If you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here’s what I shared her on homework.
Now on to the projects featured this week.
Have you ever decoupaged? Decoupaging has been around for a long time. It’s a fun, versatile craft that just got even better. Martha Stewart has introduced a new line of decoupage products that are amazing. Think fabric paper, lace and trims. The possibilities are endless! Want to decoupage a plate? The formulas are dishwasher safe. Decorating a tote bag? There’s an oil cloth formula that will make your tote bag super durable.
Getting rid of fruit flies can be a problem. They hide, buzz around, annoy you and then hide again. You can try swatting at them but they’re hard to swat. I’ve tried different variations of fruit fly recipes over the years but they never worked for me. The fruit flies would seem interested in the different concoctions that I’d make but never be tempted enough to take a swan dive into the cup of liquid.
Spray painting a wine bottle is such a fun and easy craft project and the results are instantly gratifying. For this project, I added some pretty lace detail and I love how it turned out.
Fall is around the corner but for now I’m hanging on to summer. I’ve been into yellow lately – it’s so bright and cheery and I’ve added little pops of yellow here and there in my kitchen.
This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cooking Light, Sunset, and Real Simple magazines, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BTSatSafeway http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.
Back to school time means quick and easy meal choices. Breakfast needs to be readily available for those frenzied mornings. Lunches need to be preplanned or even premade and ready to pack up. Dinners require menu planning and organized grocery shopping. I pretty much have those three meals under control during the school year. But I tend to fall short on after school and after sports snacks. But this year, I’m vowing to do better.
It’s back to school time and that means it’s time for school supplies. I always loved getting brand new school supplies. I especially loved getting new notebooks, binders and composition books. All those blank pages ready for me to be neat and organized all year – or at least that what my intention was. Now a days, you can buy notebooks with pretty designs but it’s so much more fun to diy! Here’s a round up of some beautiful and inspiring notebooks.
Have you heard of Project Life? It’s an amazing scrapbooking product that has great design elements but goes back to basics in how you create and assemble your scrapbook.
Many of you know my love for the dollar store. I find some of the best little goodies in those stores. I recently found packs of these beautiful paper flowers.
When it comes to jewelry, I’m definitely a bracelet girl. Some people look great in big statement necklaces, fun earrings or blingy rings. But I love bracelets. I like to layer them and wear several at once – bangles, beads, stones – you name it.
I made some covered buttons and some combination covered buttons. They aren’t truly vintage because I made them but the metal button caps and backs are The Original Prims Cover Your Own Buttons.
