1st project of 2011!

Well, I probably shouldn't say the total 1st project, because it was a PROJECT putting all the Christmas away!
Last year when there was a meme to post your projects of 2010, I felt soooo left out.  I did a few things, but our home isn't getting painted, and I am not redecorating any room.  I didn't even do that many crafts.  So I made up my mind right then and there that I would not be left out again.  I am an only child and we have ISSUES!!

Last year I did show some altered bottles I did for gifts.  But I ignored the rule of making one for MOI!  I had the bottle forever, so I thought, now is good of a time as ever.

Now, I know that to some of you veteran altered specialists, this is very amateur....but I like how it turned out. 

I am going to try to do at least one project a month.  My husband shakes his head....he doesn't get it, but then again, he says I have ONE main project!!!  to stay well.  OK, I count that as a biggie too!!

Linking up to Inspiration Friday at Southern in my Heart and Cindy at Cindy's Whimsical Musings.

Great job!!
I too have a project that started but feel my creation cannot compare to the ones I have seen here in Blogland.
Your bottle is very pretty and you did a great job.

The bottle is beautiful, Ceekay!! Don't feel bad about projects, I hardly did anything of the sort last year but I got a lot of inspiration from those that did. And I agree your health is #1.

I do look forward to your monthly projects and hope I can do a bit more myself. Your bottle is a great atart!

I love your creativeness, Ceekay! It is really very pretty & love the button on top to finish it off. Last year I proudly 'leaped' into a bottle revamping ... it was fun!

While I am at it, would you be so kind to share with me where you contacted the place to create a book out of your blogging pages, please. I remember your sharing a bit of this & you were very pleased.

Hope all is going well with you ... have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Marydon

It and you are wonderfully, gloriously, and uniquely made, beautiful! Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

Sunny simple life said...

Ceekay you were so sweet to add me to your blog list and something was wrong with the feed so you will notice my other blog couponchallenged on your list of blogs. The feed is now correct and you can change it to if you want to. Thank you so much. You are sweet to do that.

Julie Harward said...

Hi there...I do remember those beautiful bottles and a project a month sounds wonderful, just perfect! Have fun with it all and have a very good year! :D

Kathleen said...

I like how they came out too!

I should pick some projects and accomplish something! Right now I am trying to figure out new window treatments for the den. I had the furn recovered, so I have to start all over with the windows!
And I agree with your have to stay well!
Have fun with all the bloggers!
And no, I didn't feel neglected...the holidays are a busy time , my visiting suffered too. Now I must go out and shovel the snow that fell. Oh my aching back!

Vanessa@Southern In My Heart said...

Hi Ceekay! Wow! I could not even attempt some of those projects so to me you are a Pro! :-) I just wanted you to know too that I will keep you in my prayers and hope that this year will bring healing. Thanks so much for linking this up to the Inspiration Friday party!

Karen said...

Sigh. You just crack me up.
I like the bottle. You did good. You know the only thing I might add to it is - tie a knot in some thick thread in the top button. Buttons have thread right? :)
I need to go pack ....

Cindy Adkins said...

I love it, Ceekay!!! And I never make anything for myself so I know what you mean!!! Thank you so much for linking it up to the Creative Spirit Challenge!!!

Traci said...
