Sorry bout that….

19 Apr

So I haven’t been in a creative slump but I have been in a picture taking posting slump. Sorry about that. I will try to get out of the funk. But finals are coming up soon, so I might be a short bit right before that then I’ll leave again. 🙂 Oh and I’m looking for supplies for my giveaway!

Giveaway Soon!

7 Apr

So, WordPress doesn’t have followers like Blogger does. So instead of 100 followers giveaway, I’m going to do 100 posts. I think 100 followers would take me forever to get anyway. Right now I’m on 92 posts, well this makes 93. So get ready, it’s almost giveaway time. It’s gonna be something that I’ve made and your gonna have to pay attention and comment when it is announced. So, which one of my former project would you like?

This might be my most favorite project I have ever made. I love it so much.

Isn’t it awesome!! I found the tutorial for the this at a blog called the Giver’s Log. One of the best parts? The tiers are interchangeable and collapsible.  It was super easy, cheap and I love the way it turned out.

Here are the supplies I used. The biggest thing is to get a candle stick that has a hollow center. So here is an excuse to go thrifting. I took Dan on Sunday and he loved it, so it looks like I have a new thrifting partner! I know you are jealous. It’s ok, my husband is amazing. Then the next big thing is to get an all thread, drawer pull, and nuts and washers that fit your all thread. I got all of that at Lowes for dirt cheap. Then you just get those cheap plates from where ever you want them from. The first ones I got from Wal-Mart, the second ones I got from Target and the third set I got from Michael’s in the Dollar Bin.

It’s important to tape the center before you drill it so it doesn’t chip. The cheap ones from Micheal’s still chipped a little when Dan drilled the holes for me, but the center candle stick/top drawer pull covered the chips so it wasn’t a big deal.

I spray painted my candle sticks so they matched better. I tried to find a nice semi neutral shade, but I couldn’t go too boring.

Here is the second set of plates.

Those plates are the same size but the first two has a small plate on top and a large plate on the bottom. I like those the best, but the same size looks good too. Here it is from the side.

I love it so much. And since my kitchen is so small it will be easy to store since it collapses!

On the second day Part 2

Another thing that we did was tie die these eggs. Heh, tie die, like we used silk ties. You can find the instructions for the tie died eggs from a blog called Our Best Bites. Ours didn’t turn out nearly as good as these did, but they were pretty cool. Plus we died a few wooden eggs, and they turned out decent too.

Here are the wooden ones.

This is my favorite.

It was a great weekend! I can’t wait to do it again.
