Well, it's time for me to get back into crafting. I have taken a few months off (due to learning to teach a new grade). I think I scared a few of my friends when I told them I didn't have any energy to craft (or any interest)! But I think I have a handle on my new classroom and a little more time and energy. So here are a few projects I have been working on. I found this "leaf beaded ribbon" in my crafting stash. I can't remember where it came from or why I would have it, but it looked like a good trim for something. So I painted these cans and added a little gold glitter to the paint while it was still wet. I added some pattern paper and then the beaded ribbon. I finished the trim with some velvet rick rack. I made the card to coordinate with the cans. I used the stamp set "Jack-O-Lantern Fun" (retired Stampin' Up). I added a little bit of the leaf bead on the card and some gold glitter.
