These little guys were selling for something like $4 a piece, which I thought was kind of crazy, since the only thing I didn't already have at home was the buckets. Lucky me, I found some later that evening at Hobby Lobby. Seriously, for my first time there, I did pretty awesome finding good stuff to craft with. So needless to say, they were 1.99 there and I had to grab up 3 so I can make a few of these cuties.
My next inspiration actually came from my older sister who lives in an area where they have this awesome TruValue store (which I have never gotten to explore yet) which carries the usual hardware stuff but also has some awesome country craft items. So I get this picture message which includes this fun piece of crafty love.
I immediately texted back "Is that a hint?" She told me no, but I have a feeling that she will be recieving one in some format from me, at some point in the future. The possibilities are endless with what type of base you could use (wine bottle, spaghetti sauce jar, hurricane glass..etc etc) and once again my clear love and bias toward burlap is showing through.
I haven't quite gotten to make either of these yet- but I have been training pretty hard for my LLS Team in Training run which you can read more about the process @ Tiny Thunder Running which I update pretty regularly with my workouts and runs etc. I have also been pretty busy getting everything together for my fundraising effots as well. I have added a widget in my side bar to make donating easy if you are able and willing to support me in this endevour.
I will hopefully have time (seriously people!) to get some crafting and scrapping done Sunday. I do have a long run tomorrow morning and a dual 31/Pampered Chef party tomorrow afternoon but Sunday is WIDE open (as far as I know haha) and I really hope to get into a grove again.
Have a great weekend!!
