Bulletin Board Beauty

I always have a million pieces of paper conveniently placed all over the house so that I won’t lose them.  Of course I always do.  Birthday invitations, Bible study information, save the date cards, and oh-so-important coupons all seem to disappear.  So I finally decided to update an old bulletin board to keep it all together! 

This is what I started with…

This is what I ended up with… 

So much prettier!  And all my stuff will stay put! 

Colored Glass

Not too long ago I was at a friends house and she had decided to add color to a large glass vase by pouring paint inside and lightly rolling it around.  I had been wanting to try it for myself for sometime and watching her at work inspired me to do buckle down and do it!  So here is what I did.

First I bought a jar for $1 at Goodwill. 

Then I poured paint inside the jar.

I found an old diaper box with a whole to let it dry upside-down. (Note- let it dry for a long time!)

Here it is!
