Five Fact Friday
Thursday THE Bachelor, Brad, bumped into me in Starbucks downtown. Literally.
Let’s just say my drink tasted a little better that day, it came with the most gorgeous view :) haha
Since I am totally slacking on the internet front, I am going to make it up to you!
Post a comment on this blog post, or visit my fb fan page, and I will reply with a coupon link for $10 off the FlipIt, or $5 off my new Mesmerizing Black & White/Sepia Action!
Just let me know which one you want! It will be good until the next FFF, but you have to give me a day to get that to you, please and thank you, ya know, cause the whole finger/slacking thing!
Thanks for sticking around too, and being patient! My finger is like more than broken :( I have to have surgery to fix it, so this whole slacking thing might stick around for a little while, not cool, I know.
I’m a total craft DIY crazy person! I love it all, and this week I made this sign for Sniggs’ new California room :)
I had some major difficulties with sanding, and I will be buying a real sander next time I’m at Lowes to go over it again, but I love it, and cannot wait to hang it in the new house!
I bought the decal on Etsy, ( check it out here ) then the piece of board is 24×24, got that and the rope at Lowes for under $10! And I already had the paint, I have TONS of paint at the house, I like love painting things for some reason, lol
I actually pushed the buy button on the decal not too long ago, with the intention of putting it right on the wall, but after thinking more I thought it would be better if it looked like an actual beach sign, with a little worn edging and what not. So I ended up using it for a template :)
So, I painted the board blue, twice, then when it was dry I applied the decal. Then I went over it again with blue to seal the decal. Then when that dried I painted it white, twice, haha. Then I picked the decal off with a razor blade, revealing the blue, then I sanded it down, again, the best I could left handed, haha. I am so looking forward to this excuse for the sander purchase :) That’s it though, super easy, and I love it! Oh oh oh, and I just pushed the buy button on a Silhouette SD! YAY!! I cannot wait until that arrives … tomorrow. I’m such a brat with the whole instant gratification thing, and when Amazon politely informs me that I can have delivered next day, I can’t turn Mr Amazon down. It is what it is. I am beyond stoked though, I have lots of plans for that bad boy! I’m a decal freak.
Our slab was poured today! Double yay!
I finished up a really cute custom blog this week! I’m just waiting on her header & bio photos, then I can share it :) So be sure to check back soon!
