I am married to the strongest man in the world!

My husband just tore a phone book in half. Yes that's right. Well, it wasn't one of the HUGE ones, but still probably 2" thick. These are the things you can learn surfing the internet! I've been out of the blogging mood this week- I couldn't think of anything to talk about and I didn't really finish anything until this weekend. Miss B put on her train conductor hat and put a beaded purse around her neck the other day and came to ask me if she looked "cool." I told her she did, and snapped a couple photos and had fun making this layout for them:
I did finally get out the paint get busy on a couple things I've been putting off- I covered a piece of metal to make a magnet board for my kitchen:

And made some X's and O's for Valentines- I think they need something else- maybe ribbon or ric rac? Any creative minds have suggestions for me?


I have discovered that spray adhesive works much better than Modge Podge for stuff like this. It doesn't bubble up and wrinkle the paper at all. I think I will spray the top of the letters with some kind of clear paint to protect them a little. These are just the wood letters from Michael's or the scrapbook store.

Wow I didn't know you had all this craftiness in you! Since I'm not a crafter, not sure if my opinion counts but those X's and O's are pretty dang cute as they are.

Katie,
What kind of spray adhesive did you use?
Really cute! They look really, super cute plain...simple says a lot! But if you add something you have to show a picture.

Okay, I thought it would do a link, but I tried to click it and it didn't work. maybe you can just copy and paste it.
