This one is definitely a nutcracker, but it's in a magazine, so giving it a shot anyway!

2  Cricut Stencil Bridal Shower Gift in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: August 20, 2018 10:23:43 AM
Someone on a local Facebook group was looking for someone to make a custom stencil for her [for a bridal shower gift she wanted to give 3 days later! Cheesy].  I had some time one evening last week, so I gave it a whirl for her.

She mentioned wanting their names at the bottom, and I had always wanted to try the knockout method, so it gave me the push I needed to learn it.  I don't necessarily adore the Design Space interface (that's an understatement), so I did that part in Photoshop and just inserted it as an image in DS.

I covered it with transfer tape, so she could easily move it to her board.  She did all of the stenciling herself, but sent me photos from the shower yesterday.  It turned out so well!

8  Paint Wall / Art Wall in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: July 30, 2018 11:59:43 AM
I suppose this is more of an "ongoing project" rather than completed, but it shall do. Smiley  Our kids are always doodling and painting, so I wanted to give them a space to just create to their hearts' content.  We've had chalkboard walls in the past, but I wanted something a little different.

I wandered around our house looking for THE perfect wall, but nothing was quite clicking. Undecided  I didn't want them to have carpet at their feet with the paint pots & water in use, and I wanted them to be indoors (it gets HOT here in Phoenix summers!), but still have lots of natural light when at all possible.  And then I found it!  We walk by this big old canvas multiple times per day and just never truly saw it. Roll Eyes  It was perfect!  We have a two car garage, but only one car, so it was just space waiting to be loved.

Slapped on two coats of high gloss white paint and it was good to go.  Fortunately, with the aforementioned heat, paint here dries very quickly Cheesy so mr.sweets4ever and I painted after the kids went to sleep one night.  We set out the step stool, paints & water jars and let them discover it the next morning.

They've spent hourrrrs out there.  Painting, singing, dancing.  For now, during the summer, we just close the garage through the afternoon, so mornings & evenings are fresh air and natural light galore.  Once fall, winter & spring are upon us, the door can stay open all day/as they would like.

"The wall" is like a moth to a flame.  If you pass by it, it just calls to you. Cheesy  You feel the NEED to create.

And what a view when we pull into the garage.  That's quite a greeting. Smiley  And it's always changing!

I'm not even sure how the dinosaur got out there recently, but I like it. Cheesy

We moved to Phoenix, Arizona last year (one year ago this week, actually!) from Ohio.  The first guests that made the trek all the way out west to visit us were friends from our childhood in northeast Ohio.  We grew up just five miles from each other.  When they were here, we took them on their first little desert trail and found this lodged in the rocks at the top of the trail.  Here they were visiting from Ohio, and one of their sons was wearing a Ninja Turtle shirt, too, ha!  We couldn't believe it!  We ended up connecting with the rock's artist and found out it travelled from Willoughby, Ohio -- 2,030 miles.  Rock painting is so so fun.
