Guest post from Crystal's Craft Spot!

I'm posting over at Crystal's today! After you read how awesome she is, come on over and see what I'm making today. :)

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to be swapping with Rachelle today. Don't you love her blog? I find so much inspiration every time I look. I just love her style.

I am Crystal from Crystal's Craft Spot. Its my little spot to share my current craft projects, tutorials, recipes, and ideas I want to use in the future. I started my blog because I didn't want to overload our family blog with my new creations. I try to post something new almost everyday and I enjoy a variety of crafts. It is my way to relax and take a break from a busy day. . Here's a little more about me: I've been married for 5 1/2 years to the greatest guy ever.

I am a stay at home mom of two adorable little girls (4 and almost 2). They keep me very busy. When they are awake we spend our time playing, learning, making messes, and occasionally cleaning.

I teach my daughter preschool at home and we post our fun activities and crafts on our preschool blog.

I love to read, watch Lost, and movies

I love Blogs! I love looking at others for crafty inspiration, I love staying in touch with old friends and making new friends (I show up as the Harris family if I comment or follow your blog-sorry for any confusion)

Here are some of my favorite projects you will find on my blog: Family Motto , Easy Wall Art, fabric high chair, and My bedroom furniture

Now for the fun part. I am so excited to share this project with you. Its so simple and can be done to fit any style.

I loved this clock and immediately went in search of my own treasure.

I found this one at the thrift store for $2
I removed the clock from the frame and used tape around the edges to protect the glass while I painted.I used about three coats of black paint and peeled off the tape.I traced around the clock face on the back of scrapbook paper and cut it out.I then drew a circle for the hands and cut it out.

I carefully slid the hands through the hole and attached the paper with a glue stick. I cut out numbers and attached them as well.Replace your clock face into the frame and you now have a very cute updated clock.Come by Crystal's Craft Spot anytime for more crafts and tutorial. This week I have a special guest blogger party going one-tons of projects, blogs (including Fingerprints on the Fridge), and giveaways! I hope you stop by. Thanks again for letting me stop by. Its been a lot of fun!
