I have to tell you all I have never been much into crafting. In fact I think I have always sucked at every attempt I have ever made. But lately here in blog land everywhere I turn there is inspiration. I have seen this Mod podge all over the place. And since discovering Amy from Mod Podge
rocks, I have been getting so much more inspiration. Not really knowing what it was and what to do with it, I decided to buy me a bottle and experiment.
Well today was a bitter sweet for me, and I will tell you why. I have a lot of Elle Decor magazines that a dear German friend of mine gave me before she had to move back to Germany. Her and I where very close as where our boys. I miss them so very much everyday. It has been a almost a year that they have been gone, and not a day goes by that I do not think of them.
As I was sitting at my table Mo podgeing away with all her magazines she gave me, I no sooner get finished and my door bell rings. I go to the door, and it is my friends Husband.....yes he was in the States on business and he said he just could not be here and not stop in.
WOW, I was shocked and told him what I was just doing. Now, I will say I am expecting him tomorrow for dinner, but I was not expecting him today. We both choked up a bit, reminiscing of our times together and how close are boys where. I showed him my project and I told him to please tell Elke what I was doing....
Now let me say....I love MOD PODGE! it was such a fun and easy project. I already had the terra cotta pots, all else I needed was my herbs. Ran over to Walmart and picked up three herbs I thought we would like....here is my finished little project. I thought these would be cute for Mother's day gifts, teacher gifts or just a nice to have you as a friend gift. Even party favors with name tags...the possibilities are endless I will be making more this week.
I even made the cutest little tags using mini craft clothes pins, and then I made my own labels
This picture was taken the night before my friends where moving back to Germany. Elke had been crying for a solid Month straight, it was very emotional. I miss you Elke and family!~XXX000
