Shabby Mailbox

Hello All!

It has been such a long time since I have posted anything. Things in my household have changed a lot since then. The biggest change of all was myself going back to work full time. I do not know how people manage especially if they have children. There are not enough hours in the day! All along though, I have been working on things and so with that I am going to try to get this blog moving again. Some of the projects I will show you have been made awhile ago and some are super recent. I did  remember to track all of the products and such so if there are any questions please let me know. I am happy to answer anything I can. 

The first project is an altered mailbox I made for a swap on I joined this site in late August of last year and have been having a blast swapping with everyone. I would highly recommend it to someone looking to join a crafty community. Its been amazing so far! The mailbox was one of my favorites to make. It was my first real attempt at altering and really delving into distressed, vintage and shabby art. 

 The box was a wooden one I bought from Joann's  I painted and distressed it with acrylic pain and gesso to get the faded wood look. I used lace and flat back pearls from Joann's as well. The paper is K and Co. The flowers are colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

That is all for tonight but stay tuned for more projects. I promise there are many!
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you!

Happy Crafting!
