Feelin' crafty!


Hello, my name is Elise and I'm hopelessly addicted to re-decorating. It's a harsh truth. I have more bedspreads than anyone could EVER possibly need. I just get these little ideas into my head and have strong desires to re-design my bedroom all the time. Problem? NOT CHEAP.

So this year, my goal has been to re-decorate using things I already have. Last years bedroom: Chocolatey brown, tan, and pale blue. This year's bedroom vision: Re-using the Tan comforter with lime green and deep purple accents. Gosh I love change.

Project #1: these cute baskets. I bought them last year (the light wicker color fit my color scheme, plus they fit quite nicely under my bed.) This year I wanted to get those cute colorful fabric pop-up boxes that Target sells, but I stuck to my goal and bought purple spray paint instead. (Approx. $15 cheaper.) I'm so pleased with how they turned out! I'm going to get some cute lime green ribbed riboon to tie in a bow around atleast one of the baskets. I also have cute green sheets and I'm going to make some purple pillows for the bed- that'll be project numbero dos.

Project #3 will be picture frames. As much as purple is in right now, nobody has cute deep purple frames. I think I'll raid D.I. this week. Try to stop me.

In other news, this past week was my final week at Mill Hollow. I cannot believe it came so quickly! It completely crept up on me. This summer was probably the hardest to say goodbye to. And the previous two summers were rough. I LOVE my new friends I made this summer.

In the hallway of the office up at camp, there are bunches of creative posters hanging with "pictures" of the staff from past years. Some of the posters go back to 1982! (Now, I know that's not that far back. Considering that MH has been around much longer, but 82? I wasn't even concieved then.)

So with a little help from Cupcake and Copper, I created this masterpiece to represent this summer's staff. It's a beaut, isn't it?


Last, but not least-
I move to Logan on friday! I'm not quite ready to let go of summer, but at the same time I am SO ready to be back in good old Cache Valley. Fall is such a fun time too.

All in all, life is good.
