Hey folks. Has the rain finally passed for you?
I'm finally able to look out and see the bright warm rays of sun glistening off what looks to be a jungle. All these warm rain has gotten me completely out of time my mowing schedule but it has not hindered the grass growing one bit.
Are you good at making the best of rainy days?
Sometimes I am and sometimes I become quite antsy.
When I become antsy there is no telling what kind of crazy project I'll come up with.
I have had paper stars on my mind for quite sometime and finally thought
I'd give this paper project a try.
First things first, I'm going to give you the link to the site that got my mind stuck on this project.
Go over to grey luster girl and check out her tutorial.
I started out by finding a star shaped cookie cuter. I traced it onto a cardboard box and cut them out.
and then glue them together. I was then going to run them onto some twine.
I had some brown glitter fingernail polish I painted over the stars and strung them and hung them.
Well it just looked weird and I thought I need a bigger star.
You would think I had some bigger cardboard I cut cut on but no.
So, second day I brought a few pieces home from work and we got to drawing and cutting.
Stars are hard to draw..but needless to say draw it, cut it out, and score it.
Score it along the point all the way across.
It will end up so that you can pinch it up and bend it down.
So, down to the basement to see what we can use.
After painting it black, the brown didn't show up.
So..back down the stairs..maybe grey spray paint could work this mess out.
Maybe brown on top of that....is this the way your projects go?
So, what do you do when you don't like it?
Add flowers..or something close to flowers.
Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about my plastic eagle.
That story really started a few months ago when I was looking around down at Larry's Variety
when I saw some iron eagles hanging sorta' high on the wall the lower one was really close to looking like the one that hung above my Grandma Hylton's door for ever.
I have told myself I would eventually find me one.
but you know cheap me....I couldn't go the money on that one and it was exactly the same
so when I was ready to pay Larry he asked," is that all?"
I said, "Well what about that $4 eagle hanging on the wall."
and he went and got the ladder and got it down for me.
When he brought it to the register it was plastic...eek...
but I didn't have the heart to tell him I wouldn't take it after he'd went to so much trouble to get it down.
So of course you know what I did!??
I put some gold fingernail polish to it and added some flower something or other.
The sun is still shining but the old man(husband) has come in from work and is informed me
my sun is not suppose to last for long.
I'd better get out there and mow that wet grass.
As always thanks for the visit.
p.s. Ann, please give me the heads up if you're going to visit I'll try to have
something with a kick to drink. It will help you enjoy my new decor so much better.
