Because I've mentioned it about one million times here, you all probably already know that that crafting helps keep me sane, ESPECIALLY in regards to dealing with fertility stuff.
I heart crafting.
It's good for my soul.
Here's a couple of my recent (re)creations...
I bought this chalk board on clearance at Target- I'm fairly certain I ran in for just toilet paper but because Target has this magical effect where you discover many more things that you need, I walked away with the chalkboard, nail polish, clearance place mats (that I hope to make into pillows) and a shirt. Anyways, here's the chalkboard:
I played around with paint so I could make it distressed and this is what I ended up with:
I knew I wanted to put it in my bathroom to write sweet little messages on (and to receive them!!) since we usually just write on the mirror with a marker. The extra perk, a place to hang some of my necklaces!
The other project I did was for my sister in law's birthday. It was my other SIL's birthday last week and I made her a sign so I decided to stick with making something for this SIL also. I took a 50 cent thrift store frame, painted it, stamped out a saying on fun scrapbook paper and added ribbon to hang it. She's a bit of a chocolaholic so I knew she'd like this:
And she did like it-I gave her that along with some yummy Pioneer Woman's chocolate cupcakes! ;)
I'm not sure what I'll do next, but since I was super impressed by this pretty lady's awesome furniture re-dos, maybe I'll muster up the courage to do something like that!!
Well, that's about it for now! Hope everyone has a wonderful (long) weekend!!
