Getting Ready for Projects

I hit a couple of craft stores to get materials for my Girlfriends Getaway Keepsakes Etsy shop.  I have a few more items to get and then I will become a craftin' fool.  I hope to get the shop opened sometime next month.

Getting Veggie Garden Ready

To see if I can successfully grow a veggie and herb garden, I decided to use items found in our yard after buying a house.  If I can manage to not kill the plants and have edible food, I will redo the area.  I like the look of barrels and may change to those instead of the long plastic planters found in our yard.  I am also using an old patio table to elevate them.  I haven't decided on what to do with the area framed in wood, but I am sure I will figure it out when it comes time to plant.

Wine Bar with Antiques

I found the sign, rake and metal object at an antique mall.  I took each item and made them into my wine bar.  I like the end result.

Girlfriend's Getway Gals

I have finished the four different silhouettes of the girls I will be putting in my book and shops.  I am working on a convertible to put with them in one picture.  The shops and logos are still a work in progress as well as my first book.

Big Red by Wayne

My husband asked Wayne Stadler to draw a picture of Big Red, his 1977 Royal Dodge Monaco, and he did.  Wayne is so talented and does drawings of any type of vehicle you want.  Give his website and Facebook page a look-see.

Time to Organize

It seems my office/craft room got a bit messy over the holidays.  It became a throw-all room for things that had no place to be displayed in the house.  When my Mom moved into our guest room, some of the stuff needed to be moved out and ended up in my room.

Now, it is a new year and time to get the room organized.  Since I have plans of creating brand new crafts for my Girlfriends Keepsakes Etsy shop, I need to go through my stuff to see what I have.  I  have been buying and finding interesting items, but I don't know what I want to use for the shop.  So here I go...
