Hello, Happy Sunday, and Welcome to the Farm! This is the strangest time of year for me...kind of warm during the day but cold at night. I just never know how to dress; wish I could stay in my jammies all day. There's just nothing better than jammies...and hot chai tea...and a nice comfy blankie...and a good day in the craft room. Ahhhh, my favorite kind of day!
I've had a lot of those jammie days over the last couple of months (minus the crafting part) and, while laying around looking pitiful between naps, have had the time to think about projects I would like to work on. Of course, there haven't been very many done, but I'm trying to rectify that now. :)
Recently, I received a WONDULOUS (wonder and fabulous combined to form a really cool new word here!) Halloween goody box from Margaret, a fellow Two Peas swapper. Oh my gosh, I cannot BEGIN to tell you everything that was in that box, but suffice it to say I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it all! As a small and personal "thank you" to Margaret, I have crafted this "BOO" saying for her. It isn't much compared to all the funderful (fun and wonderful combined to form another really cool new word here!) things I received from her, but I made it specifically with Margaret in mind and it comes from my heart of hearts. I truly hope she likes it! There's just nothing like receiving heart-made (heartfelt and hand-made combined to, you got it, make another really cool word here!) gifts to make your day just a little better!
This particular craft gift was relatively simple to do, but did take time for the paint and Mod Podge to dry. Basically, I took raw wooden letters and painted them; adhered pattern paper with Mod Podge; sanded and inked the edges; applied Mod Podge over the top to protect from dampness; and adhered medallions and buttons.
Fun, colorful, Halloweeny, and I did most of it while in my jammies. Try it!
