What I've been up to lately.

When I first started blogging at blogger it was about my family and my crafts and remodeling.
I've kinda gotten away from the crafts and remodeling...I still do them but I almost never post about them so today I thought I would show yall a little bit of what I've been up to.

Kelly gave me this mirror/picture frame/hanger and it was missing 2 hooks and was brown. I took it not knowing what I was going to do with it then thought it could be made into something cute for Drex's room...maybe for his hats and such.

Before..or during cause that's when I thought to take a pic.
After...just needs some pics of his cute face!

I made a few pony holders and matching earrings for little girls the other night...sorry the pic is so blurry-

I had some big pickle jars I keep cereal and oatmeal in and they were plain looking so I spray painted the lids and added a little twine with a decorative paper with what was in the jar with instructions n back.

This jar I bought at a yard sale,I wonder what was in it to begin with.

Last is my favorite thing to do. This sign is for my parents. They have it hanging on their porch right now. In the lower left hand corner it says est. '79.
I made Drex one with his name on it in bright colors,it's actually behind the Harrison one. 

So this is what I've been up to lately...I know yall were dying to know!

BTW, did you hear anything from the printing company about the banner yet? I never got a response to my email.

LOVE the coat rack! I so wish I had the ability to be creative like that! Okay, so it's possible the creativity is there, but the patience isn't!
