Priceless?

Priceless?

Over the weekend we had a neighborhood yard sale.  This happens 2x a year and I’ve gone to all of them since we moved in.  I’ve managed to score some pretty cool items, for cheap too.  Last year I got a bag of pink Christmas ornaments for $5.00, much to Matt’s dismay.  (This led to the purchase of a white Christmas tree! 😉 )  At the same house, I found some really large 24×36 wooden frames.  I think they were $1.00…

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…

Flea Market Finds

Flea Market Finds

Yesterday Matt played golf, so while he was out, mom and I went shopping.  First we went to a nursery I pass each day on my way to work.  It has a very nice facility so I figured it might be kind of pricey, which is was.  It was still fun to go look around and see what might be good for the yard though.  Then we headed to the Flea Market.  Mom’s been asking to go for a while…

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

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…

More baby gifts

More baby gifts

A friend is pregnant and since I was literally the first to know I thought I would do something a little special for her shower gift. Of course I knew I wanted to make a blanket for baby k but there was also a sign I wanted to include. I knew baby k’s mom had been eyeing one on etsy that I knew I could recreate. A few weeks ago I started working on my projects. I started looking for…
