I am not the only one who is crafty around here. Mike can be pretty crafty himself. He made this bookshelf a few years ago for Blake. We saw something similar in a catalog but it was pretty pricey. I want to say it was Company Kids, but I'm not sure. Yea, it looks cluttered, but I have learned that there is no point in trying to keep it tidy looking!
This idea also came from something we saw, this time it was a Target ad. They still sell it in the stores, I believe it's over $50 and it's a lot smaller. This one he made is as tall as I am. Once again, major clutter.
And as I mentioned before, I wanted to make a monogram out of colored pencils for Blake's kindergarten teacher. We finally got it done. Mike actually did most of it. He painted the frame for me and attached the canvas (who knew Michaels doesnt sell anything but pre-cut mat board?) But this canvas was the perfect size. He also cut the colored pencils for me. I think it turned out pretty good! I'll have to post again with the other thing I made for her out of a mason jar and crayons.
I might post again tomorrow with what I found today at the catholic thrift. If not, have a great Memorial Day weekend!
