Happy Monday everyone! Today I am going to show you how to make this necklace and introduce my first giveaway! Below are the steps to make this tulle necklace. And to win this necklace, just leave me a comment below! A winner will be announced on Friday.
When I was asked to be the Guest Pinhead for The Pinterest Challenge , I knew almost immediately which project I wanted to tackle! My "pin"speration is an artist's piece made from metal that has hand cut flowers all over it. Its backlit by Christmas lights, and I pretty much love it ! So I decided to give it a go and create my version. There are two main differences between the two: 1.
I’ve been asked by several people about how I made my menu board. I’ve spent many hours on Pinterest pinning away at all the things I someday want to try. Finally, I am putting my efforts to use!
Wedding Dress Label - My Something Blue This is technically not my DIY but my mom made it for me and I designed it so it made the cut for this page. We got a square from my wedding dress to use for the fabric and then my mom hand stitched the text. I am planning on having my seamstress sew it into the inside of my dress for my something blue. Honeymoon T-shirts!
Cuteness alert coming right at you, but how fun is this little DIY project, guys? I found the original inspiration on Pinterest (the ‘lamp shades’ were covered in Hallowe’en hued paper) but figured I’d give it a go using my fave hues. Wouldn’t this garland be absolutely fabulous for a bridal shower, an outdoor wedding and or even the most perfect addition to a nursery in lieu of a night light? Check out the awesome step by step photos below shot by the always wonderful Jenna .
Thankfully everyone seems to be making a switch from plastic to lasting when it comes to shopping bags, so here’s another fun little tutorial on customizing one to make it oh so cute. You might notice a lot of doilies in my recent diy projects. Since I was getting so many ready for A Christmas Gathering I used a lot of the same materials…monograms seems to be pretty popular now too.
Wow! I did not intend on being away for so long, but Stephen and I both came down with strep throat on Monday and we’ve been out for the count! Luckily I was able to make a decision and attack our dining room curtains since the last time I posted. THANK YOU to everyone who weighed in on our Dining Room Curtain Dilemma last week.

OK, So I have completed two DIY projects on my list so far... The first one is this organizer. Since I am getting rid of my teacher desk monstrosity, and moving to a table, I need a place to put all the stuff that was in my drawers. So... I could not get the pics to come out well. I made a template on Power Point using some scrapbook paper that I scanned.
Craft DIY Projects, Patterns, How-tos, Fashion, Recipes @ Craftzine.com - Felting, Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Home & MoreBy Ann Martin Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. The practice crossed the Atlantic with colonists, who added quilling to candle sconces and trays as home decorations. In all of that time, the process has remained very much the same, but quilling designs and specialty supplies have definitely caught up to the 21st century.

Mar 01 by Rachel Meeks Pink blossoms will soon appear on trees, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival starts on March 20. In 1912 the city of Tokyo, Japan, gave Washington, D.C., a beautiful gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees. This year celebrates the 100th anniversary of that gift.
Several months ago I discovered the surprising (to me!) fact that you can actually PRINT ON POST-IT NOTES using your own home printer. Recently I ran across a similar, but MUCH SIMPLER method for printing personalized messages on post-its, and I couldn’t wait to try (and share) the idea again . Kelly at Studio DIY used this method to print out a cute “Happy Anniversary” greeting . Unfortunately I found this the DAY AFTER my anniversary. :-)
