Pinterest Projects

I have been getting a lot of craft ideas from Pinterest lately.  Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to actually do many of the projects though.

But this weekend Doug and I set out to get a few started and finished, and last night we actually finished one of the three we started :)

Inspiration from here. I am sooo happy with how it turned out!  We don't have a fireplace so in the past we've always hung our stockings on the entertainment center.  It worked, but wasn't ideal because the stockings blocked most of the electronics, making it very difficult to turn the volume up and down or play a movie.  And this year, since Eli is up and moving, I was worried about him pulling the stocking holders down on himself.  We even threw in a couple extra knobs in case we need more stockings later.

The other two projects are gifts and in varying degrees of completion, but here's a little sneak peak:

My three projects, being painted

One project is a picture family tree, these little blocks will hang below the large piece with pictures of family members.  I got the inspiration from here, but mine is very different.
This is the top part of the picture family tree and a little peek at the 3rd project.
I wish I had time to do more things like this.  I've been having so much fun creating and tweaking them to be exactly the way I see them in my mind.
