Altered Paint Cans

Did you know you can make ugly paint cans beautiful? And it is not hard to do. Mind you, I did these a while ago but they still make great gifts.You can purchase cleaned paint cans from your local hardware store for around $4.00. You will need ribbon, beads or no decorations for the handles. I found the beads at a craft shop. ModPodge works great for adhering the paper to the can. The pink can was made with Breezy Designs Baby Bree scrapbook kit paper. The wedding can hearts came from Breezy Designs and the paper and ribbons I had. All you have to do is pick your color scheme and pattern paper. Cut the paper (12x12) in half. Oh, and it helps if you make a template so you can get around the handles without taking the handle off. My husband helped me. ModPodge the can a little at a time and not the paper was helpful to me. Slowly adhere the paper and get the bubbles out. Stay in a well ventilated place as the smell can be overbearing. Decorate your can. You can fill it with party items or anything at all. Makes a great gift for any occassion. Let me know if you have any questions or show me your latest altered paint can creation.

Scrapbooking and Colonoscopies

Yes, ladies you heard right. I know it is an embarrassing thing but as woman especially 50 something, I would encourage you to go get a colonoscopy. I put it off for a year because of the anxiety. There is no family history of colon cancer in my immediate family. However, to my surprise, I found out I had a polyp and it appears to have precancerous cells. Of course, it was removed and sent for pathological testing. And I have to go back for another one in 3-5 years. While the prep was disgusting and made me not feel well, I am glad it is over and the bad cells were removed. Yes, the prep work is worse than the procedure itself I am told. But, for me it took the entire day to recover. I did go out for breakfast afterwards but I still did not feel well for the rest of the day. So, I took it easy and rested. Should you decide to go through with it you will need to take someone with you because you will be given a general anesthetic. While you are preparing for this momentous day give yourself a reward for going through with this - buy yourself a scrapbook gift as a reward for a job well done. Also, to my surprise it is recommended that my kids now be screened when they are 40. God Bless!

A Christmas Present

This year I really couldn't think of anything I wanted or needed for Christmas. Sure, there are the everyday things that I like and could use but nothing really stood out to me. I came up with this idea, why not have a bigger place to scrapbook. Even though I talked to Scott and he didn't seem interested he still gave me money towards my Chrismtas present, the basement project. So, I have saved all my birthday and Christmas money. Not that it would cover everything, it doesn't but God has provided amazingly some low cost things including labor. Hopefully, it won't be long and we will have a nice quiet place scrapbook and enjoy each other's company. Check out the pictures below to see all the progress that has been made. It is amazing the transformation that has occurred thanks to Scott, Josh and Ward and of course the Lord.
