Project Day; Magnet Board


What a great way to recycle an old photo frame... All you need is:

  • Frame
  • Fabric (we used Garden District in Mockingbird Pink by Heather Bailey)
  • Recycled metal sheet
  • Buttons
  • Magnets
  • Paint
  • Spray adhesive
  • Tin snips
Cut down your metal sheet with tin snips to the size of the frame then cut and glue your fabric to the metal. Put this together with your painted frame. Create some magnets with our beautiful buttons by simply gluing them together.

Have a great weekend.

Project Day - Remnant Lampshade

We found inspiration on Pinterest for this project. All that is required is some fabric scraps, pinking shears and a lampshade. You don't need your sewing machine for this project. We simply cut leftover fabrics into long strips, wrapped them around the lamp shade and tied them off. Finish off with pom poms.
Have a great weekend.

Supposed to Be


Picture Number One: What I am supposed to be doing this morning (ie: unpacking stock).
Picture Number Two: What I keep seeing out front and it is seriously distracting me.
Happy Spring Monday!
I ADORE Spring.
