To get to know some of the people that will be there, a couple of us have joined together in a craft swap.
I am partnered with Laura from The Shed blog. She will also be at SNAP this year.
The direction we were given said we had to go into our craft
We emailed a few times to get to know each other's likes. Some things she likes are cats, music, vintage ephemera, and mod podge to name a few. It was hard to know what to send. I had fun getting things together though and shopping was great! You will have to check out all the goodies I packed up and sent to her.
These are the goodies I received from Laura....
She sent me beautiful papers, vintage lace binding and a vintage wooden pedestal bowl.
Since my favorite thing to do is paint, I saw a paint project in my future!
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Antibes and gold acrylic to accent.
After painting the colors I sanded and scuffed the paint.
I wanted to give it an old look but add a sophisticated feel . I added clear and dark wax.
Then I used some of that beautiful paper and mod-podged it to the inside of the bowl.
Such a pretty accessory! A fresh new piece.
The best part is I made a new friend and a have this piece to remind me of her! Thanks Laura for the goodies and the challenge. I can't wait to meet you for real in Utah!
