Catching Up on Being Creative...

Okay, it's been quite awhile since I've posted anything so this will be a catch-up post...a little of this and a little of that. I think I had posted creative things up through the 19th day. I can't put actual dates on these next things but they all happened since the 19th.

 I painted three more 6 x 6 canvases...
ready for dresses.

 I repaired a small chest we have in the master bedroom.
The metal edging was coming loose all around the edges.

 These are two Christmas ornaments I started.
They aren't finished yet.

 There are always old candles around here. 
These needed a new look so I rolled them in Mod Podge
and then in Epsom salts...saw this on Pinterest.

 These are two pieces of wood from some old fence posts HB cut down.
I roughly sanded them and dabbed on some white paint.
They will become snowmen!!

This is the second dress canvas I've done.

And this is what my work table looks like right now!
I'm working on other things that I can't show yet.
But you can see I've been busy.

My back is feeling better. Thanks for all the emails and good thoughts and suggestions.
I have back problems almost every day but some times it gets really bad.
Especially when I over-do...which I did over the holiday.

HB and I have started our Christmas decorating but I'm taking it easy. I'll have photos soon and hopefully more creative things to share.

  4. I am LOVING your art table -- and I stand in awe of all the creativity happening there. I'm not sure which great idea I'll take out of this post -- the ornaments? The epsom salts? I hope all of them!

  6. I am so glad your back is getting better...I know what you mean about over doing, we do pay dearly.
    I love the dresses, what a cute and fun idea...and since I have been going through stuff I haven't seen in years...I have found some stuff that will need some TLC.
    I am having ear pain, feel really awful...guess it must be the weather changing. Two more days and my carpet will be installed. I washed windows today. We made the trash men happy this morning..we throw away a box full of old VHS movies...he looked happy.
    Have a great day, Mary
