Gettin' My Craft On

I got busy today with that awesome scrapbook paper that I got at Hobby Lobby (LOVE).



I took some small wooden pieces that I found at Michaels. The circles are 5" and the squares are 4".

Spray painted them flat black and sanded the edges.

Then, I used my Cricut to cut that awesome paper to fit the wooden pieces.

Then I again used my Cricut and the Home Decor cartridge to cut a fleur des lis and a chandelier for the round pieces.

For the square pieces I used little metal peices with sayings that I found in the scapbook section of Michaels.

I think I am going to add some ribbon to hang them with.

I also want to tell you all, my friends, of a really stupid thing I did yesterday. I got up at 5:30 a.m. got ready for a 12 hour shift at work, went in to work, worked 8 hours, and then the supervisor realized I wasn't scheduled to work. Yup, you read that right, I worked 8 hours on a day that I was never scheduled to work!!!! And, the kicker is... I won't even get paid for it!!!! Oh well.
