Easy frame makeover

Do you remember my shelf makeover I shared last week?  Today I'm going to show you how I made the frames (Its super easy!)

You need a wooded frame (needs to be flat).  I bought these at a yard sale buy you can find them at any craft store and even Walmart for about $1.  Paint the edges and let it dry.
 Pick some cute scrapbook paper and lay it face down on your table. then lay your frame face down on your paper and trace the edges.  Cut the paper out.  I used spray adhesive to glue my paper to my frame but mod podge would work as well. 
I used a printable from here for one frame

 and pictures of my girls for the other one.

Its quick and easy and can fit in any room depending on the paper you pick.

Painted White

I love yard sale season.  Even in my tiny town you can still find some good stuff.  Best deal this year, a fancy almost perfect Cinderella dress for $1next was this little shelf that was free!  It started like this.
 Added a couple coats of paint
 Then sanded, hung, and decorated.  My boring dinning room is looking much better.
I'll share more details on the frames next week!

photo a day challenge

If you follow me on facebook you may already know that I decided to try to do the 365 day photo challenge.  I want to slow down and start noticing the little moments each day instead of waiting for big things to happen.  For a long time I've been waiting and have been in the mentality of thinking once ______ happens blah blah blah....  Honestly I don't know what changed, I think it may have been gradual, but I'm tired of waiting.  Life is wonderful now and I want to live in the moment and enjoy it.  I don't know if what I'm waiting for will ever happen and honestly if it doesn't that's okay because I know how blessed I am and things will work out how they are suppose to.  So I made it through the first week of this challenge and I must say I am really enjoying it.  It helped me find joy in the little things and also makes me want to make my kids' day special and let them know how important they are to me.  So here's my week through pictures.

Must Make it Monday

I'm trying to get this poor neglected blog back up and running.  I love blogging and have missed it.  I also haven't had much time for much craftiness other then crocheting for my shop so I'm so excited to have a little more free time to create for my family and home!  Every Monday I'm going to share some of my favorite projects I've found that I just have to make!  Please share your favorites with me too!

Cuteness Overload!

Here are some of the pictures of my crochet products I recently received from some very talented photographers.  It makes all of those late nights and longs days worth it and kind of makes me miss doing custom orders.
