Getting Back into the Swing of Things

I am trying to get back into my blog and regular posts.  I have learned that if I want to have time to blog than my perfectionism is going to have to take a back seat. I try to always write the perfect post and have the perfectly edited pictures. I barely had enough time to do that before I had a baby and now I have even less time. I decided that I am just going to write my post and not re-read it over and over again. I blog to share my love for crafts and decor, I never claimed to be a journalist or photographer.  I can't remember the last project that I did and shared it with my bloggy friends and I am so proud that I am able to finally have a little project to post about.

You all know how much I love to decorate with silverware.  I found this idea on Pinterest for a fork easel.  These little guys were so easy to make and the possibilities for how they can be used are endless.  Here are some picture of some that I made. Basically, all you need are some good pliers and a towel to put over the metal when you bend the fork. 

You can dress up the fork with a ribbon and a charm.  I am going to give some of these easels away and put a picture of my little one in it. I love the one above my kitchen sink to put my rings on. I have found that the smaller forks are easier to bend. I also try to look for forks with a lot of character.  You can find old forks at just about any thrift store, I also found that The Dollar Tree has forks with a decorative handles. I personally like the old, vintage forks.
