Today was craftily productive for me. I can tell not only by my finished projects, but also because I’m covered in glitter from head to toe, and my hands have bits of glue all over them.
The first project was inspired by mine and Todd’s initials. We jokingly call ourselves “T-n-A.” I bought the styrofoam letters at Michael’s months ago (they were $1 each). Two weeks ago we went to IKEA and found small shadow boxes for only $2.99 each. I covered all three letters in blue paint, then slathered them in glue. I added Crafty Chica Bollywood Blue glitter to Todd’s “T”, tiny stars to the “N”, and Crafty Chica Glamour Queen Green glitter to my “A.” I then added some stars to the T and the A, too. Todd found some cool black glittered paper at Michael’s, which I cut to fit the shadow box. I mounted each letter off of the glitter paper by hot gluing tiny spools to the backs of the letters and placing them in the middle of each square of paper.
My next project today was a Remembrance Shrine to Annabelle. You may remember that we had to put our family pet, Annabelle, down on January 18, 2010. She was 15 1/2 years old, and had given my family all those years of love and loyalty. I wanted to create a visual reminder of how special she was and still is in our hearts. I created this shrine as a surprise for my parents and Logan for when they get back from their cruise this Friday.
The last thing I created today was a Good Luck Shrine. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it…if I’ll keep it for myself or give it to someone. We can all use a little good luck!
