I did a few projects this weekend. I did Joy's project from Joys of Home, Under Five Minutes and Under Five Dollars. I would link you to her, but I don't know how to do that yet. I'll have to get my computer savvy husband to show me. Joys of Home is an AWESOME blog with easy and cheap (my two favorite adjectives) projects to do. The project was an initial plaque. I did one for my son's room.
I painted a wooden plaque, modpodged some scrapbook paper onto it, painted a wooden letter, and then glued it on. It think it cost me around $3 and took less than five minutes. I love those kinds of projects! I also created a new vignette on my fleur de lis piece in my living room (see the post entitled From the dumpster to my den).
I have been looking at other blogs to get ideas on arranging things on tables and creating pretty groupings. I have trouble with that. I like it when accessories are layered and at different heights. Some people just have a knack for it. Another thing I did was I went with a friend to a scrapbooking weekend event and had a great time. Some people were there all weekend, we only went on Saturday. I am a beginning scrapbooker while my friend has been doing it for a few years. She probably has close to ten thick albums she's done and they are so cute. I wasn't sure if I should get into it or not, but now I know I enjoy it and like the idea that I'm creating something I'll keep for the rest of my life. Let me know if any of you out there scrapbook and have any tips for me since I'm new to it. I hope you had a super weekend and will have a great Monday!
