What time is it?

It’s crafty time!! 
Last night I wanted to unwind in my scrappy space but when I sat down to start I couldn’t.  I got nervous and couldn’t help but think I might be in a slump.  What else could I do but walk away and go to bed…
This morning after breakfast I went back to see what would happen…this is what I came up with.

I am happy that it was only a ‘24 hour’ bug!
Some time ago I bought several different kinds of canvases, one happened to be all wood.  I am not sure where the idea came from but I decided I wanted to make a clock.  I even used a power tool…

And an acrylic paint dauber and a doily stamp.

3 This 8”x8” clock can hang on the wall or stand up on a shelf, so many more placement options that way.
I am actually thrilled with how it turned out…now, will I keep it or give it as a gift??  Do you have trouble giving your creations away??

  4. What a beautiful clock. I have wanted to make a clock and been a little intimidated. You may have just given me inspiration to take the plunge. I really like this.

  5. Really great project! I love to see how other people use their stamps, I haven't done too much stamping but my sister gave me a TON of really nice ones. I guess it hadn't occurred to me that you could stamp on patterned paper but this looks fantastic! and to answer your question YES!!! I DO have trouble giving things I make away, which could be a problem because, really, there are only so many things you can make for your own house, right?
