UPDATE: Life or Something Like It

When I'm busy working on several big projects at once, sometimes I let my normal blog posts slide. Honestly I haven't felt very inspired to write about fashion stuff. That's perhaps because I've been doing that for many years and though I still have some material left to cover nothing has really grabbed me. I do have some ideas drafted, waiting for supplies to arrive or the mood to strike. Just one of those things I guess. However, I have been busy working on projects in conjunction with Craft Test Dummies, Fairfield World, and a blog hop. Here is a peek at what I've been up to lately.

On November 4th, I took Alex to our voting poll like normal. It's at an elementary school, so we took advantage of the playground. She did most of the playing.

I made this bag for the Robert Kaufman Fat Quarter Face-Off. It didn't win, but I'm ok with that.

In conjunction with a Mod Podge Furniture product review for Craft Test Dummies, I made over two matching nightstands. They don't match anymore, other than structure, but they do make the bedroom a bit more special. One is silver and glittered...mine of course.

For my husband's nightstand, I decoupaged crumpled and torn tissue paper onto it, painted it black, and sealed it, for a faux leather finish.

I reviewed the Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe Gloss for Craft Test Dummies. I made a few fancy gift items. I'm hoping they hold up to the dishwasher. They have to cure for about a month before I can test them further. A follow up post will happen in a few months.

For Veteran's Day, I shared this photo of my grandfather's WWII uniforms, that my parents recently gave me. He was in the army.

Of course, I can't forget my kitty helpers. Here is Pippi in an empty box of Poly-fil. She's a fan of boxes she can fit in, as she's a large cat.

Sophie kept me company while I was finishing this mug warmer wrap for Fairfield World.

She also kept watch of my interlining for the makeup brush roll and bag that I created for a Handmade Holiday Gift blog roll that's coming up next week. Below is a peek at the outside of that roll. The tutorial for this will be on Monday.

That's all for now. Back to working on projects and writing tutorials.
