I was looking for a fun way to display lil man's wonderful art work.  This is what I came up with. 

 There isn't one site I looked at and thought, I want to do that.  I knew I wanted something that I could easily change out the art.  I started first with just the twine and art work.  I knew it needed something above it.  

I was going to take a piece of pallet and stencil some amazing quote about children and art on it.  Well that didn't happen hah.  I couldn't find a quote and I hate cutting out stencils.  

Then I discovered the joys of printing on fabric!  Seriously, you can run fabric right through you printer.  That opened a whole new world of ideas.  

So I downloaded a very cool font, monbijoux, from dafont,  printed each letter on its own fabric and enhanced it with stitches.  

I knew I wanted them to be linked together some how so I found some fun yarn from my stash and started wrapping.  Throw in a little twine and I love it!

Thrift Store Finds

I *love* thrifting.  Its a new found love.  I used to go and look for clothes, but it's really hard for me to find clothes that I like and fit right, so I kinda gave up.  Then last year when I really started crafting I realized it thrifting is amazing! I go about once a week to the 2 local ones.  About once a month I head up to Columbus and hit some a few up there. 

Heres my scores this week, I picked up a few things but these are my favorites!

 I found 5 copies of Jack and Jill childrens magazine from the 1950's.  I love them!  The art work, the black and white pictures, its all so fun!  I have to idea what I'm going to do with them but I couldn't pass it up.
