Speedy, Zippy, Fast, Art

At midnight last night, I got the wild idea to cut up some scrapbook paper, and use some stickers and make something. Trust me, there were several other more important things I could've been up to, including sleeping. But, even just looking at scrapbooking paper makes me happy, and yet I don't scrapbook.

Here's what I came up with:

I took this lil' clearance picture frame, cut scrapbook paper to fit, taped a ribbon on there, stuck on some more paper, and this adorable bird sticker, and voila! Cute little desk art!



Here's where the evening gets really hilarious. I may have a problem. . .

I decorated my digital picture frame

Yes.

I thought my digital picture frame was too boring and bland. Goodness Kara.

So I added a little "cherish" word and made a quick bow with some ribbon and tape. The bow will get redone (smaller). I secretly love that this lil' bit-0-technology just got a makeover.

Doesn't she look glamorous?


Does anyone else have an unhealthy obsession with buying scrapbook paper? Anyone who doesn't even own a scrapbook?!

I'm working on my new office project. Can you tell?
Yes, I bought these. Yes, I love them.

Come back and see me!

Ooooh, great ideas! I LOVE what you did with your digital frame. It's so simple, yet so adorable. Right up my alley!

Love the midnight desk art. (I have that same fleur de lis BTW.)

What a great idea to dress up the digital frame. That's actually the reason I don't have one...I didn't think they looked very good.
I may have to rethink that.

I like scrapbook paper, but I actually scrapbook, so it's justified..These little projects are too cute..

I think you and I were meant to be BFF (I tell Liz that, too). I am obsessed with Craig's List! I have two (yes two) armoires from craig's list, AND a kitchen island. I'm out of control.

Kara,
Sorry for just now posting. Still working on my Google Reader from when I was on vacation. I have an unhealthy obsession with scrapbook paper (I don't scrapbook). When I was a poor grad student I made tons of cards and gifts using the paper.

I love your framed art piece. I may have bust out my paper and get creative!

Thanks for the idea!

Hi Kara! I like what you did on that digital frame. I think it's very clever. Do you have some photos of your office space? I'm helping my girl with her new office room in Reston, VA this month so we're on search for some good items we can create that will be useful in the workplace. Like you, she loves scrapbooking, too. And she loves everything polka dots. Where did you get that quick bow?
