feeling crafty.

It's late and I'm not feeling very creative, but I really want to start blogging ever day.  Even if it's boring. Lol.
I had a forty5 set this after noon(the forty5 is 45 hours of continuous prayer and worship that my church does one weekend a month.  I love just being in the presence of the Lord, singing and playing for His glory. I had a good time with Him:)
I've really been reflecting on His love for me.  What an amazing love it is!
After my set I went running around Springfield trying to find a backing for my Duvet cover that I'm making. I found this duvet cover at urban outfitters and fell IN LOVE
Due to the price and some bad reviews on the quality of this piece, I decided against it.  I just couldn't get this vision out of my mind and tried to brainstorm on how in the world I could accomplish this look.
I found this fantastic store called H&M fabrics. Oh my word.  I about passed out when I walked in there.  It was like I was in the stores they go to on HGTV or Project runway.  There are bins upon bins of bolts of fabric  and everything is under $8 a yard! I was in heaven!  I found this amazing fabric and although it's not quite as ruffly as the urban outfitters duvet, it still has the ruffly girly feel and is totally me. :) (and was definitely more affordable)
 Here is the finished product....
(I'll have to post better pictures later.) 
I have some of the fabric left over to make a couple pillow cases.  I can't wait to post pictures of my room once it's finally complete! :)  It's starting to come together and I'm pleasantly pleased with the outcome so far.  I'm going for a vintage look, we'll see if I can accomplish it.
Well, it's 3AM and my brand new bed spread is calling my name :)
