We survived another weekend...whattayaknow! I'm ready for the week to begin ~ I've got some {fun} stuff planned!

OK, so I said I'd show a pic of the scarf, and I'm a chick of my word, so here you have it...

I was gonna post a pic of myself actually {wearing} it, but...I didn't take a shower today and didn't want to subject you all to my {funk}. You're welcome. The tiny people are thrilled with my creation and have requested scarves for themselves, so it looks like I'll be picking up some pink yarn this week.

Also this week, the project I hinted at yesterday.

Here's a pic of the Pottery Barn subway art that started this whole thing in the first place. See those words in the middle-ish of the canvas? Two words. "Bowling Green". Those of you fortunate enough to be from the midwest....or even better...{OHIO} know that Bowling Green is a city in Ohio and the home to Bowling Green State University ~ which is my alma mater ~ and the Hubband's. That's where we met. When I saw those words I started thinking about the places in BG that hold meaning to me & the Hubband, and writing down the street names of those places. I've made a template in Photoshop, so I know how the words will fit together and what font/s I want to use. So {hopefully} this week I'll be able to grab the rest of the supplies I need so I can knock it out.

Other plans for the week include figuring out what the heck to do with the London Broil that now sits in my fridge. {Thoughts?} I'm still thinking about those doggone Molasses Cookies. {Frick.} I have a ka-ton of laundry to deal with ~ and of course there's the usual cooking, cleaning, erranding, kid-corralling, etc. that happens every day. Should be fun!

And now, it's back to the {glamour} of folding laundry ~ and yes, it's 12:45 am. Gotta get it done sometime, right? Have a great day, everyone! :)


  1. Beautiful scarf! You did a great job! Love the color. What yarn did you use?

    Can't wait to see your next work of art. It looks like a fun and beautiful project!

  2. Yea BG! I have a few friends I could probaly hook you up with some sales! Very cool scarf too, I cannot get it down. Maybe this year, but I doubt it.

  3. I don't know anything about the yarn, Rach - it was in the stash that was Grandma's. I'm sure she'd be thrilled that I actually used it!

    Oh, Em, trust me - if I can do it, you can do it! I'll have to find the links to the tutorials I used - it was sooo helpful. Nag me or I'll forget! ;)

  4. I want to make a poster like that too now!!! Are you getting canvas and painting it black? Will you hand letter or is there an easier way to do it? Spill! This could be a really good husband birthday gift!

  5. Jeanne - I picked up some black paint & I already have a canvas, so I'll probably do that first step tonight or tomorrow. The tutorial I saw showed the words printed out in highlight mode (so the paper is black & the words are white) and she just cut the words out and modpodged them onto the canvas. You can see where the paper is b/c there's a difference in texture, so I'm not sure I want to do it that way. I'm trying to figure that part out now. I might print the words out and cut out each individual letter, but then there's the issue of making sure they're totally straight. I guess we'll see. I'll dedicate a post to the project and show how I do it, for sure. :)
