Make Something Monday #2

Make Something Monday

Here's my second time participating in Make Something Monday. I wanted to try something new, so I found a couple fabric postcard tutorials online and followed along with them. I like how it turned out and plan on using it as a prize I have to contribute to a creative challenge I'm participating in on Etsy. I tried to use another tutorial about printing on paper to make the back of the postcard look better, but my printer is running out of ink and the paper/fabric kept getting all mangled up. I did finally get it to run through, but the ink wasn't dark enough. So I wound up just writing on the back because I wanted to finish it today. This meets the requirements for a postcard and could actually go through the mail.

Very cool idea, I agree with Felicia you should sell those!

Thanks so much for checking out my blog. Ok Egg Nog ones I used the green sprinkles I made (sugar and green food color still blows my mine how easy that was). The Mexican Chocolate I rolled in Cinnamon and Sugar. Those were supper taste, still love the egg nog ones the best! And so easy!

Have a wonderful day!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
