1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Baseball card frame on: February 12, 2010 08:36:55 PM

Today while doing some spring cleaning in the basement I discovered this frame stashed in a drawer. The creative lightbulb went off shortly after and I grabbed a box of baseball cards and headed to the craft room.

A little Mod Podge later and I have a new Twins frame. Now to go through last summer's Twins game pictures to put in the frame!
I'm interested to see what my husband's reaction will be. He will probably freak out. But really, do we need thousands upon thousands of worthless cards? Anyway, these cards came from my collection. Now a thrift store trip is in my immediate future to find more frames  Grin

What a lucky girl! I wouldn't mind sleeping with Peyton every night Wink. Hope the Colts beat the Saints in the Super Bowl!

I had handwashed one earlier with no troubles. I was curious too about how they would hold up so later I was a little more "aggressive" with one. When I rubbed harder on the edges of the paint, it did come up. As long as I gently washed them and then immediately dried them, they seemed OK. I wonder how they will last over time.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Glass containers with chalkboard writing space on: January 25, 2010 09:52:04 AM
Over the holidays I saw drinking glasses at Pier 1 with a chalkboard square on them so people could put their names on their glasses. I was going to make some on my own, but this idea came about before I got to it. I was thinking of getting some glass containers for leftovers and getting rid of my tons of plastic containers and all the different lids that go with them. So I thought why not put a space on the glass containers to label what was inside and also date them. (We are always wondering if the leftovers in the fridge are still good).

My husband suggested I scuff up the glass with sandpaper since I wasn't sure if the chalkboard spray would hold. The spray I got also suggested the same thing with 220 grit sandpaper so I did scuff the area first.

Since doing these I've seen that red chalkboard paint is now available, which I think would have looked great on these. Plus my kitchen is decked out in cherries. Oh well, just another excuse for more crafting!

That is a great idea! I'd like a pair of the mittens for right now. Can't wait for the new stadium too. Go Twins!

Really cute! I love the idea about transferring onto the ribbons. Very clever.

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Super easy advent calendar on: December 15, 2009 12:58:25 PM
I saw this in a magazine last year, but can't recall which one. Not only was this super easy, but it was cheap too. I found the small gift bags at a thrift store for a quarter each. Then I made the stickers using Microsoft clipart online and some printable sticker paper. I tied each bag to a piece of cord which I tied onto a curtain rod in our dining room.

My son who loves the advent calendar. All he wants for Christmas is his two front teeth!

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Movie quote pillows on: December 05, 2009 09:35:53 PM
My sister is a big movie fan and I wanted to add something handmade to her movie themed Christmas present. After much thought, I decided to put a couple of movie quotes on pillow cases.

From Tommy Boy:

and a closeup:

And from the Odd Couple: (This one is at the top center of the pillow case).

Thanks for the comments. For the letters I had printed the letters off the computer and then pinned them on the felt like a pattern. I had tried to stencil the letters directly on the felt the first time, but that didn't work as well. Having the letters pinned on the felt really helped the second time around.
