First, the dry erase board. This was a really fun project and the part that I had the most difficulty with was finding my color scheme and realizing that I did not have a whole lot of patterned paper, so I need to work on that! I splurged on a Cricut Expression this past November and those things are pretty stinking expensive so I am trying to get some use out of it so that I can justify purchasing it. It is a really fun little gadget and I have gotten some use out of it, but I not nearly as much as I should. I got the idea on Pinterest from a posting from this blog . It is a really cute idea and you can hang it on the wall or put it on a counter or table with the stand on the back of the frame. From this idea, I have come up with a few other ideas, but I have not made them yet and they are gifts for other people so until they get them, I don't want to post them. I was a little weary as to how it would go with the dry erase marker - I was unsure if it was actually going to erase completely or just get smudgy. But it is great! Take a peek:
The next project was the Sock Bun. I have massive amounts of very thick hair, so again, kind of weary about this one as well. But, Sam liked it and so did I. I was kind of bummed because I did it a nite before work so I had to wear it in a ponytail and I did not get to keep it down. I did have to add some product to my hair because I also have a tad bit of a frizz issue. This idea was from this blog . I definitely recommend trying it. There is also a link to the video on how to do it. Looks like it would be difficult, but if I could do it, anyone can :-)
So those, my friends, are my Pinterest projects for the week. Please let me know if you would like me to make one of the I Love You Because... signs. They can be customized by color and I have several other graphics that I can use. I am selling them for $10.00.
