One of the projects I'm mid-way through is some Pinterest inspired artwork. It's been raining off and on for about two weeks which makes me feel like I'm back in Ireland visiting my sister BUT it does make for some moody pics of the ocean:
I found on Pinterest this idea to enlarge photos at Staples (they only do it in black and white). You tell them you want an "engineer print" and it's only $2.99. Before I sent it to Staples I changed the photo to be a black and white photo and then did some editing in Picasa. I lightened it, added a few highlights and added a slight black-ish frame around the edge.
Don't judge us by our nightstands. Or our uninteresting bed (a real lack of pillows)... these are all things that are in the works.
I found out the email address for my closest Staples, emailed the photo to them, told them I wanted it to be 24" x 36" and they had it done that night.
I might want to mount it on an ultra lightweight sheet of plywood but I had to see if I really liked it above the bed or not. If AJ or I don't love it (the jury is still out on my part, AJ hasn't seen it hung up yet) then it's not a big deal... only $2.99 gone.
And, if you need a little cute child fix... here you go. :)
This is Drew and his friend Mason, my friend Heather's cutie pie.
Check out Heather's fabulously cute first birthday party for Mason here... I will be featuring his second birthday at the end of the month after his Curious George themed party.
What are your weekend plans? Did anyone take up my idea for a "Weekend Dream List" in my last post? Here is mine for this weekend:
- Paint dresser (you'll hopefully see what I mean next week)
- Scottish party on Saturday night
- Plan fun lunch for Laura and Josh on Sunday
- Work on mailing list for real estate stuff
- Finish laundry
It's a small list because I think the dresser will take me a bit of time... a blog reader, Cathy, gave it to me! :)
