Learning Something New
I want to share with you something new I tried this weekend. I have always loved these engraved spoons. Normally they are made into markers for herbs, but I thought it would be fun to do phrases. So when I was visiting Anne Sutton (of Bunny Hill Designs) blog, Bunny Tales, she had the directions on how to make these and I dove right in.
I have got a long way to go to perfect this skill. Swinging a sledge hammer isn't as easy as it appears, and obviously that causes the letters not to be straight on these first few tries. I love the simple, rustic look about them, though.
My mind is running with ideas, but I need to practice a bit more. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and that Monday proves delightful.

Hi Renee, I love the spoons....I'm off to check out the site. Who says they have to be perfect? I think it adds to their charm. Happy Crafting, JennyReplyDelete
You beat me to this post idea. Ha ha I guess that's o.k. though, because you are the one who had to swing the sledge hammer. Anyway, I love it!ReplyDelete
I love your spring songs too, by the way. :)
Your spoons are adorable. And I especially love what they say. :o) You are doing a great job.

Love your spoon plant markers and the sayings are great the way they are. I can't imagine you slinging a sledge hammer either. Thanks for the link. I have been wanting to do a container herb garden. Those would be perfect for it.ReplyDelete
Also, wanted to thank you for your Sunday Scripture. It always seems to be what I need.
Are you tired of me telling you how much I love this blog?! This is a great idea. I do have Bunny Hill bookmarked, but I rarely read her blog; thanks for sharing this. I need to make some of these!!ReplyDelete
Have a great day.
Thanks for the visit. I live in the GrandHaven-Spring Lake Area.ReplyDelete
I blogged about my friend nancy who does a lot of sewing and quilting. She was a homemake teacher for years until the schools dropped that subject.
Have a nice day.
