Day 156: Snowflakes!

Dear Snowflakes,

Get up to the mountains where you belong!  When you show up  in Denver you just anger me, I can't play in you, you just make my commute to work that much more sucky. Although you make things very beautiful, Please stop. Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Sincerely, 

Slippin' and Slidin' Lindsey




Boots: Macy's $60, Tights: F21 $6, Shirt: F21 $20, Sweater: KMart $10, Necklace: Fossil (gift from mom)

Well, Snowflakes, Since I see you all the time I thought I would incorporate you into my outfit somehow, do you feel special? This is one of my new favorite outfits, put together by miss Jennifer Sulze during her stay here. Not too shabby love. Not too shabby. P.s.I dislike the way my skin tone looks in indoor pictures :(

Well, its hump day. That's all I have to say about that.

Day 155: With a Lil Help From Ikea

Sunday, Josh and I took a little adventure to a magical wonderland called IKEA. I was in absolute awe. I mean I've seen it in movies but nothing could have prepared me for the awesomeness that is IKEA. I think we spent about 2 hours or so there (luckily there was a tv playing football in one of the corners surrounded by about 20 happy gentlemen patiently awaiting their wives/girlfriends return where Josh had to spend a few minutes) But for the most part he thought it was pretty terrific too.

The reason for the trip: to acquire some cheap legs/sawhorse like things. I've been wanting to get a kitchen table for quite some time now, I've been searching Craigslist, Wally's, Target, thrift stores, but have not found anything of interest :(  I remember being in Anthropologie a month ago and they had a table made out of an old door (price tag $2,559....yeah its an old door people!) So in my usual fashion I said, "hey! I can make that!" I just happened to be searching the creepy murder basement of my house today and found....yep, an old door! BINGO! So I googled: "how to make a table from an old door" and I found:

And here is my take: 
The door was already painted this way! Bonus!



Ikea sawhorse lookin' thingies: $10 each (spent $20 total)
I guess if I wanted to get fancy (like the design sponge table) I would have to cover it in some sort of glass or polyurethane...but I think I'm gonna just leave it rustic...get some cute placemats...over all I am super pumped with how it turned out!

Happy Tuesday everyone...hope i keep this blogging thing going! I'm trying!

Day 154: Christmas Crafty

Its been snowing profusely here in Denver...and not much in the mountains which makes me a very sad snowboarder. However, being stuck in the house all weekend has given me much needed crafty-crafty time!
Each year for Christmas (because of my dwindling bank account and my general desire for arts and crafts time) I make my family something cute. This year: Lightbulb snowmen ornaments.
Here's where I got the inspiration: Lightbulb snowman ornament

And here is my take:







Pretty cute, huh? The only socks I could bear to part with were these polka dot ones (sadly they have a hole in the heel) Where are all those random socks when I need them?! I swear I couldn't find any lying around!

I also made this, um well, decoration of sorts...but it looks like a third grader did it...not my finest work.
And then I also made this star for my very own Christmas tree!
It says "I wish I may, I wish I might"
The good news is I had ALL of the materials for today's crafty-crafty session lying around the house. So money spent on all of these goodies=zilch, zero, nada.
