We almost all have them and should all have a place to share them!



A Painted Door Mat

The unofficial start of summer is here, FINALLY!! 
I am excited to be able to be outside in the yard and the weather has sparked my creativity again!! Yippee!!
 I went to the Dollar Tree this week and bought this rug.

It was not very pretty and I thought it needed something.
So I grabbed my paints and some clip art, and my projector.
I taped the rug to the wall and projected the image I had chosen on the rug. 
I traced it out on the rug with a marker, then painted it with acrylic paints.
Here is what it looks like!
Awesome!! : )
(My kitty helper in the corner, she is always willing to give a helping paw!)

I love the way it turned out, especially for $1.00 you just can't go wrong!
I may just have to try a few more!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!
