she's krafty

Whenever I do anything crafty, I think of the Beastie Boys song, "She's Krafty." I'm sure they intended it to mean something else besides a mom of young kids doing crafts, but I rarely pay attention to lyrics I just like to dance to the beat of music. Back to the point of this post....I've been tapping into my creative side. I bought mod podge and had some fun. I turned some ordinary shoes into a hipper look and turned a boring stool into a hip and colorful stool. See pictures below. Sydney helped me create the funky stool picking out the color of paper and sayings and stuff. It was a fun project to do with her. I've also started to teach myself to crochet. I made a headband for Sydney and want to learn how to crochet a fun little flower to put on the headband. I like to crochet. I like to make a project and see results immediately. Yes, I wouldn't call myself a patient person so I tend to do projects that I can do in a small amount of time.

Who knew you could mod podge shoes?? That's cool. It's kind of like a different form of scrapbooking...I like it. That stool is super cute.
