$1 Spot Crafting: Flowered Letter

$1 Spot Crafting: Flowered Letter

While Beyonce's been drinkin', I've be thinkin' about what I could use these Target $1 Spot flowers for. 


Have you seen these cuties? I could not resist them and threw at least 5 packs into the cart without an ounce of hesitation. I may need a $1 Spot intervention soon. 


Yesterday, opportunity came knocking in the form of an ugly V that used to hang in Vaughn's room. It had been demoted to the top of her closet so I got it down, dusted it off, and knew it would be perfect for these little flowers.


To kick things off I gave it a really quick spray paint job. I wasn't going for full coverage, I just didn't want the painted lines to peek through where the new flowers overlap. 


Surprise! The flowers have stickers on the back which made this quick little project even quicker. 


I played with many layouts but in the end liked the monotony of the purple flowers. This project used 2 packs, minus 2 flowers, of the purple flowers which added up to a whopping $2.  


A perfect addition to Vaughn's wall of chaos.

Alex loves doing vision boards, and I love doing them with her -- and it takes some time to do, so we always feel like we've spent some quality time together as a result).   Read more >

Own Your Beauty, Month 1: Discover Authenticity With Brené Brown

Almost exactly two years ago, I woke up early and lay groggily on my back, trying to will myself to get out of bed and start getting dressed for my executive position as the assistant general counsel of a relatively large software company. As I lay there, staring at the ceiling, feeling somehow pinned to my bed by my bedclothes, I said out loud, almost without thinking: "Enough."   Read more >
