Ruffled Throw Pillows

I recently bought all new bedding for my room. I love it but it was a little dark. So I found some fabric that matched the green in the room and made some fun, ruffly, throw pillows to brighten the area up.

Before the pillows.....
See how dark

And with them
YAY!! Much better!

So cute!!

Purse Organizer

Yes, This is the inside of my purse! 

And it looks like this more often then not.

I honestly have no idea how all this stuff fits in my purse.  And see all that change, over 8 bucks worth and none of it was in my change purse. I got tired of dealing with this so I made a purse organizer.

Just a long piece of fabric that I hemmed and sewed pockets into.

Full of all my stuff

Now I have a nice organized purse where I can easily see everything.

Nature Turned Into Art

I have been wanting to do something with moss for awhile now.  I think its neat stuff and a simple way to bring nature-ish stuff indoors 

The big, ugly, empty wall that needed something fun.

What I made. I got to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, I got to play with moss and I made something fun for that empty space. YAY! 

I just painted some wooden letters. Took the glass out of 2 picture frames and glued some moss to the cardboard backing. Then hot glued my letters on.
Super Simple and Fun!

Lovers Lotto Cards

Mid-Week Romance lotto cards.
Super easy to make and can work for anyone with almost any subject or prizes.
Anniversaries, birthdays, any Holiday. Make a chore chart for your kids (scratch a circle to reveal their chore)... the possibilities are really endless

Here's how you make them

First print out your card. I made mine using photoshop.

Next use a white crayon and color over your prizes. Give it a generous amount.

Next take some acrylic paint (any color) and cover your prizes.

The wax from the crayon lets the paint be easily scratched off

Have fun and Enjoy!!
