i hear strange noises coming from my television set. must be cartoon time. does arek ever get tired??? he is watching the powerpuff girls. i called them the powderpuff girls for the longest time. i was strangely dissapointed when i learned the truth.
i have been overwhelmed by glitter today….if glitter would stick to it, i glittered it!!! i finished out some of my projects and priced them for the booth. i have more trash to treasure ideas….cheap, fun, fast and easy!!! the heart necklace above as so simple. i glittered a cheap, plastic heart…glued a silver heart into it and painted it with a touch of pink paint. i wired and beaded the top and hung it on a piece of pretty ribbon. cheap, fun, easy and fast!! i made another, but zoey swiped it!! she’s still wearing it and sleeping like a puppy.
used some fine gitter to put on this metal wreath. i added a mill flower and some pink lace for hanging. drama and glitz. i also glittered some of those primitive hearts that hang on a string??? i will take some photos tomorrow. i have several small projects that i stuck in a basket for the booth……i will try to get photos tomorrow at the booth as well.
i finished out the chandie…this is the start and the finish below that……
i trashpicked this home interiors window from my neighbors trash can…..i mean i pulled it DIRECTLY out of her trash can….cars driving by me and all. no shame, i got game. anyway, it was too cute to toss but the panes are cheap plastic. one was a little cracked, so i altered them with these french book pages, old photos, a postcard, a cheap, brown tray i painted out and added an old book page to and a sweet, glittered set of wings cindy gave me. i like it better now. trash to treasure!
i am always thinking of new ways to alter those wood hangers. i found a ton of them overseas, but i only have a few left. i found this one today and totally covered it with glitter. i added this tea stained collar, stamped the word love directly on the fabric, added a pearl earring and some roses. i think it’s kinda of cute. quick, easy, cheap and fun….sounds like a bad night in vegas.
what is all of this foolishness???? does anybody else have like tins of this stuff just hanging around….completely unorganized and randomly put in a box on a shelf???? it’s the way i work. what can i say?
all priced and ready to go…..
okay…better take my cold sore lips (yes terry lee…another one!!!) and bad back into the living room to fish out arek. i miss the old days when he went to bed at 7:30 and i had the night to myself. not anymore!! between zoey fighting sleep and arek resisting bedtime, i am soooo tired by the time they actually fall asleep, i don’t want to alter anything, but the syrup i put on my ice cream….do i mix it with nuts, sprinkles or whipped cream???? whatever i do….i better not get too tired and sprinkle glitter by accident.
