As an adult, this decorative ADD hasn't subsided. However, with a decorating budget of next to nothing, it's hard to find ways to change things up.
A couple of months ago, I made this ruffle pillow using one of Sam's t-shirts and some batting I already had on hand. I think it adds a nice little touch to the bedding we've had for almost five years.
For Christmas, my sister-in-law made us this awesome frame with maps of the cities we have lived in. When I was trying to decide where to hang it, I thought it would look nice next to one of our engagement photos across from our table. But, when I held it up next to the photo, it felt like it needed something else.
I've been seeing cute, yarn-wrapped letters popping up all over the place. I decided to make a letter "P" to balance out the new frame. I didn't have any yarn, so I used twine instead. I cut the "P" out of cardboard and wrapped it up using occasional touches of hot glue to keep everything in place. It's a little imperfect because I drew the P free-hand, but I kind of like it that way.
Sam finally got around to hanging up the new additions and I think it turned out great. It makes me happy to look over and see something a little different.
