My crafty attempts


I recently tried my hand at a few crafty projects. The first is a dress I made for Piper and then one for Mia. They are very simple dresses but I really enjoyed making them something myself! I will be making a few more for the girls so that have a few simple sun dresses for the summer that did not cost me a whole lot to make. The second project was Ikea magazine holders that I gave a decorative touch to. I have had the magazine holders for years and I recently reorganized some things and put them on our buffett. They were plain light wood and I really wanted to add some personality so I used Amy Butler paper and mod podge and this was the end result. I really like the way they turned out and the little touch the print added. I really love fun and funky accessories but I usually do not spend the money to buy it, so this was a fun way for me to personalize something and give it a look I enjoy!
