“All the time, a disturbance! I get no sleep! I got to get my rest!
My goal this holiday season was to really try my best to make some homemade gifts. So far I’m doing pretty well with my wreath, some burlap covered candles, some personalized coasters and this past weekend I gave a try at some jewelry. You may have noticed how wrap bracelets are everywhere lately. Chan Luu bracelets are extremely popular these days. They come in singles and also in wraps.

Lately I’ve been having this huge urge to decorate the house. This is big news. I do not decorate. Arguably, one of the reasons why is because I. absolutely. hate. to. buy. mass. produced. decor. (Also, I can’t ever remember if pink and purple go together or not.)
"A store-bought belt can obscure even the sloppiest of home-sewn waistbands." ~Ancient Chinese proverb As promised, here is the tutorial for the tulle skirt I sewed for Thanksgiving ! I share this with you along with one major caveat: At no point during the making of this skirt did I actually know what I was doing. This will be painfully obvious to those of you with real sewing skills, so please feel free to use this as the most basic of guides and to improve on it any way possible.

After running across Sweet Jessie’s Scalloped Garland tutorial a few months ago, I wanted to take the same technique and use it to make a shabby, fun, linen pillow. Here’s how I did it: Supplies Needed: fabric (I used linen) sewing machine zipper (if desired) Step 1: Create your “petals”.
In my last post I showed you my new DVD storage. I love, love, love it! The binders are so handy right next to the TV instead of in the dining room hutch, its almost like I thought it through, or something. :) The easier thing to do, would've been to buy four of the gorgeous binders that Target or Staples sells, but the patterns are really not me.
Finally. I did promise. I'll be honest here - these flowers are time consuming and if you want lots of them, you'll want to start several months ahead and work steadily.
Here's a Christmas wreath so darling and dear, even Miss Crawford would approve. Take one of these... and bend it into the form of a circle. Then, grab your glue gun and as many round ornaments in varying sizes as you can find.

This is a step-by-step guide for how we made the chandelier you see at Faire Frou Frou .
