French Tins

I got nothing.  Seriously, I haven't had a chance or opportunity for any great Goodwill or garage sale makeovers in the past week.  I sit in my craft room/office looking woefully around and thinking to myself: "I got nothing."  Every weekend in July it seems we had something going on so I'm hoping August will slow down just a bit...

Anywho, I did manage to whip up a couple of new tins for my Etsy shop Friday night.  The first is a lovely image you've probably seen on The Graphics Fairy. Don't you just love the blue hue?:
The second is by far my favorite.  And I couldn't believe on my first try I got the perfect circle using my Cricut.  Of course no luck with the second and third tries.  Oh well:
Hopefully some fabulous new project or find will land in my lap this week because I've got the craft itch!

Linking to Between Naps on the Porch: Met Monday and The Graphics Fairy: Brag Monday.

Wow, that is such a great idea and I love the graphic you chose. Good luck with the other pieces you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by 5 Minutes Just for Me. It's so lovely to meet you!

Best wishes for a great week,

I know how it is, now that we started Met Monday, why do we feel so compelled to do it every week? I am addicted! Love your ideas.

I like them both! Sometimes you just need a rest, I'd take advantage of it!

Very lovely! The craft itch is a good one to get! SHow us what you make to satisfy it!!!!

Jane said...

That is a great repurpose for the tins. The graphics you used are perfect!
I so know what you mean about having the itch to craft something but having nothing. In my case the nothing is a current lack of motivation. I think the heat is just wiping me out and my idea of a good evening right now is a cold drink in front of the TV.
Have a great day.
