Yesterday, the Circus had her very first day of Kindergarten. I’m still not quite sure how this is possible, but I know she’s ready for it! She totally rocked her first day. I’m so excited for her to start on this new adventure and of course, also just a little scared and a little sad too…
If you have been around here for long enough, you may have heard me chat about PicMonkey* – the way I edit pictures online for free.
But that’s not all Picmonkey does. Nope, you can also create images from scratch on there, make collages, and so much more. All the images you see around here with writing on them, all the collages, all that kind of stuff – I made with PicMonkey.

I tried to come up with some eloquent title for this project, but really all that just fit it perfectly was what you see above. So I went with it because that’s what it is – a huge a** frame that was way cheaper to make than buying one. When I did our master bedroom…
In case you didn’t know, I’m not an art connoisseur.
Now a cheap beer connoisseur, I am.

As you know, I am a huge fan of making my own DIY wall decor. I made my own prints with PicMonkey for my master bedroom, used the sassy printables on the sequined coat hangers, and made my own silhouette art.
This DIY modern art was by far one of the easiest home decor items I have ever created and I think it looks fab.
And did I mention I made it with a gift bag?
Remember last week, when I showed you my DIY tassel garland? You, do? Good. And remember in that same post, I said that if all went according to plan, I would show you how I did my silhouettes? You, do? Good. Well, you are about to see how to make a silhouette. But, over the…

If you remember, I bought some vintage nursery rhyme books and made this cute tissue box cover for the nursery…. I also chose 6 of the nursery rhymes to frame. I bought simple white frames at Micheal’s and used scrapbook paper as the background. Simple, cute, and vintage. How can you go wrong with that…
