Bleach Pen Stenciling

Just stumbled upon this while in blog world.  What a cool idea. I am thinking this technique can totally be done on t-shirts for a fun summer/beachy look.  Head on over to Crafts & Sutch for a tutorial on this "no sew bleached sand dollar pillow"

Mod Podge Class

This invitation turned out wider than I expected, so it totally spilled over into the rest of the window... I had to make the image smaller to fit on the page.  Click on the picture and it should give you a larger version, so you can actually read what it says.  I will have to remember to make it tall and thin instead of short and pudgy next time.  Hope to see many of you at this class.  It should be loads of fun.

Placemat Pillow


Ok...  this is genius!  I just saw this tutorial on how to make a pillow using a fabric placemat.  WHAT???  I just can't get over how easy this looks.  I will definitely be buying a nice placemat at Target today.  They have so many cute ones and they are always seasonal and trendy.  I am SOOOO excited!

Big Top Party Decor

I found this video titled Big Top Party Decor by Simply Kelly B. so inspiring, especially as I am in the process of putting together my own son's birthday party... which is this weekend.  Yikes!  I have so much work to do...  but it's FUN work. 

Here are some still shots of Kelly B's circus theme ideas.  There are some great tutorials on her blog as well, so be sure to check it out (Simply Kelly B.)

DIY big impact wall art

I have been looking for ideas for some easy and quick art project to hang in my Living Room.  Here are a couple that I will definitely try.  Anyone want to try them with me?

This first one is a Paint Chip Masaic Art piece, by Hope Studios. They have a great tutorial on their site for this project.  I love the look... and the price.  Looks like it is VERY easy to make as well... might not even need hubby's help with this one :)

The next one, is a Pottery Barn inspired piece.  I have been wanting a similar wall hanging from Pottery Barn for a while now...  I don't think they carry it any longer, but the price tag was $600, I believe.  I was SO excited when I found this tutorial by The Polka Dot Umbrella.  I will most definitely try to recreate this.  However, I will absolutely have to recruit my wonderful husband to help me with the construction.  Talk about big impact, though...  This piece measures 47"x47".
