I am a project person.
I love me a good project.
I love it even more when I finish a project.
Lately, I have been up to a few crafty things. Not anything really huge...but small changes make a girl just as happy as big ones...if done correctly.
# 1. A couple months ago I got some fun boots. Now, being the Pinteresting girl I am... I saw all kinds of fun socks and tights to wear with my new fun boots.
THAT I "MADE" OUT OF A $2 THRIFT STORE SWEATER!
I know! You just about fell out of your chair at my genius, right?
I just cut off the sleeves and pulled the cuffs up my legs.
No "foot" part. My feet would sweat right off my legs if I had socks that warm on...
All because of my new pretty, felt-y Christmas wreath.
Crafty # 3 - Christmas wreath. SUPER PASS.
# 4. I have a long story about my dinning room wall. And interestingly enough it also has to do with my fun boots. I would say "long story short" and just show you the wall... but what fun is the final product without a long, drawn-out background story?
So when I put this up in my living room. I used frames that were in my dinning room. Now that those frames had been repurposed... I was in need of some thing for the dinning room wall.
So I bought a LOOOONG, wide, shelf and I was going to place frames on the shelf, overlapping and looking all Pottery Barn.
And I spent the ENTIRE day trying to hang the shelf.
Then the shelf would not hang.
The "flush" bracket on the back of the shelf was not flush.
nope... it was very un-flush.
1 trip back to the store.
57 trips up and down the shelf isle.
0 shelf's in the right size.
1 stressed out, on the verge of tears Cari.
Turned out nice. Still need to replace the top middle pictures (from our wedding) with one of Ryder...poor kid.
I made the middle print and the 2 long ones.
