I'm Jessica, the chief hoarder crafter here. I love to create and I love to take photographs but not necessarily at the same time so I apologize if not all of my DIYs have appropriate documentation. My favorite craft projects are giving vintage items a new life. Closely followed by creating things for my 3 nieces, who are the light of my life. I'm engaged to my ever-patient fiance, Josh, who puts up with all of the things I "rescue." We have two fur-babies, Lucie and Dolly, who have a mutual love of food and a mutual hatred of one another. I love coffee, all things pink, owls, and especially my Buckeyes and I can't wait to make something fabulous from my next thrift store run. Interested in something in particular of have a genius idea I should try? Just let me know: email@example.com.
I purchased these cute blank signs from Target--here's what the original item looked like. Then I created a stencil using 631-this is removable vinyl. I chose removable vinyl mostly because I had ordered a large number of a color I didn't intend to use again and had extra, also it works great for things like ceramics where you're worried 651 permanent vinyl won't remove easily. The key for me was USE TRANSFER TAPE. In the past a majority of my bleeding has been from the centers of the letters because I was individually placing them by hand and they weren't sealing properly. Transfer tape not only removes me individually placing letter centers, but it also gives you a better seal. Just take an old credit card and burnish your transfer tape FOREVER. I mean, burnish until you think there can't possibly be any bubbles under that piece of vinyl...and then do it some more! Then peel up your transfer tape...and voila! This is the paint I decided to use. It'…
Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use). Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200. I want one. However, the question is...can I have one? Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe walleye...no that's definitely not it...you know what I mean...but are they legal in this state? Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets. Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets. World's most expensive pets: Green Monkey: $16 millionMissy: $1.2 millionCapuchin Monkey: $10,000That's right. I said LEGAL! There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it! Buy your monkey! Need a less feminine monkey? Try these guys! De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000
I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.
Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.
