Grrr. Arrgh.

I knew I would leave out a Christmas card. Joyce Ann, I am so sorry. I really did love getting this from you!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Isn't it festive and, most importantly, glittery. hehe


We recently bought some cheapo coffee (that was yummy) at Big Lots. I loved the vintage look of the can and for a while was putting whatever brand we bought into the can. Since then I've changed to a nice glass jar but I still like the can. Nick, my older son, is amazing at making stencils and spray painting designs. Today he surprised me by taking the can into his room and tracing the design, making a stencil and making this great canvas board of my coffee can. It looks just like it. I should have taken a pic of the can. Nick took this pic with his camera.Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting It's actually more of an olive green with orange lettering than shows in this photograph, but you can get the idea. I have it on my coffee shelf with my french presses and tea pot and tea tins. Maybe I'll take a pic after my birthday in March. lol

Ok..enough for today. Goodnight guys.

I can see why the can appealed to you. And I'm really impressed with your son. A sweet and very arty thing to do for his mom!

What a lovely thing for your son to do - time is so precious that it means a lot that he gave his. Great tin too.

As to the pics - I have a faithful but taped together 2mp camera and have found that daylight is the solution.

Have a great day.

Lisa - love the glittery card Joyce sent you.

And I agree with Colette Nick is a lovely and thoughtful young man. What a great thing to do for his mum!

I agree with Julie that daylight is a solution to clear photographs. I take my pics in my sun room in the mornings and they turn out clear and light. We want to see every detail of your art :)

Your blog is a highlight of my day Lisa. Love seeing what you have been creating. And reading about your life.

Dotee xoxo

What a sweet son! That turned out very cool, too. I'm just getting caught up on everyone's blogs and saw the knife Tim made and your cool bubblewrap hanging tag. What a creative family you are!
