Messy Weaved Braid

I included the weaving below the picture, because there's just no way I could explain this coherently. I have lots of fly-aways and layers in my hair, so the braid actually looks better messy than clean and tight in my hair. It's a nice style for a day of errands or just hanging around and nothing fancy. :)

Message boards.

I bought these little wooden quote signs at Michael's too. I love wasting my money on random art projects. But they were only a dollar, so it's technically not even wasting money..... Anyways...I painted them colors to match my walls, and then put the green one by my doorway adorned with my cute little message (I'm a total floor freak). I used stencils for the lettering too because my hand writing is horrendous with pens let alone paint brushes. But, they were fun to make and are cheap too, but I'm not sure what to write on my blue one....any ideas?

DIY Black and White Photo Frames

I really love buying those dollar frames at Michael's and then painting them or modge-podging them. The frames i used here were actually more like 3 dollars, but still....

I painted one a vintage white and then one black. Then I went over them with stencils in the opposite color.  So black got white, and white got black. There's some gray too.  Just really easy and fun. And pretty.
