A quick crafty tip: Save those plastic lids from peanut butter containers, or similar containers, and use those to hold your craft paint during projects. I love that these lids-turned-into-dishes have raised sides to contain the paint, and also that they rinse and wash clean after you’re done. And if I’m in the middle of a project? I just put the lid inside of a plastic baggie and the paint doesn’t dry out. Easy!
On the left side in the picture above, you can see a frame I’ve been working on which will hold a prized vintage postcard that doubles as a pincushion. I’m enjoying how the frame is coming along: from a basic mass-produced new frame into an aged frame suitable for something vintage. Can’t wait to share it with you when it’s finished!
