New Addiction

Remember my creating center Hubby let me make in the garage? Well, I have been searching for a stool so I can sit while I get my craft on. Awhile back I saw a simple wooden stool like this at Goodwill and they wanted $15 for it! Highway robbery I tell you! You can buy them brand new for that much at Wally World!

A few nights ago while doing my daily check of Craig's list, a lady was selling 3 stools for $10. I quickly e-mailed her asking if she meant $10 a piece or for all three. She replied $10 for all three! I raced over and picked them up! Confession~ Craig's list is my new addiction!
I had paint left over from my entry table so I painted them teal, and Mod podged numbers on that I cut out of Amy Butler paper!
I love how they turned out! Now, not only can I sit and get my craft on, but each of my daughters has her own stool to create on as well!


I had a few friends comment wanting to see the necklace I made from rosettes and mentioned in my last post. Here is a picture. It looks bigger than it is. Enchantress #1 called Sunday afternoon to see if I ended up wearing it to church. (I had to speak that day) Hubby answered the phone. When she asked him if I wore it, he honestly didn't know! He is very observant!:)



I also wanted to post a picture of what I put under my new cloche. I found these scary skulls at the dollar store. Yes, I am already decorating for Halloween!


Lastly, Jen at Vietti View awarded us with a honest scrap award! Thanks so much Jen! We love your blog as well!
We are linking this up to Kimba over at A Soft Place To Land for her DIY party

OHHH I'm drooling over your craft center. Now off to brainwash hubs into giving me a space in the garage. I may never return!

Hello - there's so much to talk about with your post! First of all, I adore your new crafting center. The colors you chose are fabulous. My fave is the splashes of black mixed in with the softer shades. Ooh la la! And you did a terrific job on the stools. Love your rosette necklace. *drool*

Blessings,

You are so lucky to have your own space in the garage! I have a mini-van and my hubs drives a full size 4 door truck - it's a big deal for him to have both cars parked in the garage - so there's no room for one for me:( It's not too bad though, I've taken over 1/2 of 'his' office with my own desk and 'craft center' I only wish that room was BIGGER!

Cute! I made some of these recently but I used sharpie for the numbers! I love yours though, the blue is to die for!

Thanks for sharing!

I have those skulls too! Can't beat them for a buck - you can pretty much sit them anywhere to add a little spook!

April said...

You are too crafty!! I love your little nook of inspiration. Justin doesn't mind that I take up the dining room table, but give up part of the garage??? I don't think so.
