I have been reading so many cute, creative, and inspiring blogs lately. {I hope they don't mind me linking their blogs....} It has really lit something inside of me. I have decided that I want to start being more "self-sufficient" {for lack of a better term}. I want to start making things for my home. Especially when it comes to interior design, remodelling, and things of that nature. There are a few rooms in my house that I would really like to paint and spruce up.

So after looking at some great blogs, I decided to make one of the projects I saw. After work, I ran to HOBBY LOBBY {which is heaven on earth for the crafting fiends, which I have recently become} and after Lola went off to sleepyland, the creating began. I had a lot of fun making these and was pretty happy with the end result, especially since I was just winging it!

I got the idea from another blog where she linked us to THIS website. {scroll down to see the free pattern that you can print and use!} I switched it up a little and I like how it turned out. Hopefully this "bug" will keep up and I can continue to create. The next step... actually painting one of the rooms in my house... why does that seem so daunting to me?!
Sorry the pic is so dark, I took it after I was done last night. When I get them hung tonight I'll take a better pic and post that too.

P.S. Heard the news a bit ago... R.I.P. M J. Thriller is awesome... and so were you, back then.


  1. Very Impressive! I too LOVE LOVE Hobby Lobby! That place has everything for the crafty lady! I've found that blog stalking crafty blogs, as become a little bit of an obsession for me too! I have too many projects saved in my bookmarks, I need to get on it!

  2. SO cute Dari.
    You are just so cute.

  3. I love those. My house is totally lacking on art. Apparently I only like art with a price that lingers at around $40,000. I guess I need to get inspired and start making my own stuff too.
