Me? Crafty?

I think so.

On occasion.  It may be rare, but it happens.

And when it does, I’m pretty darn pleased with myself.

So pleased, in fact, that I have to brag a bit.

So bear with me, and please, I IMPLORE you, feed my ego.  You know, so I feel so special that I do something crafty again…Unless of course, you honestly feel like I should explore other avenues of expression.  In that case, be gentle.  Please.

What started out as this:

Ended up like this:

I won this custom vinyl piece from Kristina at Pulispher Predilictions.  It was donated by Jessica at her Etsy Shop, Say it with Style.  

Once the vinyl arrived in the mail, I had to do something with it.  

So, I went Thrift Store shopping and found the frame pictured above for $2.99.  

Then, I rushed home and took the glass and print out and spray painted the frame.  Next, I followed the instructions for adhering the vinyl to the glass, popped the glass back in the frame, and stood back all amazed.

Yes.  It’s true.  For under 3 dollars I put together a cool dry erase calendar for my family.

Some would not call that crafty

Some would say anyone could do that.

I’d have to agree.

And then add that only I did what’s pictured.  

And I think that’s crafty.

    Looks pretty crafty to me. However, I may not be the best judge because I think that being crafty also includes making paper towel roll swords for the dudes. But still. Pretty good!
