Yes, Yes ladies and gentlemen...I have joined the masses of pinterest. Well actually I've been a member for while now, but just getting time to let the creative juices flow! (Maybe I will actually keep up with this blog now :) )
So first off, I set up my sewing machine (that my awesome grandma got me for Christmas!)
So I attempted my hand at mending some shirts that needed it. Went quite well, if I do say so myself! It's not a beautiful sewing job, but it got the job done!
Next, I decided that to make a rice bag -- you know the kind that you can use as a heat or cool pack-- for Matt because every time his body gets sore, he always says he wants one. So I found some fabric left over from our wedding, cut it down and sewed it up! I think filling the darn thing with rice was more difficult than making the silly thing!!
Regardless, they all turned out great!
Apparently, I got the craftiness going and I finally used the 16x20 Shadow Box frame I bought from Kohl's a while back. Me being the pack-rat that I am, I kept a lot of little mementos from our trip to Key West and our wedding reception.
I cut all of our names off the card envelopes, you know on the front where it says your and your husbands name, and lined the sides of the frame, then I added to
Our cake topper
A piece of my dress
and a few more mementos from our wedding ceremony and reception.
The self adhesive backing on the frame made it really easy and quick, didn't have to waste a lot of time and supplies securing everything down individually!
Working on a couple more projects that I will keep updating on!
