Have my fellow US bloggers put out their patriotic stuff yet?
But I'm gonna today.
I love when the house is decked out in red white and blue...
It feels so festive!
Like my little feather tree?
I made it the other night with some with some supplies that I bought at Michaels.
lots of hot glue sticks,
patriotic doo-dads to decorate with
A cold glass of beer.
Yes, sometimes I like a good beer when I am feeling crafty.
faithful professional Miller Genuine Draft drinker would say that my beer is nasty.
I had intended on punching the feathers through the Styrofoam, gluing them in as I went along.
~ to much work!!
It was easier just to glue the feathers to the surface of the foam.
I started at the top.
And worked my way down.
Once I had the basic pattern, I went back and added more feathers where I needed them.
Then.. it was time for accessories
~ which, as usual, I went a little crazy with.
And here it is all finished. ...
I think shes a cutie.
While I am pimping out the supplies that I purchased from the greatest craft store ever.. ( and my work place ) Michaels,
Have you guys seen the promo's for the new show called Craft Wars that starts next week?
You can check out Craft Wars and take a closer look inside of the closet by clicking on any of the Michael's links ~ Don't forget to sign up for their coupons while your there ~ Using them is as easy as printing them out OR pulling them up on your smart phone.
And now that I have successfully given Michaels some free advertisement..
I believe that I deserve a raise.
Be sure to contact Michaels and tell them that Leslie, the Spoonful blogger from Baltimore, is awesome and she needs a raise ~ a big one! : )
( Yes.. my bosses are faithful Spoonful followers)
