Hello everyone, a very busy day at my house, up and got daughter off and then me off to the Gym, I got my strenghtening in but blew off my Cardio hoping to get a long walk in but that did not happen. Anyways Craft store, the Pharmacy, the Grocery store and the to start my project and my cooking. I have to warn you, I am in a very chatty mood tonight, so expect some long winded-ness, it that a word? I'm using it any ways. Above is a photo of my sister, actually both are my sisters but this is about the one without her head cut off. I am not born yet so can't show you that. She is celebrating a milestone birthday on Saturday and she has got us all working. I am making a dozen of these mini-pictures to as a surprise to decorate her party with, I actually have 6 different photos or two of each one. I thought, silly me that it would not take that long but I clocked it and between watching the stove and hunting for the items my cat stole - 4 hours!! I know...and I know you must know too as to where does my time go?
This is the not so fun stuff you gotta use, my Beacon 3 and 1 glue that a dear craft friend recommended to me and my circle cutting system by Creative Memories, it is a very old system but it serves me well. I also used this chipboard for the backing of the photos. You can see my black cat Joey (Joey is a girl) already starting to steal my stuff and yes, she did run off with the green circle cutter.
The funner stuff here, (is funner a word?) I got those photos printed at the photo shop and then my craft store purchase which is some green paper, (her colors of her party, I didn't just make ALL this stuff up, you know!) dollies, green and off-white ribbon and some 'brides' embossed paper flowers, they actually say they are confetti but I have always liked them a lot and so I picked them up. The only thing is you get a TON of them - all in the same color and I wish that they would sell them in a multi colored pack as they have other colors. I really like the container too, can you say ** altered ** container project. These pictures here show my three older sisters, each treasures in their own right.
They are going to look something like this, I still need to add my ribbons and I decided to add some of my dew drops as the flower centers, I have alot of different colors of those so I am off to get these from my craft room, Joey is going to love these.
There is my helper, she HAS to be sitting on my chip board. I do have two cats but Charlie is sleeping and she is not as nosey as Joey is. I am actually working on the kitchen table to watch my stove as I am preparing my assigned items. I don't get to decide what I am doing, my sister is telling me what to do and HOW to do it so since it is all about her I am doing it her way. AND really my craft room is WAY to messy to actually work in there anyways and that is on my things to-do list. Can you believe my husband came home while the dishes were stacking up and me crafting and he YES, washed ALL the dishes for me. I think we finished at the same time, it worked for me!
This is one of the end projects and it is sideways, But I think I got the top of this blog post picture right. Yes, my sister has huge brown eyes. SO happy birthday my dear sister. Stay tuned, I will be toting my camera to her Par-tee - expect to see linen, and china and wine and song. I hope I have not bored you to death, LOL but another early and full day tomorrow and then a sit down dinner for 75 and a day/night of fun on Saturday, an overnighter and then clean-up (I can only imagine).
