Michael’s Haul

I walked into my local Michael’s Store just going to kill some time and see what was new on the clearance aisle….this Michael’s happens to be going through a remodel so to make room for stuff they bagged up their clearance and sale items into huge grab bags and marked them for $2.00  I bought all the bags but one that they had on the floor….going through one bag I was in heaven…so much crafting stuff…I added it up in that bag alone was over $500 worth of product and that was the prices on the clearance stickers.  So I am super excited to see what the other bags have to offer…..  I think this has to be the world’s record on major hauls… LOL  18 bags of crafting, decor, toys, etc….all for $38.97.  Here is the pic of my SUV loaded.  SCORE!!

DIY Canvas Art

I have been wanting to try some canvas art. A little scared of ruining some photos but finally took the plunge. Here are two that I did tonight…Two of my favorite photos. I have a much larger one of my husband on our wedding day that I just love and didn’t want to pay the high cost of framing, etc for the photo. So I took the plunge and tried this project.

I have been playing around with Mod Podge lately and have fell in love with it…If I could Mod Podge everything in the world I would…it is just absolutely FABULOUS. The projects are endless with Mod Podge..and I love discovering new or not so new ideas (but hey they are new to me).

Here is my Mod Podge Canvas Art…

I used matte one the photo of us holding the champagne glasses and I used glossy on the one with us kissing.

I put a couple of layers of Mod Podge on the canvas and then laid my photo down…let it dry for a few minutes and then a layer of Pod Modge over the photos.




This was the easiest project I have ever done….and now I am going to figure out more ways of making other canvas “art”….
