Princess Ballerina Stools

Got a couple more projects done. The first is a small round stool that I got at a garage sale. I painted it pink, cut out Princess with my Cricut on Heat Transfer Vinyl and applied it to some pink duck cloth. I covered the stool and then I made a tu-tu with black and white tulle and attached that to the edge of the stool. The second stool I did was a small rectangle foot stool that has a hinged top. This stool was done in the same manner as the first. Hope you enjoy!

Refurbished Vanity Chair

I finally finished a project!  I have taken an old vanity chair that I bought and refurbished it.  Here is what it looked like before:
I stripped all the old paint off and painted it black.  I then covered the cushions with burlap that I applied heat transfer graphics on.    The graphics are:  a vintage perfume bottle, and a vintage corset both courtesy of "The Graphics Fairy".  Then I trimmed the seat and back with a black boa.  I also embellished the corset buttons with crystals.  Here is how it turned out.  Hope you like!  Thanks again to "The Graphics Fairy"
Off to my next project!

Roller Derby Queen Went Home

All's well after the Roller Derby Queen's surgery on Monday. She still can't drive for another week, but she insisted on going home today. I know it's easier to rest in your own bed, but I will miss having her here for me to take care of. I will be going to her apt. on a regular basis to check on her. She has a roommate so she won't be alone. She did real well during the surgery on her shoulder and the doc said it will almost be as good as new, but no roller derby for a few months! After the surgery on Monday she insisted we stop for a "Starbucks" and then she ate chicken strips when we got home, took a nap and then called her daddy to bring a popsicle home for her. He brought 8. I think someone has dad wrapped around her little finger. So now I can get back to my crafts!

Still working on my Blog!

Still have a few bugs to work out on this blog. Maybe one day I will get the hang of it! Just got finished getting my daughter's room ready for her visit. She is having surgery Monday on her shoulder. She is a member of the "Houston Roller Derby" league and got knocked down during a practice session and tore and stretched some tendons and ligaments in her right shoulder. Thank goodness it is outpatient and she really is a good "patient". She hopes to be back in her own apartment after her follow-up on Wednesday. That is if the Dr. says she can drive. It will be good to have her home again so I can take care of her! Until then I won't be able to do any crafting as her room is my craft room!

Finally started a Blog!

After much "encouragement" from my friend and partner in crime,I mean crafts, Kathy from Caloway Creations,I have decided to start a blog. Please be gentle with me as I learn the ropes. The first thing I am going to post is a vintage American Tourister round makeup case. I got the ballerina image from "The Gaphics Fairy" and I got the sheet music from the web. I then decoupaged the images onto the makeup case. I plan on making a chair with the same ballerina image. Will post other projects in the near future!
