Roll Tide!!!


I am so happy to say that I have gotten back into my crafting groove after vacation. Maybe that was just what I needed to get out of my rut. Last night, I both started & finished the Bama door hangers for me & Mom that I had mentioned in an earlier post.
It felt so good to paint & get my hot glue gun heated up again.
I hope to keep it up!

I'm so excited about this easy little craft that I'm going to go ahead & post a pic of the finished product first off...


Love! :)

So, I guess I took the easy way out on this project, but Mom & I still like the finished product. I wanted to sketch out the actual script "A" onto burlap or some material like that, but I got lazy.
I found these letters at Hobby Lobby instead:

 
I also grabbed up some pretty crimson acrylic paint
while there too:

 
I went to town painting the "A's". This shows after just one coat:


I ended up painting three coats, to give it a richer crimson color.
I used the houndstooth ribbon & bows that we had from one of Dad's gorgeous arrangements. I'm so glad we're getting to use some of the things from his arrangements. I would much rather have them to enjoy than to have thrown them away.


And here they are, in all their Bama glory...




Love that side view!

I hope to post Zach's Disney pics soon!! We took so many really good ones- my favorites are the ones of the beautiful castle & us with the characters we got to meet! As I mentioned in my last post, it was a perfect trip- we got to do everything we wanted to do...except relax. But, it was worth every minute!

And, just to stick with the Alabama theme, I wanted to include a pic that Zach took of us before the first Alabama football game
of this season. :)
