A truckload of inspiration comes today from the super talented SGD Girls Allison and Lilith
First off a wonderful page by Lilith! I love what she did with the cut outs in the background! Such a great idea Also did you see what she did for the top boarder? She used the Stamp “Memories of You” from the World Traveler Set over and over again to create a funky boarder! Cool cool cool
Next a happy page by Allison! I can’t say enough how I love her sense of layering and mixing colors and textures. Love the way she used the ‘Splatter‘ Stamps! Looks like it is watercolor
Hope you have a great time!!
Quickly wanted to say ‘See you later, Navigator!’ before I’m gone. Don’t know if I have time or the tools to blog while I’m in Europe, so better don’t count on it I should be back on the 14th of May. Hopefully with lots and lots of pictures and cool stories
Already missing home. Dexter, Jynxy and most of all Adrian… But I’m also super excited. To teach at the CAR 4, to get to know new awesome people, to see my family, to spend time with old friends, to travel…. Should be fun!
Wish me luck with the class and send some prayers that the plane doesn’t crash…
Have a wonderful 3 weeks
xoxo, Rahel ♥

UPDATE: So I just got a comment from someone telling me, that Latex Paint can be flammable. We gave our toaster a quick test run and it seems fine (obviously that doesn’t prove anything!). Just wanted to let you all know!! Maybe it wasn’t the bestest idea I’ve ever had I didn’t delete this post because of the tutorial itself. Before you paint something ask yourself this question: could this go up in flames?? So paint boxes, jars, furniture, but maybe not toasters
Yesterday I got the Chalkboard Bug… And that meant, that I just couldn’t resist to paint our ugly red Toaster with that AMAZING paint
When we first got married, I decided in a whim to have ALL our kitchen appliances in red. Thank goodness they didn’t have my KitchenAid Stand Mixer in red that day!! (even though, then I had at least a good reason to turn that into a chalkboard as well )
Ready for a little Tutorial on this subject??
Pretty simple, right? Here a few pics of the process…
This is how it looked after the first layer of paint. Let it dry completely (doesn’t take long at all, maybe 20, 30 minutes) and then add a second and possibly a third layer.
I used a foam brush and a cheap normal brush for the more delicate areas. Make sure you rinse them when you don’t use them.
Now, I haven’t used the toaster yet (we’re out of bagels…) and I can’t tell you how it will hold up over time. So don’t blame me
Hope you guys liked this one
The other day, last Sunday to be exact, a few girls from church came over to have a photo shoot with me I thought I could share some of my faves with you
Would love to hear your feedback
