Chalkboard Canisters...

I should have something Easter related today....but I don't.  For whatever reason this slacker of a girl just didn't make many Easter cards this year. So instead you are going to get little chalkboard canisters.
 I purchased a box of silver canisters in the wedding aisle at Michaels.  I gave them about 3 coats of paint.
While the paint was drying I found this gorgeous Poppy flower at the Silhouette store.  I cut the pieces, inked the edges, and ran it under some water. Having the petals wet makes it easier to shape each one.  
I assembled the flowers and added a bit of gold yarn and cording, and several leaves to finish them off. As a final touch I used a sentiment from SRM Stickers over a piece of gold Washi tape. 
This picture is totally random of my dog, Myla.  But honestly she is the silliest dog ever!  What dog sits like this on the back of the couch?

The next couple of days are going to be a marathon for me. 
I am enjoying the last peaceful relaxing time this morning and then BAM! 
Let the races begin!
*Clean the House
*Finish laundry
*Prepare potatoes and vegetables for Sunday
*Color eggs with the kids
*Set table for Sunday
*Deal with pool installation guys today
*Final fitting for Cort's dress
* Attend beauty pageant allllllllll day tomorrow
* Get home late
*Have company over for Easter.

Wish me luck!
Happy Easter my friends! Have a blessed holiday!
