So, the dresser is finally done. And now I am working on the nightstands, one is completed, but I’ve been getting distracted doing other crafty projects. Sorry about the quality of the pictures below, camera is dead and without new battery/charger.

Completed Dresser :

Nightstand Before:


Kissing kids memory box:

(Didn’t take a before photo, but believe me, it wasn’t cute) Before, this was a gold box with a horrible picture of a bloomed flower. It was a labor of love sprucing this up- it took many coats of paint, and lots of patience, yarn, a glue gun, an image and a button to make this complete.

Petal Lamps:

This mini-project was really easy. The lamps shades were originally made of paper- lantern style from IKEA at about $6 a pop, but they needed a little re-do. Silk flower petals from Joann’s, a ruler, pen and a hot glue gun are all that’s needed.

Love words. (picture)

I went to , entered in various words like:love, family, friendship, marriage and the site scrambled the words into this image. Then I took an old frame that was laying around slabbed some new paint on it, cut out scrapbook paper to line the image, and added in a border with green yarn and a glue gun!

And, that’s a wrap!
