...AND feeling crafty!
So this is my third edition of a crafting post, and I hope you get a small fraction of the enjoyment looking at my diy crafts as I did in making them. Yesterday I had the day off and I decided to finally get around to doing some projects I had seen via the blog-o-sphere.
Let me start off by saying I have a small addiction to frames. Every time I happen to pass the local resale shop when they are open (which is a rarity) I find myself drawn inside to the back of the store where they have frames of all sorts and sizes. Doesn't matter how ugly they are, if they are cheap I buy them, big or small I collect them all! ;)
Anyways, I have had quite the collection growing under my bed and I finally found use for 6 of them:
#1 Magnetic Chalk Board Frame

Sheet metal: $2.50
#2 Dry Erase Frame
via the same crafty chic here
Thrifted frame: $1
Paint&Paper on hand
#3 Letter art
Did you know Hobby Lobby sells single letters?
And for you photographers out there, how fun would it be to do this yourself?
(I think I could use the challenge...)
4 letters @ $1.99 ea.
Thrifted Frame: $2
Grey Mat matte made from a poster board
#4 Scripture Picture framed
I printed this picture I took on TYB IS., GA and put a favorite verse of mine on it.
Thrifted Frame: $2
Picture printed at home and matte made with scrapbook paper
#5 Earring Display
I have so many earrings and I only wear dangles, so this was a perfect way to display them!

Frame: on hand
Picture wire: $1.97
I know this has nothing to do with frames but I adored the idea of having a bouquet of pinwheels. (Don't judge me; I am a kid at heart) :)
Tutorial found via Lisa Leanord here
My sister, Lauren came home from work and I helped her make her own chalkboard frame & pinwheels to match her room!
Aren't they adorable? :)
So, what are you waiting for?
Get crafting! :)
