The Kids' Chess Table

My son loves playing chess and will beg anyone for a game.  As we are currently building a new playroom for the kids, I felt they should have a nice table to play chess on. 
This is not really a paper project, but I did use paper on it!  I found an old table my husband made when he was in school.  It was not being used, so I painted it.  Then I cut squares of paper and Mod Podged them to the top.  A coat of sealer was the finishing layer.

How could anyone not love to play, now?

More Wooden Letters

Hello people.  Having a good day, I hope? 

I recently made these wooden letters for a cousin's baby and thought I would show you.

I'm quite pleased with how they turned out:
Oh dear, the picture looks a little blurry here.  It's hard to see the details, but the N has a stamped image of an airplane and some buttons and twine; the C has his birthdate stamped on a banner; the O has a kite flying off it; the L has "look out world" stamped on it;  the A has a button; and the S has some more twine to finish it off!  Stamps and ink are from CTMH of course:)

New Idea Book Artwork

Hi Friends!  I though I would share some new artwork with you today.  It's going to be a shower gift for a shower I'm going to tomorrow, so it should be safe to share it today:)

I'm so happy with the way it turned out, I just want to make some more!  I got the idea from the new CTMH catalogue and adapted it to fit an 8x10 frame.  I spray painted the frame white and gently sanded some of the edges.   The stamps, ink and embellishments are from Close to my Heart. 
 I sure hope the new mommy likes it:)

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day!
