM cartridge, a wrapper for a bag of microwave popcorn, a wrapper for a king size candy bar, a pencil made from Rollo candy, a powdered drink  pouch that hung over a water bottle, a paper frame for a 4x6 picture and a "welcome home" banner.  I love how everything turned out, especially the banner.  Here are some pictures:
