recycled smutt...

I took this pic with my phone, so sorry it's not all that and a bag of chips... not that my pics ever are. LOL

This is my before pic... I am still working on it and I will post another pic tomorrow or the next day when it's all done. This is one of those projects where it just always seems to need one more thing. I just really wanted to share it cuz I love it :)

Onto the good stuff. I saw this tutorial... I'll share the link later or check it out in my SCS gallery. The link to that is on the right. I used one of those smutty trashy novels for my wreath. I can't tell you if it was a good story or not because frankly I never read that book. I don't even remember where it came from. I think it was a yard sale find with a box of Stephen King books. I am more of a James Patterson kinda gal now (though I admit to reading the Twilight series too.)

I edged all the sides of the book with a dark brown cats eye. It really adds definition to the pages. The tutorial used a painted edge. I can't be bothered with painting when I can just dab with an ink pad.

who me...

I haven't been very crafty this summer, but with school starting I hope to get back on the ball! I am working really hard at organizing my craft room and that too has been helping with my creativity. So, maybe you will be seeing more of me these days... both of you!

Teachers are always requesting gel hand sanitizer and I thought it would be fun to deck these two out. Who am I kidding, I was cleaning up some projects from... well, I don't even want to tell you how long ago! and I didn't want to put the apple paper away so instead I whipped these two simple beauties out. The bottles are slightly tapered and that was the hardest part. These were easy peasy!
