Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

Sew Simple

My project for the week: Fabric Covered Canvas

With a few days off and trying not to do too much as I continue to heal from surgery, I found a quick and simple project. From Pinterst. Ofcourse. A fabric covered canvas.

I just used scrap pieces of material I already had from previous projects.

I didn’t want the exact same style as the one shown so I switched up the pattern a bit for a more asymmetrical look.

Then add two flowers to it.

Super simple. Really quick. And if I can say so myself adorable.

Ah. Another finished project. Love. Now what to do next

Project Makeup

One thing I have enjoyed through the years is makeup. Shocker Im sure. And up until now I have just used makeup bags and everything is just kinda thrown in there. Not really easy to find things all the time and gets kinda messy too. So I set out to find the perfect way to organize my items. Here are a few things that caught my eye and interested me a bit.

Laura Thoughts

So my decision was made. I was gonna make a magnetic makeup board. Perfect. Now where to find the perfect “board base”

Goodwill never fails me. Seven dollars for this beauty.

All I needed was a metal sheet. Paint and more paint. And BAM! Beauty! Haha.

One white spray paint can, sample size paint in a coral, then a thin meta sheet all from Home Depot for under fifteen dollars.

So there it is my new magnetic makeup board that is so convenient to use when I’m getting ready.

l . o . v . e

Aw, February is here. And along with everyone else I’m sure when this month comes to mind you think of hearts and flowers, etc. But more importantly I think of my sis, Bre. Our Valentine baby in the family. With her bday right around the corner my momma and I set out on a shopping trip. A success it was. I introduced my momma to Hobby Lobby 2 hrs later and only about half way through the store we decided to check out. Haha. Also an introduction to Gordmans was in order. I just love both those stores. I saw some cute storage items that I may have to go back and purchase as a new project Han and I want to work on is our pantry!

Along with shopping we also went and got our nails done. Such a fun treat that I enjoy especially when they give a hand massage.

I have the cutest Valentine gift for Lani

Pink scrubs & and princess Veggie Tales. Adorable, right?

Last thing: Hannah showed me the cutest thing for the “love month” from ( Funny things kids say. You must read. They are hilarious. It made me miss my Lanna girl because she would say some things just like those kids!
