Ok dear siblings, do not be saddened by what you are about to read.

Q & A (for Meg & Sarah)

Q#1: Do you think I should cover my star with black and white damask paper? (from Meg)
A: I dont remember how big yours is.... Just go easy on the black and white balance! :)

Q#2: How do you make the star? (from Meg AND Sarah)
A: Well they are metal stars ( I wanted to do them wood but the only ones available had to be ordered on line and that would take to much time). I didn't make them but told the girl how to do it. Make a template with blank paper of the sides of the star you want to cover. She basically combined two sides of the star in the same template. I would have done each flat surface a different template/paper. Use Modpodge to glue it on. If you want it slick/shiny cover the surface with the Modgepodge also. She didn't cover the surface on this sample but sanded a tiny bit and then inked it. It looks cute just sanded also.
It is Scrapbook paper we covered it with.

Q#3: Home sign how?
A: It's a $3.00 frame from Wal-Mart that simply has the Vinyl Lettering rubbed on. The glass is hot glued on so it wont fall out cause you dont put the back on it. You drill holes through the frame to run the ribbon through. Sarah, I will make you one. :)

The End

Mini Album in the making... ME

Of course it is all empty right now but i will fill it with things about me...
nobody may every get to see it finished!
I was inspired by two things.

1. a Mini album in a paper crafting mag that was made with reds and light blue
2. Steady Hand, Faulty Heart Flickr Group

Other Super Saturday Projects

Here are two of the other SS projects we will be doing... i asked two different women to teach these crafts.....

This is my lovely red wall.
Don't you just love it!

The star is metal and will have two other sizes (both smaller) to compliment it.
You can hang them on the wall or lean them.

Stuff Sign w/Hooks

So last weekend I was meandering through Hobby Lobby and walked by the "clearance corner" and found this cutie.... it is metal and very heavy and was originally in a rusty looking brown color. I decided this would look super cute in my Craft Studio so I painted it....


Super Saturday Project - MY Version!

Here is my version!

Super Saturday Project

So I was asked to help with Super Saturday in our ward (the non-crafty ward so I have heard). This is my project.
I'm still working on getting the metal to adhere to the wood.
I also have another one I am doing for my Craft Studio...
it is
and has the words
on it. I can't wait until it is done. Maybe even tonight... if so I will post a picture!

The sisters in the ward get the choice of the word
(as shown in above picture)
written in a cute hand writing font.
I think I will make this one for myself and paint it
(actual turq. color is much deeper in real life)
like the cabinet in my Studio.
