around the house

So...I went on a decorating-frenzy this weekend. Too much time on my hands. Too many poems to procrastinate writing...Too much access to a glue-gun...

{Project 1}
I made this for the kitchen, for fridge-picture-overflow:

I think our kitchen needed a little something on the wall there. Plus the fabric is really fun--I just bought a quarter of fabric, glued it to the back, then glued some ribbon on, not a hard project at all!
Close-up of the fabric--birds, swirls, flowers!

And...couldn't resist making a wreath for the inside of the house! I wanted to resist, I KNOW wreaths are not practical for us since we'll be moving this year, but Oh well. I figure I can just gift it to my neighbor if it looks like it will be destroyed upon moving:

 I filled it out a bit more later, so its fluffier in real life than in this picture. I had an old book leftover from a previous book-page-crafting project (which I also changeda a little this weekend--it was sort of plain, so I added a cute little bird graphic to it) and thought it'd be a shame to let all the pages just go to waste.

I also finally got a hook for our front door. We're not decorating for Christmas this year, since we'll be out of town, but I thought hanging a little ornament on the door would be a bit festive:

I like birds. I might just leave it up all year. And, I thought, while I'm at it, I'd post a picture of the cute new welcome mat I got for the apartment a few months ago:

I guess its a little autumn-ish, but I love the leaves and yellow and it makes me so happy everytime I see it! I suppose I'll just disregard the seasons and decorate as I like!

Ok. I think our house is decorated-out for now. 


  1. Wow, I LOVE the photo frame you made!! Where'd you find such a gorgeous frame?? Is it really easy to make? I might have to try one of those after the holidays...

  2. thanks! I already had the frame, I used it as a mirror while we were at Union and I just hadn't had any use for another mirror in our apartment, so I figured I'd use the frame for something else =)

    you should give it a try, its really not hard at all!
