Back to blogging...

I know I've been gone for a long time, but real life seems to be calming down a bit now so hopefully I'll be back to blogging on a more regular basis.  I noticed that there are now 101 followers, which is amazing!  You guys are the best :)  I'll take the time to do introductions soon as well.

For today I just wanted to show a few of the craft projects that I'm working on right now.

Project #1:  Of course I'm still working on the 1:12 scale saloon.

Project #2:  My parents recently had the windows in their house replaced.  This particular window came from the attic, which was my old bedroom.  Their house was built in either 1952 or 1954 so this window is close to 60 years old.  My concern of course is lead based paint, so I will take the proper precautions.

Here's a view of the inside.

So on to my idea - I'm going to use chalkboard paint on the actual window panes and I'm going to sand and paint the trim white.  I'm thinking I'll hang it in the kitchen and use it as a sort of menu / bulletin board.

Project #3:  A couple of week's ago when Michael's was running a 50% off coupon I finally gave in and bought this bottle cutter that I have been wanting to try out.  I have lots of ideas for this one :)

Anyway, those are my current projects.  I'll post updates soon.  Happy Sunday everyone! :)
