I love to craft! Sometimes I am successful, sometimes it's a "Pinstrosity"! Here's a few projects I have done for my home, family, and/or friends.
One of my favorite board games, Settlers of Catan, was a fun project to recreate in Photoshop and cut out with a laser! I used watered down paint to color the different sections. There were lots of design flaws in this project, like the sides spreading out, but it was such a good learning experience!
I am OBSESSED with seasonal wreaths! Maybe one day I'll create a separate section on my site for just wreaths...until then, here's a spring wreath made from about 5 containers of ribbon.
My dear friend from college, Stacey, drove out during spring break last year and we etched a wallet for her husband on the laser. Stacey included their business logo, several drawings from their girls, and their sons' footprints! It was such a fun project!
"Hey Grandpa - can you make my cat a cat tree?". This is not my project, but my Grandpa's, and I had to include it on here because my kitties LOVE it! He split a log from our cabin in the mountains, made a cabin, and reused a bunch of random items to make this epic cat "tree".
One of my first projects where I tried to figure out how to use a jigsaw. It is not one of my favorite projects - but I learned a lot while doing it!
I raided the scrap pile at home and found a bunch of rusty metal that I put together in the shape of an owl. Grandpa welded it together for me!
These chairs were sitting on a lawn with a free sign next to them. I used them for several years until I fell through the fabric.... I watched a YouTube video, ordered fabric, and Grandma and I recovered the chairs! This is one of my favorite projects to date!
With 2 days left before spring break ended, I got a wild idea and decided to create a pallet wall! I used pallets from the farm and stained them with all the leftover stain I had collected. My grandpa was instrumental in getting this project started by installing the furring (sp!?) strips to the studs so I could nail the pallet boards.
I got this table free when I bought the house! Using white chalk paint and gel stain, it transformed the look of the entire kitchen!
