Miss Crafty Pants

During my two glorious days of "me time," was able to get a TON accomplished. It's amazing how quickly you can clean your entire house when a toddler is at his Grammy's :)

I also decided to head on over to a nearby craft store, to attempt my crafty abilities. Pinterest has inspired me to want to become this ridiculously crafty person. There are SO many things I have pinned, that I'd love to make. I wanted to start off with this adorable wreath.... No, this is not the wreath I made. It is however where my inspiration developed. Mine looks *similar* to that, as you will see. I purchased a bunch of supplies. It seriously took me 2 hours just browsing the store, and looking for all the perfect pieces.



Oh, & because I've never done anything crafty like this before, I had to buy a glue gun. And, you know my clumsy self got my first glue gun burn....



I swear, it's not as bad as it looks.




I wasn't able to find a letter "A" as large as they had their "H." I wish it would have been a bit larger, but it will do. Here's a close up of it. It is actually a slate blue color, with white polka dots. Oh, and don't think for a second that I hand painted those little dots. I was clever and used a pencil eraser :)



& here's my completed project.....




It's not completely like the original from Pinterest, but I don't think it's too darn bad for my first ever wreath! It took me way longer to make than it probably should have, but it was surprisingly relaxing. I need to find the perfect place for it, because it looks ridiculous on my front door with my oval glass, & it's just not cutting it on the couch ;)



I'm hoping to share with you many more craftiness projects in the near future. Up until now, the only thing crafty I could do was scrapbook [which I sadly haven't completed one page since Lincoln was born]. I need to get back into that soon!


I hope you all had a fun weekend, & if you haven't tried something crafty like this before, I strongly urge you to. You'll be so proud of yourself :)
