crafty weekend

one of my favorite ways to relieve stress is to create. i could spend a LOT of money at michael's, and i've tried out various yarn crafts (knitting and crocheting), painting, mosaics, decoupage and sewing. when at my last school, i'd do clay and whatever else i could get my hands on in the art room. so, when one of my coworkers wanted her daughter's room updated with some painted letters and shelf--and matching ones for the new baby coming in a couple of months--i offered to help out.

i picked up the supplies yesterday evening and painted the base coats for both of the shelves. then, this morning (with my mug of coffee there on the table), i got started on the more creative stuff.

this is the bedding i was given to match for the four year old's room...
and this is what i came up with (not yet sealed with a protectant coat)

i'll start on the baby one tonight or tomorrow afternoon...
