Welcome to Crafty Fridays!
Art is life, without art I am nothing. I need to use my creativity to express myself on a daily basis, or I feel stunted and lost.
The older I got the harder it became to create on a regular basis, especially when I had a significant other. All of my art aspirations flew out of the window when there was a man in my life. Most didn’t understand or support my art, some even made fun of it, saying I would never make money with it. I now find myself living alone and creating more than ever. My apartment is full of my art and crafts projects which inspire me as soon as I walk through the door. I’ve received a lot of love and support from friends, family, and even strangers, so I’ve decided to start selling my art online, at craft fairs, and hopefully in a few stores around the Bay Area.
I’m launching a new website next week featuring my lamps and a few other things; I’ll share it here once I’m up and running.
DIY Poka Heart Wallpaper
My bathroom needed a pop; it needed something, something to jazz it up a bit, add some color and some attitude. I have a tattoo of a heart on my hand, and I’m a little obsessed with hearts. Eureka! I’ll draw/paint/place gold hearts all over the wall in my bathroom.
The idea was genius but how I was going to execute. Drawing or painting would be a disaster and would guarantee I wouldn’t get my security deposit back. I have a heart paper cutter and decided to use gold contact paper since it is removable. Cutting out tons of little hearts and place them in a pattern on my bathroom wall.
And that’s it, guys; that’s how my weird little mind works. I went to Amazon and purchased two rolls of this gold contact paper; I only needed one roll, but something tells me I’ll be using the contact paper for something else shortly.
The hardest part about this DIY was making sure the hearts were straight, and that wasn’t hard at all because most of them are not straight lol
