Story Of A Chair

There's this chair now

And it was like this, on the side of the road, alone.

The chair was given to me from a friend of mine. I knew it can be a lot happier place to sit on than what it was. So here it goes the transformation of this one brown and ordinary chair.

Happy Green Bookshelf Tutorial

I bought this bookshelf two years ago for $8. It sat in the "Store For Old Furniture"(the basement as my hubby calls it), looking like this:

In my head it was done and beautiful from the moment I saw it. Most of my projects are played, replayed and finished in my head many times and long before I grab the sander and the paintbrush.

Jar Pin Up Cushion

Since I've started posting about my crazy sleepless crafting sewing nights, I've inspired people around me to  buy a sewing machine and try their luck in making something . Makes me smile.

I started sewing because I had to fix my pants, I'm 5ft 2in tall(or should I say short) so I learned how to sew on my mom's sewing machine , reading the manual.
So, to say thank you to all my dear friends who share my passion I made and gave away Jar Pin Up Cushions.

Valentine Sweet Tooth Wreath

I made one...

and I love it!!!
Now, I had to put this one way up high because my 3yr old doesn't understand why would I waste so many candies. Neither do I.

This wreath is definitely for inside. The sweet corn is way to soft and fragile to be put outside.

The Process:

Mod Podge Horseshoes Crafty Joy

Have you heard about Mod Podge?
It's this glue like stuff you can put on fabric or paper that dries clear making a protective, durable coat(when used on top of the paper or fabric) and it's super easy and fun to work with.
Here is what I made using Mod Podge:

This project is part of many projects for a Western Cowgirl B-day party I plan on this coming March.
My little girl is turning three and she is in love with horses and ponies. So I came up with the idea to decorate horseshoes for the party. And they turned out beautiful:
