Happy Friday to you all! I am off today but have a ton of errands to run and will start the day at the Jeep dealership getting one of my windows repaired. My MIL is going to go with me and drop it off and then we are going to do a little shopping and have lunch. It is so convenient that the Jeep place is across the street from Michael's and within a mile or two of both JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby! Not to mention all the other stores that we both enjoy shopping in together. I have been so busy lately with my kitchen re-do that I haven't had a ton of time in the crafting room. I am hoping to get some needlework pieces done this weekend and then once I get them framed and on the wall, I think I can call the kitchen pretty much done. I am so happy with the way it is coming together and will post pictures as soon as I get it finished.
Since I am going with a kind of retro theme in the kitchen and using some aprons as part of the decor, I was inspired to pull out one of my apron stamps by Karen Lockhart. I know I have at least one more from her and a few in digi form too. I am thinking of making some wall hangings using some apron images and coordinating papers to match the fabric I picked out for the curtains. This image was colored with Copics and I used DCWV papers.
I love aprons and even have a couple of the short ones that were made by my great-grandmother and passed along to me by my grandmother. My mom bought me a new apron for Christmas this year and when I was at Michael's last week I found a cute little apron for Samantha to wear when she is here cooking with me. If you have a budding little chef at your house, they have a bunch a cute, useable, kid sized cooking tools.
Thanks for dropping by!
