Okay, I haven't posted here in well over a year but found pictures of some outcomes of a crafty afternoon.... crafternoon!! on the front porch with my roommate

sorry the picture's aren't too detailed


the red mirror I found at the hardware store in clearance then, on a whim, bought glitter glue and made it much more "6 year old stuck in a 20 year old's body"
the picture frame I got with the glue at the dollar store and made it pink then found neon pink paint in the free box and put it overtop though it's hard to see
the dinosaurs I have a ton of and attached them with super glue


this bad boy is quite a bit darker and came from Value Village in a hideous shade of blue and gold so I made it a less hideous shade (I'm the only person I know who doesn't like the colour blue)
the jewels I've been collecting for a while and adhered with super glue as well then for some hair brained-glue fumed reason I decided to haggardly outline them but luckily it's not toooo visible
it is the cheesiest thing ever but I've wanted to do it for years now but just never got around to it (reference to Haligh, Haligh, A Lie, Haligh by Bright Eyes) and it makes me smile and feel young again whenever I see it Grin

I didn't even see the title, I just saw the photo and thought of that song right away.  Nicely done.
