I'm Still Here :)

I haven't had a whole lot to post lately since I dropped the camera on the pavement and it shattered (yes shattered). Totally no $$ in the budget for a new camera so I am having to rely on my Iphone, which really doesn't take the best pictures. Here are the photos I took right before the camera hit the pavement. It is really quite depressing...

Also, the majority of my crafting is for gifts right now, and since my family does read this blog (well I hope they do) I haven't been posting what I have been up to lately so AFTER the holidays there will be lots of photos of fun stuff.

Note to self...do not decide to make multiples of a project that takes more than 3-4 hrs to complete...

Anyways, I did get around to a project that I have been wanting to do for A WHILE. Recovering our dining room chairs. They turned out REALLY great and the best part is the fabric was only $10 at Joann. My lovely friend Bobbie actually bought me the fabric. I totally love it!
The color looks really off in this picture (the iphone), no its not seafoam blue, but a very light blue green color. Our mismatched chairs look quite dapper now! I only have 4 chairs, but I didn't even finish my episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before I was done. It also only took ONE yard of fabric, which ROCKS. Anyways, I am very happy and my chairs are fugly no more :)

I will be back with dinner tomorrow :) Now to figure out what that will be...

recovering chairs is so fun, and I bet you thought.. "WHY did I wait so long to do this?" LOL.. that is what I thought when I finally was brave enough to recover ours.
You did great!

I want to do chair cushions for my dining chair. You have inspired me, maybe after Christmas I will actually do it! Great job!
