Craft time Thursday!

I don't think I'm crafty enough to make this a weekly thing, I really just wanted to mention that it is Thursday! Woo!

Also I made a calender, inspired by Design Mom, she's super cool.

I was originally going to use a standard cork board, but I like that these could be wrapped in cool fabrics to make them even more exciting.

The things I used:
(4) 12"x12" cork board things
(4) slightly bigger pieces of fabric. I didn't measure these at all just laid the cork on top
and hacked away.
Scissors to cut the fabric. Ya know.
Random tape we had.
Lots of paint cards from Lowe's, I'm not sure if taking this many colorful cards is illegal/frowned upon, either way no one said anything to me. So heist away!

Again I used some random tap we had lying around, it was either that or Elmer's glue, which would probably have taken years to dry, so I went with the tape. The cork boards I bought were super convenient in that they came with the white sticky squares. The squares are also the worst thing ever to try and tear apart and remove the paper from, if there's another brand/better product I would recommend that.

All finished. It took me like 20 minutes, 10 of which was dealing with those stupid sticky squares.

I wasn't sure about these pins when I bought them today, but they looked nice once I got them up.

Nice and easy and created enough of an impact that I felt like I was actually making progress towards our goal of getting the house ready for the house warming party. Hooray!

Operation: Not Crappy Graduation Dress Complete!

Drum roll!

Super short drum roll!

It's a little bit baggy, but all in all I like it.
Mainly, it looks good on Hannah that's the important thing.

I'm not sure what's next on the agenda. I've got a couple of projects yet to be completed, so maybe I'll start up on those.

But first my baby sister graduates tomorrow and then husband-face and I need to care for some devil chickens this weekend.

Hannah as a ghost!
