Confessions of an “all but” hoarder ūüėĮ

Hi, my name is Teresa, and I am only a few steps away from being a hoarder. ¬†Well, in the case of craft supplies at any rate. I was having a hunt through my craft area in search of paperclips. I have a large document to post (yes – snail mail!! Who does that?) And it really needs to be clipped into sections prior to enveloping. So – where else would you look in a house like mine, than the craft area? I know there’s clips of many other varieties in my stash, but I couldn’t for the life of me ever¬†remember seeing paperclips. I told my DH about my dilemma, and he said – “we must have, we have everything” (See prior comment about craft area!)

A picture of restraint

Quite literally – Okay, so we won't mention that I only went in to buy sheets . . . But seriously – only one Caron Cake!! Check out Inside Crochet Magazine Issue 88 and look for the Daphne Shawl. I'm planning to adapt that pattern to fit the stripes of the Caron Cake and if I put it on the internet I have to do it 😳

Right, the craft shop are gonna start charging me rent if I don't leave the carpark soon. Have a great day peoples.

Faux Leather D√©coupage Frame

Leather look frame using rice paper, brown paper bags, and (of course) Mod Podge . . .

Despite all of my best intentions, I still really haven’t sunk my teeth into decoupage. This leather look decoupage technique could be applied to a variety of items, not just frames I’m sure. I’m thinking something along the lines of a whole desk set for an office, a set of coasters for the man cave, a set of placemats for the dining room table, etc.

Check out the¬†tutorial over on Amy’s Mod Podge Rocks¬†blog where¬†“Man Podger” Walter¬†breaks it down into steps for you
