A craft

okay...so i was so excited about this little craft i whipped up!
a fancy mailbox cover!!!
every step of the way was delicious...
except the plastic covering...yeah, need some practice with sewing plastic...VERY tempermental it/I was....
so...i got it all done...after the rain stopped, i put it out...admired it for a day...and then it rained again...poo-wie!
condensation is pooling at the bottom seams...what should i do??
there is just enough space for the moisture to get in through the stitches...or maybe it is something more scientific..too much for this crafty brain...
i may just make another one with only fabric..no plastic, and spray it with scotch guard..
what do you think...Do you want one???
i mean, it's not like i don't have enough fabric to make another one...for every day of the week...
from now until eternity... okay, maybe not THAT much fabric...
but it was fun to make...
and it DOES make our mailbox look exceptionally adorable..i think.
..

and now showing on the side of my Minivan (yeah, i was supposed to do a post on the arrival of our mini back in the spring...i LOVE it...i feel more safe...when i drive in our tiny car now, i feel like my hiney is on the ground...anyway..LOVE My MINIVAN!!!)
I am not the happiest with this car magnet..."free" at Vistaprints
I really want an Autismbloom on there...but they are all so patterned that it is hard to get the writing/info on it to stand out..i'm still playing with it...
i've posted next door at AutismBlooms
so go see...
and have a Love-fully!

Cute mail box cozy... Sorry about the moisture... I like the minivan mag. I wonder if you use picnik {the free photo editing program} to somewhat fade the blossoms, if the writing would stand out better?? You can even add writing through picnik...

I really like the mailbox cover. I should have told you that when I dropped off those cake balls.
I like your magnet, I really do. Sorry you aren't pleased with it. And by the way, I love Myles new video!

What a great idea. It looks great on your mailbox. I hope you can find a way to resolve the moisture problem.
