More Finished Pieces

So the weather has been beautiful today so I decided to work in the garage and outside finishing up a couple of things that I started a while back. I took some old window frames and jazzed them up a bit making them into cork/chalk boards. I've added knobs on the bottom for hanging other essentials and made custom push pins for the cork side.
I used the chalk board spray paint and coated the plywood with it. I didn't want a perfectly smooth look, so I left some of the detail in the wood when I sanded it before painting.

I don't know which one I like better!

I also finished a shelf I built from scratch, but the stain is drying at the moment. Pictures will be posted on it later! Back to work!

Work Update

Quick post. I'm hard at work finishing some of my Handmade'ns projects. My snowmen are starting to look like snowmen! And yes I spy, that is an almost empty glass of wine in the background...

Handmade'ns is Getting Close!

So I can't believe how fast time is flying! We are well into October! My Handmade'ns show will be here before I know it! Yikes!! It's time to start working overtime cranking out the holiday goodness. Here is one of the things that I managed to get done yesterday. I've got some more of these planned and I'll be doing a you tube video tutorial on them as well.

The happy holidays is just stamped on old book paper and then I applied glossy accents on top to give it a cool effect.

I also lined some of the embellishments with stickles for a little bit of bling...

So I'm sure you have all heard about Pinterest by now. And like me have been sucked into it's fabulous world. I wont even admit how much of my time has been spent surfing the pictures sketching new ideas. Here is one of the things that I spied on the pin and have made. Thank you for the original idea!

Here I Am!

I want to apologize! I have been MIA lately! I have been working working working. I've been getting things done and I can see the floor in my craft room. I just finished these pumpkins and they can be purchased at The Country Nest downtown Kearney! Prices of these range $4 - $10

Another thing I finished that can be purchased at the store is this awesome pumpkin wreath! It is mounted on an old bushel basket lid.

I've been working on some more things for Handmade'ns. I've got a couple of these old window cork boards. I'm also going to have some that are half chalk board and half cork board. I've added knobs to the bottom to hang your favorite items from.

After seeing these yarn wreaths on Pinterest I knew I wanted to make some. This is the first one that I've finished.

I sprayed the fall colored roses with a glimmer spray for a nice shine. I've got a couple more of these started.

Well it's back to work!
