Stress Relief

In between wedding planning and moving for work, my stress relief has been crafts and pinterest (actually this might make me more stressful at times….).

One of my friends has influenced me to take an interest in painting. So..I made a trip to Joanns..used all my coupons and got some basic painting supplies: easel, canvases, paints, brushes, and pallets for about $30. woohoo.

Final Results:


I’m thinking about painting a gray accent wall in one of our rooms after we move in. Thinking about a contrast color of yellow or red for decorations..maybe..both depending on the time of the year..

 Nerdy but artsy. Totally me, I suppose.
