It's that time of year, where I head towards the mountains for 4 days of crafting. Woohooo!! I started pulling out things to pack last week; always afraid I"ll leave a key item. As of yesterday, I managed to unpack a few items I decided I just wouldn't work on. Ok, that and the fact that I'm riding with Lisa (a.k.a. Crop, Drop, N Roll) who brings the kitchen sink. Although, she told me that might not happen this year. LOL!! We'll see. I unpacked a ton of stuff between last night and this morning. I am so proud that I'm taking so little.
I wanted to post a project I completed last weekend. There are two craft items that scare me: (1) paint and (2) modge podge. I always have the hardest time with both. But, for the past 5 years I've been wanting to alter a breakfast tray and walking around ACM last week, a mini tray caught my attention and I thought, this is good, I'll start small and work my way up to a large tray. I did learn that I should probably print pictures on thinner paper. The pics I used were on photo paper. I decided I may tackle the larger tray for teacher appreciation week, by making a collage of the students in the tray and covering with that dreaded modge podge. Any tips you can offer:
OK, here's the project:
We made it to the land and I've finished unloading. While I was waiting for Lisa to pick me up, I had to finish a last minute project. That's a long story why it was last minute. It had something to do with gypsy update, cricut update (2 machines), and the unknown SCAL update I needed to do. Anyway, the 2nd graders are doing a wax museum tomorrow and my baby is Kobe Bryant. He already had the shorts, so I just had to do the shirt. I ran out of purple vinyl so I couldn't put the number on the front.
