WOYWW

*Hey all - I just read on Julia's blog that we are supposed to ignore non Wednesday posts, after I'd posted and linked up of course! I just wanted to say I do it Tuesday nights because I'm in Chicago (so the linky is already up on my Tuesday night!) and I have to work early in the morning, so I can't stay up until after midnight (yeah, tried that a few times...I don't recommend it if you need to be functioning the next day!) and I tend cut it super close in the morning, so I can't generally start up my computer and link up on Wednesday mornings and still make it to work on time, so I've been doing it right before I go to sleep Tuesday night! But I really love being part of this community, so please don't ignore me because of this. Next week, I will set an earlier alarm to stick to the true Wednesday rule :)

I saw this super cute project and pinned it - of course! But, I don't want to just pin a bunch of stuff and not make it, because then I'll feel bad every time I look at my pinterest boards! So I decided to make it for the little table behind the couch.

I had a frame just chilling out with nothing to do, but the white frame had a white mat, but the mat wasn't white white, so I didn't love how it looked. I decided to paint the frame blue...which is not working out so well!

But the inside of the frame is looking good! I'm going to add something to the middle, either a row of hearts, or one bigger heart, I'm not sure yet. Also, I'm not sure why its sideways...

Well, now that you've peeked in here, head on over to Julia's and peek in on some more desks! You know it wouldn't be Wednesday without it :)

I love the inside piece. I'm sure you will like the frame better in the light of day (or after it has set a few days). Happy WOYWW. I'm # 30 this week and my time zone is even worse than yours (grin).

I would paint the frame white then distress the surface lightly with wire wool so a hint of blue peeps out. It would go great with that beautiful work you've created - love the sentiment. I think you have to put two hearts on as it's a poem about you and your man!

Well thanks to the wonders of WOYWW I’m here having a peek into your crafty world this week and there seems to be much going on.


I think your frame looks great Blue, it has a slightly ‘distressed’ look….really on trend as they say.

I hope the rest of the week’s turns out to be just as crafty.

Happy Crafting!

I was a bit confused by all that today over on Julia's blog. I type my post on Tuesday night and schedule it to go up on Wednesday morning, so TECHNICALLY I'm posting on Tuesday. Does that mean people are supposed to skip me? Katie, you could post your WOYWW on Sunday and I'd still visit :) I love, love, love this quote and I can't wait to see the finished project!!!

Adrienne said...

I love blue. Very cute!

Tracy said...

I have seen that quote on pinterest and loved it as well.
You did a beautiful job on this :)

Sheena said...

Very cute frame - I think it looks lovely as it is.
Julia has added an edit about the whole Tuesday/Wednesday thing, I think you're OK sticking to your Tuesday night routine!
I'm attempting to visit everyone on the WOYWW list this week. t'is a daunting task but at least I'm trying, more than I've done before!
