Wednesday, June 29, 2016 now has a creative section for streaming live!

Hi all!

I wanted to stop in and tell you all about an alternative to a site that a lot of us as crafters have used in the past to host classes and craft live. has been a platform for gamers in the past, but it now has a new section where we can be creative live! I have used Twitch in the past to play games live online and look forward to using the new creative section. I am in the process of setting up my channel, and will add a link to this post (or maybe make a new post) when I get this complete. It will be linked directly to my YouTube channel as well, so that when I stream, the video recording will be automatically added to my YouTube channel. One great thing about Twitch is you don't have to deal with the constant load issues this other popular site has. Twitch is dedicated to providing the best experience possible to live stream your creativity.

I hope to see you all soon!

Vintage Folding Chair Makeover

I was super excited to find these two vintage folding chairs at a garage sale for only $1 each. They were screaming, "Take us home with you!" So I did.

My little helper helped me to sand them in readiness for the really pretty aqua color I chose.

To remove the seat covers, I had to pry up the tabs on the bottom of the frame with a screwdriver. They came off pretty easily.

While waiting for the paint to dry on the frames, I got to work designing the textile for the seat. I had a piece of white fabric that I'd also picked up recently at a garage sale for $1. I measured the spaces between stripes starting with 1/2 inch, then 1 inch, and finally 1 1/2 inch spaces with masking tape.

I spray painted the fabric with the same paint used on the chairs to ensure a perfect color match.

To allow for ease of changing in the future, I simply secured the fabric to the seat frame (for lack of a better word to use for it) with masking tape. Since this area will be sandwiched between the seat frame and the chair frame it won't be seen.

These rectangular holes are where the tabs on the bottom of the seat frame fit, and are folded back down to attach the seat.

And, the finished product...
