pinterest coming to fruition

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Remember that one time we talked about being regular and having lots of time on our hands? Yeah. Well after talking to my sister about this non-problem, she said that I should do everything I've ever wanted to do because I can. Before, ya know, that whole husband, babies, family thing comes into the mix and I'm driving around a whole football team of children in my truck {because the minivan thing is just not an option, folks.}

SO. The other day I got real excited about moving into my new place in a couple short weeks and made some things on my pinterest account that I knew would never happen once the ball got rolling on the whole job thing.

Here's what I made...

numero uno//

My aunt bought me these amazing bamboo spoons and I painted the ends of them because that's my extent of crafty. The jar is from World Market. Bam. Project one: finished.

numero dos//

Do you ever make something that's not expected to reach any sort of expectation and then you're like "holy cazolli I actually really like this." ? Yeah, that's what happened. I bought a plain wooden frame and painted it. In the middle is a...what do you call those? Ya know like a coffee bag material that I cut out and hot glued to the back. {I know, real complicated and classy..} Anyway, so that's my earring holder. And I'm actually really proud of it so if you don't like it, don't hate. 

Since this ain't no DIY blog, I probably won't put up any step by step directions on these things...and because, well, that's just totally unnecessary for these simpler than simpler crafts of mine. But if you want any details I'll be happy to respond to an email or two. 

{Like that use of the word ain't? Yeah me either. I promise not to do that ever again.}

Check you lovelies later.
