Artsy, With A Bit of Fartsy

Some randomness from around the house...

I saw all this neon yarn and had to have it... I was sitting on the floor in the living room playing with them and trying to be crafty. The hubs found me there and I'm pretty sure he's reevaluating his decision to make me his life partner now. Can't say that I blame the guy.

I made this. It's... Yup. I've no words. I blame Pinterest. It looks like a 5-year-old made it. No offence to 5-year-olds out there. I trimmed it at an angle and my bin looks like I gave a muppet a haircut.

I kind of want to buy a tapestry loom now and make some proper wall art that doesn't make me feel like it needs qualification for why it's even being displayed. Really wishing I was visiting home right now so I could attend this class. That's stupid... I'm sure there's classes near me. But come on! It's in Singapore! I wonder if my sister would go in my stead... She'd probably tell me to stick the entire loom in my... Oops, this took a wrong turn...

Framed art still leaned up against the wall in the living room. It's going on the walls of our bedroom and dining room but I haven't had the chance to do it quite yet.

Some of the frames we put up along the stairs. This was earlier in the week...

This is today. I can't leave things alone.... Clearly. I just thought it started way too high so I lowered the beginning frame. It looks a bit wonky right now but I've got something else going to the right of the picture of The Beast, above the Lisa Congdon print. Waiting on the handmade frame to arrive! :)

By the way, the hubs still hasn't a clue that I added another frame lol 

And the view when you're coming down the stairs.

If anyone's wondering, most of our prints are from Etsy and Society6. The latter is a bit of a mixed bag sometimes. The quality of the prints are good, but the condition in which your prints arrive is anyone's guess. The last parcel had one print with all its edges completely rippled even though it was in a tube. The parcel before that was slightly bent. And the one before that had a print missing. They replaced it, but it's just slightly irritating to have to wait almost two weeks for your prints only to have them arrive in questionable condition or not at all. I've got one more order coming and after that I think that might be it for a while or for good. We'll see.

Oh, and this has nothing to do with anything but my lovely long-armer friend Laura gave me some yummies from her garden the other day when she came to visit! Thanks Laura! :)

Love your prints + the stairs, they all look fab. For the crafty-woollyness - do you follow Maryanne Moodie on IG (I think she's literally @maryannemoodie) - she's an amazing weaver, an Australian girl living in NYC. I found her through a friend who did one of her classes in Melbourne (before she moved to the US). Cat
