creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

A bit of craft fun!

I purchased a new camera this weekend from my sweet friend, Michelle.  I feel a bit lost but I’m working my way through with the simplest of shots…along with some fun craftiness.

crafty fun!

We picked up these paper mache’ boxes at a garage sale Sat. morning and were just itching to make something.  With our craft project, it was fun to put to use a couple of the suggestions that I’ve picked up from Diane recently.  Her recipe for decoupage is equal parts of wallpaper border paste and Elmer’s glue.  I really like how that worked.  The other thing she uses on practically everything is Minwax brown paste wax, which I used on my box.  It gives your project a finished, aged look.

And then…we had too much fun @ Barnes & Noble.

????It just didn’t seem right for this book to be in ‘Religious’ section so we moved it…a little.
