Hugs and Kisses from Craft Goodies!

Happy Tuesday all! Hope your week is off to a great start.
I for one, could not be happier to be here. I love this fun little month called February and LOVE that our Crafty Sisters went with a Valentine's theme this go around cause I'm really digging what I made--but I must tell you, I totally stole this little gem.

I have several amazingly talented friends, one of which works with her husband to refinish furniture. They are the ones that can take that really sad looking "free" dresser that was at the curb and turn it into something to die for. She's that good, and that awesome, so of course I let her be my guide on this project.

She created these amazing wood signs for Christmas…

True to me, I went big--something for the front porch. I used a side board from am armour that had seen better days as the base and cut the x’s and o’s from 1/8th inch mdf.  Painted the board and x’s and then used flannel to roll and roll and roll enough rosettes to cover the o’s. It was great, mindless crafting while watching late night tv. Then just glued it all into place on the board and done!

Don’t you just love having inspirational friends? I sure do! They surround me at home and here online, thanks again, ladies for another great month here at WYLTC…hugs and kisses to you all!
Happy Crafting-
