I felt a bit of blogging inspiration after reading another blog that is going through the ABC's. Cute, right? Start with A and work my way right on through...no time frame and I can think of whatever topic I want for each letter. I might be able to handle that. Maybe. At first, I got all hung up an the letter A. I can't take the pressure! Not a great start. But then I landed on "art".
What kind of art do you have hanging in your home? What's your style? Abstract? Modern? Photography? Kid art? In my mind, I love all hand made art pieces created by Pinterest ideas. In reality, though, I lean waaaaaayyyy towards traditionally framed art or things that I think are significant (maybe only to me, but still)
Since painting the dining room, I've had a heck of a time filling the empty wall space. Since my budget is somewhere between $0 - $10, I felt stuck. I've pinned a few ideas, but then chicken out when it comes to actually making something for fear that it would turn out badly. But, I pinned one idea that I thought would be perfect if the kids made it! Genius! That way, I'll get what I want and if it's not perfect, who's gonna say?? It's way more abstract than I would ever, ever pick...like Jackson Pollock kinda abstract. But, I love it, too!
Here's some pics of my more traditional pieces...
