I joined ASC in the second week of her closet craftiness or closet crafty challenge as I've been calling it. This week we made name boards! Go check hers out here she did a great job and includes a tutorial which I followed.
I was actually really excited for this one because my sister in law is expecting so this was the perfect opportunity to make her something special and personalized and it was so easy!
I went with a small oval shape and painted it with acrylic paint and then I cut out scrapbook paper and decoupaged it to the top of the oval, I painted the letters and then glued them right on. I opted to use a ribbon instead of attaching backing because I thought it was fun!
My only lessons for next time are shinier mod podge (not matte) and maybe not trying to attempt to cute a perfect oval with my kitchen scissors but other than that I think it turned out great!
I can't believe it's December already- 2010 has just flown by I can't even believe it. I went to my first holiday party of the season this past Saturday and got to wear my new H&M dress I scored for $30.00! I know it isn't the best quality but I LOVE H&M because I can buy cheap trendy stuff and not feel guilty!

I also got our tree up and all of our decorations out...
I joined ASC in weekly craft project and this was our first one- Glitter Trees!! Check hers out they turned out great... mine on the other hand were ehhh. I had never used spray adhesive so lets just say my first tree didn't turn out at all and these were slightly better but still not the best.
The silver one turned out much better than the red one
I've also decided to stick to blogging- thank you all for your encouraging words :)
