Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's had a great week. Been fighting off something so have not exactly been too creative, not to mention a new puppy who would gladly eat all my supplies if given the chance. Hope everyone who's celebrating Father's Day this weekend has a wonderful one.
Let's take a look at some ideas shared at last week's party!
Llamas are everywhere right now and I absolutely LOVE this pillow shared by Kippi At Home. We've had to hide most of the throw pillows from the pup so I'm pinning this idea for later!
How cute (and practical) is this Potted Succulent Coffee Scrub from Soap Deli News? These would make fun gifts!
I bet any Dad would be thrilled to have this Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake shared by Lou Lou Girls.
Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week!
Happy Friday eve all. The first one of June. YIKES! Jumping right into features from last week's party.
If you are looking to add some fun and artful pieces to your garden, then check out the 7 ideas that Chas from Chas's Crazy Creations has and she has a bunch of them. I love this gazing ball that she made with Gallery Glass paints!
If your doormat needs refreshing, check out this fun painted one from Handmade Weekly using one from IKEA ( which reminds me, I'm way over due for an IKEA trip) . Simple but impactful.
Bird's Party shared this amazing Peanut Butter Celebration Cake that makes me want to reach through the screen. If only we could right? Perfect for showers and graduation parties this time of year or just because!
Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!
Hi all and how is it the end of May already?! This is about the time of year I start thinking "oh I have plenty of time to work on holiday gifts" and time then goes at warp speed. Hope everyone's had a good week!
Let's see some ideas from last week's party. Once again, I thank you all for choosing to share your creations here each week!
As a maker, I go through different phases of obsession w/ different materials. Right now, I've rediscovered my love of fibers and absolutely love this Table Runner from Yarn Scissors Silk. It's a great way to use up all those bits you just can't bring yourself to part with!
Love this framed DIY Moroccan Tile inspired Wall Art from Kippi At Home. These are just my colors but think of all the possibilities! There may even be a free SVG file involved but you'll just have to go see.
There are card tables and then there are Card Tables. How much fun is this one? From Whispers of the Heart. The Queen of Hearts would be very jealous!
Finally, look at these bite size bits of perfection in these Reeses Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups from Family Cookie Recipes.
Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week!
Happy Friday Eve once again . I cannot believe we are staring down the end of May, that it's Memorial Day Weekend already, which means the start of Summer! Before you know it we'll be seeing Halloween stuff. Yikes!
Before that happens, let's take a look at some of the ideas shared at last week's party!
With Memorial Day soon to be followed by Fourth of July , this pillow from Lisa and Fresh Vintage By LisaS is a perfect addition to your decor.
I don't read as much as I used to ( thanks internet) but when I do, I still love holding a physical book in my hands. And that means having a bookmark. I love these from Yarn Scissors Silk which are a great way to use up scraps of ribbon and miscellaneous beads and embellishments.
If you need a dessert for Memorial Day barbecues ( or just because) check out this Bailey's Chocolate Chip Cheesecake from Marilyn's Treats.
I had so much fun with my last project / first Embroidery Hoop Fiber project that I couldn't wait to do another one. Michaels helped me out by having some yarn on clearance. Since I already had the hoops and other yarn on hand, I spent $6 for some quirky chunky yarn that will make a few projects and happened to match a painting I'd done for our bedroom.
Embroidery Hoops 2 Sizes
Part of this project involved Circular Weaving, something I stumbled upon after looking around Pinterest after my last project. Oh boy...gonna be addicting! Here's the video I used to learn how to "warp the hoop" (ooh don't I sound fan-cy?)
Once that was done, I threaded the yarn over and under the sections of the "warped hoop" until I felt like changing yarns. I made sure to always end on the reverse side, tied on a new color, resumed.
I went all the way to the end but you don't have to.
For the bigger hoop, I tied the yarn as shown and then glued the smaller hoop inside the bigger hoop and tied a couple of strands on the smaller hoop's hardware. I had a rolled felt rose leftover from the other piece so I plopped it on top.
Well this week has flown by. I hope all the Moms had a wonderful Mother's Day! Jumping right into some features from last week's party!
I have always had a thing for Boxwood Wreaths but I don't have a thing for their prices. Or, I do have a thing for their prices which is they're SO EXPENSIVE. So here's a great one from The Organized Dream that won't break the bank!
Keeping with the green ideas, how about these Terrariums fro Fresh Vintage by LisaS? It's such nice way to bring the outside in.
I've seen this quote a few times and I really like it. I LOVE what Chas from Chas's Crazy Creations did with the supplies she found at Dollar Tree.
What's better than Oreos or cake except putting them together?! Check out this recipe from Lou Lou Girls. Yum!
OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week!
