Decoupaged Chefs

I love to decoupage, I do it a lot. I like to use Mod Podge from Plaid (gloss luster) it's a glue and sealer. Here is a project I finished recently, it's a wooden pedestal I created from two pieces of shaped and finished wood that I bought at Michaels, I glued them together and painted. Had lots of fun painting it with a whimsical flair. I then cut out the chefs from wall paper trim and decoupaged it onto the top of my pedestal. Very easy. I have a chef theme in my kitchen so it fits right in!

Wall Photos

This is my is my idea of displaying family photographs. I am not one to have pictures all over the house, so I decided to display pictures on one wall. This are of my 2 granddaughters. I had my hubby frame a large part of a hallway wall and I painted within the frame, then I bought cute picture frames and placed them all within the larger frame. I call it my "Wall of Babies".
Next I will have my hubby do the same on another wall down the same hallway with pictures of our grandson!! Can't leave him out!!! I am very happy with how it has turned out.


This is Dixie...she is one of three born. Isn't she adorable?! I will take pictures of the others later. She was born Jan. 21. Her mom is a white Siberian Husky and the dad is.....well.....a cross between a Terrier and German Shepherd.
