Me? Crafty?

I think so.

On occasion.  It may be rare, but it happens.

And when it does, I’m pretty darn pleased with myself.

So pleased, in fact, that I have to brag a bit.

So bear with me, and please, I IMPLORE you, feed my ego.  You know, so I feel so special that I do something crafty again…Unless of course, you honestly feel like I should explore other avenues of expression.  In that case, be gentle.  Please.

What started out as this:

Ended up like this:


I won this custom vinyl piece from Kristina at Pulispher Predilictions.  It was donated by Jessica at her Etsy Shop, Say it with Style.  

Once the vinyl arrived in the mail, I had to do something with it.  

So, I went Thrift Store shopping and found the frame pictured above for $2.99.  

Then, I rushed home and took the glass and print out and spray painted the frame.  Next, I followed the instructions for adhering the vinyl to the glass, popped the glass back in the frame, and stood back all amazed.

Yes.  It’s true.  For under 3 dollars I put together a cool dry erase calendar for my family.

Some would not call that crafty

Some would say anyone could do that.

I’d have to agree.

And then add that only I did what’s pictured.  

And I think that’s crafty.

    Looks pretty crafty to me. However, I may not be the best judge because I think that being crafty also includes making paper towel roll swords for the dudes. But still. Pretty good!

    I think we may have the same craft ability. My projects are few and far between, but when I accomplish them, it feels awesome.

    That looks GREAT!

    Well if you're not crafty, you certainly are thrifty! LOL. It looks great. We have one too, get the fine point colored dry erase markers, one for each member of the family. Mine is too small to write who's doing what, so I just know who it is by the color, and you can be brown. LOL.

    I think that is fabulous and you are very clever for thinking of it. I'm crafty and I probably would have been scared to try something like that. I'd be afraid I wouldn't get it on straight. Good job, crafty lady!
