Hey everyone, welcome to my nifty blog! I've never blogged before (unless my angsty high school livejournal posts from 10 years ago count.....) so you'll have to bear with me as I get used to everything.

I'm Shaina and I have a problem. I am seriously addicted to pinterest, do-it-yourself projects, and anything crafty. I've always loved being creative and making things, but recently I find myself doing projects at least every other week.

This is probably because so many important people in my life are doing huge, life changing celebratory things all at the same time! My sister got engaged about a year ago and, as her maid of honor, I was responsible for her bridal shower which looked pretty amazing if I do say so myself (thankyouverymuch). Now as her wedding fast approaches I'm helping her do a lot of things like the programs, favors, and OF COURSE the bachelorette party! My cousin (who's really like a sister and best friend) just got engaged and my good friend and college roommate just asked me to be a bridesmaid in her destination wedding in Guatemala next November!

Always a bridesmaid and never a bride you say? I appreciate the concern but I've snagged a pretty great guy myself. (I'll call him Grizley Adams because he is currently growing out a beard....which I am not a fan of but hey, I pick my battles). Grizley has hinted that there may be something nice and sparkly in my future so he may make an honest woman out of me yet. We have a furry baby, his name is Percy and hes an adorable, obnoxious Pomeranian.
His full name is Percy Eugene Drew-McClaugherty....we thought a small dog needed the largest, nerdiest name possible.

Here are some pictures of some of my favorite projects I've finished... unfortunately I don't have any step by step pictures or directions to accompany them, but that's why I'm starting this blog! So many people ask "how did you do that?" and so this is for all of you! Enjoy!
