The other day I made the trip to H0me Dep0t to find paint to match the polka dots on the sheets. I came home with three colors - a light blue, a pink and an almost grape purple. I got the little sample containers of paint. They ROCK!!! Anyway, I bought a round paint brush and thought I could make nice little circles out of it.... as long as I practiced for a bit! Well, after trying with the brush, I knew it was not going to work. I had to find something round that I could use to make the circles. First I tried a pencil eraser. I dipped it in the paint and then tried it on a sheet of paper. Not only was it too small, the eraser kind of distorted the shape. So, I set the project aside and thought for awhile. Finally today I came up with a great idea. I used the head of a large nail! It worked PERFECTLY!!! It was almost the same size as the dots on the sheets. Now, that is my kind of crafty. I did two of the letters today. Here is a picture of one of them.... what do you think? I think it turned out perfectly and looks almost like the pillow case it is sitting on! I am so pleased with how it turned out! I'm hoping I can get them all done and have them back up on the wall before Tim comes home.
By the way, my sister just turned 40 two weeks ago. Last weekend she ran her first marathon ever. She ran the Detroit marathon and after running in it, qualified for the Boston Marathon. My sister ROCKS!!! I'm very proud of her for being able to do something as exhausting as that!!! I know I could never do it. Not only is she creative, she can run too! Congrats sis!
