I am a paper addict. One of the ways I reward/bribe myself is with a trip to the scrapbook store, or a new slab of paper from the craft store. I find that these things help get my creative juices flowing, and I can turn to them when I’m looking for inspiration.
I am a huge fan of glitter. I mean, what’s not to like? It just seems to make everything feel a little more special. Glitter is also a great way to jazz up something that’s plain or has even seen better days. For this project, I took a plain ol’ piggy bank from the dollar store and decided to make it shine!
Scotch Expressions sent us samples to play with. This DIY washi tape switch plate tutorial was the result.
I have always been a fan of fancy switchplate and outlet covers. I spent many an hour decoupaging switchplates, and everyone knew what they were getting for holidays. Sometimes, if they were especially nice to me, I’d even take requests!
“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starburst. I received product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
Recently, I discovered two of my favorite things had come together, and created an even better item. What are these two items, you ask? Starburst and candy corn! Oh yes, Starburst Candy Corn is now a thing, and it’s pretty fantastic.
These tips for sewing with vintage patterns were inspired by a DIY Challenge I participated in with Jo-Ann Fabrics and Waverly. All opinions are my own.
Recently, I had the opportunity to take part in a creative challenge with Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts and Waverly Fabrics. This was all part of Waverly’s 90th anniversary and the Waverize It contest that Jo-Ann & Waverly are holding. They sent me a mystery package with a top-secret fabric inside. I had to create a sewn project that was a unique twist.
What was I going to get? What was the pattern going to be? Would it be like a quilter’s cotton or would it be a heavy upholstery fabric? Most importantly, what the heck would I make?!?!
This duct tape crafts project was inspired by Scotch duct tape.
I have a weakness for office supplies. I can’t even hide it. If it’s kind of cute, or brightly colored, I’m looking at it and probably pondering a purchase. The biggest problem is that they tend to be on the pricier side. You can dress up your plain ol’ office supplies quickly and easily. This is a perfect back to school project, and duct tape crafts have become so popular recently.
How to Ombre Dye a Shirt was sponsored by Joann as part of the Summer of Joann series.
Recently, Joann Fabric and Crafts contacted me to see if I was interested in taking part in their Summer of Joann Crafting with Kids series. Ummm…let me think about this. I spend half a day a week wandering around the store, picking up odds and ends for my projects. Absolutely I want to participate!
The challenge was to choose a project from the Cape Discovery series and recreate it. Hmmm…what to choose, what to choose…
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and you know what that means? It’s time to get mom a gift. If you haven’t done so, don’t fret! Mom wants handmade gifts!
