crafty




OK, So I'm way behind on posting my crafts from my monthly craft day. Here's the catch up post.


We made these cute little photo albums out of toilet paper rolls. Some really thrifty person was looking at her old toilet paper rolls and decided to make something out of them.

We painted shirts. I made these 3 shirts for Max. I had to do a Halloween and Christmas one. I'm such a holiday person.



I decorated some more cans. I wanted to make some to go on these sconces.

plain and boring



Much better.



Or do I like this one better. I can't decide.


I have them hanging here in my dining area. I've had the two different ones up for awhile. I might just leave them both. Adds character. ;)


With the other can that was supposed to go up to match the other sconce.
I put it here on the desk. It makes a great pen holder. or whatever I end up shoving in it to get it out of the way.

Then we decorated picture frames.

plain and boring



much better. Although I'm still not done with this. I have some more decorating to do.



I made this one for my mom for Mother's Day. It's a picture of Max with the blanket my grandmother made. (my mom's mother) who has past away.
I also like the words, inspire, love and strength, extraordinary on it. It reminds me of my mom. she is so wonderful! I love her very much!
