Back in July when all of you were posting beach photos, I was posting Christmas Craft DIY photos here on my blog. Some of you thought I was crazy. In fact, a lot of you couldn’t believe I was posting Christmas ideas when it was ninety degrees outside! But now that it is almost December, can I tell you how happy I am that I have so many of these completed?
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.
