Yes, I am very behind on my posts here, but the good news is, I’ve been very, very busy! I just finished doing three local craft shows with my PetMats and am happy to report that they were well received. Of course, as soon as I got that venture off the ground, I got three new wall jobs. The wall work is now consuming all of the my time, so I will not be able to add any new PetMat designs or get my KidMat designs out until early in the new year. I am excited about the mats and want to be sure I can devout the time needed to these.
More about the new wall work jobs in upcoming posts.
I did take a few minutes to start getting my house ready for the holidays. Using one of my favorite stencils from Royal Design Studios, Kimono Allover, I stenciled my windows with Glass Wax. Remember Glass Wax? It’s hard to find, but I did find some at my local Ben Franklin’s. Melanie is running a web special for snowflake stencils at the moment. I did place an order earlier this week for some Moroccan stencils, so will be receiving my new, free, snowflake stencils shortly! I used the Kimono OverAll stencil for the Holiday Cat PetMat above.
Next, I tackled my chalkboard backsplash. For this, I just cut out a template, traced and colored in.
While I was doing all of this, I made myself a latte, adding a snowflake design with the Stencil Library’s snowflake pattern. 🙂 They have some great Holiday stencils on this site, so be sure to pop over there for a look!
I also trotted out my favorite little Grinch for Holidays!
