I needed something on my shelf...something that didn't remind me of the cold, snowy winter that is still with us here in New York! So in an effort to change things up a bit, I decided to reuse bottles I had been saving! I knew that they would make the perfect decoration some day...(my rationale for keeping them). :)
These are those cute little French Vanilla Cappuccino bottles that come 4 in a pack...don't ask me where the 4th one is... ;) After peeling off the label...I just poured some off-white paint on the inside, swirled it around...slowly turning the bottle making sure all parts of the glass was covered and let it dry. I found some larger rub on transfers from my scrapbooking stash...cut some cute coordinated ribbon...and there ya have it! Sooooo easy...and simple!
So here's proof to my hubby that it is OK to hold on to things...to re-use...re-purpose... and
Did you ever have a spot in your house where you know you can go just to "get away from it all?" And NO...I'm not talking about the bathroom!!!!!! :) My little "corner" is here...
I love this spot...especially when it is sunny and warm!!! I also love the pictures of my kids...a promotional special I came across a while back from the canvaspeople.com! BEST canvas picture company ever!!!!! :) These 81/2 x 11 pictures cost me nothing but shipping and handling...PRICELESS !!!!!! :)
I haven't had the chance to post as I've been suffering from a terrible sinus infection for the past 7 days! It really took it's tole and knocked me right on my...well you know where! :) Of course, my timing was just impeccable ~ my 2 day "mini vacation" (kids and hubby away at the water park) was spent on the couch! :( Oh and I had such BIG plans!!!! So now I hope to play catch up and get some crafty projects started...and finished! Pictures to come soon! My first project will be to bring some SPRING into the house...do you think it's too early??!!??
Here goes nothing...I've always wanted to start a blog...so here I am! Nothing like jumping in head first. I asked myself...what am I looking to do with my blog...who will be interested and more importantly, what message am I really trying to send? I hope to discover these answers as I move along in unfamiliar territory, day by day...taking a risk in trying something new! I hope you will join me on my journey...or at least stop by every so often to let me know how I am doing! (wink wink) :)
