Blog Swap: Along for the Ride!

Today I am blog swappin' with Laura from Along for the Ride!
She has such a cute blog so go visit her and show her some love!



Hi Every Crafty Endeavor readers! I'm so glad to be joining you today. I'm Laura from along for the ride.




When I'm not spending time with my husband Kyle, playing with my sweet kitty Jupiter, or hanging out with my students, I love, love, love crafting!

My favorite is making jewelry, but I like to try new things all the time. Here are some of my favorite projects...





Recently, I thought I'd give burlap a try and make some new summer wall art to spruce up my living room. Other bloggers make it look so easy...oh my it was a mess for me!

My hubby brought me home a few burlap sacks from work. I thought I would combine them with a few [random] items i found at the dollar store.



2 strange parrot pictures

2 onesies

I covered each picture with two layers of canvas to fully cover the parrots. It was a pretty painful process. I didn't think about how the hot glue would seep through the holes in the burlap, but boy it did.



[my poor hands!]



I made a few easy flowers and rosettes from the onesies (using the seams for the rosettes) and hot glued them to the burlap. I used the snaps for the center of the large flowers.

A little messy, but totally worth it!!




I host a party every Saturday called "Saturday is Crafty Day." I'd love it if you linked up!


I hope you'll stop by my blog and say hi! It would make my day!
