Hey everyone--it's been a busy week with starting preschool and kids sports and back to school nights. I worked on a few things. Today really flew by--spent a little time catching up on other's blogs (me time!). I met with a designer today who bought a couple pieces and wants me to do more for her. I made this quick shadow box. I used two frames that were different sizes and glued them together. Then I painted them, sanded and stained them. You can do this with three frames too of graduating sizes. The one hint would be to make sure your top frame has glass for it. This one didn't, but I thought, no problem, I will get another piece that I have. Turns out the opening on my frame was an odd size. I finally found one that fit, but it just barely covers it. I had a hot glue mess going on that you could see, so I glued the velvet ribbon around the edge of the glass. The silverware was my grandparent's. I still have to put picture hanging wire on the back. It's definitely a quick and easy project and much cheaper than buying shadow boxes.
Tonight was the first home high school football game. We won in overtime. It was cold!! Eldest son suited up but didn't see any playing time--he's just a sophomore. Here's younger son with his buddy all ready to cheer on the team--go Panthers!
I wanted to share with you a quick dinner idea that we had tonight before the game that my family loves--BBQ chicken pizza (sorry no pictures). Use your favorite dough recipe. Here is mine: http://bec4-beyondthepicketfence.blogspot.com/2008/05/bread-baking-and-awards.html Spread dough with BBQ sauce, sprinkle with real bacon bits, add shredded rotisserie chicken (from Costco) and pineapple tidbits. Top with mozzarella and bake at 400. It is quick and yummy! Let me know if you try it.
