Just browsing Etsy and couldn’t resist these sweet treats! Click on the photos to see the listings.
Have a sweet weekend!
I received a couple blog awards from fellow bloggers in the past few weeks and I’m just now getting around to recognizing them!
Monica from Monica Wants It! tagged me with the Beautiful Blogger Award. Monica was probably one of my first “bloggy” friends and I really enjoy her dry humor and damask obsession. She’s currently going through somewhat of a quarter-life crisis right now, so go on over and give her some love! You can find her on Twitter, Etsy, Facebook and her blog.
Here are the rules for the Beautiful Blogger Award:
~Thank the person who gave you the award. ( THANKS MONICA!)
~Paste the award on your blog.
~Link back to the person who gave you the award.
~Share seven interesting things about yourself.
~Nominate up to 7 more beautiful bloggers.
~Link the bloggers you nominate.
Denise from Extreme Personal Measures tagged me with the Sunshine Award. I’ve recently discovered Denise’s blog, I have to admit I was instantly attracted to it because she has fleur de lis in her header! She’s a lady after my own heart with all her creative crafty and thrifty features.
The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity & creativity inspires others in the blog world.
The rules for accepting these award:
~Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
~Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
~Link the nominees within your post.
~Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
~Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
Well, I’m not much for following the rules with these sort of things; if you want to know some interesting things about me, click HERE. And as far as nominating other bloggers, it’s impossible for me to pick from my huge list of favorites! Have you seen that list over there?!? It’s huge! Go visit some, you’ll see what I spend way too much time every day reading blogs!
Well, thank you ladies for the recognition, and thanks everyone else for letting me toot my own horn!
I really love the way the white stands out very crisp and sharp, and the purple really sets off the accessories in the bookcase. Painting the back wall/panel of a bookcase a different bold color is a great way to get an accent wall look without having to commit to painting a whole wall.
I also replaced the brass hardware with black satin knobs.
Another look at the change: For more before and after shots of our living room, click HERE.
Last week I posted a little tease of something I’m working on.
I am happy to say that after a couple trips to the sewing machine hospital, my embroidery machine is finally up and running smoothly! So I transformed a plain onesie into one fit for a princess!
I used the same method as on my favorite Ruffle Butt Onesie, except I used tulle instead of regular cotton fabric.
It’s like a built-in tu-tu!
Totally cute, right? I need to get my friend’s baby to model it, I’m sure it’s so much cuter on a fat little baby butt!!
I’ve got some more girly designs in mind, maybe ballerina shoes, cupcakes, 1st birthday….
I’ll be sharing with the following parties:
So we all know about my slight
addiction affinity for all things fleur de lis. It seems I may have developed another collection of sorts. Apparently I’ve been hoarding ribbon:I bought one of these handy-dandy ribbon organizer spool thingys but quickly out-grew it:
So I added a couple more plastic containers:
I even recycled canisters for ribbon storage; still running out of room:
I knew there had to be a better, more space saving way to store my ribbon while still being able to view and access it easily. I’ve seen all sorts of ribbon storage ideas on other blogs, but instead of hunting for something to re-purpose or buying something new, I decided to take the easy way out and just use some wire hangers.
Now all my ribbon is easily within reach right in my craft closet! I can carry the hanger to wherever I’m working or just cut off the length I need right from the closet.
Quick and easy, and best of all it was FREE!
What method do you use to store your ribbon?
