Projects

I have this friend, she is very crafty and talented, she is the kind of person who moves and has her house all set up the next day (and ready to host thanksgiving the next weekend), she is very project orientated and even has a blog to keep track of her progress, to top it all off she is super thrifty and does it all on a budget, she is an inspiration to me. I love projects too but it has taken me 3 months to get the motivation to clean up my basement so I can have space to begin, I have tons of projects and finally got going last night, Kate's birthday is St. Patricks Day so I am feeling like I should get things looking festive especially when I saw this banner and bouquet of shamrocks on a blog. Anyway, here are my finished products, I did spend about $15 on everything, I had plain green paper but I wanted something with some more pizazz so I bought some paper, I also had to buy string and buttons and glue but I'm happy with the way it all turned out.
My bouquet of Shamrocks on my entry table.
Banner of shamrocks across the fireplace, I opted for each shamrock being different rather than all just plain green, most paper I bought was double sided so I actually only bought 6 sheets of paper.
