Early morning brainstorming

I’ll be the first to say that if you were to step in my house and look¬†at the blank walls¬†you would ask “how long ago did you move in here?” and I will nervously respond “about a year and something months ago” and try and change subject. We went to Tee’s uncles house on Saturday and let me just say that they have a very lovely home. Its something out of a magazine. They have decorations and pictures all over the place I bet if it was like my home it wouldn’t have the same feel to it. When you walk into their home you feel welcomed it feels like a home. I think their vibes have to do something with that too. While Tee and his uncle were chatting me and Kason took a little walk around their house. WEIRDO ALERT!Anyways every room had a picture or some pictures of smiling family members. They also had this picture were my aunt (we are all family now so why not right?) was sitting with her mother and brothers/sisters in a living room. Then in that same frame was a picture of a home. I am thinking it was or still is her moms house the house she grew up in. I don’t know that picture really caught my attention. She is a successful women so to see where she grew up and where she is now is amazing. They are spiritual people they have a wall full of crosses of all sizes and they also have decorations with scriptures on them. Over all I loved there home.

 

So this morning well no actually yesterday afternoon, I was going trough my little arts and crafts section. Its just a little corner in my bedroom with my school stuff.¬†And I found some little picture frames that I had put away so I grabbed Kason’s cake smash pictures and put two in each frame. I then went to the living room and started to look around that wall was too big for three small frames it would look odd so I then took a few steps and ended up in the dinning area. And perfect. So I grabbed the hammer and some nails and hung them there. I shoulve taken some picture but¬†really and I mean really its not big deal. So now¬†when you walk in bam!!!!!!¬†You see them three frames just hanging there inviting¬†you to view them and admire them.

 

Today on my drive to work while listening to my morning music I thought to myself I should def get a bunch of frames and decorate them myself. Because I went to hobby lobby and Michaels and let me just say I can get about 16 frames and pay the same amount at the Dollar Tree or maybe get about 4 at Ross or Marshalls. And I like to decorate anyways so it works out. As soon as I walked in to work I got my laptop out an started opened up Pinterest and found so many ideas NOT just for frames but decorating period.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† One of my favorite ideas is hers.. But I’m thinking of maybe doing mine with glitter

I don’t have a picture of the following one because I’ve thinking about this one for a while! I want to get a picture frame and hot glue pearls (not real ones of course you would find those on my ears lol)¬†all around it.

                            Something like this, but in one solid color and a bigger frame

Okay I think that’s it for this one, I have more ideas I just don’t want to make this like two blogs long. I think I already did. But when I do this which would probably be by the end of this week before I start school again I will post pictures of it all.

 

DIY Party/Picture/Room Decoration Banner

At first I was going to order a banner off of Etsy, but then I thought about it the banners that I had see where about 30-40 well the ones that I liked anyways. They were great and I admire the people that make them so much creativity in one person is very dangerous (that’s what I like to say about myself) So I looked Mr.Know it all (Google) for “DIY party banners” as sure enough all this posts and pictures of very cute banners came up! I went crazy. Yall just don’t understand I will spend all day on google or my favorite place in the world Piterest looking up anything and everything under the sun. I just love making things. I don’t make them often but when I do I take great pride in it!

Oh and by the way his theme will be (drum roll)

“Little Man” which is basically mustaches and ties and his color scheme is mint blue and red

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†I was originally going to make the banners my self but then I went to target and found this…

Banners

 

They were $1.99 each I thought that was pretty good so I got 2 red and 2 blues I ended up going back and returning 1 of the blue ones because when I get in my zone I change my mind more than once.

Then I went to Hobby Lobby that’s like the best place in the world besides Michaels of course!

I got some blue (mint) and red scrapbook paper, K,J,N (that one was for Noah) wood letters, red and mint blue paint, stencils, xacto knife I found a pink one, canvas and mustache stickers.

 

yay

 

So I took the stencils and traced the following on the mint blue paper “Happy Birthday Kason” I cut those out and glued them on the banners. I tried using the knife yeah im not very good that that so I stuck with the scissors. I already had printed out the mustache and bowtie and I basically traced them as well and glued them to the banners.

banners

And this is the finished look

tada

Then what I did with the canvas was this

I filled in the mustache with black paint

The letters were the easiest of course lol I just painted them

Letters

I will be putting the letters over Kasons bed and the banner and canvas will be put away.

I am still not done with the party decorations I will be posting as I go .Hopefully I can find the charger to my camera so I can take better pictures.
