My parent’s don’t have to worry about me being an “I can’t” person. Ya know, the downer, the pessimist. Well, at least not when it comes to projects and being crafty. When I see something and like it but am unwilling to spend my money on it, the following phrase is usually the reason: “I can do that”. It can be a good thing because I really can save $ by making things myself. For example, I’ve recently taken up crocheting again for all my baby props. Even though I get called old lady for it! (My dearest friend, you know who are you if you’re reading this) On the other hand I say it so much that there’s literally not enough time to make everything I would otherwise buy, so I end up without a lot of things.
Pinterest. Heard of it? Understand it? Scared of it? Addicted??
My answers: yes, no, yes, not yet.
I hate the beginning when learning a new online social thing. I hate not understanding and feeling like I’m not using it to its full potential. The previous reasons being why it’s taken me so long to start “pinning”. So, hey, if you’ve got any pointers please leave them here or if you follow me on Facebook and Twitter you may do so there too. Now those 2 fellas I understand!
Despite my frustration I did find a DIY project within the first hour of browsing around and decided I could do it and tackled it the following evening. Here is my version of the Ruffled Lamp Shady by Crafty Texas Girls
I really enjoyed this little project and think I’ll hang on to this lamp for a bit longer now!
