We moved in with my parents for a while (talk about a TIGHT fit!!!! Six of us plus my parents and 2 youngest brothers...in a 3 bedroom ranch) THANK GOD they finished the basement a few years ago!
I looked for a new place to rent for months. Finally, we found one...close to my parents, good school district, big enough for all of us! And NO MOLD!
Honestly, I had lost my mojo once he died...he was not only my husband, he was my best friend, my soul mate, the man God had chosen for me...
I have been invited to MANY blog hops and activities/events on Facebook , but just haven't had the desire to DO anything...the other night, I had been invited to an event called "Green With Envy" and I thought...might need to try that..and I did...wow...had a good time, laughed so hard and so much, much more than I have in many months...So, this is also a HUGE thank you to Pinque Peacock
The "girls" have been so great!!! And they have some really awesome things!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the stick pins, and the stick pin angels...omgosh, beautiful! I won some flowers at the event and I CAN NOT wait to get them!!!! Ihave SO MANY ideas for projects to use them on!!!! If you get a chance, and if you read down this far in my post ;) please go to the link and check them out!!!!

Ok...so I am not sure if I ever told you how much I love to yard sale, thrift shop, and goodwill dig :) it is one of my favorite ways to fine inspiration!
So...this pice was one of my yard sale finds...before it was very non descript...and I suppose a little ugly to most...but for me, inspiration hit!
I used krylon satin black (my new fave basecoat!) To paint it after removing the old corkboard, screws for notepad, and covering the key hooks...o, and removed the faux leather "embellishments"
Amd the finished piece...
Hope you enjoy!

I got these hangers as plain wooden ones at Micheals for $2.50 each...I bought 5 but only have pics of the one. Sorry :-!
So, I used spring green folk art acrylic paint to coat the hanger. I didn't sand it as I usually do, but it turned out ok. :-)
I used 3 coats for good even coverage. I used the green patterned paper (will check on the pack it came from and add it once I can get to my craft area). I traced the outline of the hanger onto the paper and attached it with modpodge. I used my fingers to rub out the bubbles. I let that dry and then sanded around all the edges. I added a little paint to the edge of the paper to blend. Once dry I added my epoxy sticker and tied coordinating ribbon to the metal base of the hanging part of the hanger. Then I sprayed it with acrylic sealer. I did use 2 coats...note...please remember to do this part outside as the fumes can make you VERY sick.
Thanks for stopping by!

So, I have decided to set a personal goal of posting to my blog at least 4 times a week. For those who are "veteran" bloggers, do you think this is an attainable goal? I have many projects in my head...just need to get them applied! Hoping this will make it a bit easier to do more for the shop and more personally :-) look for me soon!
