Whatcha Workin' on Wednesday

Remember the gourd I cut the star out of and painted mustard yellow well I just wasn't happy with it but wasn't sure what else to do with it. After seeing Cindy B's gourd light, I fell in love with it and I knew I had to make one. However I don't have all the supplies on hand to make one like her's but I did one similar using what I had. I scrubbed all the paint off and let it dry. Then I started makin it purty and now I am very pleased with it.
And next Friday when my friends and I head to the Backwoods Fest I am going to load up on gourds and make some like Cindy did. I can hardly wait.

That's about all I have for today other than the crate Wayne did for me. See him hard at work.
Isn't he just so wonderful to make things for me. This crate now hangs on the wall of our booth and holds some grubby jars and a couple hand towels. I'll have to get some pics so you can see how nice the booth is coming along.
Well thats all for now be sure to stop over and see what Leslie and the rest of the Wednesday Bunch are workin on.

  4. I love your gourd light!!! Will have to look for a gourd!! Have a great day!~Wendy

  5. that is so cool. of course, the gourd is dried so it will last quite a while. very cute. i may copy that. share the wealth, so to speak. thanks!

  6. Oh my gosh, what a surprise to hear you mention my gourd lamps...thanks you! I love what you did with your star! You are so creative and know you will come up with some wonderful ones! I was thinking how neat it would be to do a winter one with bird nests and naturals...or a snow scene with snowmen, carolers or what ever..maybe a vintage village in one... good luck..will keep an eye open for future gourd designs! thanks again, cindy B

  7. I love what you did with that gourd! I want to grow some and make birdhouses and all of those cool things out of them. MIL did it this year but we're not on speaking terms so I didn't get one :(
