Let’s get our craft on!

Lately I have not felt productive. This thing called work tends to drain all my juice out, however, today I wrote a list have started striking them out. Dot point number one *finish canvas’s. Check! I’m very much an amateur but that leaves room for ‘wow’ moments…

If you ever invest in some canvas’s {try for bargain ones like mine} and you can make art too. All I used was paint, buttons and hot glue. Go for it!

Happy Friday everyone! What does your weekend have in store for you? Mine involves dance, tennis, Christmas baking, Mr J’s work dinner, and a family lunch! Super excited.

Rubberband Vases

I woke up very excited to have a day off from work in the beautiful sunshine today. I stayed in bed as long as I wished and devoured Mum’s homemade meatballs with Nana’s homemade chutney for brunch. Dressed in cosy clothing I drove down the street and spontaneously visited the local op shop. Success! It didn’t take long to walk out the store with three vases, two canvas‘, beads, a mirror and a jar that cost a total of $20. Bargain. I’m looking forward to my next craft projects. One has already been completed since then, my rubberband vases.

All you need:
*A vase or more
*Rubberbands
*Spray paint of your desired colour
*Sandpaper

All you need to do:
1. Lay out an area with newspaper to keep your surroundings spray painted free
2. Wrap as many rubberbands around your clean vases as you wish
3. Place the vases upside down on the newspaper
4. Spray the entire vase with your paint
5. Wait until the paint is dried and remove the rubberbands
6. Use the sand paper to smooth down any raised bits of paint
7. From here, you can decide whether you want to coat the vase with any other paints or polish {I’m still deciding this one!}

This afternoon I spent an hour at the local library where I spoke with a lovely gentleman. Our conversation started as I recognised his accent – he was from the states. He was in no rush to leave so we spoke in detail about the weather over there, it was great! Now I will go home to cook dinner and get ready for another day at work tomorrow.
