Crafting Like Crazy

It's already Wednesday! The week is flying by! The painting of our house has finally been finished! Yay! All the rain we've gotten lately put a serious damper on the project! Monday my friend and I managed a whirlwind shopping tour of our quaint downtown. Tuesday was full of errands, the dentist and the post office! Has to be done! And today, I've been a craftin' manic! A lot of holiday things have sold from my Etsy shops so I've been trying to restock the shelves! Thank you to all of you who have purchased something! The support is so much appreciated! Now, let me share a couple of my projects with you.



This is my caroling songbird picture. He was so fun and easy to make! I painted an unfinished wood frame and papered the inside with vintage sheet music. The little bird accent is from K & Company's new line, called Evergreen. I fastened a trio of jingle bells on the lower right hand corner and a bow to the top of the bird accent...done!

This is my Winterberry Wreath I made last weekend. I found these fabulous 15" pine wreaths from the dollar store and decked it out with these lovely berries in varrious shades of blue. The final touches were the silver glittered berry and leaf pick and the wide white grosgrain bow with blue button center. I wanted to keep this, but thought I should list it in my shop since I can't keep everything. And it sold!

This is the last project I'll show you today since I need to get back to it. This barn star is actually rusty metal that I papered with bits and pieces of vintage sheet music. I inked it a bit to make it look aged and then I added tinsel stems around the edges. Another accent from the Evergreen line, a dimensional chipboard sentiment is placed in the center of the star. Lastly, the bow and a jute hanger. Ready for the tree! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my projects!

I love your projects! That songbird frame looks so cute with the bells in a row. What a clever idea. And so glad I got to see a picture of your wreath since it sold so darn quickly. Beautiful! We need to make another run to the $store. Love the barn star, too. Like the pieced effect of the music paper and love the tinsel trim.
