I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.

Painting on Pillow cases

I found a picture of what I wanted and freehanded the sword on white paper or you can enlarge the image and print it out, then I cut it out and use a Sharpie to trace it on to my pillow case, then I painted it with black fabric paint. Make sure to put a piece of cardboard in between the pillowcases otherwise the paint will go through.
You need:
pillow case
fabric paint
image on white paper

Swords and ships!
