Canvas Friday

Happy Friday folks!
I think we need to call out a search warrant for time, because it's gone...the weeks are literally flying by, and I can't keep up! Seriously! Where has the time gone to??

Ok..So my week zoomed by. Here's how my week went, in a nutshell:

Last weekend was spent in preparing for my SIL's baby shower. Here is a  pic of the banner, made with my trusty Cricut:

My gift was received very well.



Yep--a diaper motorcycle!! Jen loved it, and so did her hubs....along with all the other guests. Everything in the motorcycle can be used for the baby, so that's great!

Ok--onwards--work the next day was grueling. I mean, wow---what a few weeks can do to your system. I was ready to go to sleep by 8:30 that night. Not to mention that I had rope burns on my biceps and in my arm pits. Ever had that happen to you?? Let me say, it blasted well burns!! My boys 'conned' me into doing the tire swing challenge in the Monkey Park, which is like an extreme adventure obstacle course at my work.  What the heck was I thinking?? I did the challenge (and on my first try, unlike SOME people--so HA!), but yeesh! I am still sore! lol I must remember that I am not 20 anymore!!! But we all had fun.

Now, it's Friday, and I did a challenge for Unity's Friends with Flair. I stepped out of my box, kinda. I played with Gesso.....very intimidating for me. I broke out one of my newer Unity stamps,and made a canvas plaque for my DD's room. I love the saying on the stamp, and it is something I want my kids to remember always.

So, Gesso, and my Distress Paints, and inks, and my trusty heat gun, I went to work. I absolutely hd no clue what the heck I was doing, but I was going with the flow....and I like it!

I had loads of fun...even though there are some errors...but it's creative freedom! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Be safe. Get crafty.
