So in the meantime I've been working on a few smaller and easier projects to satisfy my craving to make stuff! I spend so many hours looking at all these blogs getting ideas and inspiration but it's a lot harder than I thought thinking of what I can do myself.
So last night I started working on a few things but only finished one so far, so I thought I'd share. I got the idea from my friend Kelsey at Fabulously Flawed and figured it was something small and easy I could start with. I had a frame to use, but didn't have garden twine, a glue gun, or clothes pins. So, I decided to go to the suuuuper g-h-e-t-t-o 99 cent store that's a couple miles from my house. And to my surprise, they had glue guns and glue sticks. And they work!! I was so excited. I got garden twine from Home Depot, and some clothes pins/white spray paint from Michael's. I spray painted the frame, glued on the strings of twine, and clipped on some pictures. Here it is:
I still don't know exactly where I'm going to put it... but for now it's hanging in my dining room in a random place. I just wanted to see it hung up and looking pretty. :)
Ooo and I just had to share my cute little door mat I found for our back door this weekend at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.. on sale for $9.99!
It's so me! :D And last but not least.... this is what I woke up to this morning. My little Dolce snuggled next to me all sleepy and cute:
That had nothing to do with this post but I had to show off my cute little man.
I am will have another post very soon of the other projects I'm working on! I'm making my mom something for Mother's Day too.
I have a million DIY things I want to accomplish, but the main things are: Dining room table, our King headboard, and re-decorate our hideous guest room.
