Scrapbook Challenge #14

Scrapbook Challenge #14-Play Around with Circles

My favorite book, 52 More Scrapbook Challenges by Elizabeth Kartchner, is one of my faves because each challenge is like a fun homework assignment to push me creatively. It is my goal to try all 52...and it is super fun :)

Spring Wreath

Gosh, it has been an extra long winter in Minnesota, and I'm having spring fever really bad. I gathered my sticks on Monday, and by Tuesday, the ground is covered in snow, yet again.

This project used supplies I already owned and you might as well. It is inspired by another blog posting I recently saw.

Sticks from the yard
Glue Gun
Green Craft Wire
Needle and Thread

Before and After: Chair and a Half

Before Picture

Here is my chair I found at Savers one morning after swimming--only $25, a great shape, but in sad fabric condition.

I decided to try one of those prepacked slipcovers from Kohl's, and even though I was wary, it worked out surprisingly well with the help of my seamstress mother, who reworked the seat cushion to fit snug.

Using a Slipcover is Easy!
