It's a scary world....

Of the many things that I hoard collect, globes is one of them.  (Yes I collect the world!!)  I can't resist a globe that is reasonably priced or better yet free!!

 This was about to go to the trash at the school where I worked. (okay it WAS in the trash and I rescued it!)  I have another globe painted like a snowman and the woman I bought it from told me she had done a jack-o-lantern, but had sold them all.  Soooo, I thought I can do this.... little orange spray paint, black vinyl and here ya have it........

Kinda looks like he has a mustache, and check out my blingy globe on the bottom!!!

 I am going to put the quote "it's a scary world" or "light up the world" (a little more positive) somewhere but not sure yet.
                                              (World) Peace my friends!!

His eye....

I was asked by a friend if I could create something from an old door that once hung on her Grandmother's back porch.  Of course!! I had just seen this fabulous piece from Serendipity Chic.  So I was inspired!! I love the song His Eye is on the Sparrow and had seen this quote on a nursery wall.  I knew just what I wanted to do!! I cleaned the door and lightly sanded the door in various places. Then I used my cricut machine to cut out the letters to use as a stencil for the quote.  Then I cut out the bird silhouette and applied it to the glass.  A little grapevine and 3 chandelier crystals to signify a little something special to the owner, and here you have it.......
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He is watching over me....

Matthew 10:29-31

New Living Translation (NLT)
29 What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin[a]? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. 30 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

I hope my friend loves this as much as I do......
