I made me some pom poms!

Pom Pom flowers...easy peasy and they look good.

I started out with a couple of these floral holders that I got at Michael's. Don't want to brag but they were only $2.50 each!! Seriously...I can scan in my receipt if you don't believe me Geesh! Being that they were only a couple bucks I didn't feel horrible giving them a little spray paint makeover. My son said they looked like the color of poop. Can't have white we go!

Distress a bit ...make some pom poms out of some fuzzy yarn. I didn't use regular yarn. I used like a really soft and furry yarn. I like how they turned out.

Then vacuum up yarn clippings for days!!

Check out my bed!

First off, let me just excuse the quality of pictures. They are from my phone. My camera isn't charging for some reason...grrrr!! is my bed! Yay!!! I looooooove it! It looks like a hotel bed to me, and I don't know about you, but I LOVE hotel beds. They always look so comfy and inviting. But we must always remember to NEVER lay on a hotel bedspread k? Ok.

First off, my comforter isn't new. I just added some pizazz via pillows and a blanket! So look at these lovelies...they are called European pillows. My mom's friend had some and that is what got us on the kick. These were found at Anna's Linens, however, IKEA has them for cheaper and better quality. The shams that they had for them are just plain and boring so I spruced them up a bit with a tip I saw here.

Much better.

And feast your eyes on this....take your time....isn't it yummy??? I saw it while at IKEA and fell in love. It is so pretty and bouncy. Just the thing I needed to give my bed some ruffle.

Love it!!!

Tuxedo Tank

I decided to dress up a plain white tank I had. And I love me some polka dots..and black and white.

Just made a ruffle and sewed it on the tank. Super simple and easy. The next one I do I think I will take the ruffle down the whole length of the shirt.

Fishy Centerpiece

For a church dinner, My 5-year old daughter and I were asked to make a centerpiece that expressed something we enjoyed doing together. We decided to try and combing our love of crafting projects, cooking, and nature; this fishy centerpiece was the results.

I completely stole the tissue paper wreath from a very creative craft blogger, Sausha, at Show & tell. Click here for instructions. (Although, we did add the orange glitter paint to add a little more fun---orange because it's my daughter's favorite color)

Then we used our glass ivy bowl, some speckled candy rocks at the bottom, berry blue jell-0, and Sweedish fish to create our nature scene. Then we tied an orange bow at the top to finish it off. Kinda fun and a great way to combine all the things we love.
