This week, I got my Christmas arrangement finished up. Yes, the one inspired by a blogging sister, out there in blog land. :-)  I ended up not making a wool Gingerbread, but used a vegetable dyed fabric for the little guy. Those chopsticks they give you with take out Chinese food was perfect for this. I just glued a set of them to the back of my Gingerbread man and then was able to poke it into the foam base. Who knew???


As for the base, I started off with a paint bucket (from Lowes) that I glued (with E6000)  to a plastic charger plate, that I found on clearance at Michael's Craft Store. Have you ever used these great spray paints?? It covered beautifully. Heck if I had had a "used" paint can for this project, it would have been perfect, but if I start collecting anything else, my hubby will have a coronary!

I've got a wine rack, I want to paint as soon as the weather gets warm enough. And now that I know just how wonderful it covers, I have... and ...  and...

                                                                               :-)

So on that note, I want to thank everyone who participated in the Quilting Gallery Blog hop. I do hope you found as many great blogs as I did. Whew! My reading list has sure grown. There is and such great talent and inspiration out there. So read on my friends and put all that inspiration to work for you, I know I am going to! 

                                                      Take Care!
