When you can't

I consider myself a very crafty person! I mean I have tried most crafts and can do some better then others! One thing I have always loved and admired are those that can create beautiful gifts and decor by hand embroidering. I have bought tons of  DMC floss and have several books on embroidery stitches, like real easy to read and understand. Or so I thought....needless to say - I can't do it! As much as I have tried I just can't do it!

But being a crafty chik - I came up with another way to use those fun embroidery hoops and resemble the look of hand work....

How cute are these? Just used my 2nd favorite medium PAINT. I used stencils both purchased and some I cut out myself. Below you can see the Crafty Mess I was in painting these hoops. 

I am taking these hoops with me to the #gypsyroadshow this weekend. Maybe you can come by and check them out if your in the neighborhood. It'll be at Victoria Gardens Cultural center. 10-4 and will be packed with amazing crafters selling the most awesome goodies.

Anyway, just a crafter finding her way around something she is not good at and turning into something really cool! 

Happy crafting - I will be sharing at the parties posted above.
