CRAFTS

6.27.2011
I had a bit of a crafting frenzy this weekend.  Here's a taste of what I did.


I got the idea from Pinterest.

Mine isn't as fluffy, but I love it.  For the blue I used some old jeans that had a massive hole in them...makes me like it even more...

Next up, I've been wanting to frame these pictures for months.

Jordan gave me this first one for Christmas while we were still dating.  We were going to Pirate Island for dinner and the wait was pretty long so we wandered over to Costco and Greg Olsen was having a show.  I told him that this was one of my favorite paintings and that I wanted to hang it in my future son's room someday.



I bought a very average looking red-ish frame and some gold spray paint and went to town.  I LOVE how it turned out.  Seriously, I am in love with this.


This was one of my favorite souvenirs from Jerusalem.  I love this poster.  It was hanging all over the Old City, because lots of shops were selling it, but I just love the colors and how it looks.  Every time I thought about how it was rolled up in that tube, sitting in a box, not hanging on my wall a little part of me wanted to cry.  This desperately needed to be fixed.


This one was a little bit more tricky.  Since it is from Jerusalem, it has weird dimensions, so I just had to find a frame it would fit in.  Someday, for another project, I need to get it custom matted, but for today, it gets to sit in this lovely black frame I painted blue.  

And on a side note...I want to buy this someday.


Don't you think they would look great hanging next to each other? And maybe with one of these on the other side: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

And this is the last little craft of the weekend...I saw a little tutorial [also on Pinterest] about how to make a ruffled shirt and I really wanted to try it out.  I decided I wanted to make it a little bit different than the one in the tutorial, I also love how this one turned out.

I know you can't see it very well, but that shirt I wore to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple I made!


I'll have to take some better pictures of it...

But there you have it...my weekend crafts.  All produced from one great trip to Savers.  [pillowcases for the red and white on the wreath, 2 frames and an orange/red long sleeved shirt]
