Made it Monday

I love Mondays, and I love making things.  I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for Made It Monday!

Let me apologize for not taking photos of the whole process and posting them.  During this entire project, my hands were covered with either Mod Podge or blue paint (or both) so I wasn't able to take photos.  One of my good friends is getting married next weekend, and we have having a bachelorette party for her.  The theme of her wedding is "Sail Away With Me" and so we are keeping with that theme for her bachelorette party too.  My friend Alex is throwing the party, and she asked me to help make a sign/painting.  She found this post on PINTEREST, and we used it to make this painting...

I started by covering a canvas with newspaper using Mod podge.  Then I placed letter stickers to say "Sail Away With Me" over the newspaper.  I painted over the letters and newspaper with blue paint.  When I removed the letters, you could see the newspaper underneath!  We will have this next to the gift table during her bachelorette party.

While I was painting, Alex was busy making little garters for us to wear during the party!  They are made with lace, fabric, and buttons!  They are adorable, so proud of you Al! :)

After crafting, a group of girls watched the Bachelorette together, and just because I think I am funny, I MIGHT have tweeted this to Jef with one F.  Because I knew Kristin would appreciated it, I definitely emailed her this photo during the show. :)



  1. So cool Michelle! We are thinking about doing a "Tank it Tuesday" because we can't ever finish anything we've started for the Make it Monday!!!

  7. Hi. I am also very attracted to creativity and I love to make things with my own hands, as it not only gives pleasure, but also pleases my neighbors. By the way, I would like to know how you feel about interracial dating? I am now also concerned about the topic of online dating and I found an excellent article with recommendations on this subject.
