Apartment Crafting

So I've been crafting like a fiend trying to get my apartment all settled. Here's what I've been up too:

First up, my bumble bee themed kitchen.

These cute little bumbley bees were actually an etsy purchase. Buy some of your own here.

Some recovered canisters to hold my pasta and rice. Idea from here. I think I'm going to change out the knobs too, to some pretty black or yellow ones. ^_^

Cool shelf. Idea from here. I love it, and can't wait to get some cute canisters to put on it. I think I'm going to add more hooks instead of the jars, so I can hang hand towels on it.
And now, to my tree/bird/odd stuff inspired living room:

A fairly large airbrush painting that's hanging above my sofa. Had alot of problems making it, but now that it's on the wall I absolutely love it.

And finally, one of two end tables. That's sheet music decoupaged to the top of it. The table itself was a cheapy $14 white table that I felt needed some modifying. More pictures once I get the second one done.
And that's what I've been up to friends. ^_^

Custom Order

Here are some paper weights I did as a custom order for someone on etsy:


And these are the boxes I put them in, stamped with my wonderful stamp made by craftpudding.

Echo was going to help me...but then discovered this empty shelf and took a nap instead.
-sigh- It's so hard to find good help these days. ^_^

Mario Mushroom Coasters

I'm so happy to finally be able to talk about these!

I've been working on these little guys for eons now it seems, but I think I've finally gotten the pattern worked out the way I want it. I'm so happy with them! ^_^
And, they are finally up in the shop!
