I can't believe it's October already! Dublin is gorgeous in the fall and the leaves changing colours brighten up my run to work! I seem to always end up feeling particularly crafty around this time of year. I don't know if it's because of the lovely transformation of the trees or if it's because the cold forces me to stay inside and play around on Pinterest (probably the latter) but I have a whole laundry list of easy crafts I'd like to take on. Easy being the key word there, as I have neither the time nor the patience for anything too difficult or complex!
All the excitement with the Rolling Stones pictures has me looking at my own walls with a bit of despair. They are absolutely and unforgivingly blank. I'm at a loss for what to do! I don't want to be at the mercy of plain, cheap photo frames (as I usually am) but I'm really not too craft-coordinated. What a conundrum!
So I think I'll start something here, for all of us none-too-crafty people! We'll start with a fall wish-list and then we'll work our way into some easy crafts. Dip a toe in the metaphorical craft pond!
Pinterest really is the best for DIY crafts and fun decorating ideas and I'm particularly fond of how they make pictures the center-piece of a room! I've had my eye on this little guy for a while and I wouldn't mind trying him out!

Taking cheap old frames and converting them to centerpieces of a room sounds pretty brilliant to me! I have several blank walls at home that I think could benefit from this little piece of home-making magic! I'm not sure I can find that many frames though, so I may pick and choose some shapes that I like and then add pictures to fill out the effect. They would look great above my little stove!
That's probably enough of a list for now at least, don't want to put too much on our plate! We'll get started on the supplies for this and keep you updated on where we got them and the price range.
Until we craft again!
