Haha, looking at the swap questionnaires, everyone but me lives in the same state!  Two of you even live in the same city!!  Looks like we're all mostly army too!

Still hoping to get more people, 9 days left of signups! Smiley

If it's my city that would be exciting since I know NO ONE here and NEED friends Wink

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Wall Letters :) on: December 14, 2007 04:18:52 PM
Using thankyoulocust's WONDERFUL tutorial I completed these in about 2 hours or less last night for the 2 year old's room:

Which will be going in that glaring blank spot above her bed you see here:

Now keep in mind I am a complete crafting idiot most times with anything non-crocheted, so there were some issues I had.  And for those that are like me, I present:

Things I Learned The Hard Way

It is near impossible to find any scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby that has butterflies on it.  Or any combination of yellow/purple on the same paper.  You can, however, still find plenty of Halloween scrapbook paper in the middle of December.  Good to know.

Really, really, REALLY take your time laying down the paper on the letter after you modge podge.  That stuff sticks well, air bubbles love to pop up on curvy letters (such as S's) and you after spending 20 minutes trying to coax the paper up slowly and/or somehow smooth out the now present air bubble, you will start berating your husband over his choice of children's names and how many "S's" are in them.  Then you will attempt to mask the air bubbles with painted circles (See the first "S" in picture)

When smoothing down the edges with your finger .. don't run it speedily across the edge thinking it will save time.  You will give yourself one heck of a paper cut and spend the next two hours whining about it to anyone that will listen, including the cats.

Rub-on ANYTHING is the devil.  Especially "stickers".

When they tell you to use the acrylic sealing spray in a well-ventilated area .. they're not kidding.

Good luck! Cheesy
