Paint Party Friday - New Projects...

 Happy Paint Party Friday!!! Huge thanks for our amazing hostesses with the mostesses, EVA  and Kristin for keeping this worldwide blog hopping party going on.  I am posting from my tablet for the first time and cannot locate the functions I need, yet. This post will probably get linked up a little late.

Here is my first and most important project:

This mailbox, that once marked the home of someone named Ray Long, will soon be upcycled into a vintage-looking mailbox for the guests at my Sissy's wedding to place their cards and best wishes!
This will be a very special and fun project. There won't be any in-progress pictures as it will be a surprise. The final piece will be posted after Sissy has it.

Next up is the unfinished Rasz Bagz that have been sitting next to my sewing machine for way too long. The sewing machine has a new name, Suzy Stitches.
What do you think? Here she is all cleaned up and ready to go to work:

Good thing Miss Suzy is ready because here is all the sewn and painted canvas still needing to be finished:

There are 8 Bagz there in different stages ready to go. Under Miss Suzy are totes full of hardware and embellishments. The sewing area along with the large table for essembling are in my bedroom. Yes it is a tight squeeze however great if I need to lay down or nap, hehe!

Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you today and tomorrow as I make my rounds visiting all of you that I haven't seen for a few weeks!

Big hugs, Rasz

Love the look of the old mAILBOX; That will be a fun project. The totes look great, too, have fun sewing them. My machine is always up and ready, too. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

I too like the sound of the mail box project!
The totes look like they'll be gorgeous in such pretty colours. You're all set to start work and finish them. Good for you :D)

What a great idea to use that mailbox at the wedding! It's going to look fabulous, can't wait to see it! I'm also curious to see the Rasz Bagz! Have a great weekend!

Fabulous idea for the mail box just can't wait to see it finished!! Perfect name for the machine. My moms name was Sue, my dad often called her Susie, she loved to sew and bought a new singer in the twenties or thirties...I still have it!! I look forward to your wonderful bagz too!!

Hugs Giggles
