Monday Made It!!!!

Whoop whoop!  It's time for my first Monday Made It in a loooooong time.  I love this linky because it gets my crafty butt in gear.  So excited Tara is making it weekly again because that means SUMMER!

And how cute is that new button?  I might be a little biased-wink wink.  And now, on to the good parts, the made its.
I really wanted a small ottoman to go with the couch in our formal living room.  We don't use it as a formal living room.  It's where my girls watch tv, play on the wii, do cartwheels, . . . .  But it is one of the first rooms you see in my house when you walk in, so I wanted it to look night.  I knew what I wanted.  I also knew I didn't want to pay for it.

Have you seen the prices for cute ottomans?  Not cute.

I bought this little naked guy from World Market and a curtain from Target.
I used this tutorial for covering a cushion and kind of made up the rest as I went along.  If you look closely, you'll can tell.  But you know what?  Nobody looks closely.
My door was looking a little naked after Easter, so it was time to spruce it up.  I found this wreath on Pinterest.  I couldn't find a white and navy striped fabric, so I alternated with yarn.  Just sit down and watch some HGTV while you wrap.  It takes about 30-40 minutes to do this.  I measured sections ahead of time because this girl is super type A, but I doubt anyone else would have noticed.  I made some fabric and felt flowers and bought the little white flowers.
And now for the digital made its.  I'm a better digital crafter than real life crafter.  It's easier to clean up, and there are no hot glue burns.  I have a magnet board over my computer, and  I like to put quotes on it to inspire me throughout the day.  I've had some big "coincidences" this year and am feeling God's hands all over the place.
