Three Little Birds….

As Singer Corrine Bailey’s lyrics say “Three little birds sat on my window and they told me I don’t need to worry….”   This craft came from the Crafts for Kids special edition from Disney Family Fun magazine.  It is suppose to be a kid’s craft, but I thought my window could use a few little birds.  So maybe  these little guys could remind me to have faith and not worry so much!

Inspiration—Subway Art

I Have a spot in the kitchen that could use something.  I love the new subway art, so I looked to see what I had on hand–some black paint, a box, and Mod Podge.  I Painted the Box black with acrylic paint(took two coats) and printed off some words and sayings I liked.  I arranged them before I decoupaged them to the box and then took them off.  I put a base layer of mod podge and then a top layer after I adhered the words.  I was a bit messy with it and the words bubbled up a bit, but I think it works!

Lovin’ Mod Podge

Our house is basically a work in progress.  It was built in 1905 and needs alot of tender loving care.  I painted the kids playroom/guest room.  The light switch plates in that room were a hideous beige and I wanted a quick fix.  Modge podge and scrapbook paper to the rescue.  Took a total of 15 minute to create a new look.  I may have to start mod podging all the hideous light switch plates we have!!
