Welcome to mine & Gilby's new makeover!!! Veronica from VK Design Co. did an AWESOME job with our blog, we just LOVE it & hope that you do too!!! Veronica is an amazing designer & just a wonderful person, Gilby & I are a little challenged when it comes to technical things & making decisions. Veronica was there to see us through everything & more, you should stop by her website to see what other wonderful blogs she has done, but I have to warn you, she is in high demand, but well worth the wait, we just love her to pieces!!!
Take a peek around & you'll notice certain things are worded a little differently here..hmmm, I wonder who's idea that was??? he,he
Gilby & I wanted to celebrate this big day & thought what better way to celebrate than to have our first ever Doggie Walk with SUPER TALENTED crafters & lots of Doggie Treats!!! As I said before, we are a little challenged on the technical side of things, but we had some GREAT people help us, one in particular was the Queen herself & Princess Penelope, they were such a great help to us along with some of the other bloggers on the Walk. I just want to thank you all again for all your help!!!
Our theme is "A Makeover", so I asked everyone to have their project or whatever be something that has to do with a Makeover, whether it be a scrapbook page that they weren't happy with (which was on my list) & wanted to give it a makeover or something they had & wanted to give it some pizazz. So, you will see lots of WONDERFUL projects & maybe some furry friends along the Walk & hopefully they will inspire you to give something a makeover, maybe even yourself, I know I need my hair done something fierce right now (that's why there isn't a picture of me yet on the "About me" page)!
Gilby recently went & had a makeover, not a good one though. Daddy disagrees, but we will be changing salons next time! He almost didn't want to make an appearance, but thankfully it has grown out some, so he feels better. The before picture is up to the left & here he is after his Makeover! Still a cutie, just with shorter hair!
All taken in my Craft Room
I started 3 projects, but only ended up with half of 1 done, unfortunately time was not on my side! :( This is an old canvas's that I painted for my craft room about 6 years ago, I really liked it for a while, but it's been needing a Makeover for quite some time. I have a magnet board on my wall but have always wanted one of those boards that you slide cards in or picture, so I thought why not make this into one of those? There is another one that I am doing the same thing to & will connect them somehow. I definitely learned somethings doing this one that will be helpful on the next one, first get a new staple gun & make sure you have enough ribbon!!!
First off my oldest son is going to kill me with his picture up here, that was taken 4 yrs ago! He looks much different now, wears contacts & has a shaved head (Air Force), you can see Gilby there as a little pupster. :o)
As you can see, I took off the canvas from the frame & covered the frame with black fleece that I had. Then I put the canvas back on over that. I added several layers of batting so it would be nice & soft. Then I covered it with ribbon, had planned on using a different color w/the red, but of course I ran out! So I made due with what I had. I'm not completely happy with how it turned out, but that's also because I waited until last night to finish it! Can we say procrastinator???!!! lol, Not really, just really busy! There are lots of you-tube videos about how to do this, but they are mostly for regular bulletin boards, same general directions. I would go with the regular bulletin boards if it's your first time, it's probably a lot easier!!! lol
Now on to the FABULOUS list of crafters you'll be stopping by on your walk!!! These gals/guy are sooo EXTREMELY TALENTED you are sure to see some AWESOME projects!!! I was soo HAPPY when they said they would join in on the celebration, as I LOVE their blogs and they are truly wonderful people!!! Make sure you stop & leave some luvin' on everyones blogs for your chance to win some yummy Doggie Treats, hang on we'll get to the treats! :o)
