I have a crafting problem...

Hi, I'm Laurie and I like to make things. Here's some cards I made this week using swap materials from my crafty sister. Thank you, Lisa!




I also like to paint things - things most people probably wouldn't paint. Oh well... I think I'm making the world a prettier place. Here's the yard sale cosmetic case my daughter and I painted. Cute, eh? Now it matches my melon-green studio accents. Kind of a kooky color - but I like it!

I have more things to post but Blogger won't allow me, so I'll save it for another day. Off to make more! :)

Laurie - I think that color is very "in" right now. I like the way the case looks.

Love your new cards Laurie! I especially love the scalloped card and the purple one (of course!) Have you already painted your studio? So bright and cheery!!

Laura said...

I am looking at the case again....I think it needs BEES on it !

One Crabapple said...

me again ! laughing...!

Oh I did not realize you had PAINTED THAT ! I love it even more just the way it is.

I guess I misseed that part and once my eye caught the case , I zoomed down and missed that part where you said you painted it.

It is darling and I cna't wait to paint a case this way now too ! Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Laurie!
Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Are we swap partners for Heather's "Sweet Little Nest Swap" or some other one? I haven't heard anything from her yetabout who my partner is.
