I’m kind of tapped out for words right now; I’ve been really busy working on crafts & getting my house in some semblance of order.
So, I’m going to post some pictures of what I’ve been working on.
Mother’s Day shadow box trees for my mom.
Fairy Swing for the fairy garden my mom is making in her yard. It’s made entirely from woodbine, a pernicious vine I have growing on a trellis on the front of my house.
A dresser my dad gave me. He stripped the old paint, & I filled holes, sanded & sealed it. Good nuff.
Yet another tree that went into my Etsy shop. I’ve since glued a piece of cork to the bottom to protect whatever surface
it sits on.
One of my favorites so far, this is a cherry tree I made for my nephew’s boss. I’ll be making another one for myself – SOON!
A small wall hanging I made that I’ve put in the Etsy shop. I love the leaves, they’re almost a teal color, with gold rubbed on.
And… the piece’ de resistance…
Something special for my dad for Father’s Day.
Yes, this is an old measuring tape
My grandson's handprints
A tiny tree made from reclaimed copper wire
I know this gift is a little late for Father’s Day, but Mom & Dad were out of state for most of June, so I took a little extra time on it. I just put 2 coats of polyurethane on it tonight, & it’s ready to be gifted. Dad does a lot more woodworking now that he’s retired, so I thought this would be fitting.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what has kept me so busy!
Now, I only have about 6 more projects currently in the works, so I’ll post pics of those as they progress.
