Omg!

Hey y'all!! Its been a MONTH since I updated??!! I didnt realize that! And I"ve been making stuffs, been quite busy in fact, lol! That time of year I know, but, one of my resolutions is to update on the ole' blog more! LOL! Let's see how that works out this year, haha!

I wanted to share something I made for my sister. She has roosters in her kitchen and Last year, I purchased a calendar that was a clearance for 10 cents...it had ALL roosters and chickens in it! Anyways, saved it all this time to make her this:


I found this wooden piece at Wal-mart and decorated it with one of the calendar pages. Finally got my nephew to bring me some old rustic Chicken wire and used a staple gun to attach it. The wood piece is painted with acrylic paints and used this stuff that makes it crackle and look old. Mod podge was used to attach the chicken. I cut it first though, then attached them. The Black clothespins are used to hang a note or recipe card from..it looks good in her kitchen! LOL! I also made these little magnets, 2" x 2":


Arent they too cute!?? I got 4 extras too! Sooo how about a bit of blog candy!?? If I can get at least 5 comments Ill give away these to a randomly chosen winner! Ill be lucky to get 5 , lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hanging with me! Hope your New Year has started off as good as mine!
