50's gaming table

While junking in Vegas...only me...right?  I found this 50's game table.  It has presidents up to Truman and spaces that I think once had cars to move around.  It also has the multiplication tables.  I certainly don't need another table but it was just too cool to resist so I brought it home and took off the hinges.  Now it's a magnetic board!

Cricut stencils

I made this apron for my beautiful daughter, Bri who is working as a cook at a camp this summer. My family has a passion for word plays, so they were a must for this project.  

I started by cutting shapes  from the kitchen cartridge.  Then I laid wax paper over the shapes I was not using and sponged paint into the area I wanted.  You can see that I goofed and went outside the line.  Luckily for me, I was able to rub it off.  I used plain old craft paint.  You know it doesn't wash out of clothes, if you ever gotten any on you!  (I've also painted rugs successfully.) Finally, I outlined the shapes with a black paint marker and added the words with a white paint marker.  She loved it and so do I!
