I am officially DONE with exams.
Done with this semster.
And I have several weeks to just. breathe.
I completely intend to enjoy them.
Though this yucky sick stuff is traveling around my house and I'm just kinda being lazy today with little man.
So...I have about a zillion projects to show you and I'm not really even kidding (just a slight exaggeration, though)
So I'm going to try and get them all posted before Christmas but I give no promises.
You might be seeing Christmas-y spirt here even after Santa has come :)
But really... I have some fun things in store.
This is a project I did a few weeks ago before exams took over my life.
I love all the subway art in blogland and I had a blank wall and a canvas dying to be made over...
I mean... it just really wanted to be all decked out for Christmas.
And no... this is not a garage sale find but rather a project I did in high school...
I gave it a good coat of heirloom white... although I didn't worry about the sides because of the next few steps...
After that dried, I pulled out my huge box of cardstock letters I have from scrapbooking and started playing with them.
It took me a bit...but I finally got an arrangement I liked.
I also found a cardstock tree from an old mini album.
I actually didn't use my Cricut at all for this...ah-mazing, huh?
I lightly adhered them with some spray adhesive and then took it back outsite to get a pretty coat of Rust-oleum red...
This time I got the sides :)
Here's the pretty little thing after...
The only thing I wasn't super thrilled about was the thicker letters didn't adhere as well so when I pulled them up, some of the red had leaked under them.
We can call it vintage, then, right??
While the paint was still a little tacky, I sprinkled some blue crystal glitter I had for a little sparkle :)
So...there ya have it.
Quick. Easy. And sparkly.
What more can you ask for?
Seriously...keep checking back.
I have cool stuff up my sleeves.
Including teacher gift ideas (for cheap!), a random baby shower present and a really awesome countdown that I LOVE.
Oh and a pretty cool announcement (totally blog related...don't get too carried away!)
So I'm gonna go rest this little sick head of mine... hope you're having a merry christmas season!
