Like those soft little secrets that you tell to yourself.

Happy {i}NSD!!!! What are you doing? What did you do? I want to see some craftyness ladies! I was thinking of going to Oakdale to get my scrap on with my cousin but we ended up not going. I just get so lazy on weekends anymore. Oh well I can get my scrap on at home. Wish my cousin lived closer tho. Love to bitch and laugh with her.

I must make some stuff today. I mean it would be like a travesty if I didn't right? Seeing as its NSD and all. I will start as soon as this blog post is done.

I have made a few things here and there. This rag wreath is one.

I made it for my door using vintage fabric and a old wire hanger.

I also made a coffee filter light globe. I have no where to put it tho. I can't find the perfect spot. My house is sooooo small. Oh well I am sure it will find a home or get tore up lol! I am thinking the entry way. That is my next home improvement project as soon as the living room is fin. I have a few things in mind for that tiny place. Already have my light switch cover from anthro.When I took off my old one tho it was a big ugly hole and now I have to patch it. Just one more thing I can learn how to do on the internet. Hehehe!
(Pics will come soon.)

I am thinking of painting the tile black and white checkers. I can't really afford to replace them so that's the next best thing. Slap on a coat of paint (not sure what color yet) (really wanna do something with chalk board paint tho) and paint the door robin egg blueish and viola think that will be done. Then on to the rest of the house. Kitchen really needs some tlc. I think that will be a huge project and will be loooooooooooooooong! Need new cabinets, the whole shebang.

Living room is coming together. I have my frame wall up.

I stare at it through out the day and think "do I want that one here or there." I don't know that it will "officially" be done but that's ok. Think I need a coffee table and a area rug.

Thinking of painting the tv stand. Its black. Has glass doors that we took off because the ps3 gets to hot. I asked hubby to take off the back so we can use the doors again and I am thinking fabric curtains in the doors so you cant see all the dvds and electronics. Not sure if I should paint it white or turquoise. Hmmmmmm. Thinking turquoise.

Bought some pillows and am gonna doctor them up. Need a few more tho. I am still working on the wall above the big couch. It just seems so bare. Not sure what to do with it but I'll figure out something.

I bought this bench at Beverlys and painted it white.

Put some kitschy stuff on it and call it done. I wish it woulda been a old garden bench a little bit bigger but this will do till I find one *wink*.

Enough with the home improvement talk it is time to get my craft on! Stay tuned for the Kenner Road blog. I have a tutorial coming up on how to make stamped candles.

Oh and come play with us over at Mojo. My page I made for the challenge.

(used part of the Kenner Road April kit for this)

The blue flower is from Daniela's shop The Art Life and I made those pink fabric flowers for the second part of the challenge. Speaking of fabric flowers here are a few I made that would make good mom day presents.

and the link to the tutorial on how to make them! :)

Mama's day is coming up and every time someone says how creative I am I cant help but be grateful for my mom. She is why I am so crafty. My fondest memories of my childhood is her showing me how to embroider or us going shopping for ceramics to paint. Thanks mom!
