Several old movies, 5 1/2 hot glue sticks and burns from the hot glue later, I'm finished.






Very nice. I'd bet that would make a very cushy toilet seat.

It's a shame so many people are critical of your wonderful decorating ideas.

I bought a few chipboard words the other day (live, love & laugh). I decided to do something to the one that says love. I painted it with black chalk board paint then sat and looked at it while I watched yet another old movie (Arsenic and Old Lace with Cary Grant, fun movie).

This is what I ended up doing to it.

Those are really well done.  This is the kind of stuff I'd pay good money for at a craft fair.  I can see my husband slapping his head now...I've already got so much stuff collecting dust.  I keep racks in the basement and rotate my crafts from season to season.  He goes down there and says, when are you going to get rid of some of this stuff...  Then I walk over to his tools and say...when you get rid of some of this crap...you should see his face then... :rotf:

Similar conversation in my house the other day...

Me:Hey honey, I found a really neat magazine cookbook today. I'm going to make a cake recipe I found.

Him: Don't you have enough cookbooks? there's 500 of them in your office.

Me: Don't you have enough fishing stuff?

Him: I haven't bought anything new in months! You bought a new cookbook last week!

Me: What about all those worm thingies you bought last week? Something about the fish were biting on purple plastic worms instead of red ones? And just who did the study to determine that fish know the difference between a purple plastic worm and a red one or a green one or whatever?

Him: What kind of cake are ya makin' ?



Score one for the redhead!!!!   :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

BEG ... you are so good at this stuff. You should sell it on Etsy.

My wife left me... I don't understand.
After the last child was born, she told me we had to cut back on expenses - I had to give up drinking beer.
I was not a big drinker, maybe a 12-pack on weekends.
Anyway, I gave it up but I noticed the other day when she came home from grocery shopping. The receipt included $45 in makeup.
I said, "Wait a minute I've given up beer and you haven't given up anything!"
She said, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you."
I told her, "Hell, that's what the beer was for!"
I don't think she'll be back

The wreath took me hours to do which I spread out over a few days.  Now I know why they sell them for so much on Etsy. The "LOVE" word I used chalk board paint and then used Mod Podge to adhere a piece of Tim Holtz scrapbook paper that I already had.  I traced the letters then cut it out.  Then I used a couple different sizes of files to file the edges and inked it with distress ink, then a final coat of Mod Podge (matte).

One thing I noticed is a lot of people don't know when to stop and they keep adding crap. There are a lot of people I follow on YouTube who add a whole bunch of flowers and bling on their projects and, in my view, ruin it.

"Love" and "Hotels"?

Took the burlap ribbon off, it was too large.

I had this little table laying around, had it for years so I put it under the wreath with some other stuff. I think I need a larger and slightly taller table for that area.  Oddly, there is not a plug there. It really feels like there should have been a plug. I could have put a lamp instead of a candle on the table.

I think it looked better with the ribbon, but you're right that ribbon was too big.

I have smaller burlap ribbon, I'll try that tomorrow.

Looks like a nice knocker.
