Time to slow down on my sewing/craft projects. I'll still be doing them just not as fast. School starts tomorrow and I'll be extremely tired the first week or two. After that I'm sure I'll get back in the swing of things. My craft binder has plenty of tutorials and ideas to keep me busy since I have no children at home anymore.
One last project I wanted to get done before the school year began. I wanted my girls to have a place to hang their car keys like they did here at home. Their house is so big and I know that if they put them down somewhere they could lose them. So I found this unfinished plaque at Wal-Mart for $4 and knew exactly what I wanted to do to finish it.
I first painted it blue but it was too blue grey for my liking...so I went over it with white and immediately wiped it off with a paper towel. I liked that color better and the look was nice. I found a picture of sparrows and printed it out. Then I decoupaged it onto the plaque.
Voila!! It came out so cute! It matches my girls perfectly.
Here is a close up. I can see this hanging on Meg's side of the room by the back door.
Speaking of Meg, she and her roomie Bri (bri is a supervisor at the camp) came by today to pick her dog up that I was watching for the weekend. They stayed for dinner...I made steak and potatoes. I also made Carmel Swirl Brownies for them to take back to their house.
First week of being empty nester's and both our girls have visited us. I love that!!!
