Beer Caps Canvas

Total cost of Project: Under $5.00 (not including beer caps)

If you have a wide variety of beer caps and are not sure what to do with them, why not make it into art? My Husband and I enjoy drinking beer, over the years we have become more or less "beer snobs" we enjoy drinking the crafty beers. After trying to figure out what to do with them, I thought I wonder how they would look on a small canvas. Since my husband loves beer I thought the beer caps art would be an awesome addition to his office.

Table Numbers (Pictures in Frames)

This idea was so much fun and a little difficult, trying to pick 11 pictures from 10 years of us being together. I printed all the photos in black and white and then I had my husband use his Photoshop skills on the computer. He added the numbers. We chose orange because that was one of our main colors for the wedding. Then I purchased 11 frames from a local craft store. We had some of our guests take home them as well.


The final product at our wedding:

I surprise myself everyday, I have been trying more and more recipes and I have become pretty domesticated! We use to eat dinner out several nights a week now we are down to eating out about 1-2 nights a week! I try to take pictures of all the meals and post recipes but honestly I have been cooking so much I don't have the time to keep up on all of them.

So after years of scrapbooking, I have finally come to terms that I officially hate it. Its SO time consuming and tedious and frankly its boring to me. Couple years ago I was introduced to Shutterfly and Snapfish and I swear by them now. I have used them to create digital photobooks for every occasion.

Here are some books I have designed over the years:8964659085_cd0c3f8eb2_o

Family Photo Collage



So I really wanted our living room to be unique. When I think of "Living Room" I think back to when I was younger that was the one room in our grandparents house that we were not allowed to play in because all the valuable antiques and nick knacks. The one thing I always loved about it was it had so much history. Every piece in the room had a story and I learned all the stories growing up. It was a happy place, we all would gather in the room for the holidays and other special occasions. My goal was to bring that same feeling into our house, so here they are!

This is currently our big project, we have never really worked with wood crafting. I wanted something other than wall canvas art for our family room, I found this picture online and looked EVERYWHERE to see where I could buy it. It turns out that the place that use to sell it does not sell it I was out of luck. I talked to my husband about it and he being the encouraging person that he always is said "Sure you can do it!"
