So my goal is starting a new blog and being the crafty person that is hiding inside of me. I want to be a well known blogger, a well known crafter, well in the blog/craft world at least. I don't ask for much. I really have the want and the drive for it. So come January 1, 2011 I will be going full force on this and I will be moving to a new blog, I've created "CRAFTIFIED!". If you go to the link, you can see it is in the VERYYY beginning stages. I hope to have it all done ASAP! I want everyone to be able to send me their craft ideas, I'll be having giveaways, sponsors, highlights, guest posts, and I showing all my ideas and well... the possibilities are endless!
Crafting can mean soooo many things so I'm including them all, sewing, scrapbooking, stamping, art, and anything else you can think of. I'm open to ideas!
So PLEASE join me (in my non-begging voice)! Help me complete my goal for 2011! I am thinking positive and I hope it's a wonderful year for everyone!
Happy Crafting to you all, and happy holidays! See you in 2011!

Okay so I started out with more supplies than I needed, or that I ended up using. I always get so excited going into the Dollar Tree and I have all these great intentions and then it goes out the window. So total cost for this was actually $2!!! I started with this....

Cosmo Cricket Letters and the "arb" I cut out with my Cricut. The little board was actually something that I won a long time ago and was just sitting in my office collecting dust and waiting to be refurbished. I'm sure it's happy now.
So in other news, I've been in a Blog Hopping mood. I've been to the ends of the internets and back and I have found some amazing, creative, fun blogs that I'd like to share with you. So click it up and check out these gals!

I knew that I wanted something similar and by no means was I going to buy a decal to put up because I figured I could do it myself. :) So this is what I came up with... and my daughter loves it, so that's all that matters.
It's not nearly as full but I really didn't want to "clutter" the space too much. I mostly just wanted the effect, which I got and I'm happy with.
As you can see, it goes all the way to the baseboards but you can't really tell because it's partially hidden with the nightstand, which is okay because I thought I was a bit dull anyway.
This is a bit more up close. You can see a little more details to the flowers. The tree trunk and branches were all hand painted on with regular wall paint. The flowers were a bit more tricky. I cut out the flowers with my cricut and rolled the edges with a pencil to make them 3 dimensional.
The center of the flowers are the flat sided marbles, I really don't even know the purpose of those other than I've seen people make magnets out of them and I've seen them in goldfish bowls. Who knows?!?
I spread out the flowers throughout the wall and slightly onto the next wall, to give the effect that they are being blown off the branches. My daughter loves this!
Here you can really see the 3-D look of it. Everything was hot glued onto the wall and I love it. I don't think we'll be redecorating this room soon so it's there to stay for a while! :)
I'll be back to show you the next ongoing project in my house soon! All to save a few bucks!
