It’s Time to Decorate!

I have never been the most enthusiastic about Halloween but this year is different. Malcolm is too old to trick-or-treat and he loves handing out the candy. So that means we are staying home and making our own fun and decorations. I have starting doing some looking around (and “Pin-ing”, of course) and the ideas above are where we are going to start.

  1. Spiderwebs out of black plastic trash bags from Fast Forward.
  2. Little mice hiding around the corner from Martha Stewart.
  3. This monster at the door will be great fun on Halloween night!
  4. The bats are loose – all over the walls! Such a cute idea from Made Everyday.

A New Pattern! An Award Ribbon


This was a recent project for a client. She wanted award ribbons for party decor. I looked around at different ways people had made them and played around with their ideas but in the end, created my own way. This way seemed to work best for me and created an even and easy-to-make ribbon. I have created several of these and will make more!

Included in this pattern/tutorial are a few different options for you to personalize your ribbon for your own use. I would love to see your final product! You can get your Award Ribbon Pattern here.




Spring Fling Favors


A friend of mine is planning a great spring party. I have worked with her in the past creating different items for her parties and she tasked me with creating these great drink stirrers that she came across online here. I took the idea from that tutorial, added this tutorial on the flowers and voila! –  my version!
