Spring Wreaths

My parents just moved closer to us *insert happy dance* and I wanted to get my mom something fun for a house warming gift. After much consideration I landed on a fun spring wreath with navy blue, that is her favorite color.
After a search on old faithful Pinterest and a trip to The Mother Ship (hobby lobby), I came up with two wreaths for her to pick from.
What do you think? She chose the navy striped one and the other fab wreath is up in the etsy store!

Painting a dresser

I received a dresser from my in-laws after the passing of their great aunt. It is a beautiful piece, but is a little damaged from storage. I am working on giving it a new life, while honoring the old. I am an antique geek!!
Phase one: painting the top with a striped pattern to give it a fresh look and to hide some damage.
Phase two: some snappy new knobs! (thoughts??)

Salty Art

Glue, dark paper, paintbrushes, salt and water colors or food coloring.

Use your liquid glue to create a picture then sprinkle it with salt. Let it dry then create some salty art!

We started out using watercolors and that worked fine, but it had to be super wet in order to work correctly and that was proving difficult for my little dude. I switched to water and food coloring and that worked great!

Dry and ready to go!

Voila! Masterpieces!

It's Grim Coffee and Tea over at Etsy

I am really enjoying making these Harry Potter coffee cups and the reception has been really great! I am also planning some Zombie coffee cups, so be looking out for those. I think that my Etsy store is going to be taking on a distinctly Geeky flavor, and I love it!
