My quest to find my inner crafty-girl one small project at a time.

Only Fitting

It was this weekend last year that I completed my first DIY project. I made my sunburst mirror just in time to hang for my youngest peanut's first birthday party. I hung it proudly over my mantle and crossed my fingers that someone might notice and comment on my craftiness. (No one did, but whatevs) Fast forward 1 year and here we are, the eve of her 2nd birthday and 2nd birthday party. Only fitting that I make my return to my blog after a 2 month hiatus and start posting again.

My mom kept telling me that I was going to lose followers if I didn't start blogging again. Low and behold, she was right. When you only have 35 followers, it kind of hurts to lose 2, but I would have dropped me too I guess. Anyway, I have my sea legs now that I have been working full time for 2 months - I've gotten my groove in the the classroom and at home and am now able to start working on some projects around the house again. So, I hope those of you that are reading continue to check in on me and see what else we have been up to around here.

And, surprisingly, I have been doing a few things here and there. Remember these sconces from long ago?
And the epic fail that resulted when I tried to spray them in the humid, spring air? No? Well, let me refresh your memory.

Um, yeah, pretty awful.

A few weekends ago, I tried them again and just decided to go 1 color instead of the 2 tone affect. I think they came out much better this time. In fact, they are almost Tiffany blue, what girl doesn't love that?!

And, in the dining room. Yeah, much better... They still are very traditional, which isn't really my thing, but I think the fun, bright blue color kind of off sets the tradition. And, they were free so it only cost me a couple of cans spray paint!

Now they even have candles in them. Even better. The dining room is slowly coming together. I have a few more updates to reveal soon so stay tuned!
