R U a deviant
People beware - there's a lot of us running amok out there..............
I am guilty on all counts!
At least now I know how it all started - oh the neighbours all knowing I was always late is just
mortifying to me now, looking back!
AND. I. DON'T. LIKE. HELEN.
Too perfect for me - goody 2 shoes - even if she knows how to match her clothes
And by the way I'm notorious for interrupting people!
And if I had ever met that commentator I would have crapped my pants
in terror - that voice - that attitude - how did girls survive this?
Soooo scary - it sounds like one of those horror movies where
a perfectly sane person is being locked up - while this patronizing
voice is droning on in the background, lol.
We've come a long way, baby
But I am off to buy a nailbrush tomorrow. My nails really are a disgrace.
And like Barbara, it's far too late for tears now
Oh and last night I was cleaning the kitchen and decided it was time to throw out a small cutting board I've had forever - when I thought I'd just stencil it instead and see how it turned out -
and this is how it turned out
I'm really loving my stencil - best one I've bought so far :)
Wouldn't this make a cute Hostess gift - with little jars of...............you guessed it - parsley, sage.................
Here's the stencil I purchased - it comes with 2 sheets - 1 for small and 1 for caps - aren't they great?
Think I paid 15.00 ( but really not sure, at a local craft store here in Montreal )
The sprig of Rosemary ( yeah that's what we'll call it, ok? ) was just free hand - I want to laugh out loud at that
because I can't even draw a stick man - but sprigs of something I'm ok with -

Fabulous use of something you would have otherwise thrown out! Looks great too. Is that a stensil you made or already had on hand?ReplyDelete
OK, I just cannot wait to hear what John's comment will be on this one!ReplyDelete
Tears are flowing but not because it's TOO LATE FOR ME. I bet Helen went crazy one day and took off for Woodstock, where she hooked up with a bass player, had a couple of kids and worked in the music biz until she became a blogger. No wait, that's me! ~ MaureenReplyDelete
That was funny. Love it. Helen bugs. I love your stencil work! Looks great!ReplyDelete
I'm a deviant I guess...certainly better than Helen, right? :) Your stencil is adorable! Did you buy it like this or did you make it? Inquiring minds want to know, k?ReplyDelete
What a cute funny post and I do believe you're a hoot! I love hoots! I'm one too. :) Now your stencil work on your board looks wonderful. What a fancy looking alphabet. Thank you so much for following my blog and now I'm following yours! :)ReplyDelete
Be a sweetie,
so cute, I would love some great stencils!ReplyDelete
This turned out darling! Good job on free-handing the sprig of Rosemary. Thanks for stopping by...looking forward to following you too!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the stencil! You really did a beautiful job on this, including the 'sprig'. :)ReplyDelete
So....you're a deviant artist, eh....? lol! GREAT stenciling job, Suzan! Fabulous way to upcycle! :)ReplyDelete
PS An old toothbrush works pretty well as a nailbrush if you can't find a real one. hehehe!
I knew you were more than just a pretty face- You are a deviant- love that about you! Now I know we can be BFF's! Love the cutting board-great idea for a gift. And....what did the hubster have to say about you stenciling THAT? xo DianaReplyDelete
Good thinking Susie!!! So practical and soooo cute!!ReplyDelete
giggle, I think I saw that when it was originally presented at school. Love the cutting board makeover! HugsReplyDelete
Love the stenciling! Great idea!! Thanks so much for stopping by! You have gained a new follower as well :)ReplyDelete
They called THAT deviant behaviour! LOL!ReplyDelete
And I hate Helen too.
your cutting board turned sign is adorable!ReplyDelete
Love your cutting board!! And perfect timing, because I need your help...ReplyDelete
I'm in the process of stencilling an old board I found in my husband's wood pile. Had to repaint & start over, I am having a devil of a time lining up the letters! How did you get them all so even (without an ugly pencil line)? And when I finish one letter, I have to wait for it to dry before I do the next one (putting the stencil on top will smudge the first one). This is taking forever...all for one measly little plaque. What is your tip on this?? HELP?? I have so many neat pieces of wood and cute sayings I want to paint for gifts, but the rate I'm going it will be Christmas 2014 before anyone gets them.
(wondering...if I tape a piece of string for each line of lettering...)
