This is a project I've been working on for the last few days.  I bought this table for $10 a while back and finally got around to rehabbing it.  It is the first time I decoupaged fabric on a piece of furniture and there are some goofs but I love it anyway.

I am determined to use craft supplies that I have since I have so much for my projects, so everything I used was on hand.

This is one of those personal post that I've done in the past.  I don't do them very often but this month has been an interesting month for me.  I finally did get my sub floor and then put down the tile in my second craft room which is fantastic.  I moved all the stuff I wanted back into it.  I did de-stash quite a bit and threw out quite a bit.  It is bad when you have so much stuff that you don't know what you have so when you need something you go buy it.

I also at the beginning of the month stopped my anti-depressant.  The great news is for 3 weeks I felt really good, I had energy and wanted to get stuff done.  The bad news is my mood swings are back and I feel I better go back on it.  This is one of those Catch 22's but I am determined to keep up with the forward motion.

On the Lupus front it has been in over drive.  The pain is constant and I feel so bad for my sister because she has Mixed Connective Tissue Disease with all kinds of pain too.  I wish I could take it away for her but at least we each support each other.  I know there are lot of you out there with these diseases and I pray for everyone.  Everybody hang in there.

I've been seeing all kinds of book page wreaths so this is my spin on one.  I painted the white in the middle of the loofah brown for the center.  It is a bit bigger than I really wanted but I cut the round cardboard piece too big and once I discovered it was going to be huge I just kept going.

Just to let you know too.  There is a sale at my shop for 10% off your purchase at my shop through 7/4/17.

This is a wreath I just finished and most of the pieces and parts came from my favorite store....Dollar Tree.

These are lanterns I made from Dollar Tree frames.  I used this tutorial from Mark Montano:  Dollar Store Frame Lanterns

Did you know that during World War II knitting was used for codes.  I saw a post in one of my groups and wanted to check it out more and found several articles.  I think this is amazing.

Here are some of the articles I found:

QI: How knitting was used as code in in WWII

Knitting in code  first article on the left

Historical Craftivism, Knitting and WWII

Those are just a few but they are interesting.

Wow!   I can't wait!  30 more rows and I'm done with Winnie.  For a baby blanket it is huge.  This will be something he can use when he is 10 on  a single bed.  LOL.  I'll post a pic when it is done.  Sooooo many projects including replacing the floor in one of my craft rooms need to be done and I'll be able to work  on all of them.
