Do you remember my shelf makeover I shared last week? Today I'm going to show you how I made the frames (Its super easy!)
You need a wooded frame (needs to be flat). I bought these at a yard sale buy you can find them at any craft store and even Walmart for about $1. Paint the edges and let it dry.
I used a printable from here for one frame
and pictures of my girls for the other one.
Its quick and easy and can fit in any room depending on the paper you pick.

I love yard sale season. Even in my tiny town you can still find some good stuff. Best deal this year, a fancy almost perfect Cinderella dress for $1next was this little shelf that was free! It started like this.
Then sanded, hung, and decorated. My boring dinning room is looking much better.
I'll share more details on the frames next week!

If you follow me on facebook you may already know that I decided to try to do the 365 day photo challenge. I want to slow down and start noticing the little moments each day instead of waiting for big things to happen. For a long time I've been waiting and have been in the mentality of thinking once ______ happens blah blah blah.... Honestly I don't know what changed, I think it may have been gradual, but I'm tired of waiting. Life is wonderful now and I want to live in the moment and enjoy it. I don't know if what I'm waiting for will ever happen and honestly if it doesn't that's okay because I know how blessed I am and things will work out how they are suppose to. So I made it through the first week of this challenge and I must say I am really enjoying it. It helped me find joy in the little things and also makes me want to make my kids' day special and let them know how important they are to me. So here's my week through pictures.
Has anyone tried the 365 or photo a day challenge or doing right now? I'd love to see your pictures!

I'm trying to get this poor neglected blog back up and running. I love blogging and have missed it. I also haven't had much time for much craftiness other then crocheting for my shop so I'm so excited to have a little more free time to create for my family and home! Every Monday I'm going to share some of my favorite projects I've found that I just have to make! Please share your favorites with me too!
Felt dolls from Love Charlie Anne
Anthropology knock off hair clips from Little Miss Momma
I love this display from the Crafting chicks.
I NEED a wreath like this from My Blessed Life.
