I've added more to my list and pinned more pins! Anything anyone wants to attempt so I can pin something to their abilities? I hate clogging things up.  Roll Eyes

Hello I'm Laura from South Dakota!  I own a jungle of rescued pets, a mom to a crazy 3.5yr and 1yr old boys, a husband stuck in the 80's and I love home decorating. I love gray, gray/white combos, teal/aqua, brown/white, black/white for colors(almost any except orange, yellow, pink or neons). Anything involving/inspiring being a mom(my fav occupation!), pet rescue/adoption or something for my boys is awesome too. I will always love adding to my fabric stash too(shh don't tell my hubby). I don't mind used or re-purposed items either.... just have fun!

- ***We're moving into much older home so these items are needed to spruce it up! This color of bronze spray paint: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/33425222209351274/ ,  Annie sloan chaulk pain in a light grey or off white https://www.pinterest.com/pin/435301120219809487/ , finials or accents like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AbXDqwjFb6pyNBf6YaIFhM82t526dynAi8ixuRHej7ikuLSlhw3hxZA/ ,  wood stains: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/435301120219822776/ or "1001" house sign(or just the numbers is cool too) like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/435301120222584706/ , with letter T instead https://www.pinterest.com/pin/ASz4BODDs_N8jLkX2DBzNcEgXoUMNLzDH1BQKocEpGwYxTvbNcCs2qI/ , https://www.pinterest.com/pin/56787645281998174/

In a sad change of events, we're moving and I need to de-stash some of my supplies. Anyone interested in just supply claims???

I scored with Averia claiming me *cough* Claim me again for more shirts! * cough*. I have my first trio of matching shirts for me and my ma boys. Eeeek I love it!


My 3.5yr old Liam instantly wanted to wear his tee and began stripping, lol.

Gozer that purse is to die for. Love the unique fabric, handles and totally looks store bought!

The tiny armed octopus is friggin cute!

Ok, not familiar with that, so forgive me, but is that Necro--- an atc? Is it paper or clay to give it it's texture?

Its the "book of the dead" that comes alive from the comedy-horror film Army of Darkness with Bruce Campbell. I used crepe streamers to give it extra texture and used a vinyl strip for the book binding. Here's some more shots. It's not an atc, but rather a 5x7 box lid.
Glad you approved of it Audio!

I re-purposed this small box lid  for The Common swap into the notorious Necronomicon from the Army of Darkness. I just used crepe streamers to mold the face using mode podge, cut up and destressed a piece of pleather for the spine and hand painted the rest! Voila! It's just meant to be a wall plaque since my partner collects wall art.
Thoughts?

I received from my partner Audio today, check out the goods!
She crafted to our likes about owning multiple cats(we both have 2 solid greys), love for aliens and Pixar. She did a great job! My 4yr old actually claimed the pixar plaque right away lol.
 I scored one her creative custom necklace pendants, check out that cute lil guy!


Thank you again, can't wait for my box to arrive to you now!
