Craft Time!

Who doesn't enjoy craft time? I have just gotten into it myself. I am following some really great blogs that get me in the sprite of crafting.

I got this frame at TJ Maxx for $2. It was an ugly gray, no wonder no one wanted it.


With some pink paint I got for .50 cent at walmart this frame looks girly and preppy. 




Cute?

Also I got this really cute plate for $1 at TJ Maxx. A large candle now sits on it in my bedroom.

 

To Do List:

Recover from last nights "fellowship" with an old college friend.  (happy hour turned into late night trivia)

"The boys' " two younger brothers are coming to stay with us AKA cleaning house...again


                           (Yes my other half is not smiling)

Tanning bed

Gift for house warming party with weekend

Read Never Eat Alone before Saturday (can I do it?)

Isn't crafting addicting?!? I partially blame the blogging world for my crafting too :)
