So, I've been up to some crafty craft things lately...I'm sure that's utterly surprising to you. :)
But guess what. Remember those shutters I told you about? Yeah. Those. Well, they are still sitting in my entry way...looking exactly as they did when I picked them up off the side of the road that wonderful day. I know. I just can't decide what to do with them/I'm trying to finish my other projects first. They will be conquered...soon.
What I HAVE been doing though is...
THIS done with paint chips but realized that doing it would take an awkward trip to Home Depot where I try to subtly take far more paint chips than what's necessary for "painting a room". I had a bunch of paint and so decided to use the idea but paint it instead!
So, for once in my life I tried to be totally and completely precise. I used my cutting ruler to measure it and traced my pattern over and over...and over...and over. Yeah, it took a while. Then I started painting all sorts of random colors which took for FREAKING ever. Oh my gosh. Seriously, to do the 2'x2' canvas it took me about 6 hours to paint. Yeah, I know. Ridiculous.
So, I painted and painted some more and finally ended up with my finished product which turned out pretty cool. (the picture above is almost the finished product...my camera died and I can't find the charger...story of every bloggers life right? ) I love wow factor that takes 0 talent! :)
Let's see, what else?
I cut my own hair today. I FINALLY did it. As in I've been trying to get the guts to do it for the last month. I cut Jason's hair. I've been doing it a while now. I have been letting my hair grow out but still need those trims to keep from looking scraggly. I HATE paying all the money to just get a trim though. boo. So, I found a website that gave a tutorial and it actually stinking worked. Like it's straight...totally straight. I was very impressed.
I posted more bags in my little etsy shop. (I woke up this morning to find that I sold one by the way! woohoo...its a little light green and grey number that I didn't post here! :) ) yay. Anyways, I really I like them. I used to do this style back in the day. It's my first bag I made and actually liked some 6 years ago. I wore that thing until it was all faded and yucky. So check it out yo.
I just really like to sew. It was half way encouraging that when I made this bag 6 years ago it was a struggle and took forever. I was quite the novice sewer back then. This time though it was much easier...oh good. Apparently I've improved. :)
And that's a few things that I've been up to as of late.
On top of that I've been learning a lot about food, our place in the food market, and ethical buying. All overwhelming topics and yet important to understand. But THAT my friends is for another post.
Have a great week!!!!
