Another Check Mark Please!

So DIY is really in vogue right now.  I think my generation is creative and resourceful and proud of who they are. I haven't jumped on the DIY wagon (or the coupon wagon or the hair bow wagon or the bead wagon).  It's a pretty fancy and full wagon.  There's not a lot of room for under qualified beginners.  I've secretly tried my hand at a couple of my own little projects and they have turned to disasters.  So I am a BIY person.  Buy It Yourself.  My sister, Julia, on the other hand.  Whoa.  She's got it down.  She can do like 8 projects a week for close to no cash and have a house that looks like a amazing. Sigh. Jealous. It looks like she's a BIY but she's a DIY.  Sigh.  Again.  Jealous.  Again.

Now,  I'm no pro.  I'm just getting started.  But I did my own little project over the weekend.

It's a FUZZY VELVET POSTER!  I love these.  You can never go out of the lines.

These yellow and green fish were my favorite.  I really took some time and tested some palettes before I colored them.  I think the time and thought put into them is evident.
I think this can go on my check list for 26 Before 27.  A DIY project.  Voila!  Done.

Hahahaha! Patty! You are so funny. Thanks for the shoutout, it's true...I love me some DIY. I also love fuzzy posters and you have been a master at them in my book for years. You go girl. Definitely a check mark.

Hahaha! You're funny. Coloring really is so satisfying in so many ways. My crazy sister has a therapist who told her to color in coloring books when she starts to feel a little crazy. He said that it hearkened back to one's carefree childhood years and brings one peace. So. Not only did you DIY, but maybe you got in some peace, as well.
