Been a busy little crafter

The last month or two I've been really rather out of it mentally - so as I posted about before, I've been doing a lot of reading, and now to mix things up, I've also been doing a lot of crafting.

^ I wanted something Oscar the Grouch related, so I painted a Sucrets tin that was holding various coins from other countries - so now they're being guarded by the Grouch ;)

^The above is a shelf I picked up from a garage sale for $1 and decided to fix up for my 11 year old brother-in-law who loves Stargate to showcase the clocks he collects. The following are the resulting changes:

^The sides feature chevrons from the Stargate itself - he really liked it!

^ I made antique labels for all my herbs in the kitchen - they turned out awesome!

^ Finally, I made a Bob-omb lamp from Super Mario (Nintendo) for my friend Jeff - it took quite a lot of work, but I love how it turned out and so did he :)

That's a lot of fun crafting! I'm getting into the same mode, working on a lot of different stuff. I like that you can do such a wide variety.

Those are some great crafts. I especially love the Oscar tin! Cute! I found your blog today and see from the most recent post that you are taking a break. Hope you are feeling better...depression bites!
