Welcome friends! Are you so excited? Me too! I can't wait to see what you've all come up with!
But to start I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to my sweet Cowgirl. I can't believe she's 9! I have a post all about her to share, but I want to have pictures from the family Birthday party on Friday!
For my project, I must admit I STILL didn't finish the big project I've been hoping to show you. I keep running into problems. So I'm shooting for October's MPM to post that one!
But I was able to do another project that I have actually been thinking about for a while.
Since discovering all the fabulous talent in blog land, I have learned about, and fallen in love with the idea of accessorizing with books. I have a few spots around the house where I use some fun, old books in my decor.
Then I thought how cool it would be to Mod Podge the books! Well, I had this idea, and then I saw it in a catalog too! I don't think they Mod Podged, but it was the same idea. Anyway, here's what I came up with for a book set on my piano!
I traced the book onto the music, for the back I traced it to the exact size.
I mod podged the front piece on first, wraping around to the back, then mod podged the back piece over the the flap that was wrapped around from the front piece. Does that make sense? I don't know the best way to explain it. But it ended up placing the seam right on the back edge where the back of the book, and the spine meet. So it's not very noticeable.
I now have a fun little set for accesorizing my piano!
