I am not a home decor blogger. I am horrible and capturing those key moments in the making of an item. You know key moments such as umm. . .the before. I also miss the during. I am thinking I could get away with not capturing the during if I at least captured the before. I have three projects so far that I have no before pictures for. Not one. I am thinking I could use PhotoShop for one (maybe two) of them and make a before with minimal effort but that would be going against the entire essence of the "c" in SCP--if you need a reminder. . . that "c" is for crappy. So, I guess once I get around to posting the afters you will have to forgive that there are no befores.
Since I haven't even taken pictures of the afters for two of the projects I will share photos of two other items. I went to a group dinner with SS last week. At the dinner we exchanged cards (I made 16, I received 15 different cards back) and there was an altered 3D item swap too. For that we each placed our item on top of a card that was face down on the table. A card was then given to each of us and we received the item on the card that matched the card in our hand.
Here is my 3D object. Since I was on such a roll with decorative balls I figured I would carry that through to this project. Now KLB and SS want to make some glitter balls too. While the making was messy it was not difficult so I told them I could oblige. I made the glass hurricane from a vase and a candlestick that I purchased at thrift stores then glued together with E6000.
Here is a close up and description of the decorative balls. (If you can't read the labels, you can click on the image to see it larger.)
All of the balls in the hurricane came from one package of styrofoam balls I purchased at the dollar store.
Here is my lame ass card. We were supposed to use red, black, and white for the cards and it was to have a play on words. I made the sheep (even the feet) with punches. I then added some chunky glitter to the base in the hope of giving it a little fluffy look (I think I failed). I should take pictures of some of the other cards and prove to you how lame ass it really is. I really will do that since there were a couple pretty spectacular cards.
There you have it. That is what I have been up to the past week.
