Nothing super profound to say today, except I'm tired. But that's pretty normal, unfortunately. So, I thought I'd share with you my latest decorating projects:
First, this is the only "fine art" in my living room...and it's actually scrapbook paper! The colors in this line by My Mind's Eye matched my throw pillows exactly, so I decided to frame some of it. I was really cheap about the frames, too. I bought one every week for a month with my 40% off coupon at Robert's (Provo Craft). So, they were each around 6 bucks. I think one week I even had a 50% off coupon, so maybe it was only 5 bucks that week. The papers were like 75 cents each, and then I put that picture in for now. Eventually, I'd like to get a decent family picture and do a square crop of it and frame it there instead. But this one works for now.
Then, a few weeks ago I went to Deseret Book and they told me I had like 10 dollars worth of point credit there (I don't know how I earned that many!) and did I want to use them? So, there were these cute little embroidered hanging signs for 3 dollars each, so I bought 3 of them. They say "Love," "Family," and "Prayer." I had initially planned on hanging them on the wall somewhere, but I couldn't really find a spot where they looked right. So, just for kicks, I hung on one the bracket of the shelf over the fireplace (I'd say mantle, but it really isn't one...) and thought it looked pretty cool, so I added the other two. I assure you that the plastic cup is not part of any crazy decorating project...it's just sitting there.
So, my cheap decorating idea for the month: Frame pretty scrapbook paper and find out if you have free product coming to you anywhere. Then be creative!
