My current obsession...

Pinterest. Yup, I admit, I'm addicted. Which is taking serious time away from my craft room. Since building our home I have become obsessed with decorating our home, on the cheap! So that's meant lots of DIY projects and some furniture refinishing. I'm hoping to get caught up soon.

So far I've painted a set of antique coffee tables, an old hutch (lime green, that was fun!), a large U-shaped office desk for my craft room, a shelving unit for my craft room,

I've also made; drapes for my daughter's room, a message centre for the mud room, chevron wall art for the living room, and some vinyl wall word projects for the kitchen and laundry room.

On my to do list; paint two student desks for the kid's rooms, paint the boys' dresser, paint my daughter's bedroom set, paint my entrance table, make a headboard for my daughter's bedroom, reupholster our headboard, paint more fun art projects for the kids toy area and all around the house, and I bought another set of vintage coffee tables that I'll need to paint (they were only $5!). And when I'm feeling really ambitious, paint a huge piano that I got for freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

So that gives you a bit of an idea of what I've been up to lately. My poor husband cringes when he opens our garage, lol. But he also knows that it's saving him money... did I mention that we bought a puppy in May? Yup, that's been fun. The kids love her and are really good about taking her out, but who gets to take care of her while they're in school? You guessed it, me. :)

But I did get into my craft room today and made another card using my current favourite colour combination! The butterflies are from Stampin' Up! as is the sentiment with matching die. The paper is from My Mind's Eye (I think). Sorry for the bad picture, I still haven't found the best spot to take pictures.

Thanks for stopping by!
