Make it for Monday #1


I haven't done much promotion for this new weekly link party, but even if I'm the only participant at least I got something done!  I'm still chipping away at projects....and I just took on a BIG project that I will talk about soon (it's a creative endeavor, but doesn't entail decorating...and no, I'm not preggers.)  So now it's even more important that I budget my time and get cracking on that cra(p)ft room.

So my project this week was itty-tiny, but fun none the less.  I picked up 4 happy red stripped cotton dish towels at IKEA for .49 ea.  Thought I'd make a pillow out of two of them, but instead I just stenciled some happy Christmas words on them.  See?


 

My seasonal decorating will be almost entirely white and natural elements this year with pops of red, so these will be a nice little touch.  I think.

So, link up if you've got a project, craft, makeover, cute kid, etc to show off.
Put the link to your actual post (not your blog, please) and in your post please link back to this post or add my button. Code is on my sidebar.
 Leave comment love for everyone too...we all like to feel connected :o)
Mr. MckLinky will be open 8:00 EST (Indiana).

I have those same towels, used them last year to stamp wreaths and berries onto. Wanted to try the technique but without spending a ton on the towels in case I ruined them. Might try them again but with better towels, I'd like them to be crisper looking and those aren't even after I ironed and ironed them. Very cute stencils, I like that much better than the wreaths I did.

I recently went to Ikea for my first visit and also purchased 12 of these towels...couldn't resist for .49! What a wonderful idea to stencil on them...hummmm!
Thanks for sharing.

Cindy - I love your tea towels! I really like the "font" too. These remind me of tea towels in Switzerland. They are usually embroidered or stenciled with something fun & simple.

Love the stenciled letters - perfect touch! Darn! I didn't finish anything this past weekend! >:(

I hope to finish something in time for next week though! Thanks for hosting such a great party! I can't wait to check out the links!

I'm so curious about what you're up to! I love the suspense!

Have a great Thanksgiving week!

Hey, thought I'd crash the party late and see what's up! Sorry I don't have anything new to link up. I think everyone and their dog has seen my stuff to date.

This week is weird. I could show the pile of pine needles I swept up, or, yeah.. maybe all the tools strewn down my hallway! No? Ok, I'll wait till my projects are abit prettier.

Love your tea towels! That is a cool idea.
