January 17, 2013


Having sooo much fun with these Valentines Day projects!
PROJECT #4 is.....a U & ME banner.
I used music sheets again for this project (they are cheap and VINTAGE so perfect
to use in projects!).
 I searched "pennant template" on google and chose the shape I wanted for my banner then copied it
in to a word document,  printed it, cut it out and used it as my pattern.
Next, I cut 8 of the shapes from my music paper and 4 from cardboard..layer these so that there
is a cardboard in the middle which is covered back and front with your pretty
music paper..then glue them all together (a glue stick will work just fine).
Stencil your words, punch holes for your string to go through
and there you have it.....
 I'm head over heels in love with this vintage radio cabinet I picked up while out
thrifting......it has 3 coats of Annie Sloan Pure White that I got here..waiting
for some nicer weather to get it sanded and waxed.
 The vintage gold leaf candle holders are absolutely to die for and were
found at a garage sale.
 I also did a LOVE, NEST AND HOME banner in the same shapes.
 Happy day....more Valentines Day projects to come (I think I have
about 14 in total!!!).

Hi Janis! I just got my computer back from the shop. I was lost without it. Your projects are just wonderful,too. Just wanted you to know I was still around and doing extremely well. I think I have a new record for that. lol

I love that radio cabinet! I have one similar, but mine didn't have the grate/cover on the front and it has a shelf. We use it for shows and I can't tell you how many times someone has asked to buy it! It's perfect and your banner is so sweet, I love the "love" garden gate too! Your creations are always so pretty... love,t.xoxo
