Twinkle Twinkle

The last couple of weekends I have taken a break
from cooking and cleaning
and have spent my time in my renovated room
with no natural light ~ creating

finally taking some of those things I have pinned
and made them for myself

I have also been having some fun with my chalkboard
wow ~ there are so many cool quotes and fonts
plain inspiration everywhere you look

since our Thanksgiving was last month I chose this one
as I thought it was a bit early for me 
to be putting something Christmas related on it

a couple of weekends ago I made these sweater pillows

again ~ crappy lighting ~ sorry about that!

found on Pinterest ~ a couple of sweaters from goodwill
some batting and stuffing and I used embroidery floss instead of thread

I have 2 or 3 more sweaters to do and 
can't wait to see how they will look on the couch.

This past weekend I made these...

egg cartons + paint + mini lights = cute!

I love them and they were too easy to make
again ~ another Pinterest find

so my little corner of the world is basically complete
that sweater hanging over the chair was one my Grammy Brown made me
and I cannot part with it ~ so after the chair gets recovered with this fabric
the sweater will become another pillow!

I picked this up on my trip 
and it is awaiting a perfect little spot of wall

thought I would take some random shots of my space
as I will soon be hauling out the Christmas wrap, ribbon and bows
and this will become filled with everything Christmas

yes that is my old stereo with a turntable
because you never know when the girls are going to show up 
and we will drag out the 45's and have a dance party!

see randomness and whiskers abound

along with peanut butter pie ~ to die for delicious 

and currently crushing on these ~ please come to Canada soon!

Happy Tuesday.

Look at you crafty lady - I love everything you've done! I especially love those sweater pillows. I need to get creative again - I have felt so paralyzed this past year, but need to get moving again on fun projects! I hope your week has been wonderful! Thanks for your support as always, sweet friend! xxoo

Those lights are SO fun! It's amazing what we can do with everyday things, isn't it?! And now I want Peanut Butter Pie too, haha!
