Welcome !

Welcome to Made Down South! Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to. This blog serves as my review of projects accomplished since I have way too many that are halfway done. I also tend to have so many urgent ideas where I simply have stop all else to work on the newest thing. So, this blog will show all the ideas that actually get made into stuff! Some of that stuff is available for sale at our etsy shop, Down South Designs.

TO DO: Shadowbox Frames

Another checkoff on the TO DO List:  Redo the shadowbox frames bought for $1 at garage sale.

Not $1 each---all 4 for one buck.  What a deal even if one of the glass inserts is missing.  I didn't need the glass for what I was planning!

I had been lusting this upholstery fabric at Hobby Lobby for a while and got 1/2 yard for $10ish with my coupon discount.  Then I decided placement and cut away.  I simply wrapped the fabric around the backboard and hot glued it to the back side.

Tried my little art project on the wall and added
in a few doodahs for interest. Made the scaredy
cat in my pottery group and sewed the frayed
edge flowers with all my many scraps.  Decided
 the character marks on frame edges would not
work so I repainted with black semi-gloss for a
 more polished look.

I will be posting at the following link parties this week:

This is so cute! I really like how you put the objects in the last box (and only that box too). What an eye catching piece of art!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier. I'm a new follower of yours now!
