Hey there friends! Thank you so much for all your sweet comments about our new office space! Seriously, I am getting so much more work done simply because I don’t hate sitting at that ugly desk anymore!!
Hey there y’all!! Last week I had the crafting bug. Every once in a while…ok all the time, I get the urge to make something with my hands. I had been itching to make some sweater pumpkins that I had been seeing everywhere, so I headed to the thrift store. I found a sweater that I thought would work and a really cool plaid skirt. The skirt was actually cute, but didn’t fit – but the fabric was awesome! 😉 I brought them home and gathered a few more supplies and got started.
Last week I shared with you these cute crates that I placed in our kitchen window and filled with succulents. Today I am sharing with you just how easy these little lovelies are to plant.
Hey y’all!! I mentioned that at Haven conference last month we were given a huge bag of swag compliments of several sponsors. Today I paired together two of those freebies and created something fun for our kitchen.
I’ve never tried my hand at succulents and I don’t have the greenest of thumbs so we shall see how it goes!
I’m not sure when or where (I’m sure somewhere on the internet), but I saw the idea of taking old t-shirts from over the years and making a quilt out of it. A way to preserve the memories that would be useful. I loved it so much that I started saving my kids t-shirts. Man oh man do they have a lot of t-shirts! Every activity comes with a shirt, school activities, extra-curricular activities, church activities – all with a shirt. I even keep jerseys! Where do you store all those? you might ask – I keep a plastic tub in the corner of each of their closets. As they outgrow shirts, they go in the tub. It’s a good idea for you, the mom, to make the decisions on which ones are tub-worthy or not, or you might end up with wayyy more than you can use. (speaking from experience).
I have now completed two of these – one for each of my now college kids. Many of the techniques I used with the first one I used with the second one, but I also made a few changes that made my life a little bit easier.
There are soooo many different ways you could approach the piecing together of the quilt, but there are some basics that are going to be the same. I’ll walk you through how I put mine together and give you some alternatives along the way.
