First of all a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who went out and pinned (and favorited which was very kind as well) stuff from Etsy.
Etsy is going through a bunch of behind-the-scenes changes and it’s sort of messing with my views on there but I just have to show you something.
In other news.
My hinted at furniture project for Mod Podge Rocks is up and ready for review.
So, some background.
I come from a family of readers.
My grandfather had a full-fledged library in his basement complete with a card catalogue.
As a kid our pre-dinner ritual was to gather around the table and read a book aloud (this devolved eventually into just snacking and drinking martinis* which is an equally valuable use of time).
Some of my fondest memories are of my dad reading to me at bedtime and I still have the abridged Classic Tales books he used. (Of course, being a petulant and not particularly bright child, when I was mad at him I would REFUSE TO ALLOW HIM TO READ TO ME! and I’m sure he was like, “son, you’re an idiot. Go to bed”)
I was also one of those children whose mom had to say “I’m taking your book away and you are going outdoors!” on a semi-regular basis.
Anyway. Books. Good!
I love those moments.
Rare as they are……
I hope you enjoy the full tutorial and thanks so much again for all the support!
*just to be clear I was not allowed to drink martinis as a child. HOWEVER, as a child I thought I loved olives. But once, when offered one outside my loving home, I didn’t like it. So, in actuality, I didn’t love olives….I loved gin – namely the gin-soaked olives I would beg from my parents. This realization has helped explain a lot.
