Inspired by Pinterest

I got the sudden urge to do all things crafty yesterday. So where would I look for inspiration? Pinterest of course!

First, I put together a cheap bookshelf I bought from Walmart. To add some color, I used scrapbook paper for the back splash of the shelves.(I just used Mod Podge to "glue" in on and to finish it on top.) I figured I'd put this in Jaxon's room or my craft room. Oh, and I must give Jake credit for the scrapbook paper. He picked it out all by himself!

Next, I thought the house needed more decorations, so I picked a picture from our first dance at our wedding and blew it up to an 8x10 photo size. I found a picture frame at Walmart that had a matte in it and instead of leaving the matte white, I wrote the lyrics to our first dance around it.   Then by Brad Paisley.  :))

And if that wasn't enough, I also bought a decorative curtain rod. Installed it all by myself using Jake's power drill (it took me a while to figure out how to change out the bits) and then hung pictures from it! I'm not crazy about how the two pictures of the side hang, so I'm going to redo those later today when I buy some more ribbon.

I also am almost complete with another craft inspired by Pinterest. I'll add pictures of it later.

Here's a sign I made for Jaxon's room::

The baby is waking up so now I gotta go!!
