There is all kinds of fun stuff going on today! My dear friend, Renna at Finding My Knitch, let me know about the I-Made-it-With-Scrapbook-Paper-Party over at Jen's Sanctuary Arts at Home blog. I decided I would join in on the fun and post the podium I made for Sunday School! I had an old sinking music stand that was too anemic to hold my Bible.
I found some beautiful scrolly podiums in the antique stores, but they were way out of my price range. Then, I discovered the podium below sitting outside the Goodwill Store. I paid $5.00 for it, and loaded it up proudly.
Yes, the bottom of it was kind of gross. My sweet husband fixed that up for me with a new block of wood.
Lots of fun scrapbook paper later...lots of Mod Podge...and I have a new sturdy podium that is cute to boot!
I enjoyed cutting words out of magazines to add over the top of the scrapbooking paper.
I then added a little embellishment to the top with a prayer I pray (silently) before I get up in front of my group to teach. I want so much for our group's time together to be meaningful and life-changing, and not the all about "Melony" hour.
This blue hurts my eyes on my computer screen. In real life it is a soothing sea blue. Oh well...you get the idea! My kitty below was fun to make with scrapbook paper.
It's also First Friday Flea Market over at Miss Rhea's Sweet N Shabby Roses blog spot. There are some great girls with lots of shabby goodness up for grabs. Please go visit.
(Attention K-Mart Shoppers! Miss Kitty has found a HOME!)
I am determined to find a home for my scrappy Miss Kitty! She has "poysonality plus" and needs a new home before Christmas!
She is a big 11x14 original painting with scrapbook embellishments...patchwork pants, button, and even a little dimensional purse. She is gallery ready, which means Miss Kitty is ready to hang in that little girl's room, pediatricians office, or day care center playroom.
Miss Kitty is $30.00 ppd. in USA! Just post a comment here and let me know you have a spot for her at your house. She doesn't eat much, I promise.
