Carrie and I have been busy with new projects to share with you! Today I am excited to share this dry erase board I made in about an hour. Using a poster frame from Wal Mart ($10.00) and a can of pistachio spray paint ($3.00) I made this inexpensive alternative to a white board. My office is currently sporting tones of pistachio and powder blue, so I knew when I saw this can of spray paint on sale it would be a perfect fit. I love the fact that you can choose your own color scheme instead of plain old white!
today we have natalie in the house! i have been complaining that there are rarely any camera straps I love to look at. and the ones i DO love, are quite a lot of money (remember those beautiful woven ones from the 70′s, where did they all go?) so today, we are making a DIY camera strap that sort of blew my mind! natalie totally needs to make an etsy shop full of these, right? what you’ll need: • 2 yds cotton webbing (we used 1 1/2 inch natural cotton) • masking tape • acrylic craft paint • 2 swivel hooks (found in the jewelry or with purse handle section of most craft stores) • fabric glue • needle and thread • metallic leather or vinyl (optional)
By now you most certainly know that we love being on the road, taking pictures all the way from beginning to end. Our daughter is the chief chronicler and takes care of our travel journal. Not that we had one.
Hi, it's Randi from Swoon here with a sweet little gift idea for Mother's Day! If you're like me, the wish at the top of your Mom's list is always more photos of you and your family. When people ask to see pictures of my family, I've been known to whip out my phone, which serves as my digital photo album. Chances are your Mom doesn't appreciate the benefits of her phone as much as you do, so why not make her a good old fashioned brag book this Mother's Day?
If you remember that button elephant I created a while back, you might also remember that I promised a tutorial asap! Well, asap has finally come, so here we go! To make this cute little elephant, all you need are some buttons, hot glue, a wee bit of paint, a canvas board (which you can find at any craft store) and a frame. First, draw out a nice, chunky elephant.
