Another project I tackled last week, and I may try for more this week if the rain holds off, is spray painting my GW finds with a base coat of black. I can't spray the paint in the garage because of DH's car and it will be too cold outside soon. This way, I will have things primed and ready to go. Maybe that will inspire me a bit more. Here are a few things I worked on. I have 2 full boxes of things in the attic...my how things accumulate.
Speaking of GW. Our local store is in the process of opening up a larger store. It seems like it is taking forever, but it is to open sometime next month. I have been going to a couple of other TS lately. Things are really picked over, plus I feel I am getting more particular about what I pick up. I don't need everything. Here are a few things I have found recently. I found 2 of the candles--$2 a piece. The mug says Delaware, OH on the front so I just turn it around. The box is so ugly, I can't wait to redo it. The plate was only 55 cents. I think I did pretty well.
The kids carved pumpkins yesterday. It was nice enough to do it outside. Husky the cat decided to join the fun. He was intrigued by the little battery cutter. Notice the seed on his head.
Then he was in the leaf pile with DS. It looks like he is being choked...he wasn't too sure about that. He was willing to help with the wheelbarrow, however.
We also made caramel apples. I usually would use a homemade recipe for the caramel, but was never happy how they turned out. This year, I just bought the Kraft caramels. They have them now where they are unwrapped little caramel balls that melt in about 3 minutes. They turned out great and tasted really yummy. Sorry, there is no picture. We ate them too quickly.
Well, that's all for now. The weather this week is supposed to be warm again. They just changed the forecast--it was supposed to have been rainy. Good change!! Hopefully I can finish cleaning our bedroom and then get to work on some crafting. It seems the crafting plans always get put aside for all of the other non fun things. I really need to work more on making time for what I want to do instead of what I think has to be done. I think I may have posted that comment before. How do you all balance your everyday chores with getting all of your wonderful projects done? Maybe your tips will inspire me.
Have a great week.
