Knockoff: DIY Herringbone Art

I stumbled upon a fabulous blog the other day that you all should DEFINITELY check out. Sarah at While They Snooze is incredibly talented and just recently competed in Creating with the Stars over at East Coast Creative. I was perusing her blog and saw the most magnificent artwork that I wanted so badly for our house. SO BADLY!!!

Here’s one of those times when beautiful things should be admired and not replicated. They never turn out how you want them to. Following her lovely tutorial for her DIY Metallic Herringbone Art, I created my less-than-adequate version of her masterpiece.

Instead of telling you what I did, you can scroll through the photos below of the steps I took. But what you should really do is go and check out Sarah’s art. Because it is amazing. And yeah, you have to click over. I don’t like borrowing photos. Trust me, it’s worth your time.

Now that you see my finished piece… what do you think? I wish I had had gold spray paint on hand. I just might try this one more time, even though it took a while. I just love her finished piece and have TOTAL art envy.

The Adventures of Remmy the Dog: Moon Walk

Ha! I bet you thought Remmy’s adventures were done-zo, but noooooo! Rem recently returned from a moon walk! Or at least I imagined he did 🙂

Check this one out, with constellations at all. I should say, before my astronomy-loving husband see this picture, that obviously this isn’t too accurate. Just deal with it because it’s adorable!

Philly: The City of Sisterly Love

The hubby and I spent the day in Philly with my sister Emily. We started our day eating real cheese steaks. Um, delicious.

Then we went to the Art Museum of Philadelphia, which is one of the coolest museums I’ve ever been to.

Afterward, we went to Love park where we saw a flash mob proposal! So cute.
