Fall Kick-Off......Brainstorming Session

This Wednesday we will meet at 6:00. No need to bring anything, 
Just your ideas. I know some of you have been scrapping 
For a long time and want to do something new. 
I completely agree. We will discuss some projects and plans 
For things we'd like to make this year! 
Don't you just love these pumpkin jars? We could make these! 

These jars are cute, too! It's done with etching cream. 
So many things can be done, wine glasses, casserole dishes,
You name it! We can do it! 

If you're like me you don't have a lot of extra cash to 
spend on Christmas gifts this year. How about let's 
Make some very Inexpensively??!!

These are just a few ideas I found on Pinterest. 
Bring yours and we'll
Set up some class dates and times!! 

Don't forget to come Wed, Sept 3rd, 6:00!
 Ready for a fun year!!

Made it Beachy!

I had fun adding some beachiness to my bathroom! 
Camille helped with the printer's tray. 

Bob's photos got Beachy frames. 

A Goodwill shelf got a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk paint
 in Old White. 

Painted some signs using the Paint, Vinyl, Paint, 
Peel technique. Love this!

My mom's painting finally got hung after repainting  the frame. 
I just love this now. I went from nothing on the walls

Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to resuming our
Scrapping and painting classes in September.

Camille and I were bored today.....

So we did some painting! Remember the printers tray I got at
 the 49 Flea Market? 

We also painted this vanity. Only got one coat on.
 This is the before. It was just too hot 
outside to paint out there. 

You just never know what will get painted next!

June.....back to painting and scrapping!

So happy to be back painting and scrappin'.
 The wedding was just beautiful and everything went smoothly. It could not have been more perfect!
This past week we scrapped on Wednesday and painted on Friday.
After checking out Goodwill at 8:30 we headed to Jackson to the Old House Depot. It is an architectural salvage shop with tons of really neat goodies. 

They had some nice rhubarb growing outside!

Then, since we were driving by, we had to stop at Paint and pick up some chalk paint. We were out of wax and Paris Grey. Love this shop!

Helen loved this cute litle teapot since she's in to tea.
Pam as a Price is Right model!

As you can see I was ready to paint, no make-up, nada. 

Finally we got home. 
 Here is the stuff we planned to paint.

But first, we had to have some lunch. Pam and Helen treated Bob and I to Mexican from the new restaurant that moved into where the Haughty Pig used to be. It was so delicious. Fresh cooked tacos with a slice of avocado on top. Yum! I highly recommend it!

Then it was time to paint. It seemed to be a blue day. 

 Helen's tray looks so cute now with Emile ASCP. 

Pam painted this cute humidor in Florence ASCP. 
I cut the stencil with my Cameo. It is so cute!

 Helen's jewelry box got Provence (my favorite)

And our Scrap projects:
 Another invitation that Helen will put in a shadow box frame for a gift.

Pam did a great job on William's birth announcement.

Another gift. Really cute.

Looking forward to more scrapping this week. With all this rain not sure we can paint. Thanks for visiting.

We had a good time painting on Wednesday. Pam finally finished up the sewing chest. It is so pretty! 
We added a few gold touches. 

To line the small drawer ,we found the perfect piece of scrapbook 
Paper with scissors on it! 
Judy painted this tray with Duck Egg blue and added a few gold touches with gilding wax. 

Pam also painted her "r" for her front door. It is Primer Red in ASCP. 

My friend Sharon sent me pictures of the things we painted after she got them in her home. Those chairs are awesome!

Remember the stereo cabinet? 

Look at it now in her bathroom, Wow, is that cute or what? Now everyone will be

It's wedding time!

Everyone is getting lots of wedding's that time of year! Pam came up with this idea a while back. We used scrapbook paper and other embellishements. She gets a shadowbox frame at Michael's to put them in. Makes a great wedding gift!
This wasn't a gift but a frame Holly painted with Chalk paint. She'd printed out this quote and added the some leaf die cuts leftover from Pam's project. 
Really cute!

Here is Helen's version for one invitation she received. Love the color and papers.

Another one!

Evelyn scrapped this week and did some more of Madison's
 school day keepsakes.

A recent trip to the "Big Easy".

Another gift. One of Helen's Bunko group friends is moving to Atlanta. Helen made her a gift which she will put in a frame. We went to Michael's to get the shadowbox frames and a frame for this one yesterday. They were all 50% off. Such a good deal and an inexpensive gift!

Another reminder about the Giveaway. I only have three entrants.
