I've been wanting to have the chance to spend some time in the clean craft room but the new job and house work has kept me busy. I managed to get up super early yesterday and drag out a few supplies and start on a heritage album:
I spent most of my time sitting there "thinking" about what to do and not really doing! (Don't you ahet that?) But at least I got some creative time in. I also remembered that I haven't shared the latest Victorian Lady I finished up a few weeks ago and quickly snapped some pictures:
It really is much cuter then this photo lets on! I used a fan ornament I found at the thrift store, some vintage photos I printed from here and some great silver leaves that Shara sent me some time ago. I actually started it back when I made this ornament I made two years ago:
You can see the original post here. Oh yes, TWO YEARS it's been sitting in pieces waiting to be finished. Oh how I procrastinate lol. However, I'm glad the pair is done! I think they are so cute and I keep them in little shadow boxes I found on clearance forever ago:
Cute, right? So as you can imagine I put the heritage album stuff away and drug out my files of Victorian ladies and started on some Halloween witches. Hopefully they will be finished by October 2012. ;) I'll share those soon! Has any one else started on fall crafts yet?
Please stop by and read my latest article on refinishing flea market furniture. I have an expert guest who gives great tips on stripping off and repainting the pieces. This is the first post where I feature that expert who happens to be my dad! So please visit and see what he has to say. You won't be sorry! :)
