Crafty.

I have this tiny vase in our bathroom, that is so cute, but I thought to myself that I needed some color in there. Flowers are out of the question, because Mika loves to eat them. (annoying)

I'm not sure if you guys remember when I posted about my Christmas decor in the studio two Christmases ago (how has that much time gone by? I am old), but these wrapped sticks came to mind, for adding some color:

So, I went out last night and harvested some sticks. :) I was able to find about five teeny sticks in our driveway. Bam.

I pulled out the yarn that I found a couple of weeks ago at a thrift shop from this pom pom DIY project, and started wrapping. Easy. You don't need to use any glue - just tie a tight knot on your stick limb, then wrap over any overhang from the knot. At the end, tie another knot, and clip close with scissors. I liked using yarn versus embroidery thread (like I did the first time), because it's thicker and wraps faster.

and here she is:

(I took this photo in our bathtub, hah. It made for a perfect little photoshoot spot. If you're into having photoshoots of sticks wrapped in yarn, tucked into vases)

There it is in my bathroom (On the counter - I'm not sure if you can even see it there. Please excuse towels draped - We don't have towel rods yet. Also excuse my gross after-work self!)

I need more accessories and to fill stuff in a bit, but the newly wrapped sticks make me happy :) As do my air plants hanging on the wall. Why do girls love plants so much?!

  5. Siempre habrá una razón por la cual podrán comprar Bolsas Michael Kors Precios de los minoristas en línea. Los compradores de hoy que estén interesados en comprar Michael Kors Rebajas podrán descubrir cómo pueden obtener los mejores resultados que siempre quisieron simplemente haciendo ruido con lo mejor de Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet que ofrecen más allá de precios asequibles.

    Dessutom med så många alternativ att välja mellan, har det blivit praktiskt taget omöjligt för köpare att ta reda på hur de kan köpa Designer Michael Kors Väska Rea online utan att behöva investera för mycket pengar eller tid i scouting den lokala marknaden som annars skulle tyckas omöjligt att göra först . En riktig äkta Michael Kors Rea skulle kunna ge dig tillbaka tusentals dollar och det är något som de flesta inte har råd med. Du kan faktiskt köpa Michael Kors Plånbok online.

    Maintenant, la question se pose de savoir si vous pouvez réellement trouver en ligne authentique Longchamp Soldes bon marché qui sont vraiment authentiques et la réponse est oui, vous pouvez! Un des sites les mieux notés et les plus populaires pour localiser le Sac A Main Longchamp en ligne parfait pour votre collection personnelle est eBay. Rappelez-vous, juste parce que vous êtes en mesure de magasiner en ligne Sac À Main Longchamp sur eBay à des prix incroyablement bas ne signifie pas qu'ils sont faux ou de qualité bon marché.
