My daughter is moving next week--about 6 hours away from us. Before leaving she came to visit for a couple of days and we decided to do some crafting and creativity while she was here. She decided to antique a frame to hang above her bed at her new place. Here she is, pausing her painting to pose for a picture.
She then painted my lampshade for me while I was painting the base. I found this on clearance at the Big Store, and plan to use it in my kitchen. (Actually, we began our weekend by meeting up at a local store that specializes in primitive and Americana style--right up my area. Bretty's has some great stuff, and you should definitely check them out! It was there that I was inspired to move forward with my plan to ROOSTERNIZE my kitchen!!)
The lamp met my criteria: it was small, and it was cheap. $4 cheap.

Let dry overnight. Then I stamped using Close to My Heart's Friendship Bouquet set (page 142 of the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book) sunflowers. Let me say, the stamping was awful! Lots of problems there, but in the end, I love it.
we create with LOVE and JOY,
not with perfection.
