I love Mother's Day. Being a mother is the most important part of who I am! I owe so much to my incredible Mother... She taught me everything I know.
I was thrilled to participate in Plaid's Mother's Day Campaign. They sent me a whole box full of crafting goodies to create a beautiful and meaningful gift for my Mamacita! Here is what I came up with:
I created this stenciled mason jar vase with burlap and bakers twine! Each flower has a very special meaning because each one represents a member of our family. (More on that later!)
I love daisies. The name of my blog is no accident. Daisies equal happiness for me! I thought these would be the perfect way to express our appreciation for my Mom, a true flower enthusiast!
It was like Christmas morning when I ripped open this package of amazing supplies from Plaid's Martha Stewart's craft line. Talk about creative inspiration in a box! There was acrylic paint, glitter, all sorts of stencils, a heating tool, a spray painting kit, every kind of brush I could imagine, a sweet tote bag, and all sorts of stenciling accessories packed inside.
I even created a "haul video" showing the entire crafting stash as I opened the box.
** For the record, I set up the tripod and taped myself while mr. oopsey was out of town. I felt a bit awkward! I'm still new to vlogging, but if you want a tiny sneak peek of the new house, maybe focus on the background instead of me! Ha!
For this particular project, I wanted to try out the spray painting kit. Hello! Turning acrylic paint into spray paint just sounds fun. So I gave it a shot! This was shockingly easy!
I carefully followed the directions on the sprayer kit to mix the correct proportions of the gloss spray medium with acrylic paint. Then I simply twisted the sprayer onto the bottle. Easy, right?
