My blog is turning into a bit of a craft blog lately, but I think that keeping my hands busy stops me searching for (and thinking about) snacks. I had a set of place mats which had seen better days, so I decided to paint them (black of course) and decorate them. I painted them with craft paint, applied some stickers and sealed them with a mixture of craft glue and water and then varnished them. Voila! A new set of mats.
