Projects of Procrastination - Silhouette Pillow

Okay!  Sooo, who here is guilty of chronic procrastination?  
Oooh! Oooh!  I am!  Me, right here!

I don’t think there has been a day in my life that I haven’t procrastinated on at least one task!  I consider this to be my biggest personality flaw!  It has caused me so much grief in my life: I lose sleep over last minute projects, have double the housework to do, and I am late for EVERYTHING because I procrastinate.  You would think I’d learn my lesson, but I still battle that weakness everyday.

Well back in October, Kellie at This Blessed Nest issued a craft challenge with her Silhouette Linky Party! I had two great ideas (only finished one), but a super busy scheduled coupled with some good old procrastination kept me from getting them done in time for the party.  But I still wanted to do them!

So last week, when we got home from vacation, I decided to finish my project!
I made a family silhouette throw pillow for our bed!
I just took this family picture and followed a tutorial from Loo-la-bee Simplicity to make it into a silhouette on Picnik.  

I also used picnik for the text.  I mirrored both the image and the text and printed it on some iron on transfer sheets from Hobby Lobby.

Then I ironed on my silhouette and 3 onto some pillows I made from unbleached broadcloth.  (I accidentally smudged the bottom of my silhouette with my iron so I might be redoing this pillow.)  Then I finished the pillow and viola..  

I love this scripture!  I think it went along perfectly with the family silhouette and “3” pillow.

And I think they looked kinda good on the bed (despite the smudge).

Thanks for letting me share!  

PS.  I know my walls are bare, but I will put something up as soon as I finish procrastinating ;-)
