So, I have always had a love for decoupage, or Mod Podge. It all began in high school and I carried my love for Mod Podge into my college house on Bemis. My roommates and I decoupaged vases and pictures in order to add a little decorative flavor ro our college house. To be honest, it looked more like kindergarten work, but we enjoyed it for an evening craft.
I have since Mod Podged stuff for Belle's room. I made letters with her name, and some random crafty designs for her wall. I seriously think that this stuff is the best.
So, my crafty self was itching again today. Often I will take this itch and crochet something, but today I really wanted to make something cool for my house. Therefore, Mod Podge was needed! I went off to Michaels and bought a few things. I came home and Paul was unsure what to make of everything. I had black paint, a wooden letter, a wooden plaque, a file box, and some jazzy paper. In the end I Mod Podged some pretty cool items, which I will post pics of soon. Michaels didn't have everything I wanted, so I had to settle for what I could get today. I created a plaque with the initial "T" on it over some cute scrapbook paper. I also created a cute new file box for me and Paul's mail. Our last system was messy and I hated how it looked.
My college roommates will attest to my love for Mod Podge, but I promise that my skills have improved. I will post pics soon of my newest creations :-)
