Giveaway #5 winner and My Vintage Milk Jug Can step by step

I’m losing this crowd with the giveaways….I’ll stop, I promise!  The winner for the local giveaway, which is a mini portrait session and 10 prints is……ERIN LUGO in Pflugerville!  Erin–email me!!!  Trust me on the, I had to separate the local/far away comments and then count.  All other locals that commented and then book a session will get $25 off  a session fee plus a free mini accordian album with print purchase.

The winner of the “out-of’-town” landscape print is….LIZ H.!!!  Contact me and let me know which landscape print you’d like;)  Other out of towners–if you can gather 5 friends to book a full session, I’d make a weekend trip out of it…let me know!

Now, I’ve got other news that my crafting with the stars days are over, and I must say, it is a relief.  When I randomly submitted my batty wall art at the end of September, I looked at the dates and laughed because it is THE craziest time of the year for me!  Surely, I wouldn’t be selected.  But I was, and I was happy to make it to the second round…but I am totally fine to be done, and will enjoy watching to see who wins it all!  Here is how I transformed my fun milk can–I’ve been planning to do this project for months and so glad I had a deadline to finish it! Lorie from Be Different…Act Normal (check out that linky, L!) was SO fantastic to work with, and I’ve found a new local friend;)  You know how you ask a friend for an opinion and they say…”whatever, either will work” but what you really wanted was an answer one way or another? Someone to speak the truth?  She is someone who would tell me if I had broccoli in my teeth or if I asked if the dress made me look chubby, she’d tell me.  She had specific opinions in the crafts I made, and I LOVE that!  Truly a crafting star in my book!  From just one get together (with many calls and emails), I can tell that about her.  I like that in a friend.  Her blog is so fun to read because she searches over 2000 blogs (she told me) to find the best stuff and shares it.  All my style, all up my crafty ally.  Thanks, Lorie!

Now, my milk can…

I love acorns and I wanted to incorporate them somehow into decorating this milk jug.

 After–sprayed and fancified

 Glued acorns to a frame…

My hubby really thought I should enter his “acorn man”  into the contest.  Gotta say, they do have character!

Happy November!  We’ve got about 25 people coming into town this weekend for the baptism of my son.  Really, I’m ok to put crafting aside for a bit:)

  1. Ok for the record I loved your milk can. I thought the colors were awesome and of course your photography skills are ridiculous. Tell the hubs that if the last rounds theme is anything to do with acorns I am totally jacking his idea. Love you lady! Lets stay in touch alright?
