[I can’t help myself … knowing that my first craft show and Christmas are right around the corner, I can’t stop making things ... Christmas things. For example, I had these little wood block scraps from some leftover home project. The wood was way too thick to create signs, so I decided to use them as little, wood desk toppers.
I’m in the Christmas spirit (although my house doesn’t look it yet – I still have pumpkins in my family room), so I decided to make some Christmas blocks. I primed them all with Krylon white primer, hand painted a few in this really pale green, and stamped them with Christmas designs in a red ink. I didn’t like how they turned out, so I started over. I decided to decoupage them and then distress them with a paint and glaze mixture.
I painted over all three sides with this cool bluish green. Then, as I was decoupaging one of the blocks, another block fell over and ended up getting paint splotches all over it.]
“Darn it,” I thought, as I cleaned off the spatter. And my kids came running to see "what's the matter?"
But, what to my wondering eyes did appear? Absolutely not eight tiny reindeer!
Instead, my eyes twinkled and my heart gave a start. What I saw before me was a cool piece of art!
I sprang to my feet and began to whistle and then flew down the stairs like the down of a thistle.
And you probably heard me, as I cleared up my doubt. "It's just so funny how these things turn out." I'm linking to:
