Just a Crafty, Thrifty Girl!
I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was going to share a little project I made. I love to create and design on the computer. I found an inspiration piece with this scripture on Pinterest and loved it. I was playing around on PicMonkey and designed one for myself. I liked it as it was, but I decided I wanted to make another one and glitter the anchor. So, that's what I am sharing with you today.
Here is the piece printed out and ready for some glue & glitter.
Here it is after I glittered the first part. I worked in small sections so the glue wouldn't dry before I could glitter it. I used plain old Elmer's school glue.
Here is a section covered in glue. I got a little glitter mixed in when I brushed near the section I had already glittered.
Here it is all glittered. I am loving gold lately so I chose it for my anchor.
You may have noticed this empty clipboard hanging above my desk in yesterday's craft room post.
It needed a little something on it. I have seen people using these like frames on the Internet and thought I would give it a try. Easy to change! I am planning to make more scripture and quote posters and change them out every couple weeks. Good excuse to get to play on the computer and play with glitter!
I also wanted to share two thrifty finds from the weekend. First up is this gorgeous old mirror. I absolutely love the shape and detailing on this mirror. I have plans to sand it, repaint it, add a shelf to the bottom, and turn the mirror into a chalk board. Can't decide what color though....
It's pretty big...probably around 3 feet high and 2 feet wide. I have been slowly trying to replace things on my walls with things I have thrifted and redone as well as things I make. This is going to be perfect in my dining room.
I also bought this sweet little napkin holder.
I am using it in my craft room on my desk to hold post it notes though.
It is really pretty.
Working on crafty things is such a release for me. I am able to just forget about things for a while and let my mind become totally focused on the task I am trying to accomplish.
It is good for my soul...:)
I am off to try to catch up on replying to my comments. I'm sorry if you don't always hear back from me. Sometimes it is because I get behind and just have no time to catch up and other times it is because some of you are no reply commenters and I don't always make it back to the blog to reply. I so enjoy reading each of your comments though. They are always a bright spot in my day...:)
Have a happy Wednesday everyone.
Until next time.....
