Arts, Crafts and Celebrities!!

Yesterday, I decided to do a little project which wasn't wedding related. I made this witch fan.

I saw something similar in the Somerset Holidays and Celebrations book/magazine.

I used some old ledger paper for the fan, crepe paper, cardboard, wire and of course glitter.

I found a vintage picture to use for the witch. I made her hat, and the star out of cardboard.

I painted a stir stick black for the handle. Then I glued seam binding to the back. I glued on a button and an old rhinestone earring. Viola! Witch Fan!!!

After being tagged yesterday, one of my random things was, that I had met many celebrities.

I've had many of you ask who I have met. Well I started to write a list. It's amazingly long and not even finished. It's really my husbands fault. His job requires us to attend charity functions. The celebrities just happen to be there too. Sometimes they mingle with us non celebrities. So we usually start talking or go up and say hello. They are usually very nice, and sometimes we have a picture with them. Hence my wall of fame in my hallway.

So in no particular order here goes a partial list.

Ellen, Candice Bergen, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Charlton Heston, Tony Danza, Gary Sinise, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, Beverly Mitchell, Catherine Hicks, Keri Russell, Amy Smart, Greg Grunberg, Sela Ward, Paul Sorvino, Sharon Stone, David Crosby, Ashley Judd, Harry Hamlin, Joan Van Ark, Joyce Dewitt, Suzanne Somers, Fred Willard, Sting, Ed Begley Jr., Max Gail, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Drew Barrymore, Jane Seymour, Pierce Brosnan, Camryn Manheim, Swoosie Kurtz, Mr. Blackwell, Casey Kasem, Anthony Edwards, Christopher Lowell, Christopher Atkins, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh, Lauren Koslow, Deidre Hall, etc. And no Susie Q, not Brian Dennehy, you will be the first to know.

Now remember, this was over a period of years.

Hope you enjoy that crazy list.
Have a great Day!!

I love that Somerset Holidays book too!!
So, are Sela Ward and Ashley Judd really as pretty as they appear on screen? I'm kinda hoping not. ;)

Hi Rosemary! I just wanted to tell you congrats on being COTM!! I just found your blog via Marilyn's blog and it just so happens that you are also a friend of Jen's and this month's COTM, which I just looked at last night. Your home is so festive with all of your darling touches here and there. Love the vintage noise makers in the bowl. Great!!

I have come to know Jennifer and just love her to pieces. She is incredibly gifted and so sweet, too. (I was July's lucky recipient...). Anywho, just wanted to stop in for a hello and to send my sentiments. xo, Becky

Your fans are so cute. My niece would love it!

You have met an amazing number of people in the celebrity world. But I suspect you have met quite a few more "regular" people in your day with whom you find even more amazing. You're such a sweetheart. Thanks for linking me up too, btw.


Michelle said...

Love your fan! And wow, the list of celeb's is great! I love Drew barrymore, I think she's the sweetest and love all her movies.
I've met a few since i used to help out with my Nanny friend in L.a. She works for the Zuckers. They are a husband and wife director team, the husband Jerry Zucker did movies like My best friends Wedding, first knight, and Airplane.

I used to help decorate their place for a halloween party where all the who's who would be there with there kids.I had a nice meeting with Dustin hoffman
I also went to the premier of best friends wedding and sat next to steven spielburg the whole time, plus other people.
I have a lot of stories, wish I had pic's too.

Gretchen said...

I absolutely adore that fan!! You have such talent.

Great list of celebs. :) My job is to interview celebs and politicians. Sometimes it's fun and sometimes, I just want to run!

Marilyn said...

I love Greg Grunberg in Heroes! He's so cute. What a great list of celebs. DH's met a couple that have been here in New Mexico while filming movies. He used to manage a retail grocery store and everybody eats....LOL.

I sure wanted to meet Christian Slater when they were filming 3:10 to Yuma a few months back. They were filming pretty close by. But we didn't get to the location.

Your list is impressive!!!

Genevieve Olsen said...

I love your witch fan!!!!

Susie Q said...

Your fan is wonderful! What talent...: )

That is some list...even without Brian! Okay, so I laughed out loud when I read the last sentence!

My list would also include, Gary Sinise & Joe Regalbuto but oh how I would live to meet Candice Bergen. Jamie Lee and Janet Leigh must have been cool.

Wow, what fun you have had!


cammyk said...

You did an amazing job on the witch fan. Love, love, love it!! Where did you get the image?

Wanda said...

I'm star struck just reading that list! The closest I've come is standing in line to get Davy Jones' autograph and almost getting stepped on by Jim Nabors, who is from my home town.

Allison said...

I absolutely love your fan!!!! Love, love, love it. You are so talented. I would love to hang out with you for a whole day and just make stuff. You could show me how to make the hanging cone thingys, crowns, fans...really, anything you would care to share :o) Maybe you could tell me how to make the part of the fan that is the round accordian paper portion that the picture is sitting on. I can't ever seem to make those work. Oh yes, and I really enjoyed seeing your list of celebs. So fun.
