Best Purchase of Summer

 

 

 

 

Mod Podge is an amazing product. I love it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first project was an attempt to create magazine holders out of cereal boxes and sprucing them up with fabric. I used left over paint from my bedroom to cover the majority of the box designs. They turned out great…except they aren’t wide enough to hold 8″x11″ paper…whoopsie daisy on my part.

On another note, my brother graduated high school recently and I’m in the process of binding a quilt I made as a wedding present for one of my best friends. It was my first quilt that I made all by myself…okay I had a tiny bit of help from my mom, but not enough to make a huge difference. The quilt is a surprise…shhh. My friend doesn’t know this blog exists so I’m not worried about having her find out. I can’t wait to see her reaction. Here is a picture of part of it.
