Paint me a picture!

Paint me a picture!

Okay, so last week I posted the pic I bought at our neighborhood yard sale.  The plan, paint over the original canvas (pray it wasn’t priceless) and update the frame.  I really had no clue how long something like this might take.  Honestly, I kind of thought it might take me a while. Saturday morning while Matt was out golfing, I decided to start painting and see what happened.  I made a makeshift painting station in the garage.  One side…

Flea market find!

Flea market find!

Matt and I knew that when we bought a new house there were various items that would need to be upgraded.  Our bedroom furniture is on that list.  We are currently in possession of my childhood furniture set.  However, this set did not come with bedside tables so a few years ago I bought some cheap side tables from Walmart.  We couldn’t have anything too large in our old room at the townhouse.  These fit nicely even though they were…

A tale of two doors

A tale of two doors

Right after Matt and I moved into the new house we had a really bad storm come through and our front door leaked.  You can read about that here.  That was 3 months ago.  Since then I’ve been waiting for my new front door.  While we weren’t happy that the front door leaked, it gave me the opportunity to actually get the front door I wanted.  When we bought the house, I had dreams of removing the grids from the…

Craft room update

Craft room update

Hello, almost vacation! Matt and I are planning a little trip to the beach for a few days.  I feel like I am in desperate need of a vacation.  Our last “real” vacation was two years ago to Jamaica. So, let’s see, what have I been up to.  Well, I am still working on my craft room.  I think it’s going to be a work in progress for a while.  It’s been so freaking hot lately that I haven’t wanted…

The making of a craft room

The making of a craft room

When we picked our new house I knew I was going to make one of the bedrooms into a craft room.  Matt was getting an office and I wanted a craft room.  We had the space so I decided to use the bedroom next to the the master.  It’s the only bedroom not connected to a bathroom and I wasn’t keen on having a bedroom right next to our bedroom/bathroom so this was the perfect space. For months I searched…

Superhero Subway Art

Superhero Subway Art

I found this pic on my phone over the weekend and realized I never actually posted the final product.  Whomp whomp.  Even worse, it was like a year ago.  Oopsy. Backstory, a friend was having a baby and decided to do a superhero themed nursery.  In true Kelly fashion, I decided to make her something.  I decided on subway art with superhero slogans.  I was lucky we were pretty slow at work so I was able to work on my…

Mr. Picky Pants

Mr. Picky Pants

Matt and I have been on a coffee kick lately on weekend mornings.  We have about 3 mugs that hold 10+ oz and fit under the Kuerig so we decided we needed some bigger mugs.  When Matt first mentioned this, I told him I’d run to Home Goods or TJ Maxx and pick up a few new ones.  Well work has been crazy or it’s been cold and rainy so I haven’t run out at lunch to look. Yesterday the…

Gettin’ my craft on!

Gettin’ my craft on!

The past few days at work have been quite boring.  To the point that yesterday I think I found the end of the internet.  Last night while I was watching TV I decided I should start working on a craft project for a friend who is having a little boy in a few months.  They’ve decided on a superhero themed nursery.  I tried to think what I could do that would be superhero themed.  PLUS, I thought it would be…

I feel another Pinterest Project coming on…

I feel another Pinterest Project coming on…

It’s been several months since I have been inspired to create any of the craft projects I currently have pinned. I found this adorable pic from Esty dealer drawGabbydraw and just knew I had to do it. I have watercolors so all I really need it probably a good pen. I have no idea where I will put it. I might need my own little lady cave so I can display all my random art projects. 😉 I still have…

A special craft

A special craft

I don’t think I mentioned it, but my brother in law Patrick, was very big in the music scene. He played the guitar, managed a music store and was constantly going to festivals to help. As we were cleaning his house, we started finding guitar picks laying around. I guess I didn’t really think about the fact that he probably had a ton of them until we had a little baggie full. As soon as I saw how many there…
