Granny Says…

Granny says that mixed media is great!

I’ve been very stressed out lately because of all the packing I have to do before I leave for Evansville in about two weeks. It would be a little less hectic if I wasn’t going on a camping trip in Malibu for five days right before I leave! I literally get back from the camping trip and three days later my mom and I will be on our way to Evansville, IN.

So how do I fix this stress? I make things. This thing in particular is made of fabric, frame, and bottle caps.

Bottle caps? Yes dear reader, bottle caps. I’ve had a love affair with SweetLeaf Tea&Lemonade since finals week. Their bottle caps have ‘Grannyisms’ on the underside and I think they are absolutely adorable! I just haven’t been able to throw them away. So I hoarded them in hopes that I would find a use for them some day. That day was today.

This was a very fun project that employed copious amounts of hot glue! Now I’ve just got to figure out what to do with it. Do I gift it to someone, keep it, sell it? If you have an opinion, please feel free to leave it in my comments!

I hope you enjoyed it!

Have a stress-free day! :)

M&L Spoils

Here on the West Coast, there is a fabric store called M&L. It is located on West Ball Road in Anaheim, CA. It is fairly far from my house (an hour drive!) so my mom and I go every once in a while, and when we go, boy do we shop!

The reason we make such a long trip is because the fabrics sold by M&L are fairly cheap! The cheapness is the reason we splurge a little… Or in my mom’s case, quite a bit!

My total was about 50 dollars, and my mom doubled it for her purchases!

Here are the fabrics I bought!

Yes, this IS Snow White fabric that reads ‘Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?’ And other Snow White quotes.
Adorable pumpkin fabric!
A Rudolph story book panel that I will be turning into a door decoration!
Some lovely 90s-esque sweatshirt fabric that I hope to turn into a fashion piece.
Some lovely gauze like fabric that I also hope to turn into a fashion piece!
This is a fleece panel I bought to make into a tie blanket! I’ll post pictures of it once I’ve finished it, I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my spoils as much as I enjoyed spoiling myself!
Have a good day!
