What I've been up to.....

I used to be creative and crafty.....but lately I've felt like I've had not one creative thought in my head and that makes me sad. So within the last two weeks after Reagan came home from the hospital, I haven't been working a whole lot, so I've gotten in touch with my crafty-inner self and I've worked on a few projects I've dying to do!!
*yes, this post probably should've been on my personal blog, but I didn't feel like re-uploading the pictures....sorry.
I messed up the order for the before and after.
This is after. Found this fabric in the remnant rack at Joann's for $2!!! I recovered SIX chairs for $2! Love this fabric!


Before.

Made Ryan and Reagan matching damask skirts. Ryan didn't want a picture taken. Ryan's skirt had turquoise ribbon on the bottom of hers.

Chris says all candy corn ever made was made in the 1920's. He hates candy corn, so I made a wreath out of it to remind him of his love for CANDY CORN!!!
I love the Candy Corn Man hanging in the middle. Can't believe I found that. It's Perfect!


My Favorite. I found a tutorial for this pillow and I had been DYING to try it....and I did!!
The petals are made from Black leather. I think it looks great with my New white leather couch and Green walls. L.O.V.E IT!

I'm hoping this is just the beginning! It feels good to get the creative juices flowing again!!

I LOVE CANDY CORN! And Chad always says the same thing as Chris about candy corn. They must have learned it from you-know-who. I love all of your projects- great job!

PS The comment you left on my craft post made me laugh out loud. Seriously. Very funny.
