Sugar Molds

I have seen these on other blogs and webshots and I found a recipe to make them that is really simple, so I thought I would try it and see how they come out. I need to find some real little cake or jell-o molds for a different look but these were really easy to do and they came out ok. My hardest part was finding a place for them. I got the recipe here...Primitives from Above

O Christmas Tree

I have had this done since before Christmas but just could not find a frame to fit. I have looked at all the dollar stores but they have had really thin frames that I did not care for. My Mom is going through her house and downsizing some stuff and she gave this to me. Hurray!!! Finally a frame that fits..thank you Mom.

Another jar

Got another jar label made up, this time I just typed out the words in Microsoft Word and then printed it out. I just used regular printer paper, no problems with it sticking to the jar, just that when I wash the extra glue off with water I have to be careful or it will rip the paper. I am now on a mission to find some old graphics I can use to make some more.

Another project done

Finished another project..hurray, I'm on a roll. This is what I store my dog food in. It was just a cream color so I painted it black first then did the mustard yellow. Sanded it down just a bit (more then what is showing) but since this gets used every day I figured it would get its own wear out of it. I also did my trash can the same way (below picture) a few months ago except I used red paint.

Yeah, a project done!!!

Finally I got a project done. I have a lot started but I just haven't had the time or the desire to get them done. I'm seen around the blog world that everyone is into putting labels on everything. While I did go on ebay and do a search for them, the extra money is just not there right now ( dh is unemployed) so I printed this off line from Twigs and Sprigs website, she also has a few more there. I soaked it in some leftover coffee and the glued it to the jar. Added some cheesecloth to the top and voila...old jar. I put some clothespins in it for now, as I don't use powered laundry detergent (use liquid) so I had none of that to put in it, but for now the clothespins work.
This is where I put it, this is on top of my washer. It hids the ugly

Still Here

Hello everyone, just dropping in to say hi. I'm still here, just been busy with everyday life, work, bills, cleaning, doing taxes, etc. I do have some things that I started but they just keep getting pushed to the side to get the other things done. Hope to get them done soon so they are out of the way. It is cold here weather wise and we have gotten lots of snow, but that is normal for this area. It could be snowing here and 5 minutes down the road, nothing. Wishing for Spring to get here...brrr!! I hate winter. Still checking out all of your blogs though and you ladies have some great ideas that I've saving to do,,like I need more
The picture is of my dog Kasper enjoy Christmas..stay safe and warm.
