It's amazing what a little trim can do. Adding decorative trim to something is so simple and gives such a stylish look. It can turn a tacky tank to into a tremendous tank in just minutes. This tank makeover took less than 20 minutes from start to finish and I love the way it turned out!

tweet tweet

I am in love with this! This little bird makes me wanna tweet and chirp a happy song. I love birds, bird pictures, bird paper crafts, bird pillows and home get the point. The DIYDish opened season three with this fun and easy to make pincushion. Fabric designer, Joel Dewberry, was so kind to share this project from his book, Sewn Spaces. But, that's not all! There's a giveaway going on HERE for a chance to win lots of great prizes. So, spread your wings and fly on over for a chance to win!

J.S. I love you

Often there are no words to describe an emotion. I find it easier sometimes to let my heart pour itself out on paper using a paint brush and not a pen. So, call me quirky, but it works for me. Creating something is somehow my way of letting my heart breath. I know it sounds strange but it is true. There is a physical release of energy that allows me to vent my feelings.

After meeting Donna Downey a few times at an art conference and taking her classes. I have grown to love her way of expressing her thoughts in her work. I am totally fed by her. She is a unique person and somehow, though we are so different, I learn from her. Not so much her technique (I still need lots of practice) but the way her heart beats, her passion if you will.

So, this is how I spent a good portion of my weekend, creating something for a dear friend. Emotions, paint, emotions, get the picture. J.S. (Jamie Sue) I love you. Hope you enjoy this little piece of my heart!

"My Mama made it"

There are little sayings that each one of us mother's love to hear our children say. Some of my most favorite are obviously those sweet I love you's and kisses that speak volumes.
However, there is a special place in my heart for the times that my little ones respond to others with, "My Mama made it". It melts my heart everytime!

*You can make yours too...HERE!*

so chic

Now this is what a call riding in style! I would love to have one of these for myself, motorized of course. I can just picture it...warm sunshine, scarf blowing in the wind, shopping bags and totes adorning my arms...LOL! A girl can dream, right?

Isn't this just the cutest little girls trike. Another great find from Zulily!

If you haven't ever checked out Zulily, it's time that you did. They have lots of unique things for infants, toddlers, kids, women and even some things for the home/office. I found these adorable guitar back packs while browsing around. Aren't they just the cutest!
