A Creative Endeaver




Lately, I have immersed myself in my crafts. Almost like I have been hungry to create. My mom bought an old dirty window for $5.00. At first, we were going to clean it up and paint the wooden part. Then we decided to leave it as it was and just wash a bit of the glass portion.


Then, I rummaged around in the paints and stencils and went to work. The stencil was placed on the back of the window.


This is the finished product. A chain will be attached to the frame and it will hang on my brother's dining room wall.

I found a blog the other day where the blogger invited people to send her a sandwich bag full of found items, left over craft pieces and things like altoids tins. Then she would craft with them and place the finished pics on her blog. She did some awesome things!! I am kicking that idea around right now.

  1. That window is really cool, Mindy! Makes me want to create somethng (something other than a big fat mess, of course!)

    That's a clever way to get ephemera to create something with, asking for people to send you a bag of found items...hey that might be a neat challenge...we could exchange collage stuff for ATCs....maybe??...or something!

  3. Beautiful! I second Annie's idea. I have tons of weird, old stuff. My house was built in 1861 and never really cleaned from top to bottom. You would be amazed at some of the stuff I find. And all the downstairs windows, which (God willing) will need to be replaced soon, are old. They all have that antique, wavy glass. Come on up and get them, if you want!

  4. Dang, Mindy! That is really cool! I am impressed. (And I totally want to go mess around in Patti's house. It sounds like the houses from the books I read as a kid.)

  5. This is soooo beautiful! I love it. I may have to borrow that idea.

    Ooooh, I love your house, too, Patti! The wavy glass in my 1924 house was one reason I fell in love with it...though not all windows have it, and with a boy around, fewer do than at first.
    :P I tell him, if you have to break any more windows, please break the plain glass ones!

  13. You are indeed a crafting goddess. This is so beautiful!

    I liked annie's use of the word "ephemera" -- I think I'll try to use it in a sentence tomorrow.
