Still Crafting Away .......

Oh my goodness. I did it. I actually managed to get two posts up this week thanks to a bit of sunshine earlier in the week that made picture taking so much easier.

Give me a pat on the back for this accomplishment.

I am so glad you've stopped by for a visit today. I just hope I don't bore you by showing off my latest shabby crafty creations again.

These are very similar to the other ones I've made over the past few weeks. For these, I just used a different shaped chipboard piece to create the wall hangings.

I know I am probably bragging a bit, but I am so happy with how these crafty creations of mine have turned out. The pictures really don't do them justice. They look even better in person with their soft and shabby colors of pink, green and tan. It was so much fun and very easy to create these "masterpieces" using just torn up scraps of paper, some Modge Podge glue and then adding the embellishments.

These won't be the last of them that I'll be making. Thanks to me going a bit overboard and loading up on the chipboard books that I found a while ago in the dollar bins at Michael's, I have lots of blank canvases to use in making these. I'll likely run out of my pretty shabby colored scrapbook papers before I run out of the chipboard pieces.

When I showed these off to a male friend of mine, he kindly told me that he thought that even Martha Stewart would be proud of me. I'm thinking maybe he was lying because most guys just don't get this girly, crafty, artsy kind of stuff, but a girl can still dream can't she???

Oh how precious Kim, love this latest creation! That's so cute what your male friend said about you and I'll have to agree with him... Something tells me that your nickname is gonna become Martha :)

Love those shabby french inspired storage boxes you found at Michaels too...I wish we had a Michael's nearby! We girls can never get enough storage boxes that's for sure.
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Hi Kim!

Oh, I am loving these pretty wall hangings. Hey girl, you can brag, cause they are sooo pretty! I love those pretty boxes too that look like books. I have to make a trip there! I hope I can come across some of those chipboards too someplace. Thanks for sharing. Stay warm, and have fun creating. Come by for a visit, and see the shabby bird that I created.
