we played hooky today.. :)

I have been so inspired by the creative blogs that I have been finding all over the place.  It seems that I can't check one blog without finding a link to several others that I want to check out.  And of course, each of them has tons of great ideas for things I want to try out.  I'm thankful that they are making me want to get out and do something! 
This is my take on Ashley's Apothecary Jars  (found here- http://shanty2chic.blogspot.com/2009/10/ashleys-fall-apothecary.html)- I used the same candlesticks, instead of having different heights, and I decided on Oil Rubbed Bronze as my color.  Turned out really nice- definitely loving the gorilla glue.  Its my entry for the 'I made it with Gorilla Glue' party.  I'll have the button soon (when I can figure out how to use it correctly)! 

I'll have to take pictures of the way it looks now, I've added some pumpkins that we painted, and one that I decoupaged.  At least, I think that's what I did to it.  I mod podge'd a whole bunch of pieces of paper all over it.  Is that decoupage or just papier mache'ing?  :D
Anyhow, there were acorns in one jar (til they got moldy when I forgot to air dry them-d'oh!), and there are some pretty but fake fall leaves in the other. 

And I am in LOVE with Lindsey Cheney's family rules canvas.  So much so that that is the first thing that popped into my head when I woke up, that I had to go buy a canvas!  :P

Off to go make my to do list for tomorrow, and then to write down all of the projects I have swirling around in my head. Cause if not, they will be forgotten and won't come back until I have absolutely no money or willpower to be creative.  Go figure.
