The end of the week is near and I HAVE to finish teacher gifts!
PLUS I am updating my Etsy Shop today! As soon as this is typed! (YES! This item will be posted as well!)
I just got the last of my Strawberry Jam (Thanks to Paulette’s mom!), so I’ll be decorating the jars, and printing off MORE Pack a Picnic templates I’ve also already started on my next month’s samples So my “behind the scenes” life is crazy.
I have had a hard/emotional week after the loss of little Ethan Weiman. Alicia’s Caring Bridge update helped me through yesterday.
So I poured ALL my emotions into this little umbrella. It was great therapy.
I love you Rain or Shine
I love this shape, and think it would be so cute hanging on a door, or in a girls room! I hangs at an angle. Adding the tag and little umbrella, I think makes it totally perfect-o!
I also decorated the edges with the patterned paper. You NEED to make sure ALL sides of your projects are clean and finished!
I then added ALL those adhesive pearls! OH MY! I don’t think I’ll ever try that again! LOL! BUT it’s all about the details, and end results! A true labor of love! I think this took me 3 hours! LOL! But, I took my time, and just kept my mind busy.
Love the details and I think it was well worth it.
I adored the MDF shapes I bought a few months ago at Say It With Letters!Now Im NOT affiliated with them, I have just had a blast using them. I was introduced to them byJulie Masse, when we went to Stamp New England!
