It's official...

I get to design and execute the best house project ever!!! A NURSERY! We've been waiting for what feels like forever for this, so the hubs and I are on cloud 9!  Stay tuned for lots of nursery ideas that I've accrued over the last year... or three ; )

God is SO good!

First real experience with the sewing machine = success!

I've decided that I didn't become crafty because I have some great knack at it, rather, it was out of necessity because when I decide I want a certain something, I won't give up until I can find it.  So, I decided I wanted some thick black and white striped seat cushions for our kitchen table but couldn't find them anywhere. I remembered I had these lovely things and decided to try to recover them:

And here they are recovered
I used black ribbob for the ties as seen above.  I like how they turned out, and the fabric was pretty inexpensive. I think the whole thing was about $20!

$3.50 project!

I found this wooden tray a few months ago at TJ Maxx (where else?) and I had an arrangement of white candles on it. Well, some of the wax fell onto the tray and I got it out as best as I could, but I couldn't get it all.

I added some fabric I found and loved but couldn't decide where to put it or what to recover, and voila! I bought a 1/2 of a yard so it was cheap as can be. I cut the fabric to size, and then sprayed adhesive glue (the same thing I used for our DIY tufted headboards I told you about a while back.
