My crafty weekend

24 Aug

I was actually productive this weekend–and I enjoyed it!!

I had a stomach ache all day Friday but after enduring a whole day of work and then taking a nap on the couch, I decided to do something (despite my stomach still hurting a little). I was crafty! It reminded me of high school when I did stuff like this all the time.

Instead of try to explain with words, I will use pictures.

This picture frame had a very country bumpkin look before (forgot to take before pictures). It was just plain cedar-colored wood. To spice it up, I painted it gold.

I printed 4 wedding pictures in sepia tone. The frames and ribbon are from Hobby Lobby. I stapled the ribbon to the back of the frames and tied the bows. And then I hung them all by myself!

DIY Project #3

This had a picture collage from college in it before but it didn’t make our office! Now it does. 🙂
Although, I will say that I am going WAY overboard on the wedding pictures–and with pictures of Travis and me in general. There are hardly any pictures of anyone else in our house!!
Well, now that I’m done patting myself on the back for being crafty, I’m off to prepare dinner for Travis and some friends–I’m making lasagna for the first time. It’s in the oven as I type. Cross your fingers and hope it turns out ok! Or else we’re ordering pizza!
