A Happy Keyboard for Happy People

Earlier today, I dropped a box of crayons on my keyboard, and I tweeted my cry of frustration. Then I was asked if it looked anything like minifanfan’s. No, but I wish!

p.s. How cute are these stickers?

Beaded Garland Wall Art DIY

Here’s an easy way to fill up a large wall. A few people asked about the beaded wall art from a photo of my old apartment in yesterday’s post, so I thought I’d share the instructions with you. It’s an easy craft project!

You’ll need many strands of beaded garland (I used 18), an inexpensive café rod, and a little bit of paint and a paintbrush.

Take the café curtain rod and paint it so that it blends in with your wall color. You can prime it first if you’re worried about the paint sticking, but this is not a heavy duty piece so it should be fine without primer. String the garland on the curtain rod, attach the brackets to the wall, and hang your creation. Easy!
