|Pay no heed to the white furniture,|
they will meet their fate soon enough.
I intend to do some pretty lighting of some sort above the mirror. Need all the light I can get while I'm covering dark circles, and adding color other than death by "washable" markers. :) Anyhoo... check out what I am working on to add some glam and family fabulousness to the area:
It's just one set of 8x10 pictures, but that was my cutting my teeth on a new crafty idea. Here's a closeup:

First of all, I made two sets in one day. That should tell you how easy this project is. My pictures are matte, and my step mom's are glossy. Both worked well, so don't fret if you have one kind of photo finish and not the other. On my set, I did place the pictures face down on wax paper with the mod podge on it. After they were face down for about five minutes, I was re-reading the instructions and realized that it was supposed to dry for about a minute before I put them down. So up I pulled! And they got a texture on the front that wasn't what I wanted. It's not bad, it's just not what I wanted. Check it out:

|Easy assembly for the ribbon... just use a staple gun!|
I've been dying to use my staple gun ever since I bought it. In fact, I was doing a crafty thing the other day and actually stapled my craft to my dining room table. My husband laughed... he knows who he married. So when I got the chance to pull my shiny new staple gun out so I could properly attach the ribbon to the pictures I did the happy dance. This was so quick and easy, I looked around the house for something else to staple. My husband quickly grabbed it from me and saved all of our furniture for a poorly planned fate.
So there it is! Like I said... my corner isn't complete yet, but it's getting there. And now I have a place to put my "face paint" so it doesn't clutter up the bathroom sink.
