My first Pinterest craft!

     Like many female users of Pinterest, I have a board just for DIY's and craft ideas. All of these pins are projects that I would love to do someday, but it's hard to find time to craft with my school schedule (and after school activities like being in a sorority, etc).

     But a couple of months ago I decided that it was finally time to tackle one of these projects! The one that I chose to do was a Lilly Pulitzer print inspired picture frame, which involved painting an interpretation of the popular Chiquita Bonita print. Despite the fact that my mom is an artist, I did not get her painting genes, and painting has never been something that has come easily to me. But this tutorial looked easy enough, and I decided that if I took my time and wasn't afraid of mistakes then I would attempt it!

     It took me over two months (and packing all the supplies midway through the bring them home in my suitcase), but I finally finished my frame last night! I am very pleased with how it came out!!



     And here is the link to the pin with the tutorial: I found the tutorial to be very easy to follow, even for someone like me who is definitely not an artist!


     Now that I have officially completed a Pinterest craft I am just dying to get started on another! I think that my next big craft project though will be to make a scrapbook for my freshman year of college (last year). Scrapbooking was a passion of mine in high school, and I definitely still have enough supplies to get back into it!


     Have any of you completed any Pinterest crafts lately?
