Hello everyone! This past weekend was one of those so busy you can hardly see straight weekends (it was mostly dog washing, DogChops summer hair cuttin' and craft room cleanin".... oh my was the craft room a mess... I should have taken before and after pictures. I think the craft room lost at least 50 pounds (and she could still stand to lose a few more))!
Sunday evening RonChops and I wandered over to my folks house to visit with my sister. SisterChops is in town to take over MomChops knee watch duty (MomChops is doing GREAT with her new bionic knee). My sister brought 4 solid suitcases full of thrift store finds and crafty goodies for a week long craftstravanga/MomChops knee watching party (MomChops showed RonChops the franken-knee and I think he almost passed out... EEPS)!!!
One of the finds SisterChops brought us was a wooden serving tray that was PERFECT for lining with corks... the sucker was only $4.00 (traveling all over the country as a flight attendant leads her to the BEST CHEAP junk on earth)!!! We have all been searching for the perfect tray since the family pottery weekend with PamChops last October (this little photo here is one I took of PamChops tray)... and SisterChops found one for us! YAY SISTERCHOPS!!!
I could not even believe how fast it went together! We got home from hanging out with them around 5 and I had the whole thing together about an hour later! It's SUPER fast and easy!
The biggest pain was filling in the holes on the edges and sides. That required some cork cutting... and I can honestly say that cork cutting is not my favorite thing on earth... BUT... once it's all done it makes everything ok! I know my mom is really going to love using this tray and I was happy that between the corks my friends and family have been saving up for me and this tray my sister found, that she's going to have the perfect serving tray!
I used hot glue to secure these corks. I put the glue directly to the tray so I could position the corks the way I wanted them! It was just much easier that way!
Soooo.... on to the giveaway winners from last week!!!
