I think I'm hurting for blog material

All y'all have gotten lately is crafty stuff. But why stop now!?

Here are a few before and after shots from the last week.

Kelly knows how much I like to monogram, so for Christmas, she bought me like 200 different H's. Okay, maybe only about 15. Here are some ways I've used them.

I'm loving me some Mod Podge!

These were the 12x12 wooden blocks I got for $0.50 each.
I added some scrapbook paper, some ribbon and an H.

You can't tell, but the block on top has textured
scrapbook paper on it, it's not just black.

Remember this ugggggly mirror?

Now it's a nice "check-your-teeth-before-you-answer-the-door" mirror.

Anyone else have any crafty goodness they want to share? Leave a link in the comments!

How did you do the letter H with the ribbon. I love that.. I must copy, and I will give you some credit... if mine turned out good enough to show!

Ok, if I ever get into a house I can call my own, could you just come down and do all this decorating stuff for me???? You are AMAZING!

Jodie Huse said...

You are certainly amazing me!!!
I love each item.....hint, hint....all the Huse's would love a H for next Christmas. haha.

I have some frames that need to be sprayed and used. What an great idea. Also, I have a stool in the bathroom that has never been covered.....now, I must do it before you come.

I just love reading your blog, you tickle me to death.

What?!??!! I love that you are blogging craft stuff in relation to your new home.

I have resorted to blogging about American Idol! Talk about last resorts!

Rachel @ Unexpected Blessings said...

You remind me of an old family saying we used to use at our Christmas White Elephant exchange... "A little spray-paint and that would look really nice!"

Love the H!
