Crap I’ve Made

Thumbing through my FFF this morning waiting for something to bite me……….inspire me….make me pee my pants.

That’s exactly what this gals blog is doing…….making me laugh so hard……. especially at this post……

She is a busy mom of lots of kids…….and God love her, she has the right sense of humor to get through it all.  Maybe that’s why she named her blog Crap I’ve Made.   Love her already.

If her funny stories didn’t hook me……….you know this would have.  Painting a piano?  YES!  She certainly has my respect!  I think she just broke the biggest “never paint wood” rule ever!  What a rebel!  I love her. DSC_1001I am just giddy looking at that painted piano!  Stunning isn’t it?

She also just re-did the children’s bathroom.  Dr. Seuss theme.

Hello……..Do you like my faucets?  I do…….I do like your faucets.  Good Bye…….

Isn’t she brilliant?  Using water spickets as towel hooks!  SHUT UP!

I love this fabric…….both of them actually.

DSC_0575   And it’s all those kids she writes really really funny stuff about!  Seriously, she has me in stitches today.DSC_0234  Like this……this is creative sibling rivalry…….don’t you think?  She said that one of these kids was more upset about the marker fight.  LOL  I can’t look at his back with out snickering.  DSC_0240When you only have one child like myself, you miss all the sibling drama……..

 

Now if you looked at her living room…….it doesn’t look like 14 children live there.  Love the book shelving…….and denim couches……I used to have one…….but….but….can you see her coffee cocoa table?  A galvanized water trough!  Oh my GOSH!  What a unique simple inexpensive idea.  Love it.decorating your living room kid friendly

Because she’s thrifty, she has figured out a way to get that stamped jewelry look on a budget.  She bought her stamping tools from Harbor Freight ($8.99) and simple washers.  They’re not sterling silver, but what a great idea for kids eh?

Simple tutorial on making lipgloss…..containers from the Dollar Store and she used Koolaid.  She is breaking all the rules……love it.

If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, then you know I have a soft spot for decorated onesies.  So cute.   DSC_0602She also has a tutorial on applying the fabric as well as a template.  And the birthday hat?  She shows you how to make a fabric birthday hat out of a regular paper one.  No pushing girls………   DSC_0261

Love the tie….

Well I won’t keep you any longer with my jibber jabber…..I know you’re busy.  Just one last thing before you move on……..I’m watching……..I’m hoping …..actually begging that you’ll leave her a wonderful comment letting her know how you found her.
