Arts and Crafts
Over the weekend I took it back old school and had myself an arts and crafts day. When I was younger my mom had our kitchen island FULL of arts and crafts, which I was totally into. I would invite my friends over not to play but to "make something"....yes I was a dork in that sense but it has definitely helped me become a more creative person. I probably have that to blame for the reason I chose to major in Art and then realized, after talks with mom and dad, that I probably wouldn't find a decent paying job out of college so I switched to Sociology....much better, right?! HA!
I'm all about decorating my home with art done locally which gives me a bigger sense of pride. Right now a friend is working on a painting for me to hang in my dining room and I can't WAIT for it to be completed! I'll of course show it off once hung! There's so much cute decor out there that looks handmade I decided to give it a try myself.
Here is the wreath I made Sunday for football season! I'm so proud of it, even though my mom AND dad have both told me it looks like a life preserver. Hell it picks up on the coastal vibe of my home, which was totally unintentional but fitting! ;) Until next time Happy Coasting!
