Rainy day crafts

Today it's been raining and dark and dreary (and CD3 ain't doing much for me either).

Which means, in order for me to keep sane, I worked on some crafts.

First, I bought a really fancy gold frame from the thrift store for about a buck and I've wanted to put this one quote, that I fell in love with, in it to go by the front door. I forgot to take a before picture but I did snap one of the back side, mid-painting, to show the gold in all it's glory...




And then I painted, cut up scrap book paper and wrote the sweet quote...



The only thing was that I wanted it by the front door but I had green flowers on my homemade coffee filter wreath that I made back in November. Since that wreath was a doozy to make, I did it with the intention of changing out the little decorations on it to go with the season. And well, I didn't have any fun blue or red flowers to go on it, so that the front hall flows with my new picture frame, SO I made two paper flowers...



Another view:



Also, yesterday was my SIL's birthday and I wanted to make something simple (pun intended) that she could hang in her apartment. All I did was paint a board I had, mod podge some scrapbook paper and then stamp out the word...



And lastly, even though I didn't make it...I'm certainly enjoying this while I'm watching the Rangers and hoping they can beat the Phillies...


Cheers!
