I love To Alter things

I was cleaning out my son's closet, which was my storage area for all of my crafting supplies and found this clock that I bought at Walmart for around 5 dollars. I think the clock is ugly left as is, its just too plain.
My DH's bar area was in need of a clock, so I took the clock grabbed some manly paper I picked up at A C Moore, cut out a circle with my George Cricut Cartridge @ 6 3/4 in. and cut out the numbers using the Calligraphy Cartridge @ 3 inches.

This is what I came up with. Simple but customized. My DH loved it and I enjoyed putting it together for him. Now on to my next 2 projects. As always

Decor for my daughter's Room

I have been shopping around for decor for my daughter's room. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for but I was so tired of seeing that huge and long pink wall so plain I needed to fill it and fast.
I walked into Michael's and they had wooden unaltered stars on sale. I think I paid .50 for each, grabbed 5 and off I went. I finally decided to paint the stars and the DH and I decided on 5 words we thought we would like our daughter to always be a part of who she was.
Star....No paint

We chose: Dream, Imagine, Inspire, Believe & Strength

Here's a picture of the stars....I just finish painting them

Project Recipe:
5 unaltered wooden stars
yellow paint
black vinyl
sparkle mod podge & brushes
cricut & caligraphy cart

Here is a picture of the finish product.....On my way to my daughter's room to hang them up.

I hope you liked my project and as always

An Unfinished Project

I recently had to give up my crafting room to my new addition. I had a little boy in February and packed most of my supplies away in boxes and crates. I've tried to keep somethings in a little space, so I have easy access to them whenever I want to make a scrapbook page or card.

While I was packing all my stuff, Idecided that now was the perect time to finish a project I had started a year ago. The projest was a Painter's canvas that I altered for my husband for Last Father's Day!!! *Yes I know I'm horrible and what's even worse is I never officially gave him the gift, I just thank God that he is very easy going and super understandable.* I chose the title A Touch Of Class because my DH loves to "trick Out" all of his cars. The empty spaces on the paper are going to hold pictures of all the cars he has ever owned and "tricked out"
