My latest obsessions
So I'm really excited about the thrift store revamp swap I just finished on craftster. I was sent this picture.
I was both intrigued and a tad bit worried about working with a religious picture. I am not religious but I wanted to do the idea of Jesus justice- just because I'm not religious doesn't mean I have something against him. So this is what I did:
The idea came to me when I was on a fashion website with models wearing "Jesus is my homeboy" t-shirts. I thought he needed a good reason to be with his peeps.
Lisa is the only person other than Isaac (who is decidedly biased I might add) to see it yet. She gave me some lovely words of praise (get the pun) and made me feel really good about the choice I made with it! I really hope that Channon (the crafster receiving it) will like it.
Beyond caffeine I am obsessed with tiny showcase. They have the most amazing quality prints at the best prices. Most are $12.00 and mind you they are only 5X5 or so but they really are AMAZING!!! They do a new print each week and I think I am addicted to buying them! Maybe I will cover an entire wall with them.
The skull bag is coming along slowly but nicely. I am sure to have plenty of time to finish it up as Isaac left today for 3 weeks of tour. I miss him terribly already but I know he loves doing tours and will have a great time. It's just not the same here when there is no odd cassio sound or super loud guitar blaring from the back room. Luckily with laptops, wifi & cell phones I talk to him all the time but I still have to make my own coffee and miss nightly walks and snuggles! Boo!!
If your gig with the kids doesn't work out, you should consider becoming a famous collage artist specializing in thrift store revamps.
I'm not sure I could make it as a "famous collage artist" but I may be addicted to thrift store revamps!!
Sandra I too adore Leonard!! I was happy to find a great use for one of my favorite quotes!! Your danicing cow is hypnotic!!
I'm intrigued with the rest of your blog and the music site you have going on too. I'm going to bookmark your site!
Are you participating in part 2 of the revamp? If so, I'll see you around there too.
I am participating in part 2! I just need to find a picture. The one you picked is great!!
