Craptacular, Craptacular!!

I'm in a craptacular mood, again. And I ain't afraid to show you the way I can take any ole (even the awesomest) of projects, and totally jack 'em up. I'm all about keeping it real. So, onward!

I saw a sign at the beloved Hob Lob, and I thought to meself, "Self, Dad's got to have that in his workshop." It made me laugh and laugh. . . but it was like soo small. Wha? So I's all, I'm gonna make this myself.

Now I like how it turned out over all; I love the crackle effect. But. . .

what the?

Can I put anything on straight?? Come on! Is there a "crooked" sickness? 'Cause I have it. I cannot hang, cut, write, draw, paste, etc., anything straight. Geez.

Secondly, Valentine's Day.

Now, these are just like eating Tums. Am I right, or am I right?

Hey Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind.. . .

Those conversation heart sayings get me singing all kinds a songs. Don't even get me started on "Please Forgive Me" (I know not what I do. . . .)

Anywho, I's all like: yeah, man. A conversation heart wreath. So I made it.

And I only burned myself with hot glue like 8 or so times. That's it!

But then I's all, it needs a sign and stuff.

So I made one.

There.

Sometimes I'm all, "Ooh me likey!" And sometimes, I'm just like, huh. Craptacular strikes again. It just depends on me mood.
I've got all kinds of other interior desecrations to show you. But that's for another day, my friends.

I like your wreath. I think it turned out cute. I usually burn myself more than 8 times so you did great. ha ha.

LOVE the sign for Dad....crooked or not!

(Warning: Crazy alert.) Ok, I know everyone thinks conversation hearts are nasty, but I LOVE them. Or LOVED them, because all I can find around here from Necco this year is pastel-pink bags full of new colors and awful new flavors (which will save me a whole lot of calories in the next few weeks). But your hearts look like the regular old ones, and now I'm wondering if they're still out there somewhere? (You're looking at your screen with your nose wrinkled, aren't you?)

Love the wreath though. Genius!

Draw on some Bullets Woman! You need to singe that sign ;)

Connie said...

Oh so cute wreath! Wonderful job.

A small level...that's what I use when I need a straight line, cuz I have the crooked disease too! My dad has one with a laser...thought of stealing that once or twice.

Love it...that wreath is so cute!! I don't like them hearts either. But I do like the cinnamon lips (like a cinnabear). YUM!

Hey, did you get a vinyl machine or the cricut that cuts vinyl? Do you have the program that hooks to your computer to cut whatever you want?

I Love the gun sign! I think it would be cute with bullet holes in it.:) I Love the valentines decor too! I am going to TRY to make the fabric ribbon wreath. I will keep ya posted.

My husband desperately needs the gun sign! I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one that can't hang ANYTHING straight! Before we even got married, my husband and I got in our first MAJOR fight over trying to hang some decorations in my apartment. I ended up using some choice explatives (which I NEVER use) and then had to apologize for a week!

The wreath is really cute...I bet I would have eaten about a zillion little hearts while making one. hmmm. Maybe I should make one. =)

I was so inspired by your wreath I not only went out and got those hearts, I also included it on my post of Valentine's inspirations with a link back here... If you want me to remove it, just let me know. Thanks.

Thanks for putting into words what I thought but was not sure of. The idea of Restoration is to restore the INTENT of the founders. Not return to the days of the founding. The slavery issue was a compromise with the back-knowledge of slavery ending over a period of time. The same went for universal sufferage, the founders new it would be corrected over time
