Busy weekend!

So, I start my part time job tomorrow, after my full time job. I am really excited about it! It is a nice balance to my crazy full time job. As this is my last free weekend, I got to work! Here are some of the projects I worked on today. 

Have you been seeing everything jute wrapped lately? I sure have! I ordered a drink a few weeks ago that came in a commemorative glass. Uh, hate those but wanted to save it for this project. I think it turned out really cute. I am into other things besides flowers these days, so I thought these cute berry things would be a good alternative.

On a whim, I made one of those adorable "Lost Sock" boards! I had all the items around the house already so decided to go ahead and do it.

I have been on the hunt for some different lamp shades for some time. I really liked some I saw at Pottery Barn but they are around $50 each. $50 times 3= I don't think so! I had been debating wrapping them in jute as well. I figured, what the heck and tried it! 

I think they turned out great! I love the color and the texture.

Wrapping the jute became therapeutic after awhile :) A great project to do while you are watching tv!

My Arkansas basket sure has come in handy. It has become my project caddy! I attempted to Mod Podge a map to the bottom and hated it. I scrubbed it off and will start on my Razorback project soon.

And she is! What do you think? Funny story behind this one. This wreath is the huge straw wreath I scored for 50 cents. I actually bought a smaller rounded Styrofoam wreath and spent literally hours wrapping it making it perfect. I wanted each wrap perfect and not overlapping. It was ridiculous and I swore I was never making one again. My hubby came home from work and helped me finish. So sweet! I LOVE doing projects with him. He gave me an idea on how to expedite the process so I went ahead and went after the big wreath. On this one, I did NOT stick to my OCD rules and I overlapped like crazy. I actually like this one SO much more. 

The rosettes were fun to make. I followed online tutorials and cut a spiral out of felt and rolled it up. I especially like the two tone rosettes!

Love it! I'm sure I will make day.


  1. Cute! I am totally freaking out though, cause I feel like you may be my "sister from another Mister"...I am the exact same about crafts, and even though i'm not a Arkansas-ian yet, I already LOVE the razorbacks! I'm super stoked to have found your blog :)

    1. Arkansan- pronounced "our can sen". I had to ask the hubby! :) and I could not agree more!!! omg just wait till football season. It gets crazy over here! Are you moving to Fayetteville?
