Wall Art

I finished my first project for Ellie's room on Tuesday night. Working on a tight budget, I had to get creative, and I did this little number for only $15! I was so excited :) I asked Adam if he would make us dinner while I just crafted...and he said yes! Mr. Wife to the rescue. I love it when husbands are awesome like that. My next project is going to be a crib skirt...I have never done that before, so we'll see how that goes! Oh, and thank you guys for your sweet comments to my pictures :) You sure know how to make a pregnant lady feel attractive! You guys rock.
Steve was so cute & stayed in this box the whole time I crafted :)
I used embroidery hoops (which come in the wood color), and painted them white
This was some of the fabric I used...I wanted lots of variety
Then I put the fabric into the hoop and cut around it...SUPER easy.
And here they are! Cute little circles to put above the crib. Love it!
Happy Friday everyone! Adam and I are planning on chilling out this weekend and doing a lot of nothing. Sometimes you just need a break from doing things and living the adult life. Can I get an amen?! Being an adult can seriously suck sometimes. Go to work, come home, make dinner, clean the house, catch up on randomness, and by the time you are done, it's time for bed & the things that you actually WANTED to do, don't get done. So, with all that being said, we are going to hang out, NOT clean the house, NOT do the laundry, NOT make a huge dinner, and DO some things that we feel like doing- maybe watch a million episodes of the office, catch up on "husband & wife time" (ahem), watch movies, go on some walks, and go out to get ice cream.....sounds amazing. This all starts........right now.
Love, Krystle

wow, Krystle! What a great idea! I love your creativity on a limited budget... I may borrow your idea to spruce up our bathroom (which looks kinda blah). Your baby's room is going to look very cute!
Have fun on your relaxing weekend. :-)
