I love how SuperMoss can transform 
a stack of tarnished silver trays.

Some of my favorite photograph props include
pine cones, antlers & bird statues.
I've added SuperMoss to that list!
It gives almost any object the illusion
of a living, growing enchantment!

You'll love this moss that comes 
with a boat carpet or astro-turf style backing!
You can cut it into any shape,
but I like a natural, uneven rip much better.

It comes in folded sheets,
just check your local greenhouse
or craft store.  I paid $6.99 for 2 square feet.

You can see this stack of trays
for sale on my Etsy shop:

I can assure that there will be more
moss used as props as I keep heading 
towards my goal of having 100 items
listed in my shop.

I don't know about you,
but I love a good rustic sign.
It's fun to creation regional pieces
to sell at my craft booth.
The cabin & lake folks 
around here love the 
theme including 
anything Minnesota!

I bought these gorgeous cedar wood squares
at a garage sale for $1.50 each.
They made a good background for 
my state stencils to really
stand out on, don't you think?

I added a glitter heart in the area
where most my customers
visit or live!

Moose Lake & Duluth

This white sign leaves the Minnesota 
showing in wood grain form.
This is my favorite of the two signs.

Now lets look at the black sign.
It features an opposite design,
where I chose to paint in the state.

If your curious what I used for a stencil,
here's the truth.

I used tracing paper to make a outline
of Minnesota from a large atlas.
Then I used a piece of tag board to make
a reusable stencil.

The letters were made on my Cricut machine.
I cut them out on adhesive vinyl &
stenciled the words on after the states
had dried overnight.

I smeared glue over a heart
shaped stencil , pulled it off
and added some very fine red glitter.
Again, this was the last step & 
all the other paint had dried overnight.
