Taylor was sick this weekend with a double ear infection, not lovely
Because of it we did have to stay home all weekend long, lovely
Which left me with some time to do some crafting, lovely
We started a redoux of Taylor's room about 3 weeks ago, by painting the walls, putting up tongue and groove wainscoting and 6 inch baseboards. That part came out beautiful.
But as of Friday, books had not yet been put away, pictures had not yet been rehung, and a fun little wall art project I had envisioned had not yet been completed.
I changed that this weekend though. While Taylor and Syd napped on Saturday, I ran out to Joann's to pick up the fabric and created this fun little display.
Now friends, please pardon the pictures. They were taken by my camera phone. While my dear husband, who is actually the handiest man I know, can fix almost anything, he cannot fix a Canon 30D DSLR camera. And someone besides me needs to tell him that. I have tried, but he keeps tinkering with it, vowing to fix it himself. Truth be told, I think he is trying to get me so frustrated with the whole shebang that I break down and tell him he can go ahead and order the 5D Markii he's been pining over. Well the joke's on him, I'll keep patiently waiting and taking pictures with my trusty camera phone :)
Sweet and Saucy Shop. They had theirs suspended from the ceiling, but I knew they would look just as cute hung on the wall. I picked up various sizes of embroidery hoops at Michael's from $1.29-$1.79 (I was surprised at how inexpensive they were), and then just cut out some coordinating fabric. I hung them with blush pink satin ribbon and voila!.
Taylor's room is a horse theme, so I knew I had to incorporate some sort of a horse silhouette into the mix. Since I don't have one of those fancy Silhouette machines, I just used my trusty old freezer paper method, and it worked out just fine. I think I will redo the silhouette of her though and use a picture of her in a ponytail since her mass of hair just sort of hides her sweet face.
This was a fun and easy way to get my much needed creative juices flowing again. I'm realizing that since starting back to work full time, I need to do at least one creative project a week to still feel like me. This is just what the doctor ordered!
And Taylor is doing much better this morning, but the poor little thing is going to take the day off of school since she did have a slight fever through yesterday afternoon.
