6 months or so ago, I was reading a book that my neighbor lent me, Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. Good book, by the way. Different from most books, but in a good way. I kind of enjoy something different now and again. Anyway, the cover of the book had this cool swirly, viney, leafy thing. I’ll post a picture below of it. I liked it so much, and thought I could do something with it, but didn’t know what. So, I took a picture of the cover and threw it in with my ‘painting inspiration’ folder.
Yeah, I’m weird like that. Not naturally creative.
Anyway, so there it sat for months. One day I was standing looking at my wall mural and I glanced over at my grocery list. It’s one that I got from my mom a long time ago, it’s made of wood and has wing nuts holding a stack of papers for lists. It’s nice cause you can use any paper you have. I was thinking I could do something with it, and then I remembered my picture of the book and BINGO!
Then, on a last note, I added an ‘S’ for our last name on the pencil holder. I used a touch of white to highlight the right sides.
PS. I have my lap top and am *mostly* caught up on my internet life. I still have to bookmark all my favorite blogs, and get caught up on all of them. *ugh*
That’s just gonna make me bake…..and gain a few pounds.
