Aubrey's Room: The Never Ending Craft Session....

So I'm really getting my craft on for Aubrey's room. I'm trying to use stuff I already have around my sewing room so we can save on $$ :) Yay me, right?!
Some hoop art was next on deck. I'm going with a color scheme of, well, color in her room. Like I said before, I don't want to be tied down by a "scheme", I'm rebellious like that.
The two brighter patterned hoops I just left as is, but I flexed my glue gunning muscles on the purple one. Didn't want it to be bland, nope can't have that.
Nothing some buttons and lace can't fix!
I'm loving how they turned out! Best part was Aubrey come up while I was making them and when I told her they were for her room she said, "Wow Mama! I LOVE them....what are they?!?". Ah 3 year olds, no artistic vision.
Thought I'd throw in this next shot.....
Random I know, but I have this mask that my brother got me when he travelled to Venice and to say Zach hates it, is an understatement! For some reason it FREAKS him out and of course I wear it and sneak up on him and prop it in random places for him to find at some random time. I'm a good wife and that's what good wives do; piss off their husbands. Anyway, after one particular time of me hiding it somewhere on his desk, he got me back! Oh man, it made me smile for the rest of the day. I'm convinced that this is why our marriage is going to make it ;)
