Trilingual Place Mats and Crackle Glaze Preview

It seems like the weather is just trying to get my goat.  I have been waiting for a nice day to spray paint in the backyard, since my garage has horrible ventilation, and every morning I wake up to this:
Lame.  There was one nice day last week, and I already had other plans.  This crackle glaze tutorial is never going to happen the way things have been going, but hope lingers with this week's forecast.  To ease your aching souls, I thought I'd just share a little "before" photo to get you excited for how awesome this project is going to turn out.  It. Will. Be. Awesome.
This is a small decorator's table with screw-on legs.  I got it from a neighbor for about a quarter.  It is supposed to be draped with a cloth and topped with a round piece of glass.  To that, I say, "No Sir, not in my house!"  I have big plans for this little table.  That's all I am going to really say about it to keep some air of mystery about, but one more thing I can tell you is that this project will result in two separate, but equal, tutorials.  Which is also awesome.

I have also been doing a bit of screen printing, so I thought I'd share my latest design with you.  It's been bouncing around the ole noggin for a year or more, so it's great to finally get it out.
I was having some serious issues with making my screens for a few weeks, but I'm happy to report that I finally got it all worked out.  It was one of those moments where you go, "Maybe I don't know what I am doing here. . ."  I have a few more blank screens ready to go and hope to get some more new designs ready for the summer.

Hey Auds! Those placemats are adorable! Can I be your first customer? If so, I'd like 4! :)
