Twleve Months of Crafts

get excited and make things

I don’t know about you but I pin lots of craft projects and home decorating ideas on Pinterest. Some are little projects that are totally doable in an evening or a weekend. So, one of my goals for 2013 is to tackle one craft project each month. Here are a few of the projects I’m planning:

These five will get me started though its already February so I will have to double-up in order to actually complete 12 craft projects this year. I have lots more ideas on my Crafty board if you’re curious. Go forth and be crafty!

Christmas in January?

Is it too late to show off my holiday decorations? I know I’ve already taken them down but its such a grey, miserable January that some holiday magic may be just what I need to put a glow in my day. So, please indulge me.

Hope you have some magic, twinkle and sparkle in your day!

While browsing through the latest issue of Budget Travel, I found a little one-page article about swanky LA-area hotels and saw this photo. First, the Hotel Erwin looks adorable and its located only a stone’s throw from the beach in Venice but second, I am in love with the decor. I think I might use it as inspiration for my bedroom which is in serious need of a makeover. The beside tables I have are almost idnetical to the one pictured and I just lovve the ocean blue walls and black fabric headboards. I think I could make a triangle quilt to mimic the bedspread and voila! my very own Venice Beach suite right here in Kansas City!

Maybe one day, I’ll actually get to stay at the Erwin too? We’ve been talking about an anniversary trip to LA and a visit to Disneyland!
