When I was going through my “Oh my gosh, I don’t have any fall décor” crisis a few weeks ago, I got a little carried away when ordering pumpkins online. I also hadn’t selected my color scheme, which was a really dumb thing to do before ordering a bunch of pumpkins.
When I teach my painting workshops, each of my students gets an apron embroidered with their name on it. I used to spend $12 on each apron to have them embroidered. Since I taught 12 – 14 workshops a year, I finally figured out that it would be much cheaper if I embroidered them myself.
Now that the project room is finished (well, kind of), it is time for my first project. One thing I have been wanting to do for a long time is to figure out to use my Silhouette Cameo machine. The Silhouette was a wonderful Christmas present from my husband and I just hadn’t blocked out the time to figure out what to make and how to make it. The time is finally here.
A few years back I saw a photo in a magazine of a headboard made from an old door. I loved it and knew some day I would make one for our master bedroom.
I decided the hanging shelves would look great with some small pots and plants. I found these terra cotta pots at Home Depot for $1.29 but knew they needed some TLC. I am not a fan of the bright orange color (as seen above on the left). I have also never “aged” terracotta pots before but knew I wanted them to actually “look old”, not look like they were “painted to look old”.
