Tuesday was my day with The Scrappy Girls. We went on a field trip to our favorite scrapbook store in Berkley, Scrapbook Territory. Afterward we had lunch and did a little snooping around Crate & Barrel and I found this. It's a cupcake stand but I thought it could hold embellishments in my studio instead (although it wouldn't be too bad if it was always filled with cupcakes, either). And yay! It was on sale for only $19.99. Sold!
I felt like it was just asking to be painted black, so all-too-eagerly I grabbed the spray paint. I might actually need some kind of 12-step program for spray paint. It's just soooo much fun. Maybe in another life I was a tagger? who knows. I wish I had an actual spray booth but had to settle for my large deckbox covered in plastic- it's not pretty but it does the job. I'm sure my neighbor thinks I spend way too much time out there humming to myself and spray-painting things!
Next I had to find little containers to hold the embellies. After a dozen unsuccessful attempts (everything was either too big or too ugly) I grabbed a canning jar. I have a million of them. Perfect! The little baby ones nestled right inside the wire 'cups'.
