The wonderful world of Mod Podge

Who ever knew that something that looks like this:
Can help to make something like this:

 Thanks to my friend Anne, I am now a Mod Podge fanatic! We started our project on Friday night, around 10p.m., and I didn't end up leaving her house until 2:00 a.m., and I still wasn't done! I was so obsessed about finishing my project, that I couldn't sleep, and finally crawled out of bed to finish it at about 7:00 a.m. So, after 5 hours of sleep, and relentless sanding and painting, it was done! To my defense, the letters take longer (plus don't forget my perfectionist ways)! You've got to sand and then paint, and then glue, and then sand, and then modge podge. Phew! I remember how much I like to be crafty, and as long as I have an outline of what to do, it's great! I used to scrapbook all the time, and one or two pages would usually take me 2 hours to complete. This is a whole new level of craftiness! I made Christmas Mod Podge presents, but I can't post pictures until next week, don't want to ruin the surprise for the receivers! :)

Anne also introduced me to The Wood Connection which is where I bought the unfinished wood letters. They have all sorts of amazing projects there, just waiting to be modged podged!! My only dilemma now, is finding the time for my crafts. Emma goes to sleep at 8 p.m., so between 8:30 and 10:00 will have to be my craft hours. I'll take what I can get!

I heart Mod Podge!!
