You Are My Lobster
Today’s the day. It’s a burrito filled with joy. It’s: the PINTEREST CHALLENGE!
I debated joining along or not, since I’m up to my eye balls in school and working full time. But I took a break to make my version of a piece of art I’ve been eyeballing like that piece of man-candy I see on the Today Show every morning. Matt Laur, I’m lookin at you. #OldLadyCrushes
But the link took me to some weird site where you have to log in to buy stuff… and I felt stuck. So I googled it, and found this, which told me it is not for sale anymore. Of course, I felt like I could make this myself. (I bet you didn’t see that coming… this being a DIY site and all)
I had these old curtains that were doing absolutely nothing. Just sitting quietly in my fabric stash gossiping about the mod podge, and how tacky its behavior is.
I thought it would make for a lovely canvas.
I traced the canvas frame so I knew what lines to stay in. #ThingsILearnedinKindergarten
I free-handed the print, just by looking at the screen. I have no real tutorial, other than just copying it. Original, I know.
Then I just filled it in with Sharpies. Do you see how messy my table is? It’s because this is my “desk.” It’s where I’ve been living. It is pretty much a visualization of my life right now. Just messy and junky and cluttered and unorganized and scattered and chaotic. I need help lol. I’ve lost my mind, as you can tell from my uncouth hashtags.
I trimmed up the edges, and stapled it to the canvas frame, it put it in a spare frame I had.
And that’s a wrap. My ten-minute-study-break-project is a notch in the bed post.
I think it looks exquisitely beautiful, but it could be a delusion from being buried in assignments.
I hung it in our bedroom, and I love it. And… do you see how ugly my 80′s fois bois door is? Good thing my reward for finishing school will be painting my doors. I don’t know what kind of person rewards themselves with chores, but either way, it’s motivating me to work harder. #NoCureForPeopleLikeMe
And for those of you wondering why in the world I would put this phrase on a piece of art… shame on you for not knowing. But here, educate yourself:
Aaron and I plan on being an old lobster couple walking around the tank holding claws.
Now back to the books. Thanks for your patience! xoxo
