My most recent projects
Using my stuffHi Everyone! If you want to feature my original work and use it on your site, I would be very flattered, but I ask you to give me a little credit first!
Check me out on Pinterest!
Ok so I have to admit, I cheated on this one…I actually got the letters from Michaels crafts in the clearance section however they needed something more! That is where this post comes in to play….
I purchased the letters…
I wanted something to tie them together and so I went into our garage and found some left over wood. I cut the pieces into a plus shape. A + B….
I wanted the distress of the other letters to match, so I took some black paint and water and did a wash on the wood. Then I took some blue chalk and lightly covered the surface to give it some more color.
and there you have it!
Since January, I have been blessed with lots of paint parties. I love every second of this growing business and I thank you all for the support… If you are interested in booking a party, let me know!

What I am painting currently:
My craigslist nightstand…more on that next week!
Good morning everyone…I wanted to show off a little piece of art that I had made a few weeks ago. It was simple and looks pretty cool!
So how did I do it…
I printed off a template of a state that I wanted to cut out ( this case being Oregon…)
I drew the picture of the state on MDF…this is wood leftover from a previous project my husband and I did!
I took a jig-saw to the wood and cut out the state.
Of-course it wasn’t perfect, so I sanded the edges!
When I was done sanding the edges, I stained the front of the state and added some paint to the edges.
I finished it off by adding some twine to the back of it as a hanger!
If you are curious as to how I made the art piece above the cut out state go here.
I had a friend who was carry around this bag at soccer, and I asked her if I could have it. Being that my youngest daughter’s name is Lucille, I had to have this bag! ha ha
I took it home and cut it out to the size of a small painted canvas. I then adhered the cutout bag to the canvas with glue. Once the glue was dry, I painted to layers of Modge Podge to the canvas.
