Next I have been adding smidges of stuff to some fabric mini books I made ( hope to offer classes in the Spring of 2013). Here are a few sneak peeks ~
I have also been making boatloads of fabric art journals, but don't have any sneaks to share. I will soon! My Beginner's Guide to Fabric Class should hopefully happen soon at the Art Studio. We are having a Grand Opening Bash before long, details to follow as they become available.
I am also working on some projects for the house.
Remember how I have mentioned my high tech plastic $50.00 tables we are using for an island? After almost a year, I decided it was time to get my rear into gear and upcycle something cool into an island. We purchased an old pretty sturdy antique buffet several years ago at an antique store. We never got around to using it, partially because it needed refinishing, and partly because we found something else to use instead (at our old house). It has sat in dust in the barn for a few years so we finally hauled it out to our house and I am going to strip it and then paint it. Then we hope to put either a butcher block top or some other sort of solid top on the piece and use it as an island/workstation. I am over the top excited about this project! Here are some pictures of the piece now ~
can't WAIT to show you what it looks like when it is finished! I also picked up some wood cupboard doors at the Restore store (all proceeds from the store go to Habitat for Humanity) and I am going to turn them into some cool signs using paint and vintage images. You can see the various cupboard doors on top of the antique buffet above. Stay tuned for updates!
Well friends, that is it for me today, I need to get things ready for a conference I am attending for work. I get to present at the conference, I am pretty excited about it. :)
I hope you all enjoy a joyful and creative day! ~ Pam
