The "Pratts" Poultry Lamp

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.

Remember the "Advent Ironing Board"?

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!

Ironing Board Advent Tree

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.

4 Quick Round Greeting Cards


I used the "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More" Cricut cartridge, & the "Talking in Circles" stamp set by Stampology. Inky edges & they are good to go!

"Its a Wonderful World" Turtle Card

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.
