Every little girl needs a tutu, I think it is a requirement for a princess, and I knew E needed one for her birthday party to go with her crown. This No-Sew (okay, there is the teeniest, tiniest, little bit of hand sewing) to so quick and easy to make, you will want to make your little girl, or yourself, one for every occasion.
My daughter’s first birthday is quickly approaching, I can’t believe how quickly time flies. While Pinteresting one day for ideas for her party, I saw these crowns and just knew she HAD to have one, plus it gave me a chance to use those iron-on glitter sheets I have been eyeing for awhile.
Father’s day is just around the corner. This year instead of going with the universally accepted and oh so very common Father’s Day gift, a tie, I decided I would make my dad something to organize all those ties he has received in the past.
A few weeks ago, my mom called me with a wedding present idea for a wine loving cousin that is getting married this fall…a Wine Cork Bath Mat. She asked for help making it, and as any good daughter would do, I took over and decided to make it for her. This bath mat is a little time consuming, I mean you do have to drink a lot of wine to get the corks, but so much fun.
PS. You can buy used wine corks online so you don’t really have to drink all that wine, or just use new cork stoppers.
PPS. If you know said cousin getting married, please don’t tell.
This year for Christmas I received a very beautiful bracelet from my best friend. Upon closer inspection the pretty turquoise beads weren’t actually stone beads but paper beads instead. I remember making paper beads with old magazines and junk mail when I was younger, and loved it, so I set out to make them with a grown up twist.
Now that Thanksgiving has come and past, it is time to Christmasify the house. The hubs and I have been busy decking the halls, we have the lights up outside, the tree up inside, and the stockings are hung by the fire. Sadly our table was feeling left out. This cute Christmas Pom Pom Tree will make the perfect centerpiece.
My husband tells me I tend to shut doors loudly, or at least that is what he claims when I get up before him. I don’t believe I shut them any louder than he does, but just in case, I wanted to make sure that our baby won’t wake up as soon as someone shuts the nursery door, or really any door upstairs. These cute DIY Door Latch Covers are thin enough that the door still shuts, but the stop the door latch from clicking. These sleep savers are quick and easy to put together.
