A Very Creative Day

     Here in Kentucky the temperatures are soaring. The high for today was 106! This is the hottest it's been here since 1936. Crazy! So, since there was no going outside for me today, I decided that I would finish up a couple of craft projects that have been in progress for about...3 months now.

First, I finished spraying my chair re-do with gray spray paint. (I had already reupholstered the cushions a few months ago.) After the paint dried, I (actually Jeff), put the chair back together. Here is the final result.

Next, I worked on yet another yarn wreath. I could make these things for a living. They are so easy to make, and the end result is so cute.

Here is the next wreath I am going to attempt to make this fall. It is so pretty, and reminds me of something my Aunt Rosie would make. It looks like they just attached the mini corn-cobs to a straw wreath. It should be easy. We'll see soon enough :)

  3. That chair makeover is totally cute! Love it! and have you tried selling your wreaths on etsy? It can take some time and some work advertising but it just might be worth it!!!

  4. Hi Kathie and Christine! Thank you both for stopping by and inviting me to your link-up. I have added my post to both :)

  5. Jill,
    Thank you for your kind words. I would love to start an etsy shop, but just don't feel like I have enough time to devote it. It is in the back of my mind, though :)
