Surprise Online Baby Shower

What do you do when you can't attend a Baby Shower on the other side of the world...you hold a virtual one!  Anna-Karin Evaldsson is a very special member of the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team. Last year there were a lot of changes in her life, including a move from one continent to another and just a few months later, a new baby! Leo arrived weeks ahead of schedule (and just 20 minutes after reaching the hospital!) but thankfully he and Anna-Karin are both doing well. 
We want to show Anna-Karin how special she is to us, so we are giving her a virtual baby shower today to celebrate Leo's birth! Even though we can't be with her, we send our love and a special crafty surprise. We invite you to visit each team member/shower guest's blog to see what they created for this new little guy. 
If you have a message for Anna-Karin, please visit Eileen'sblog to leave your well wishes in the comments- then she can read them all at once. Thanks for being part of our celebration!

Deco Art Quick Chalky Tins

I started with these AWESOME enamel tins I found at the $1 Store for $3 each!  LOVE THEM!

A little paint goes a long way here!

I painted long strokes staying even.  These paints build so multiple thin coats are best.  I painted a few coats leaving the little lip the creamy enamel color it came with.  

I painted the little handle too.

Then with a baby wipe I took off the excess.  Dry time is quick!

I picked up a set of 3 tins.  Paint with the DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints is a beautiful subtle accent, perfect for my style!

For the black chalk paint labels I used Eileen Hull Sizzix Kitchen Labels Framelit dies.

These labels are a great fi…
