Happy Labor Day to you all! I hope it is going well for you all. As I promised I wanted to have a give-away in celebration of my article in Artful Blogging. A lot of you suggested some type of banner. Soooo me being a bit indecisive.....I decided to make two different types ...so instead of one person winning....I will randomly select two chicks. So I made two banners.....one spelling out CHERRIES....and the other spelling NEST. Hopefully one of the two will call to you, they are done up flashcard style. The nest one I made kinda 3-d by using some brown cut up paper and used two oval pearls as the eggs. The cherries has two vintage spools on the ends and a stamped cherry in the middle. Both are heavily distressed .....I will keep this post open for a week....PLEASE ONLY COMMENT TO THIS POST IF YOU WOULD LIKE A CHANCE TO WIN. As per last give-away....if you would like your name thrown in more than once you can post this give-away on your blog....please let me know that you are doing so...ON THIS POST in comment section. Ok on to the project!
I finally got this other little project done...I saw it in a magazine...it was one of those....WHY didn't I think of that moments. I took a book....(this is really hard for me...I hate altering books.....it gives me heart palpations....LOVE them so much and feel guilty.) This one was ok.....NOTHING special....I sprayed it black...and than went to work fashioning it into a hanging Halloween "sign". I distressed the edges like you would furniture and added some inks..fashioned a rosette....added some buttons....and just had a grand old time giving it some charm. I picked out some ribbons and just nestled it between the middle pages of the book and tied a ribbon at the top. This was easy, simple, cheap, and fun! Would love to see one of you give it try! If you do please share.
Last but hopefully not least....this little guy whispered in my ear he would like to go home with one of you.....he is over yonder in my etsy store. I just added him...there are 3 Halloween items left over there.....I will be making a few more items...please let me know if there is something special or custom you would like me to make....it is JUST around the corner. Have a wonderful evening! Be sure that I am slowly making my rounds and visiting all of you. Xoxo, cherry
