Yesterday I wanted to show you a little of what I had done with my days off. For some reason I was getting an error message when I tried to upload the photos.
So here we go today.
I was in a bit of a crafty mood. If you've been following my blog awhile, you may remember me showing you the frosting containers that I was decorating to use as Christmas presents. Well I did a few of those. I also added coffee cans (the red and green Folgers plastic ones) to the list of things I was saving.
I don't have an actual table or anything to work on. All my craft stuff is pretty much stashed in my computer room. So I got out all my junk and spread it out on the floor and started playing. Here's my mess. I did tidy up just a bit before I took the picture.
So far I've done 7 of the frosting containers. I'll use these to hold either home made candy or maybe some cocoa mix. Or something else, not quite sure yet.
This is a picture of one of the coffee containers. Since it's already green it was pretty easy to do. Just add some fancy ribbon and make a fancy bow for the top. The lid was black which I didn't care for so I painted that with gold metallic paint. The other thing in the picture is a leftover ceramic tile I had from when we did our kitchen floor years ago. I cut up some old Christmas cards and then decoupaged them on to the tile. I'm working on another one of those right now.
Well that was my creative spurt while I was off.
First day back today was a killer. I'm beat....lol
