A new project

A new project

Woo hoo! Thanks to my lovely friend Sarah, I was perusing Craigslist tonight and came across a sweet little find. An antique and it’s only $10.00. I am pretty excited about this little gem. A little work, some paint and new fabric and this will be a great addition to the house. Enough teasing already. I’ll post pics after I pick it up. ūüôā ~ k

Hello Halloween!

Hello Halloween!

I normally don’t do much for Halloween but the craft bug bit me, again, and I needed something to do. Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I would decorate some. I found some great printables, and you might remember the crazy Target spree I went on a few weeks ago. I also decided I wanted to do a Halloween wreath. I found a great one on Pinterest. It was plastic snakes hot glued to a grapevine wreath…

I mentioned in this post¬†¬†that I was working on a “secret” project. ¬†Well I am ready to reveal what I’ve been working on. A friend of mine found the cutest owl blanket on Etsy. ¬†She wanted it for her new baby so I told her that would be my gift. ¬†Well a few months passed and as she got closer to her due date I decided it was time to get her gift. ¬†I went to Etsy but the shipping…

The materials for my next projected arrived on Friday. Saturday we had the NC State game and yesterday was gross and rainy out so I began working on my latest venture.

Pinterest Project – Watercolor State

Pinterest Project – Watercolor State

Last week I bought some watercolors. ¬†I haven’t played with watercolor since I was a kid but I’ve been itching to get my hands on some kind of paint so I finally decided to make this project. ¬†Much to my surprise watercolors aren’t that expensive. ¬†Michael’s had several different sets starting at $5.00. ¬†I decided the $5.00 pack would be fine for now. ¬†If I find I’m painting a lot more I’ll invest in better supplies but for now this…

Hair bands – by the yard

Hair bands – by the yard

As promised I went to Joann’s yesterday but alas, they did not have the elastic I was looking for. ¬†So I did a little research yesterday and found an Etsy dealer who sells elastic by the yard. ¬†You can buy 10 yards for $2.95. ¬†Add shipping to that and well for under $6.00 you could make hair bands until the cows come home, literally. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I don’t see my buying any bulk elastic for a while but just in case…

Otis the Owl, fail!

Otis the Owl, fail!

Over the weekend I decided to make the cute owl I found on Pinterest. I cut out my fabrics last week to save some time so I didn’t have to do all the steps at once. Anyway I was pretty excited about the color combos I had picked out. My original goal had been to use a fancy, thick stitch around the face, eyes, nose and body. Then I would sew the little guy up. Well this is pretty much…

From drab to FAB!

From drab to FAB!

I mentioned that Matt and I went to Southpoint on Saturday. ¬†After lunch we headed towards the mall part, it’s kind of an indoor outdoor mall, but I wanted to stop by Anthropolgie on the way in. ¬†It’s super pricey and I never even look at the clothes but I do like to look at the random housewares. ¬† As I was browsing I noticed 2 big shelves full of knobs. ¬†Oh heck yeah! ¬†There’s a desk in our foyer…

Well it has arrived on our door. ūüôā ¬†Over the weekend I finally took down the Valentine’s Day wreath and changed it to our Spring wreath. ¬†This burlap wreath is so¬†versatile, it’s great. ¬† Just a few simple changes and it can go from one season/holiday to the next. ~k
