Creative Juices

Staying home and finally feeling better (despite the fact that I have yet to get that SURGE of energy everyone talks about in the second trimester) has started to get my creativity flowing again.  I thought I’d post a couple projects I’ve been working on lately! 
First up, I made a sign for a friend’s classroom (it’s actually for the teacher I student taught with last spring).  She had been wanting something with the school letters (SCMS) and colors.  We went to Hobby Lobby together and bought a canvas, some scrapbook paper and some letters and here’s the final product!
Amy and I also went with another friend, Melissa, to a paint-your-own-pottery place here.  I decided to make a platter with our name on it (especially with football season coming up, you can never have too many platters!)  I really wasn’t sure how well this would turn out, but overall, I’m pretty pleased with it!  The fleur-de-lis on the sides are actual little add-ons that I painted brown and then had them glue on prior to baking it all together.  This won’t be the final resting place for the platter, but it was the most accessible holder I had to get a picture of it. :)
And last, for now, a sneak peak at the blog design I’m working on for my sister…
