No not painted with that awesome paint, I'm going to tell you all about soon.
But boy do I wish it had been.
An old Printers tray displaying my Favorite and still used wood mounted stamps.
These can be found everywhere. *Up-Date Negotiations are in the works for the shop, I'm going to go it alone and the instructions for the binder is done, but Dummy me gave it away and did not get a final Pic, but you will get the idea and I finally made an in color template for the marker cases. I though the retired (fill in the circles) case would do the work because of the yearly changes for those, but many have requested it, that will be up soon also.
A little late but none the less...done for you.
Hi Y'all ...today I did a little Bucket List Scratching, but only a partial scratch.
I'm on pins and Needles, this will be a big decision...
I'm going to open a hand-made shop, hopefully with some co-owners.
I've looked at two Spaces so far well 3 but that was to scary to even mention to my co-owners...
Pray, cross-fingers, or wish us luck!
I've envision for so long...
walking into a cozy room filled with Handmade and Up-Cycled, some place you can sit down kick your feet up and just gaze at all the Handmade Beauty...AWE!
With a little room for classes of all Handmade type teaching, crafty artists so good at what they do to teach me and others felting, or the art of glass making, new and old techniques of all crafts. With lots of people buying the Home-made Beauties and signing up for those classes...
OK I will get back to reality, Let happen, Happen!
The adorable chippy shelf, yep made it that way on purpose
with that awesome paint I will talk more in detail about soon, houses all my buttons assorted by color in jars, with the lids painted, my Favorite color....GREEN!
Now they are not just plain jars, they are Organized Pretty!
First go check out This Old Post and the Big Honking Plastic table, I was always cleaning.
That table became the catch-all for everything.
Found...curbside a coffee table I really liked the legs on (show you what I did with those later)
I still had the top...
Bam...it dawned on me this table top was the most perfect size, not a Big Honking Thing.
Sent Hubby to the store to get some fence posts, and he even had them cut into 3 feet lengths.
Used the old hardware (screws and bolts)
and I have a new Counter height Table. I'm short...
I went to Habitat and just bought wood pieces that were the same depth, length did not matter as long as they were longer than the shelf I planned. This is where the Hubbies mind changed about my hoarding, he took over. Which was fine by me, I still asked for my own power tools for X-mas, he even found lite and cordless.
But after the accident I had earlier last year with a tree and a pole saw, all new safety equipment came with it.
There's more to the Hubby/Hoarding story....Stay Tuned.
I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint this color is called Old Paint-no wax, I call it the Lazy "wo"mans paint and have several colors, tell you more of that later, cause there is a lot to talk about.t
The little hardware thingy on the sides hold trash collection bags and such.
It's the perfect height for cutting Fabric, paper and well...everything else, with-out to many aches;)
This also Houses my Big Shot Machine and Dies.
An Old wine rack that fits my long dies and...
A Big Beautiful Fabric Box (TJ Maxx) with a lid that hides the rest.
Soon I hope this table will also house an E-clips or Silhouette! I'll find a way to store that pretty too.
Who has tried Extreme Couponing... raise your hand!...me.
And not to successfully at it either.
Well anyways, I do love the Binder covers floating around all over Cyber and Grocery Worlds...
Funny thing is, I've had Pinterest Like Binders forever...LOVE PINTEREST!
If you do not know what Pinterest is, there is a little Pinterest link to the right, click, BUT be prepared!
So many awesome ideas all in an easy to find location, no more Bookmarking!
So for my Binders..This is the first cover using one of SU's Fabulous Fabrics and I totally winged it, to cheap to buy a pattern and a somewhat alright sewer to try it on my own and surprisingly my measurements worked...
slowly have been working on a 3 inch binder pattern, this is a 1 1/2in and I will share...
Just bare with my busy schedule please.
Inside I have tabs of Style, Food, Ideas, Health....
Tabs of each part of my house and dreams of what I want it to look like on Graph Paper, with colors and new products and accessories (of coarse these change as each year goes by)
I have pages of plain white card stock with loads of pics from Magazines I love to read. I just cut out the parts that really catch my eye and glue them.
And a couple of pockets to hold my much loved Sticky notes and more.
Ive had this portable Pinterest for ever ...
Now it's just Organized Pretty!
For me I will forget the coupons, I seem to anyways!
These were suppose to be last years X-mas gifts, some were packaged prettily and given, the others, 20 bottles in all still sit waiting to be beautified. Actually the longer they sit the better, receipt...
3 Vanilla Beans to 1/2 cup of your Best Vodka Slice beans open, I recommend you chop in fourths so vodka always covers the beans (exposed to air they will mold) Let sit in dark place 4 to 6 months before use.
I get my Beans from My Spice Sage plus they send you a free sample and their prices were perfect!
Yep after a long long hiatus from blogging. I am coming back to show you crafty stuff.
All crafts blend and mesh nicely. I'm not a "stick to one thing kinda gal". I love to change it up...a lot!
Changes happen everyday, sometimes the best changes start with yourself...
exposing yourself to "Happy" is a great start.
Prepare Yourselves...and Thank You for sticking around!
Makes me Happy, going to return the Favor!
