Thrifty Crafter

Look what I did with Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, coordinating cardstock, and a photo frame! I painted my laundry room "So Saffron", recently, and wanted to use the "Haiku" palette in the accessories. I found this frame at Gordman's today for $16 and I just cut my DSP to 3" X 5" and matted it on coordinating cardstock cut to 4" X 6". It looks GREAT against my "So Saffron" wall. Hope you like it, too!!

This photo has absolutely nothing to do with stamping and everything to do with being thrifty, which was one of my New Year's resolutions. Click on the photo to view a larger image. The bird prints on the wall and the crystal lamp on the nightstand were freebies. A friend of mine just bought a new house and got rid of some things, so I latched onto them since they fit in with my shabby chic bedroom decor. The nightstand was a Craigslist purchase and it's actually an antique sewing cabinet. The top is a lid and I have my sewing notions stored there. It also has two drawers, which is where my thread is stored. It matches the antique furniture that another friend of mine loaned to me. The furniture is an antique Waterfall set and Linda had it in storage. She was afraid that the humidity would ruin it in storage and said I'd be doing her a favor by using it. I absolutely LOVE this furniture and I've told her how much I appreciate it, but I hope she realizes just how much!! SHE'S the one doing ME a favor!!

Hope you're enjoying your week! It's been rainy and dreary here and the forecast isn't looking much better for the next seven days. Toodles!!
