Door Hanger and Quotes

I made these projects either during the week or awhile back, just never got the chance to post them so here they are:

One is actually just putting ribbon around a bought wooden letter from Michael’s and planning on hanging it on my front door soon:

Finished Product!


Then the second project that was done over the weekend was a quote: I plan on putting a frame around it once I find one that I like (or just end up making one myself )

Hanging up on my wall. I’ve got big plans for this wall! I can’t wait!






Holiday Bottles

Another project a weekend! This time I decided to use some left over wine cooler bottles and paint them.

First I used hot glue to write the words on them and then painted 2 layers of paint on each bottle.

The final touch was a glitter layer. I might had some festive accessories into them once Thanksgiving and Christmas come closer.

Happy Holidays!! Hope, Joy, and Love

Project a Weekend

Soo I’ve been pinning after pinning of DIY crafts to decorate my apartment and I finally have gotten the chance over this past weekend to start on that long list of things. Finally getting to decorate the place my own way! Also.. Sorry I forgot to do a before and after. I’ll be sure to do that next time and anytime after!

I’ll let the projects do the talking 🙂

ImageMy curtains headboard 🙂 Adds such a cute touch to my bedroom. Got my curtains at ShopKo for 5.88 a piece 🙂 (this was on a sales weekend)

ImageMy framed keys holder (take a $1.97 walmart black frame, $0.57 cents acrylic pant, and ribbon)                All under $5 Dollars!!

ImageChalkboard painted pan! Nuff said right?! ($0.92 cent flat sheet pan, chalkboard paint about $5 bucks, and chalk of your choice)  I added the cute touch of ribbon.

If you didn’t know one thing about me I love ribbon, I have stacks of them ready to use for any occasion.

Stay tuned for more DIY project a weekend crafts!

Made it through

….another weekend. But this wasn’t just any other weekend. This was my BFA Exhibit weekend. This was the Logan Film Festival Weekend. This was the “fringe” design weekend. This was the redesign of 100N Weekend. This was my parents coming in for the weekend.This was the last weekend of doing projects! By this time next week I will be done with college! I will be done with school projects and sitting in classes. I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe I am going to be graduating in 2 weeks. Thats a short amount of time when you think about it. A lot can happen in two weeks. 2 weeks of waiting. 4 days of getting through my last classes. 4 final projects due. I’m so excited!!!!!!

I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago. I’m wiser, I’m more open and outgoing, more creative, more natured, more traveled. 4 years ago I was graduating high school. Now I will be graduating college. A lot has happened in 4 years. A lot will happen in the next. I know I may not have a set path on what I am doing with my life in the next  couple of months, I know its up for grabs on the outcome of a job will be, I know I have no idea where I will be come August, but I do know its hard for my mother to let me go, I know my dad will guide me and support me through my decisions, I know my sister has got my back on whatever I do, I know my man will be there for me and keep on motivating me. I do know that I’m excited for whats to come and I can’t wait for what God has in store for me.

God has a path for me, he has plans for me, I know it may not be as fast as I would like it to be or as clear as I would, but I know its there and no matter what I have faith in him that what ever does happen will be for the benefit of me. What ever path he leads me on will be the one for me. I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago, I’m stronger than I was at the beginning of my senior year, I’m wiser, I’m focused. I’m stronger today than I was yesterday.

Bring it on world. Bring it on
