I grabbed some .99 vases from the local thrift storeDownloaded some stern looking Victoriansand BAM! a two-fer. One glowey eyed centerpiece for me. One new Mod Podge Rocks Project for Amy! It was fun to put together, took about two hours (drying time mostly) and cost almost nothing – just what I was hoping for. If you’d like to see the full tutorial head on over to Mod Podge Rocks for the details.
Actually I should amend that. It took two hours to put together and then about three hours and six stores to find anything to put around it (I ended up with that green, licheny stuff) because it seems every store has moved on to Christmas. Argh!!!!! My new goal is to open the “You’ve Procrastinated and We’re Right With You” store – where holidays are in synch with the actual calendar.
In other news you may remember I was gearing up to do the a Halloween Window for one of my favorite local shops – CoOp 28.
Well, unfortunately, there was a scheduling mishap (not mine but I can understand why your mind would go there) and it didn’t happen. So I’ve contented myself with Halloweening out my table a bit.Usually I’m very regimented and linear with my displays but this time I tried mixing it up a bit just to see if that might appeal.We’ll see as the holiday approaches if I have snagged any fellow procrastinators or if the Halloween crowd is really just so together that they’ve already done all their shopping.
Meanwhile on to
Thanksgiving!…. Christmas!!!?…..no?…..Ah! New Years! There we go – now I’m up to speed. Happy New Year!
