Faux Bois Tree Stump…

blogphotos 003

I had meant to have a finished project to show you today…didn’t work out that way. This still has to dry and be painted. I invited Carmen over last night to have a “crafts night”. Geez that’s fun! For me crafting is often a solitary endeavor (ooooo – big words!) and I really don’t mind. I like quiet and to be alone. But sometimes company is just the ticket! I got the idea for this project from watching Martha Stewart. Actually, I had had something like this on my mind for a long, long time and was thrilled when I saw the show – they had great tips! Check it out! I think I’ll be making a few more of these as I made a humungous batch of pulp…any other ideas???

Also, my friend Julie is hosting a “garden swap” – you sign up to swap some goodies with someone else. You don’t have to have a blog to participate, and you don’t have to make something. Some seeds, gardening gloves, or anything gardening related would be great! I think it’s a $20.00 value. I’m gonna do it and I have to think of something to make. Cause I like making stuff! Go sign up!!

Happy Crafting!

So what are you going to do with the tree trunk? Ideas? Gotta share you know.
I'm suppose to be exercising but as you can see, I'm still on my computer. One more blog and I'm done. Yeah right, I said at 8:00 I'd be done. I gotta really get going, picking mama up at 9:30 to head to Brainerd to get a new ring. I'll call you this afternoon when I get home.
Take care Kim.
