READ! My Craftventure

July 23, 2012

Now, I may have mentioned this before… but “crafting”… yeah… not so good at it. I didn’t inherit that gene from my mother, who just happens to be a master seamstress/crafter extraordinaire.
That being said, I decided to put on my big girl pants and head over to Hobby Lobby.
E-GADS!
Fabrics, paints, furniture, doodads. WHAT IS THIS PLACE!?!
I didn’t even know where to begin or what half the stuff was… but I was on a mission!
I had seen these READ letters all over the blog-o-world and it seemed like a craft I could tackle. I mean… buy 4 letters, paint them… c’mon Susan, you can do this.
So, I did it!
My inspiration:
{Melissa & Nicole @ Lesson Plan SOS}
{Alicia @ The Bubbly Blonde}
And now… after many mishaps and re-dos…
Drumroll please……..
TAH DAH!
Yeah, that’s right, black-on-black chevron! [Of course, this happened on accident, after trying to cover up a mistake lol, but I ended up liking it!]
I’m probably supposed to explain how I did this, but all I did was buy the letters and the round wood pieces, paint them, and glue them together.
EZ-PZ lemon squeezy!
Also… the A & D look like the same color in the pictures, buttttt they aren’t. The A is way more tealish green and the D is blue.
There we have it. 
My first CRAFTVENTURE and I have to say… it wasn’t so bad!
Now I’m off to check out all the other marvelous crafts!
Link up with Tara and show me what you’ve got!
