What the H? It's A Craft Day!

I love Crafting.

I love Mod Podge!

The day before my beautiful daughter went back to school to finish her last semester, (sigh...) we decided we would have a craft day. Just the two of us. Fun right? She had to work on some little scrap book pages for her sorority sisters. But I didn't have anything in mind. We walked through JoAnn's. This is always a dangerous thing for me to do, especially with no plan, list or directive.
I have always wanted a big letter and I have been meaning to get to doing one of these. I have seen them on so many of your blogs. All of them so cute! Yet another reason why we love blogging!

So I painted the back and side gold, then tore random pieces of coordinating paper and glued them on. Covered the whole thing in 5 coats of Mod Podge. Glued on two buttons to the side..... just cuz!


And Viola!


I hung it in my office. I'm pretty pleased, I must say!

I love the big "H" and you are really creative. I need to make scrap pages soon. I have been so into cleaning lately that my crafting has gone down the tubes.

Looking at your artwork over whelms me! Your imagination and your ability to create things of beauty can only come from someone who has a spiritual connection to a higher intellectual level; this higher level is expressed in your creations. . . . . Have you published a book about your 'Artwork'?

Heeee! Love your title!

This
H
is
FABULOUS!

I've been wanting to do a letter to, but can't decide. I may steal your idea!
Looks perfect at the window too~

No, you're not the last one to take down the tree. We just took ours down yesterday, but still working on getting the rest put away.

Those cookies are so yummy and easy. A lot of people made those for xmas this year!

Great idea about turning off the shows...that way we can always be in perfect harmony (doesn't that make you want to puke :O)? My ornament situation looks alot like your photo!
