Good Ole Uncle Sam

Well my birthday is the fourth of July, so I love patriotic stuff and decorating my house for this holiday!! This adorable Uncle Sam started out as a Plum Purdy design. Renee is one of my very favorite designers. I decided to embelish this pattern a bit with some of my own creations. I love the way it turned out! I plan on putting it on e-bay sometime this week so if you are interested in buying it you can look me up on e-bay. My e-bay ID is countrygirlcrafts4u Thanks!!

Close up of the back of watering can

Here is a close up of the back of the watering can:

Finished the 'BIRD HOUSE" watering .

Well today I finished the watering can that I have been working on. I am calling it the BIRD HOUSE watering can :D I painted lots of cute bird houses all the way around the can along with bumble bee's, lady bugs, dragon fly's, an inch worm and some pretty little flowers! There's even a birds nest with eggs in it! On the top of the can I painted a smiling sun shine girl! This can will look really cute sitting on someones front porch to water all those beautiful summer flowers! I hope you like it...it is going on e-bay soon.

How To Remove Stubborn Stickers

I recently had some trouble getting a very stubborn sticker off of a watering can I wanted to paint on. I posted a question on Face Book asking for idea's on how to remove it. Here is what I got:

1. Hair Dryer (heat it up and peel it off)
2. Fingernail Polish Remover (rub over sticker and scrap off)
3. Peanut Butter (apply, let sit and then scrap off)
4. Vegetable Oil (apply, let sit and scrap off)
5. Goo Gone (Found at the Dollar Tree for $1)
6. Wall Paper Remover.

There were so many good ideas and thought I would share them. so the next time you have a stubborn sticker and you can not get it off...try one of these idea's :D
