Well, over the summer my mom redecorated my room back at home while I was gone and permanently placed a good number of my photos and decor on my walls.  This is great, and the room looks wonderful, but a lot of the things were supposed to be coming back to school with me for my dorm room.  Therefore, I found myself, the week before I came back to college, painting up a storm to try to make fun little eye catching canvases to spruce up my walls that would no longer be covered from top to bottom.  Here are a few of my creations...

This is actually the type of thing I tend to doodle all over my notes in class, so I figured, why not try to make a real pretty one.

I actually messed up really bad on this one and ended up just painting the canvas black.  Then I realized that limited what I could do, and I came up with these little people.

This is a Shel Sliverstein poem about cardboard boxes that I thought was really cute.  My best friend and I have a running joke because we both picked majors we love that will probably make us very little money, so we committed to living as neighbors in our cardboard boxes in my parents' backyard.  Smiley

I really have been trying to learn sign language but my time is so stretched and there are so many other things I want to do too, but I really think its a beautiful language... hence this piece.

Thoughts are welcomed!

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.
 ~ Phyllis George

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

All of them are so cute, and well done. I like the Shel Silverstein, and the stick figures best though. Even though you say the stick figures were done out of a goof. Smiley
