Framed blackboard

For many years I have had a love for these old frames I know most people paint them in vibrant colors, and normally I would approach them in the same way. But something about these frames makes me change my mind every time I think about customizing them.  So I leave them as they are and use them to frame unusual objects instead.

My first frame I used to frame this cd-shelf from IKEA. This time I framed a blackboard that’s going to hang in my hallway where whoever feels like can draw, write messages and words of wisdom on it.

Candy pillow with owl

Time flies, and yesterday it was my nieces 16th birthday. She had just given her room a makeover and anted a pillow to mach. To compliment her choice of color I decided to sew a round candy pillow. It was accompanied by a small owl.

Owls has a tendency to multiply in my house, so it won’t be long before I have to write about its sister, brother and long lost cousin.

9 marching elephants

9 elephants, and then I were tired of making them.
My plan was to get rid of some leftovers by making pot holders. Sadly I overrated the capabilities of the insulating material I bought. The elephants will therefore be used as mug rugs instead.

New cartoon wallets

The process is time consuming but finally, the new stack of cartoon wallets is finished. There were exactly 30 of the in a combination of Calvin and Hobbes, Tom & Jerry, Disney, The Hulk and Lucky Luke.

What remains is the image processing before I can start listing them on Epla. (Norwegian Etsy)  But the image processing will be a challenge this time. I had to admit defeat and get a new computer. The reason why I put up with the old one for so long was that it had an original Photoshop version on it. I got the program from a former employer a few years ago so I had no product code or CD anymore.

I have therefore had to use the free program Gimp. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this program. Considering the opportunities it offers it’s quite amazing that its free. But its not Photoshop so I’m missing some features and the things I don’t miss takes a lot longer to get done. (And a little longer becomes a lot longer when you multiply it with 150 + images)
