A couple things...

First, I got my new Toms in the mail this weekend, and I am in love.

Second, I crafted my brains out this weekend, and had so much fun listening to conference, while feeling all domestic.  I love my apartment, and I am loving it even more now that I am doing some fun stuff with it.  I was gonna write a SUPER long post with bunches of pictures but I ran out of steam, so I will do more next time. For now, here's a couple pics of what I did this weekend:

^ This is above my couch. Its made with toilet paper rolls and love.  (Which I hear is the same recipe for most marriages, right?) 
Inspiration from here.  But don't go there because you will like it better than mine.

Most of what's on the wall is made/painted/re-purposed by me! 

It was great fun, I had about 14 projects in my mind to do, and narrowed it down quite a bit.  You see, I am an all or nothing kinda gal.  I get super amp'd for something and I go all crazy, and then it gets kicked to the wayside as soon as I see something else that is shiny and pretty and get all crazy about that.  So when I have a moment of lasting enthusiasm for one thing, I am quite happy when I finish it.  I think I have a version of ADD that distracts me, and makes me loose all motivation to do anything productive.  

I give you exhibit A:

(I was trying to figure out what would look good in the frame.  At least I ruled out "lion face.")

Aaaanyway, I will post more pictures in the next couple of days of my actual apartment, and show my other projects, cause I know you are just dying to hear every detail.

What? You're not?

Well, again, at least my Mom is.  Hi Mom!

ps. Wasn't Conference off the hook?  Er, I mean spiritually uplifting?  I for one came out of it with a resolve to spend less time on Facebook/Twitter/Blogger and more time really living/being productive/serving/reading.   How about you?

I'm exactly the same about crafty crafts. I have a mental list of about 10 things I'd like to work on and then I see craft blogs and get even more ideas. It's a never ending cycle. But it's so satisfying when one get completed.

You're projects are so cute. Can't wait to see more.

Such cute DIY decor! I love the toilet paper tube art. So fun. Keep up the great projects...I am like you, always have a list of a million crafts/projects I want to do/try. Never enough time in the day, huh?

I made a really cool toilet paper roll art hanging that is in our bedroom! I will have to post pictures so you can see. It was so cheap and looks cool! I didn't know they had a website about that kind of art! I will have to check it out.
