I bought this wooden lamp at Value Village, painted it with "Emerald City" FAT paint, distressed, & waxed it with their clear & dark wax. This project looked best with a heavier coat of the dark wax. The shade was "Modge-Podged" with a 1924 poultry book that I found in the walls of my house when we renovated.

After Christmas I was trying to figure out what to do with the Ironing Board.
So I decided to use red & white bakers twine & mini clothes pins to make a photo display!

I had this idea to turn an antique ironing board into my advent calander this year.
First I gave the old ironing board a coat of ebony stain.
Then I added the envelopes.
I am very happy with how it turned out.
I used my Cricut Bags, Tags & Boxes cartridge
to make the scalloped envelopes with some antique looking Christmas paper.
I also added some burlap, & stamped the numbers.
Filled them with small gift cards, jewellery, candy, & things like little post it notes & pens.
Whatever I could find that was small enough to fit into the envelopes.

Its a wonderful world....Because you are in it.
I used the "Pet Shop" Cricut cartridge, The "Because of You" stamp set from CTMH for the sentiment, & "Dog & Pony Show" stamp set by Technique Tuesday, for the turtle.
