Blue-Tinted & Netted Vase



Lately, I've really wanted to improve my living room's decor. It has been a slow progress, mainly because I loose focus and move on to a new craft/project that has nothing to do with the living room! But that room is always in the back of my mind.

A couple month's ago friends of Chris and I got married. At the end of the reception we sort of helped them clean up. While in the process, I snagged a large vase that they used to decorate and they didn't want to keep! Such good friends. : )

I knew I wanted the vase to go in our living room but didn't know what to do with it. I know I have pinned a lot of vase-type projects on Pinterest and looking at my Pinterest really inspired me to create a blue-tinted and netted vase! Here is what I did:

Sewing Mondays - Ruffled Table Runner

To help encourage myself to practice sewing as much as I can, I came up with "Sewing Mondays". This will be a chance for me to show you all the tutorials I have tried, my resulting product, and what I thought of the tutorial {I promise all comments will be nice!}. Maybe I will even become proficient enough to post my own tutorials! {Baby steps first, though.} To start out, I'll post a Sewing Mondays post every other week, but if I really get the sewing fever, maybe I'll post every week!



Happy Monday everyone! This week's Sewing Monday tutorial is the Ruffled Table Runner from Sew Much Ado.

Framed Earring Holder


Hey everyone, it's the weekend! I hope you are enjoying it.

Do you all recall my Framed Necklace Holder that I made last July? I planned on making a earring holder to go with it. Well I finally got around to making it, nearly a year later! It took me a few trials and errors to make it how I visioned, but I finally figured it out! Here is what I did...

15+ Flower-Themed Mother's Day Gifts




Mother's Day is this Sunday. Already! I know! My sister and I always get our mom flowers that she can plant in her flower beds. The tradition started when we were in elementary school. Our school would set up a little "store" where we could buy flowers for our moms for Mother's Day. Our mom has always loved getting the flowers, so the tradition has stayed. I hope my kids do the same for me someday!

Since our gift to our mom is always flowers, I thought it would be fun to do a flower themed Mother's Day gift round up. Check out these great tutorials that would be fun for a kid or an adult to make for their mom!

Paper Dahlias


Hey everyone, it's Friday!! I think I may finally start working on my flower beds this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it. This weekend will be the "prep". I get to pull out all of the ugly plants and get the beds ready for flowers. Lets hope the weather holds out!

Recently I've seen paper dahlias on pinterest and at different link parties. I think they are super pretty and really wanted to make some. Love, Pomegranate House had a great tutorial that I followed with a few minor changes.
