SONY DSC

Howdy! I'm so excited to be visiting and sharing some Spring crafts with you today. Last week I was up to my eyeballs in hot glue, eggs, and paint.

There's nothing like a "free" craft, right? :) Materials: One yard of fabric Sewing machine or iron on fusible webbing How to: First measure your pillow insert and add two inches to the height and width. This will be your first piece. Cut a second piece using your first piece for a template but add 4-6 inches to the length. Cut that piece roughly in … [Read more...]

I'm excited today to have Randi from Sowdering About in Seattle visiting today to share with you these pretty handmade spring magnets!

While digging around in my supplies the other day, I decided I wanted to make some fun magnets to brighten up our fridge and Lucy's magnet board.  So I went over to my washi tape board and picked out a bunch of fun bright colors, which included some fun patterns from Artsyville.  Then I taped them onto plain … [Read more...]

Tips on Achieving an Urban Classic Look for Less

2011-12-11 I Heart Naptime2

I wish I could say my house has a cohesive "look" or style to it, but it really doesn't {bad blogger!!}. Many people think that all bloggers have these perfectly coordinated homes, bright and colorful, always clean...and with all handmade items in each room. But I'm here to tell you folks, my house isn't perfect {or anywhere near}, it's not coordinated, it's not clean, and it's not handmade. There's so much I want to do to my home to update it, but I just can't find the time or money with two kids and a busy work and personal life. HOWEVER, if I did have a style...it would definitely be an Urban Classic look. Here are some options I would … [Read more...]
