The Beautiful and The Diy-ed

I love this! You did an awesome job. I love re-using things. I think my Frankie would love it. I looked at the tutorial, it’s a bit more involved than I like to do. Thanks for showing! I loved seeing it!

I try to make the main aspect of all my projects be re-used if I can. It seems silly not to! Why throw out treasures? Haha. Your kitty is just adorable. Thanks for your comments, I love to hear them!



Before I abandon my cat for an entire semester, I thought I should do another update of her kitty cat tent. She looks silly, falling asleep with half closed eyes. This is how the tent looks in soft morning light, perhaps I will take another photo to better show the designs later.
The tent is made entirely of materials I already had on hand: old tablecloth/sheet material, lace cut from an old shirt, fake flowers and leather, and bamboo sticks. I used my acrylics to paint the tent. I tried to create a sorta whimsical pattern - not too “boho” and not too “cutesy”. The color choices were inspired by new dresser knobs shown in the back. Back side shown here. 
I stuck an old, folded up, flannel sheet with a cat print (that my kitty amusingly loves to sleep on) in there for a nice cushy base. 
This project was adapted from this tutorial.

After many cancellations and much rescheduling, my friend and I are finally going to celebrate our birthdays. Here is how I wrapped the birthday presents up for her. The envelope was already taped on so I just censored her name haha. 
The bigger package was just wrapped in some leftover kraft packing paper that I streaked with watercolor just for a fun, silly look. I then attached a cut out from an old Free People mailer bag to match the Free People-inspired card. I made the flower out of the same paper. 
The mini gift bag is made of some scrapbook paper. I attached the corners and the E after cutting them from the same Free People package.

The best part of my birthday is getting my free Starbucks drink in the morning.
