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...

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.

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.

This is a cupcake themed ATC that was drawn by rockingbearranch!  She drew this tasty looking item inside a really cool birthday card for me that she found during her travels with her Little Visitor from another swap.

I love the "dreamy" quality of the drawing!  Thanks, rockingbearranch!

Bearnard and I have been a little quiet due to bad bugs hanging around this house, they have been very insistent about not wanting to leave! However, we did manage to meet some friends for a cold, blustery dog walk, where we just avoided the rain.

We found an interesting tree with lots of holes in that were just Bearnard sized

And this is about half way back to the car, the white patches straight up from his head are the cars in the car park. The climb up is hard work, but worth it, and at least it is all down hill on the way back!

Next week Bearnard is going to come to work with me for the day and I will show him around Chichester, it is such a beautiful city, with a lovely cathedral. And the end of February we are up in London for the weekend to see the Cirque du Soleil at the Royal Albert Hall, so will just squeeze that in before he goes back home!

Twin-free evening yesterday, and Hubby and I went to see Deadpool... Wink

We also have a "Spectacle of light" at St. Andrew's Square just now ... interesting exhibition!

I'm sorting through the photos this weekend and will order them, and hopefully get some time to start on the scrapbook next week (schools are off next week).
