Thrifty Owl Makeover



I found this little wooden owl recipe holder a few weeks ago for less than a buck. It was bland beyond belief- so I felt it was my obligation to cute it up a bit. Of course, green paint would be involved. After the paint dried I detailed the owl with my favorite art supplies- metallic SHARPIES. Lastly I slapped a coat of Mod Podge over the whole shebang. Viola! An easy peasy, less than 30 minute makeover! What do you think oh panel of crafty experts?

Thanks for looking friends!

Ruby Girl Friday #5


While I was rummaging through my vintage greeting cards, I noticed I had so many beautiful floral images. I decided to make today's freebie out of some wonderful blooms that I "dyed" a delightful plum hue. So simple and elegant. Also, today's collage graphic features one tough cookie- a mysterious lady smoking a cigar and drinking what appears to be whiskey. I think she's awesome. Hope you enjoy this week's eye candy!

Monster Cake Printable Sign


I have very inspired all month by the cute whimsicalness of my pal Lisa over at Hoopla Palooza. She has a pension for cute little monsters that are also sweeties. Sooooo, I made this 8''by10'' printable signage for a quirky lil' Halloween decoration. It was super fun creating all the "monster" cake clip art pieces! Hope you like, 'em everybody!
