Around my house

I got a few crafts done. So here they are...I saw a butterfly collage on Ali Edwards blog, and I loved it, so I did my own smaller version.
Julie gave me this old metal flower coat hanger. It's cute and fits perfectly in Brinley's bedroom.I made these because I needed a punch of color in my kitchen. They were sooo easy to make, and I love how they turned out. I think less than $3.50 each. Gotta love scrapbook paper!
The side table in our living room is actually a fold up wooden TV tray table. It's ugly! I made this "table cloth" from a yard of fabric. The edges are even done yet. I just threw in on there and left it. I need to paint the legs of the table along with finishing the edges of the fabric. Oh well, just one more project to be finished on the list of a million .

Your house (from what I have seen) is adorable! I might have to copy you on the little pictures you made for your kitchen.

I pronounce you the queen of crafts!!! You are so creative. Glad we're friends so I can copy them.

We should be in bed, but I always check blogs before bed. Would much rather be looking at you and chatting rather than commenting on your darling blog.

I have this little problem, I am wide awake at night and then can't get my butt out of bed in the morning. I don't know if I get jazzed because I actually have a minute by myself or what, but lately I feel like I could do anything around 11-12.

Arah, your pics should be in the Better Homes and Gardens magazine. They are so good!! I love how crafty you are. One of my projects is to get the girls to paint some pictures on canvas for the walls in there room which have been blank too long. I love Brinley's flower...so cute. I hope I can finally get sickness out of my home to get together with you. I swear everytime I want to plan a play day one of my kids gets sick. I can't wait for the warmer weather. I feel like a shut-in lately!!

You are amazing! I feel so uncreative- someone has to show me a pattern for me to know what to do. Maybe once we have our own house (or at least will be living somewhere more than a year!), I will feel more motivated! Anyway, thanks for the ideas!
