Crossing things off the "craft list"

This weekend was sort of a continuation of my Friday... so I ended up getting a number of things done:

1) Rabbit and chick cut outs (posted here):

They were easy to start, not so easy to finish. Used double tack adhesive paper for the first time and it went okay, but I have little pieces of paper stuck everywhere. Some of them turned out a little "busy," but they didn't have a great selection of paper at Michaels.

2) Pike Place Market blueprint painting (posted here):

I started this one on Saturday and finished it up (FINALLY) this morning. I wasn't entirely sure how it would turn out, but the more and more I painted, the more I was liking how I would turn out. I do need to get some painter's tape to clean up the lines on the top and bottom, but it's basically ready to be hung up!

And my favorite part? The fact that they have large areas dedicated to pickles and doughnuts.

I also want to get the map done as well before I hang this one up, so it might be awhile before I actually show these bad boys on the wall. But I'm excited anyway.

And on Saturday, the bf and I took Freyja to small dog play time at a local doggie daycare. She's okay with other dogs; not aggressive or anything, mostly just terrified. But that's why she needs to do something like this occasionally.

At first she was stuck to one of us like glue...

But eventually (and hesitantly), she made a few new friends :)

Hopefully, your weekends were as productive :)


  1. Glad to see Freyja out making some new buddies! That must have been a great time for her...

    Love how the Easter decorations turned out. Since I'm going to be heading over to Michaels myself I may need to get some supplies to try this myself.

    The Pike Place blueprint is fantastic! I like how they have coffee and butter, of course. Can't wait to see how the map turns out.

  2. Your completed projects turned out beautifully! Freyja looks like she let down her guard and enjoyed some doggie play time!

  3. I'm very impressed - the blueprint painting is just wonderful! I love blueprints too and wanted to use one in a collage I'm brewing....I had just thought about going to an engineering reprographics shop to buy excess or discarded copies. I hope it works. Your painting, however, is so much better. Love the subject of the composition too.

  4. LOVE THIS! Come on ova' and link up to my Linky Party! xoxokara
