Some Projects...

On top of having two little ones, I have been doing some small (and I mean small) projects. Here are a few:

This is my mail sorter. I can't stand mail on the counter, it drives me nuts. I found this tutorial online and modified it to fit my needs. I wish I would have had some red fabric so it coordinated better with my ktichen but I just used what I had on hand.

This is my cupcake wreath. Those are cupcake liners scrunched together! I made this wreath for 3$ which makes me like it a even more :)

This is a "clip art rail" that I found online. I hate throwing away Colton's art work (I don't know why, it just makes me feel guilty) and now I have a place to hang it all up! I didn't take into account that he would rip it down from his crib which is why all the art is on one side. Anyways, I think I am going to mod podge some cute paper onto the close pins to make it a little bit more interesting. Eventually there will be a cool quote over the top of the art rail in vinyl. One thing at a time....


Oh and as you can see, I painted over this frightening mural:

Funny, I totally have that paperclip rail flagged on my "to do" project list for Landon's art work too. I'm hoping to modge podge mine too! Great minds must think alike. I definitely like the blue much better than the mural. Cute mail sorter too by the way. i can't wait to see some photos of you guys sporting your new accessories! =)
