When I’m in my craft room, I have a tendency to lose track of time. There have been times when I’ve become so engrossed in a project that I’ve watched the sun come up. One of the last times I did that, I realized that I needed a clock in there. But, knowing me, I couldn’t just buy a clock… I had to make one.
Here’s the latest project for my craft room. A DIY Canvas clock… With Bling.
In my New Year Tablescape, I used this Diamond Candle Ring as the centerpiece. It was very easy to make and can be used any time of the year. I love the way it sparkles whether it’s from sunlight or candle light.
It never fails, when I need a tissue, they’re in the other room. And they’re always hidden under a tissue box cover because I can’t stand the patterns that are on those boxes. The craft room is no exception. Since I’ve been working on redoing the craft room, (that’s a whole story in itself that I’ll tell when it’s completed) I decided to make something pretty to hold the tissues. This could be used in any room & done in any color of your choice.
I’m a ‘girly’ girl and I like feminine clothes. I love getting dressed up to go out with my hubby. But for shopping, around the house, picnics and work, I like T-Shirts. They’re comfortable & easy to take care of. But when I buy my T-Shirts, I buy Men’s. Why? Women’s T-Shirts are cut wider & shorter than the Men’s shirts. I like my shirts to cover my bum. And the sleeves on a women’s T Shirt are very short. I don’t do sun very well, so I like my arms covered. But, like I said, I’m a girly girl. How do I combine the two? Yep, you guessed it. Glitter! Besides, what girl doesn’t like a little ‘bling’?
I was shopping for T-Shirts for my hubby, when I found this T-Shirt for me! It’s a nice shirt, very patriotic for all of the holidays in the summer, but I didn’t necessarily want it to look like it came from the men’s department.
I washed & dried the shirt, without adding any fabric softener, so that the fabric glitter would adhere better.
When I’m putting together a tablescape, one of the items that I love to use is table scatter, or flat back marbles. It always adds a little ‘bling’ to the table & helps to bring more of the chosen color towards the center of the table.
But what if I can’t find or don’t have the color I want? I make my own. It’s easy to do and with the colors of paints available, you can have your table scatter match any table.
