Still Craftin'

I'm slowly making my way through that project list, finally! The transfer paper i squirrelled away came in handy when making these postcard sachets. I love this stuff! I scanned and enlarged my vintage postcards, printed the images onto the transfer paper and ironed them onto some linen. Trimmed, stuffed with scented plastic pellets, embellished and sewed 'em up!
These are those .99¢cardboard boxes from Michael's covered with scrap paper, Mod Podge and a few cuties.

I painted the inside of this little picture frame with chalkboard paint and smooched on a bunch of paper flowers.

Here are a couple more stamped burlap pillows. 'His' and 'Hers' just to keep things straight!

This photo book uses two small canvases for it's front and back covers. More Mod Podge and sheet music inked with sepia ink...
untied it has room for six photos!
Now it's time to decide whether or not to open an Etsy shop. I've played with the idea for quite a while...i just can't take the plunge. Yikes! Even saying it out loud is just a little scary. What if no one likes my junk like i like my junk! Big.Scary.Thought. Any hoo...

The week wouldn't be complete without some treasures! Found these rosy tea cups ...

and this cozy chenille throw, perfect for the hammock! Ahh, i miss the hammock.

We've had some beautifully mild weather this week, highly unusual for March in Michigan. I can't wait to get out and see what's poking up through the soil. I am a little worried to see what the puppy has been doing to our new tree's...she always seems to find an endless supply of sticks to play with. Oy!

How was your day?


  1. Okay, I've said it once, I'll say it again... you need to sell this stuff! Beautiful, beautiful crafties!

  2. Ooo...lots of pretties! Love that frame painted in with chalkboard paint...I just might have to try that! Great share! :>


What's on your mind?
