Happy 2017

Hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start!  Here’s what I bought myself before Christmas.  I wanted to use it when I took Asher’s Christmas picture.   It’s a letter board from Letterfolk.  I had to faithfully keep trying to  get it ordered as they kept selling out but they managed to keep restocking once a week and you had to be quick about ordering because they would sell out fast. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it.  As always with me, it’s just the little things that seem to excite me so, lol!

Here’s another item I got excited about.  He’s a lavender scented microwavable owl.  I was sick over Christmas break and let me tell you this owl sure felt good when I was chilling.  I’m telling you there is just a little kid walking around in this adult body.

Last but not least, this little owl cutie  Smile

Weekend Project

Found this alphabet  vinyl decal at a thrift shop for $3.00.  I was so excited as I had a plan for it.

Another Pinterest idea I have been wanting to do for some time and finally got it done.  Honestly, where would we be without Pinterest, lol!

Mason Jar Coasters

I came across this idea on Pinterest from http://thehoneycombhome.com/diy-mason-jar-coasters/.
I thought they were pretty awesome so I decided I would give them a try.  I purchased a box of the wide mouth lids

She used black chalkboard paint and a white chalk marker. I used what I had on hand.   If I were to do it again, I  would use all patio paint as I think it would be more durable, but what I used is working just fine.

I gave the inner lid parts 2 coats of paint.

I then stenciled on the numbers with the white paint.

I sealed them with 3 coats of the Modge Podge and then used a hot glue gun to attached the lids to the outer rings.    Update:  while using one of my coasters, I realized it  had a milky white film (like the modge podge looks before it dries)  I googled this and found where some  people said this  happened to them when they got something wet that had Modge Podge on it,  while others said they got a long fine, maybe it’s the brand I don’t know. So I thought perhaps if I applied polyurethane to it that would solve the problem. I applied 3 coats and yes it did solve the problem. So next time I will skip the Modge Podge when making coasters and just use the polyurethane.
