I was “pinning” on Pinterest, and came across so many fun DIY ideas that I thought I’d share! So many easy and affordable ideas to try at home that would be perfect for outdoor barbeques, garden parties, and birthdays. A creative way to make your party a memorable one for your guests. I can’t wait to try out some of these beautiful DIY’s! To check out the “pins” click here.
Old tea or spice tins make perfect little storage helpers for your fridge or magnetic message board. I used “Mod Podge” to adhere some pretty fabric scraps and simply hot glued magnets to the back. So cute and handy! Use them for pens, pencils, rubber bands, etc. and finally clean out that messy kitchen drawer!
Tip – Be sure to use strong magnets so the tins don’t slide down the fridge. Also be sure to let the “Mod Podge” dry completely before gluing.
My daughter Isabella and I spent the other evening creating these easter eggs by decoupaging elements from my paper party napkin collection. I wanted to use real eggs but for the sake of wanting to keep them for a longer time, I used wooden eggs from Michaels. To prep for this, I painted the eggs using basic acrylic paint. I then cut out the designs from the napkins. Admittedly, this part was a bit painstaking but so worth it in the end. I used glossy mod podge to adhere the design on and then coated the entire egg with more mod podge. I put the eggs in little flower pots and have them on my mantle but I think they’d make a great little addition to the Easter table. Enjoy the long weekend everyone!

Here are some cheerful gift tags for you to download and cut out. I think they look prettier than the regular rectangular tags don’t you? Feel free to add glass glitter or other embellishments. Warmest holiday wishes:)
Here is a super cute gift idea for anyone who has a dog. If you don’t happen to have a picture of their beloved canine you can purchase a stock image for a couple of bucks. I found the perfect Mini Schnauzer picture here and it has an unmistakably Maisy-ish look.
Maisy is our faithful seven-year old pooch and her portrait will now hang on our picture wall. If you use Photoshop you can simply create a top layer, trace the picture and fill it in with black. I also added words that describe Maisy in a dark grey tone so as not to take away from the silhouette. This is a nice way to personalize the gift. If you don’t use a graphics software you can simply print out the photo and use it as a template for a black paper or card stock cut-out. To personalize it just write the name of your friend’s pet at the bottom. Frame with an inexpensive frame (we got ours from Ikea for $4.99) and voila, perfect gift for the pet lover!!
I’m so excited about getting crafty with my new Cricut Imagine Cartridge, Floral Emporium! The collection is complete with 20 new flower patterned designs. I had fun designing the patterns so I hope you’ll have fun creating! Be sure to watch the video for some inspiration:)
Here’s a fun and super easy Halloween craft! I used Speedball Speedy-Carve blocks readily available at Michael’s . This material cuts like butter and is so fast to work with, just use any carving knife or the following set, also available at Michael’s. I stamped my designs onto glassine bags and I think they make great goody bags for Halloween.
You can download my designs here if you’d like or create your own. Have fun and Happy Halloween!
