Sitting here getting my hair done

It’s rare that I post a picture of myself on my blog (especially one this scary looking), but posting from the beauty shop chair is the type of blogging I’m going to have to do. I finished a marsupial order last week. The Americana was my favorite, especially since it was designed for this lady’s friend in the military.

I also tried an idea from pinterest using an old book and succulents. I LoVE how this turned out!

Used an app that’s been on my phone for awhile called photo cork. You have to get the paid version if you don’t want photocork added to the end of your photo title.

I hope to take pics of my recovered chairs today. Used some Lucy’s Crab Shack. Sweetwater, you make we swoon!

upcycle (Amy, this is for you)

My friend Amy is the most amazing recycler I have ever seen, not to mention a great mom and teacher. For their family of 5, they only have 1 bag of trash a week and they have a small child in diapers.  AMAZING!! (Umm, we have way more trash than than I hate to admit)  So in honor of Amy, I recycled some pop-tart boxes, you know, the ones you get at Sam’s with smaller boxes inside, the ones that totally waste cardboard with multiple packaging. They were the perfect size to make some baskets for my super unorganized shelf.  The result is pretty awesome and I’m planning to make a few more for the T’s rooms.

I have another basket project I can’t wait to do out of this wire fabric stuff.  I will eventually get that bookshelf under control.

The following two pictures are just for fun, but sometimes I can’t help but share.  What happens when T3 & 4 are quiet in their bedrooms for an hour? The Avenger happens.  The decoration on this costume is notebook paper they colored, cut out and TAPED to T4s shirt and face.  They taped a yellow t-shirt around his middle to make the diaper looking thing.  Yes TA stand for The Avenger.  Makes me laugh that they included the T.

This last photo is from T1.  She pinned this little note to the wall above one of my craft tables.

Precious!
