I am in the process of creating a _______ out of _________ created from ________ which I have never done before!! Its only about a third done, it takes a LOT of ________ to make it!
I also painted a ___________ a base color, and plan to paint something on it... (on to do research here in a second...) and figure out what else I want to make... I have one project that requires the use of my husband to turn a ________ into a ________ or a _______....
oh oh oh oh oh oh.... so the lacquer is dry, and it looks FABULOUS... I totally need to make a ton more of this type of craft... who knew I could _______ old ________ and the lacquer wouldn't ruin the way the ________ looks or feels!!!! Sweet!
I do have to say though, my large fell on my medium while lacquer was wet, I resprayed and then when I checked the dry version, I realized a bit of the ________ from the large got on the ________ from the medium and it was sealed under lacquer, so I decided not to retouch it and reseal it, because it might not look uniform then. ALso, there is a blemish on the back of the large, from removing an ornate ________ butterfly... I left it as is.. because trying to make it different, would only result in some outlandish godawful accessory that may not look cool... so I might stick a roller derby pin over it... hehe.
Let me just say this, I totally want to go to the thrift store and buy tons of these, I revamped a ________ of my own, which I adored its style, but it was perfect for an item from my partners _________.
sighs, I can't wait to send this stuff off!!!!! I am so excited... can you tell? I thought this morning what am I ever going to do... but look at me now... life is good! giggles
OKAY... update... I completed three items! Kinda a set, but one is not the same... hehe. So three smalls down... I have an idea for one item, but don't have the makings for it yet... not sure if I ll have time to go and buy more stuff, but perhaps. Another is sitting in front of me, but isn't started yet...
I ll finish that one by the end of the night...
But my large is the problem at the moment... oh and I do have one more set of smalls.
I am only just starting on some things tonight. I am procrastinating, not on purpose, but it took a while to get my other swap things done, so tonight I hope to get a bit done for my partner! I have three things in mind to make, just got to get on it!
Wow, we have some very talented people in this group by the way! way too many gorgeous packages, and here's one more:
Quilted made me a beautiful lapquilt with a Friends theme, its so nice, and the fabrics are from stethoscope covers she made me and postage stamp quilt squares from others on Craftster, and she got me a GothChicks necklace from her etsy and made me earrings as well all housed in a little Friends tin and a treat for the pups, which I might add, loved it and its already ripped to shreds... eek!
Just checking in, haven't started this just yet... been busy with family stuff, and finishing today the last big item for my make a friend swap. I have a grand idea, and I need the hubbies help, but I hope to make an awesome item for my partner if we can make it work!
