Thank you to all who suggested pinterest it is the perfect inspiration site! I have attached some to wires to these little "floral headliners" and put them in a vase, but I still have quite a few just floating around our
apartment... kind of like a news-filled garden. To learn how to fold go here.
Heather had a great idea to figure our a way to attach them to the wall, I think that would be pretty rad, so we will see what I can come up with. She also suggested keeping the newspaper for wrapping paper like this:
I love it and I also really
want to try these nails because they are so unique...
For now though, these worldwide stories have become flowers, or gotten crumpled up and put inside my stinky flats! I don't know about you, but my flats smell awful. Like it's a real problem, and I feel fortunate to have found this idea on Real Simple, not only for my benefit but for my closet too!
The next thing I tackled was our bed, I have been struggling big time with our headboard! So I called my sister Nicole, who is awesome at all things crafty, and she gave me some instructions to upholster it. They were so easy I don't know why I hadn't done this sooner. It took me about 30 minutes total to get the fabric on and it turned out like this:
I picked the wrong fabric! It was deep navy suede which was gorgeous up close but in our room and in front of the window it looked black. Just not right, Jordan said it looked like a "playboy" bed. EW!
So I found a new fabric and now I totally L-O-V-E it!
Jordan got his sushi on
This awesome husband also took me on a date this weekend.
He has also been super busy with his business, and had meetings all weekend!
We had a wonderful long weekend, we recognized memorial day and even though it poured rain during our barbecue, had a nice time with friends and a great day off. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!
