Oi boy, peoples. The end of June and itty-bitty bit of July we have experience so far has been off-the-rocker crazy-busy and stressful. Once upon a time I was excited about the idea of moving and looking for a new place, but oh, the times how they have been changing. I hope this new place we found will be a bit more permanent because I don’t want to have to go through this again anytime soon…
Anyways.. in other news, as I mentioned a few days ago, another DIY project has been completed! This wasn’t a totally unique or personally developed idea so I don’t have my own tutorial to share. Instead I am pleased to share with you the sources for my project:
Purl Bee did this awesome clutch and I totally copied the crap out of it.
Because I was wanting to add a bit more something-something, I added some DIY tassels via Once Wed.
Here is my end result, which I am very happy with. I do love the Purl Bee one a little more I think, but I felt like taking a risk with the colors. Regarding the project itself — it sucked, I am not going to beat around the bush on this because I love you all too much to lie to you. It took forever and hurt my fingers. That being said though, I am not a pro needle-pointress, mostly because I am not a single lady living with thirty cats and/or I just haven’t done it much. The nice thing about it was that I could work on it whilst watching TV or on road trips. Maybe the whole project would have gone faster and maybe would have been more fun if I was a pro, but I am very happy with how it turned out and have gotten a lot of compliments, so I suppose it was worth it.
Hookay, well, back on the subject of moving, I have two weeks to pack, throw-out unwanted/unused things, and clean our current place — and I can’t wait to share our new spot. I love, love, love it, in a its-got-potential sort of way.
AND I still owe you some love on the garage sale and my Washington trip, rawr, why am I so busy right now??!
And I am le tired. Le shit.
