We bought this varnished pine set of drawers yesterday to add some storage to my craft room. I loved the size of it, and the handles were already perfect! Lots of sanding and a little paint later and I have somewhere fun to store craft supplies. The 'guest' sign is just propped there for now.

I just need to add a coat of antique wax when that arrives next week and it's ready to fill! Grin







Here's how it looked before...but after I tested the first drawer for paint...

You can buy wire and use crepe paper to cover it.  Use a thicker gauge for the base ( like a 16 guage, and some thinner gauge for the leafy stems - you can wrap some together to branch them out for sets of leaves, curve the ends a bit and glue the leaves to them.  By adding a bit of a loop at the end, you have a wider support for the leaf, do a bit of shaping, and also hide the sharp end of wire.  Plain old craft glue should work fine.

I liked using coffee filters for leaves when I made roses last year for the mothers in the family - they coloured nicely, glued nicely, and the paper was flexible, and formed nicely.

It keeps OK - I make that spray too - the problem is that sometimes the nozzles can gum up, and the mica can settle at the bottom, as with commercial sprays.  If you want the mica powders to be more pure in colour, you may want to pick up some clear acrylic medium to mix the mica powder in. 

You can also just wet them with water and paint with them directly, or dust them on top of a painted surface when it still has some tack.

I was playing around with texture with gesso and I got the golden sheen on this canvas by dry brushing the golden mica powder onto the painted surface that was almost completely dry, the base is a dark blue.

Wow, I love so much that you guys have been doing! This craftalong is fantastic!

I hope it's okay that I've made the same thing for seven days in a row.  They do have different personalities, though.  I'm going to let each of my kids pick one for Valentine's tomorrow.  And any leftovers I'm going to give to little kids at church. 


pattern again

I don't mind being claimed by the same people or for the same theme. I think some people do it a little differently, like claiming those who have claimed them, or claiming when they have free time in their schedule. I'm itching to make a claim but I ran out of swap spots.  Cry

WOW! That quilt is fabulous! I love the various expressions on the owls and the little mushrooms.

I also received a fantastic package from puzzled-penguin!  It was waiting for me when I got home last night.  The temperatures here in Boston have plummeted this weekend and these goodies really warmed my heart!

first, a cute card and some woodland postcards that I get to color myself!  I love these!


next, I opened the absolutely cutest needle book!!  Puzzled-penguin embroidered the most adorable, grumpy baby bird!!

How could anyone not smile whenever they see this?!?!

then, a simply wonderful embroidered hoop from one of my favorite books, The Wind in the Willows!!

Mole and Ratty are loading the boat for a picnic on the river.  It's so lovely and reminds me of many memorable picnics I've enjoyed myself!

Thank you so much, puzzled-penguin!!!!  You hit it out of the park with this package!!  I'm thrilled with it all!!  I can only hope that mine gives you as much joy.
