I finally decided to start a blog to give those of you with nothing better to do a little insight to my boring but crafty life. To be honest, I really just need an outlet where I can pretend someone is listening to me, because let’s face it, my 19 month old I stay-at-home with doesn’t care that I improved the value of our home by upgrading the kitchen cabinets with a little bit of glaze or that I up cycled his old denim jacket into a rad new denim vest! I mean really, it’s awesome. One day you'll see it!
Anyways, for anyone who knows me knows that I can’t go very long without taking on some kind of new crafty project. Pinterst has only fueled this flame and every day is something new. I’ve gotten a lot of questions regarding some of the projects I have posted on Facebook that I have done, so I thought by starting this blog it would give people who were interested a place to read my tutorials. I will warn, I am a bit scatterbrained, so this blog will be sort of a random diary for me, from everything to style and DIY projects, to my life events. I hope you all enjoy though!
With all that being said I would like to introduce my first post project. DIY AMERICAN FLAG SHORTS!
My shorts basically followed the same idea; however, I started out with an old pair of jeans. I always seem to get a project in my head at like 10 o’clock at night but, I don’t ever have the right supplies for the job. And again, if you know me, when I have an idea, I run with it. There is no waiting until tomorrow. It has to be done today. Well, that happened a few times with this project. First, I didn’t have a pair of shorts that I really wanted to sacrifice for the project…. so, I found an old pair of jeans I haven’t wore in forever and just cut the legs off.
They don't even look the same, do they!
And that’s that! Aren’t they just to die for!
