The week is flying by fast, and I'll be drawing a winner tomorrow for the giveaway, so if you having already ... you still can here in Mondays post.
I've been having some fun creating with goodies from the new Crafty Secrets CD "Creating with Vintage Typography" that will be released soon.UPDATE: CD HAS BEEN RELEASE and is available HERE So many awesome things on this CD. You're going to love it. And check out the really cool bust Sandy made. here.
I wanted to show you a lamp shade I've been working on. Click to see it larger, and you'll be able to see the printed Ad paper from the CD that I used. I just punched circles and layered them, starting from the bottom and working my way up. I tried to attach them towards the top of each row of circles so that the bottoms could sort of curl up. I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power tape around the base of the shade to get me stared, and then I used Small Dodz to add the other circles. It came together pretty quickly actually. Adding thread to all the buttons I added for trim, probably took the most time. lol I always need thread in my buttons... lol I've tried to go without.. but just cant. I know .. weird :)
It was a thrift store lamp, so the project was inexpensive. Since I had never done it before and wasn't sure how it would come together, or if it would turn out, I wasn't going to spend allot of money, but it was much easier than I thought and I think it turned out kind of cute :)
CD available now HERE
We have been having thunderstorms the last two night... so little miss Molly has been keeping me up.
She really isn't even sure about wanting to go out in the morning. And once she's there she sometimes just sits and listens.... like she's afraid she's going to here rumbling in the distance.
I'm hoping for clear skies to night. I need to get some sleep:)
