Hello to all Back Home Again readers....My name is Tracy. I blog over at Yea, I Know I'm Short. Holly was gracious enough to let me guest post for her today and I am thrilled to be here....so thank you in advance for reading.
I wish I was a crafty person. Let me begin by saying, I try to be. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don't. Most of the time I don't haaaa. I wanted a hobby to keep my brain moving and cure my appetite for some sort of art. I have a board on Pinterest called "I could make that." Well, I like to think I could at least try anyway.
I have made a couple things I am proud of though. I have redone some items as well. I bought a dresser on Craigslist for my oldest daughters room for $10 and re did it. Loved the results and so does she! I have made lampshades, tissue balls, and wreaths and rugs. Everything I have ever made has never cost me more than $25....thats my favorite part.
It really is kinda simple if you just try...so I ask you want do you want to try, change, or do to improve your home or life? Try it! I promise you will be proud of your results just because you tried.
Here are some of the things I have done....
|My sister actually made this for my husband, its all this cigar wrapers|
|plastic gutters that holds kids books|
|paper towel roll dipped in paint|
|Burlap wrapped lampshade and painted table|
|painted birds and paper flower|
