Since my husband is in the military we have moved away from many of your friends. One of my friends has been having a rough year and I wanted to be able to give her a hug. So I made her this and sent it out without telling her.

In addition to the rules/goals of the challenge I wanted to use more stash or personal items and do less shopping, so the blocks I used are actually mine from when I was a kid! The only things I ended up buying were the red paint and the glue. The short details: I spray painted all the blocks black, painted on the white and red details with acrylics, glued them around the frame, gave it a clear coat and inserted scrapbook paper into the frame (inserting the chocolates was the hardest, only because I wanted to eat them).

I made sure when I put it together that I did it right-side up so it could be used as either a small candy dish or as a picture frame.

My friend actually got it in the mail yesterday was was super surprised and happy! I love it when I can make someones day!

If anyone is interested in the how-tos of it I posted it in my blog: http://yellowhouseon3rd.blogspot.com/2012/02/random-acts-of-crafty-kindness.html

When I paint random things I use acrylic paints and then finish with a couple coats of clear spray. If you are going to paint things to go outside I recommended a UV clear coat (last time I found one was at a Home Depot)to prevent discoloration.

It's been awhile since I posted anything, but I have been busy. And congrats to the May challenge winner!

First off I reconed the half used comp notebooks that the kids brought home at the end of the school year:

Then I tried out a few different patterns for market bags:

One pillow case:

Two pillow case (from instructables website):

The market bag from Joann's website;

Group shot:

I think I like the two pillow case one the best, it was easy to make and works good for the thin pillow cases that I seem to have a bunch of.

I finished one of the three sets of name letters I'm making, the A was a pain to stuff, so thinking about changing the font:

And the top of a novelty fabric lap quilt for a friend's birthday (I plan on finishing it this weekend):

I took all those half used composition notebooks that the kids bring home from school at the end of the year and turned them into travel notebooks for our cross country trip.

For those of you that may not know what notebooks I'm talking about here's a before pic:

I kept two sets of covers and all the unused pages. And added to that some calender pages from last year and a ribbon. After spending lots of quality time with a hole punch, and a sore hand later, the final product:

Thanks for looking!

Love the crochet work!

First project of June is done. My hubby got me a DSI XL (bigger then reg DSI) for my birthday and being unable to find a case I liked I made one. Don't mind the lopsidedness, straight lines and I don't get along well, but I'm working on it!

All closed up outside:
