The creative bug lives on me, biting me to create, make, design, craft, you name it. With Summer here it has it's little fangs in me good. This is never a bad thing, it's keeps me busy and I'm pretty frugal when it comes to these projects. This week I've planted a couple of flower beds out front, made these little labels for the girls' first birthday party favors (pink gum balls in baby food jars with pink lids) ...
and making simple little pieces like this:
|I contemplated keeping it classic white and distress it some, but that's overkill right now...|
look like this:
|Turquoise, my color of preference right now, and large print leopard|
I'm absolutely loving working on these old pieces and have two plant stands, a vanity, and sewing table already up on deck for their upcycle. I'm not cutting corners either. I'm using this nifty little hand sander given to me from my mom to sand all of the old paint, filling in dents with wood filler, priming, and after the paint job is done, these pieces are getting a polyurethane seal that should not only protect the paint but resist water stains.

I'm not the only one working on projects either! My mom surprised us with these super cute dresses she made herself. I sent my mom a photo of a super cute dress my friend purchased for her daughter and mom made it look like a piece of cake. She's already working on the next set of dresses and there is definitely a Dallas Cowboys dress waiting to be made just in time for football season!
Tomorrow is Thursday which is usually the kick off to some pretty great weekends so here's hoping yours is a blessed one!
