While I so enjoy all the crafty goodness that is out there on the internet these days, I am always fearful to try any of it. And with good reason.....I am terrible at being crafty. No creativity to come up with a project, no patience to take my time with it, try to short cut my way around it....and it always comes out looking like, well, crap.
I ohhhh and ahhhh over some of the gorgeous stuff that Jen from Tatertots and Jello can whip up in minutes. Seriously, where does she come up with this stuff? Like this precious Family Rules Canvas. I have been eyein' this for months...however, if I attempted it, it would be off-centered and the colors would not go together and I would end up putting it in a closet 'cause it just wasn't as pretty as this one:
Another amazing crafter I adore is Vivienne from the V Spot. She is the MacGuyver of Craftiness. She can repurpose anything. Just take a look at all the things she can do with spraypaint. She is amazing when it comes to organization. I need her for about a week. She could organize my pantry, re-do my mantle, decide what needs to go on the very blank wall up my staircase, make a survival kit for the car....I digress. This lady is amazing.
So when I saw Amber at Silver Lining come up with this adorable banner (complete with step-by-step instructions), I thought- I can make that!
We then hung it up.
hmm. why is it looking down? WHAT????
yup. Apparently, only the baby needed to be able to read it.
And that my friends, is why there will be no more crafty silliness going on in the Darling house.
But stay tuned, cause this momma knows how to create fun memories. And I can't wait to show you the turning-9-year old's birthday party in a fun, fun way!!
