In the Northeast we’ve had a snow storm literally every other day for almost an entire month now. Which stinks for driving (unless you have a Subaru) but is wonderful for pictures. We live in the middle of a trifecta of a school, a park, and a large cemetery; all of which look gorgeous with a 4 inch sheet of white lain over (that might be a made-up word). I’m a geek for creep and love the old headstones and crypts of the cemetery and thought it would be nice to troop over in our winter boots and take some pictures. Let me tell you, walking through layers of snow-ice-sleet-ice-dirt was not easy but I think well worth it
One of the crypts was open and was making creaky scary movie sounds…like-zombies eating you because no one can hear you scream-sounds, no lie
Oh and we got 2 bunnies the other day. So here’s a picture of them humping, you’re welcome.
I have to confess an utter addiction I have and you may have already guessed it…dumpster diving!
About 1.7 billion dollars of products are tossed by retailers each year so why not capitalize on all that free?
I’ve been doing this for a few months now and let me tell you, I wish I had started this years ago!
This lovely frame was tossed behind a craft store, it held a certificate for best store or something. After a few coats of my favorite coral spray paint it had a whole new life. I originally intended on doing a chalkboard with the center but there was this corkboard I had found from a separate dive that was throwing sideways comments at me. So I decided I’d chop it up and show it who’s the boss (always him).
After much mess of particle board and paint here she is:
I can’t wait to start pinning my to-dos, shopping lists, love notes and random balls of fur I find lying around… just kidding or am I?
Happy upcoming St. Valentines Day!
Was about time to change the Christmas decorations so I figured it was about time to geek it up!
It took me about 15 minuets to draw in everything adding in the detail of the dalek, cyberman fez and bowtie. Well worth it though…
It definitely came out lovelier than I expected. I even incorporated it in my new dining nook
Disregard the ugly walls. Spring will bring a new splash of color. (Don’t you just love the burlap?)
Crummy blurry pixies are to keep you in suspense!
There were so many things going on last weekend and I feel like it all flew by so fast! Zazzles and Willy Nilly came over and we had a big sleepover. We all wore footie pajamas and stayed up late talking about boys and painted each others nails-NOT! I wouldn’t have minded doing all of that but Thanksgiving or should I say Pre-Black Friday and Black Friday itself messed up my week and I was more tired than 2 rabbit’s in a wool sack.
Happily I was rejuvenated and fully rested by the time Saturday rolled around and ready to get some stuff done. I had a mental list of about 27 thousand things to do, luckily we only did half
Zazzles has some really nice pictures and talks about our weekend together here.
Check it out and come back soon.
Here’s my finished product! For November I tackled this twine wrapped box I’ll be using for jewelry and makeup. It looked simple enough:
Step 1. Get box
Step 2. Get twine
Step 3. Wrap box in twine (with help of tacky glue or sticky rice haha!)
One thing I didn’t expect was how long it took. My box was probably about 16X8 and about 4 inches tall and took almost 2 hours for 1 box! Maybe hot glue or a helping hand could’ve made it go smoother but it’s done nonetheless. I will be making 1 more box eventually when I’m not feeling lazy.
