Another piece of progress

Today's menu consisted of lots of fabric, hot glue, and staples --provided by my friend, the electric staple gun. (Insert Tim Allen's Home Improvement man-bark here!)

I started out by recovering a bulletin board in my son's room. Super simple, quick fix for an outgrown memo board. One thin layer of batting, wrap it in fabric, add a few little details, and done!

I thought the nails and hooks were very masculine!


Then I tackled some wall art for sister's room. This time I covered three 16x20 canvases with fabric, attached fabric letters, and embellished with scrappy flowers and buttons.

I'm very pleased with the outcome.

Mostly because I love this fabric soooo much! I really don't think I could dislike anything made with this.

It's going to be a sad day when I either 1) run out of fabric

or 2) run out of walls/windows/pillows/thingies to cover with it.

Oh, and I finally am starting to figure out the manual settings on my DSLR! I've been trying to learn myself, because that's how I roll, but until today it didn't really click. My kids' rooms are hard, because the lighting is bad but I'm finally getting it! Excited!

Pinterest Wreath

I've recently become addicted to Pinterest. Specifically, the iphone app. It's so fun to peruse the pictures while I lay on the couch or while hubby watches sports on TV. I have tons of pins on tons of boards! Last night I made my first Pinterest craft-- a scrappy fabric wreath!

It's no secret I like bright colors! I really love orange, and I think it looks great on our dark red, slightly outdated front door.

It even fits nicely behind the storm door. Win!

I used a large metal ring that I found in the jewelry section at Hobby Lobby for $2.47. Stuck a small nail in the back side top of the door and hung the fabric loop on it. Done. And Simple!

What do you think?
