My husband works in construction, so this is normal in our house. And God always provides.
But here's the catch....
It's winter, so I want to buy stuff.
Something about being stuck inside, compounded by the regular nesting instincts of pregnancy makes me want to craft and create stuff. But creating can so easily cost money. Money better spent on heating bills.
So I decided to take on a series of pretty projects that use only things I have around the house. Here's what I've created.
Step 1. I had broken the glass in one of these frames and had kept them around for a project like this. I covered the cardboard backing with 2 layers of burlap.
Step 2: I looted the basement for a variety of knobs and hooks I had laying around and attached them with screws to the cardboard.
Step 3: I Dropped the finished product on the floor and subsequently spent the afternoon gluing it back together. You can skip this step if you're not a clumsy dork like me.
I hung them behind my bedroom door.
I hang my earrings through the holes in the burlap.
What does it say about me if I have more miscellaneous knobs than jewelery to hang on them?
EDIT: The linky party was causing my blog not to load properly, so today's linky party has been canceled. I know that sucks. Sorry!
