Rock Tit Craft


My new house is bare.


I'm no decorating genius, I save my genius for drawing dirty pictures and cleaning up kid poop.
My usual plan for decorating go like this:

1. Look at my empty house and feel like a failure of a Mormon mom.
2. Obsess over Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware catalogs.
3. Remember I am cheap.
4. Throw away said catalogs.
5. Switch obsession to cute DIY blogs.
6. Become excited about possibilities.
7. Drive to store.
8. Remember I suck at this.
9. Buy tons of candy.
10. Go home to bare house and eat all of previously bought candy.


Our house has 4 bedrooms on the main level, but I make the boys share a room. I could totally let them have their own rooms but then when I put their laundry away I would have to go to 2 different rooms, and that is not going to happen.

I needed to do something for the boy's room though.

I saw these awesome metal letters and bought them. I tried to hand them up but they were too small for the room and looked stupid.

I reached deep inside my Mormon girl self and came up with a crafty-pants idea.
I nailed fabric to painting canvas, and nailed the letters over that.

I went to hang them up and realized my kid's initials spell "RT", which is a universal acronym for "Rock Tit".







You know, when you get cold and your nips stick out everywhere? That's Rock Tit. Embarrassing.

I have to rearrange their entire room so the initials would not remind me of people's nips standing at attention.





It's still pretty bare, but better than nothing! (Which is also what I say to myself when I let my kids run around in their undies.)


amen.

  1. Too funny. I never would have made that association. But my boys are ready to spawn.

  2. More pictures of your house please! I need to live vicariously through someone since I will be stuck in an apartment for the next 10 years of my life. I can't wait to see how you incorporate the word "camel toe" into your master bedroom.

    1. Camel toe has already been incorporated in the Miss Riverton pageant.
      Is it "tacky" to use it twice???

Speak with your heart or your private parts, either one is fine with me.
