So during my drugged up sleep, I crafted. In my sleep. My mind was a virtual Pinterest board. All I "saw" was crafty projects that I "made" in my sleep. Yes, it's weird.
When I finally came out of my drugged up sleepiness, I decided to make some of the crafts that I had dreamed about. Big mistake.
Today's post is not pretty. It's about my crafting failures. Let's keep it real, shall we?
My first "crafty dream" led me to this. I decoupaged some plastic Easter eggs from the dollar store to display on the stand that I made back in October 2011 (here).
Here is what I wanted to copy.
Enter my drug-induced dream. For some reason, I used wrapping paper instead of fabric to make mine. In my dream, they came out great. In reality, they didn't.
Pathetic, I tell ya. See those wrinkles everywhere? Obviously, I forgot how thin wrapping paper was. Fabric would have looked so much better. I need to work on my decoupaging technique, haha.
The second "dream project" came from another great post (10/2011) from Brooklyn Limestone. I saw it on Pinterest and dreamed about it last weekend.
I decided to try it using a pink plastic charger from Michael's. And I tried to decoupage the center of it with the same wrapping paper that I used for the eggs. Bad idea.
I don't even know where to begin on that one. So embarrassing! What was I thinking?
The only thing good that came out of that wrapping paper was when I covered the mat in a 11x14 frame holding my son's picture.
My husband loves that picture so I did that one for him. I hate the frame color though. Any ideas on a good spray paint color for it? I can't find a color that I like.
Maybe I'll sleep on it. NOT!
