Making my house more beautiful...

I started some projects during the great snow/ice storm of 2011. I finished a while ago but I just went to Ikea a week ago and picked up some picture frames for the projects. I have to say that I am in love with the finished products. Josh is so excited about them that he is hanging them today for me. I will add pictures later of what they look like in our room. I have not started my project for the living room yet but that will be the next thing that I do.

Winter Weather 2011...

Oh to be cooped up in the house for a week. It has its ups and downs. I have gotten an amazing amount of work done around the house, for my classroom, and the crafting has begun. Josh and I have been struggling since October to figure out things to do to decorate our bedroom. When Josh bought me my new bedspread and sheets for my birthday that are perfectly my favorite shade of yellow, I knew that I wanted splashes of color all over the room. 

While I am still on the search for an awesome colorful rug, some decorations for the dresser and an awesome mirror (because as of right now I have no mirror in my room), I have stolen an idea from my best friend to do yo-yo art. I LOVE it!! I can sit here and watch my new favorite show and work on these adorable crafts. I am so excited to finally have a direction to go with in decorating our room. Josh is excited! I love the fabric I have chosen so much. I even bought fabric that would work perfectly in my living room. I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet; maybe more yo-yos, maybe something else. 

I wish I had this much time all the time to work on things for our home, but knowing I would get cabin fever eventually I will look forward to spring break and summer in order to make more wonderful things for my house. 

On another note, my mother-in-law has a huge case of buttons and she is letting me use them for my crafting. Maybe I will be adding some to my yo-yos, maybe a remodel of something else. I could get used to this. 

Here are a few pictures of my fabric choices and my crafting thus far today! So much fun! I will definitely post a picture of my finished product!
