I'm enjoying these merit badges made by Lee Meszaros this afternoon. I was always secretly envious of my big brother in boy scouts with all his badges. Now we can all buy these uber cute merit badges for our various accomplishments in everyday life.
Merit Badge for Knocking Socks Off
Merit Badge for Sweet As Pie
Merit Badge for Pushing the Envelope
I'm getting ready for my trip to Vancouver and I have a ton of work to do. Why do I put things off until the last minute? I guess thats how I roll.
I made these flowers from this tutorial with Jeffery Rudell. Go check it out because it is surprisingly easy and relaxing. I made this bouquet to greet me when I first come in the front door. It adds nice color and personality to my entry way and the best part is it NEVER dies! The paper I used was mostly from paper sample books and junk mail. I happy with the patterns and colors I was able to find and mishmash together.
Woah. So I've been mia for awhile now. I think I'm going through an anti-social phase, but don't worry I still have lots of cool DIY decor to share. I have been busy making little projects for the new house. The first one I want to share with you is this crocheted bath mat I made out of old sheets. The basic idea is to rip your old sheets and fabrics into strips and then crochet with those strips. Just to give you a general idea this bathmat was about 3/4 of a full size sheet. I liked the ripping part of this project. I was able to take out a lot of aggression on the one sheet!
I wanted to keep the bathmat quiet because of all the patterns already happening in the bathroom. I debated for a long time on how to finish the mat. I ended up going with a red trim to make it stand out from the floor just enough.
The texture of the rug is really beautiful and functional as well. It is actually really cushy and comfortable to stand on. And the best part, you can just throw it in the washer/dryer when it starts getting funky.
