Gettin Crafty With It...

So my heart is still a little wrecked and I am still spending a lot of time praying and thinking about Africa...but I know God is going to show us exactly what to do.  Stay tuned....

In others news...
I decided to get crafty last week.  If you know me at all you know that I am lacking in the creative area.  I often tell people that I was born without the creative gene.  However, I am great at copying other people's ideas and that is exactly what I decided to do.

Here is a picture of my living room curtains before:



Looking really 90's don't you think!

Here they are now:


I got this idea from The Lettered Cottage.  They are actually drop cloths from Lowes.  I painted my rod and then hung the cloths from drapery clips...about $20 total!

And since I was feeling good about my first project I decided to make a roman shade for my playroom window.



Not perfect but pretty good for $10!  I got this idea from A Penny Saved.
