A&C

As I've said in the past, I'm very crafty. I like doing arts and crafts and things like that! Also, I haven't really been able to do many crafts at school since I'm not painting paddles, gifts, etc. AND on top of that, my dorm really doesn't have room where I can sprawl out on the floor the way I like to. I've been painting some letters to hang in my room for about a week so that they can dry. I got 3 big white letters from Michael's in my initials: C, A, and R. When I do things with my initials, I like to use the C since its my real name, despite the fact I sometimes forget people are talking to me if they say Catherine. Getting back to my crafts, check out what I made!!!


Using these colors I made:


(They're drying on the paper plates. My mom's #1 rule was not to get anything on the rug. We had a home-made flubber incident back when I was 13 and decided to re-do my room. As we were shifting the beds, we found some dried "flubber" we made in 5th grade that is primarily made from glue...rock hard on the carpet. It's still there today...)


This one was my favorite. I liked the spacing of all the dots (a little OCD anyone?) and that the backdrop is pink!


Here's the A. A few of the spots are still wet in the photo so some of the colors look uneven. If any dry uneven I'm sure I'll go back over them as needed!


I really like the R also. The green wasn't exactly the green I had imagined from the packaging, but it grew on me.

I'll be sure to post photos of where I put them up in my dorm. I have this white expanse of wall that currently has nothing on it above my bed, so that's where these beauties will go. On 3M wall hooks of course--no nailing in dorm walls anymore!!

I hope you guys enjoyed this preppy (and inexpensive) craft! Which letter is your fave?!

I'm loving the C! Mostly because my name is clara, but the pink background it so adorable! I have a monogram on my wall that I painted probably 5 years ago and it looks like a 13 year old painted it (probably because I was)! I need to do a new set ASAP!

Ah! So funny - I'm doing the exact same thing, but I can't pick colors so I haven't done it yet. The guys at Lowes think I'm crazy 'cause I've returned 3 bottles of spray paint already.
I love your R!

I love them! I am currently working on my son's name for his room. I will have to remember to take pics!

I love the letters, pink and green were my sorority colors so I always have a place in my heart for them. I am very envious of these becasue I do not have the skills or the patience to do crafts.

I did those for my door and desk at school and love them. Some people do not believe that I made them.

I love the letters! Roomie and I made letters for the outside of our door freshman year. Now all three of us have letters on our bedroom doors at the apt!
