Not sure why, but when I have unexpected changes in my schedule, I have a difficult time adjusting. Don't get me wrong, I am adaptable to most situations, I just seem to be more efficient when I have a plan. I started the day off finishing up on some menus for some upcoming Spring/Summer Events at work. Once that was checked off, I decided to snoop around the new site that my daughter Miss Sarah invited me to join.
OH MY WORD! A fair warning it is addicting. Guess who I found on there? Yup, Miss Donna.
I popped on over to her blog only to discover that she too had discovered it and had been sharing the good news. What site am I referring to? PINTEREST.com. Hold on, you thought blogging was time consuming and addicting. Combine the two and WOW. Time management, Time management, Time Management.
They say if you repeat something long enough, it will happen. I am usually very efficient with my time, this site may change that. Just look at some of the things one can find will managing ones time.
Pumpkin Drop Donuts in Burlap!
Well, burlapy looking paper.
Love my Cahartt Farm Jacket ~ BUT ~
Miss Sarah incorporated burlap into her wedding. It was a fantastic touch to her simply rustic elegant day.
She made 22 table runners and has yards of burlap left over. She and I have emailed photos back and forth with projects we'd like to do using the leftovers. I have done a few at the farm, with burlap I've had laying around. One of the first was my old cook~stove base turned settee
Miss Sarah made the pillow, I made the rest. Over the past few months I've pulled the yards of burlap I have out. Walked around the farm, hanging it here and there. Never quite sure how I'm going to put it to use. I do have plans to add some to a blanket. I love this look and think it would be great in my loft.
All the snooping around PINTEREST motivated me to once again pull that burlap out. Around the farmhouse I walked. Hanging it here, draping it there. NOTHING! Next! I have a wedding scheduled in August and the bride has requested a very unique cake. OK, I'll play around in the kitchen and see what I can come up with there. I pulled out all the ingredients, turn the oven on, pulled out the cake pans, and then the cake rounds. Hmmmm.... cake rounds and burlap....
Put away the cake supplies and pulled out the crafting supplies
No planning went into this
Claiming it right now ~ these are SAMPLES.
A 100% winged project
Tried two versions, not sure which I like better.
This one I used burlap from a failed attempt of something else that went through
my brain, held onto to the failed project thinking I might be able to use it somehow, somewhere.
Ooops ~ lost power, poor light.
Another power bump ~ will get better photos soon.
When I finally get out, I plan on picking up some spray poly to see if
it will help with the natural shedding of the burlap and keeping them clean.
What do you think?
Wrapped and Stenciled
Trimmed with braided twine
Or a mixture to compliment my mix matched every day white plates?
