some crafty goodness

I found some unused pictures (with prints I'm not into anymore) 
so I painted them with chalkboard paint.
(my new-new boyfriend - 2nd only to vinyl)
I didn't get a before picture of those.
but they're your basic 8x10 frames, now painted white.  
Once they are 'fancied' up...I'll post pictures.  
I figured the chalkboard paint worked so well on the frame glass...any glass is fair game.  Cleaning out the fridge gave me my next victim.  
I removed the label from this spaghetti sauce jar (bertolli, I think).  
I grabbed the masking tape to mark off my area. 
ok..so it's not 'perfect'...but I kinda dig the uneven-ness of it.

While the paint was drying, I tried my hand at a hair clip for the ladybug.  
She's got the craziest, curliest hair & can't be bothered to control it :)  but I made a clip anyway.  I had some fabric laying around...cut 3 circles (in various sizes)...
got out a needle and thread (as close to sewing as I get).  
I tried to gather the fabric together in the center.  
*if there is a technical term for that..I don't know it*

Once I was happy with the way it looked..I hot glued the alligator clip on the back & added a resin candy corn in the center.  Ready for Halloween!!
