Call Me a COPY CAT!

Today I have been busy copying a fellow blogger that I love...Buzzing of A Queen Bee! Last week, she decorated a gourd...it was so wonderful! She makes everything look so easy and has such a "special" touch!

So I copied her last night and did my own. I have a first grade mom's brunch at my house this Friday. So I thought this would be cute on my kitchen island!While doing this project, it was crazy! Kids screaming, pouring juice, getting markers out, asking for yarn...pure CHAOS at it's finest! After finishing this, I started to run upstairs and realized I had something stuck to my shoe....(had to take a picture). Now I have the letter "N" and "O" on the bottom of my shoe!!!That is perfect! It's the word that comes out of my mouth the most!

That is really cute and that is too funny having NO on your foot now. Just stick it up in the air and save your voicebox.

Laughing out loud! Super cute! I need to do this project too, I love it!

Becky said...

That is yet another great, simple project... I'm gonna try it on one of those mini pumpkins I find so irresistible. And I don't think its any coincidence that N O are next to each other in the alphabet.

Jan said...

High five for copy cats. That is something maybe I should be too when it comes to this gourd. Meow...

Mrs. B said...

I love it! I have one of those gourds in yellow. I like the green though, I may have to go back for one of those! Are those stickers you used?

April said...

You know what? For once, I actually think I can pull off one of your ideas!! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...!!!

The gourd is so cute! You can do all sorts of things with it! Oh, the possibilities are endless! Wait...I think I'm getting a little ahead of myself here! I'm starting to sounds like Martha Stewart!

Anyhow, thanks so much for sharing another wonderful idea!! Don't be looking for a picture of my gourd on my blog. Believe me, it won't be anything close to yours! :) Hey, I try, at least!

Hollie said...

Your gourd looks great, and I wanted to run out and get a gourd or two for her project. It is neat to everyones different take on a project. Such a pretty green. Jackie

Christy said...

I love your project!

There are some things I just can't compromise on as far as generic brands... peanut butter being one of them. As far as I'm concerned, Jif is the BEST!

There almost could be a post about that don't you think? Hmmm....
Have a great day!

heather said...

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

Hilarious!! My favorite part is the NO! I laughed out loud. I love the gourd...the green is such a pretty color and I the "Welcome" looks so great on there. I am glad you copied me...now I have to look for a green gourd and copy you back! :)
