Baby, take a look at her now

I've gone absolutely crazy with my Cricut. It seems every time I go blog hopping I come away with another idea to use with my Cricut. This picnic basket was a cheapy from Target. When I looked at it in the store, I thought the basket part came off, because it has velcro straps around the top. I had all these visions of having my local embroidery shop add my monogram, or something equally as cute. Well, inside it is attachd with brads. Plan foiled! I decided to give it a run with my Cricut and some outdoor (really sticky) vinyl. Here is the before:

Cute, but nothing special. But baby, take a look at her now:

The Hubs swears it won't stay on. I promised him it will, I'll never tell him if it actually comes off.

This plate I made for my beautiful aunt/godmother for her birthday.

And lastly, this is my idea for teacher gifts this year. Both of my kids got male teachers, which is a bit more challenging. This is my first run at it, I think it still needs some tweaking.

Linking up here again this week. Go check it out, great stuff!

Goodwill Gold

A few weeks ago I made a trip into a Goodwill in Corydon that I had never been in before. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of good junk they had. I found this picture:

I know she was a beaut, but I just couldn't figure out how she could fit into our home in her present state. So here she is after some primer:

And here she is after a little Cricut magic and my favorite black matte paint.

Note: I'm not really happy with the shelf, I just stuck some things up there to take a quick picture.

I'm linking this up with Today's Creative Blog!!!
