Closet door makeovah!

 So, silly me, I lost the "before" pictures. Arg. So just imagine it with me here. Imagine a plain ol' closet door. It's white. And it has all kinds of drawings and photos pasted onto it, hap-hazard.
There. Now you got the "before".
And here's the after!

But wait! It's a little more interesting than first appears.

First of all, I painted it with metallic paint. And that is basically paint that has tiny bits of metal in it. Which means ...
you can stick magnets to it!!

I love magnetic poetry. :) That was the most poetic one I made. Most of them are more along these lines:

 "Oh, us are mad," her said. "Am he too?"

And then we have this pin board I made. I just took two pieces of cardboard, covered them with cloth and used duct tape to secure it. :) Shhhhh! Don't tell.

Close-ups of the pin board:

 A photo I took while riding on Knightly, my friends horse. And a pic of my beautiful Pepper. I miss you, babe.

I love this verse. "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young."
I'm young, and I know there are tons of things I don't know about. But that doesn't mean I have to just sit around waiting to get older! God can use me for something big. I just hope I'll have the courage to actually do it.

 This is an owl I made using my grandma's typewriter! It's kinda hard to see, but the wings are made out of v's, the other feathers are u's, eyes are o's, etc.

 This fortune has a funny story behind it. It's kinda one of those "ya had to be there" moments, but I'll tell you anyways. ;)
One of my friends and I were walking home from ice skating early this spring, and we were wondering if it would be too crazy to walk all the way to the Dairy Queen in the cold weather. Then we looked down and saw this! "Don't just think, act!" So we burst out laughing, and went to Dairy Queen. :D
That has kinda become my motto this summer. Last summer I had all kinds of plans, but never really did any of them. I'm trying to make this summer more exciting!

A cool leaf I found.

 A two dollar bill, two four leafed clovers, a five leafed clover, a pic of me and Pepper, and a bus ticket.

Dr. Seuss. :)
And "Don't forget to be awesome." Very important, that.

That's it for the pin board, but there's one more element I have to show you about the closet door. I call it, "Sharpie attacks door."
Nice, eh?

Have you been doing anything crazy this summer?
