Bathroom Corner Shelf Re-Do

I don’t know if I’m frugal, cheap or just hate throwing things away that can be saved.  I’m stubborn Irish, so I guess it’s more of the latter.  This Summer, I’ve been doing a lot of little repairs around the house while the weather has been nice.  This is one of those projects.

Jewelry Christmas Tree

It’s no secret that I have O.C.D. ~ Obsessive Christmas Disorder.

I think about Christmas all the time.  I can’t look at an everyday item without thinking, “How can I turn that into a Christmas decoration?”

That’s what happened when I posted the Walmart Gem Haul.  I saw those pieces of gaudy earrings & I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.  Those earrings became this:

Canvas Clock with Bling

When I’m in my craft room, I have a tendency to lose track of time.  There have been times when I’ve become so engrossed in a project that I’ve watched the sun come up.  One of the last times I did that, I realized that I needed a clock in there.  But, knowing me, I couldn’t just buy a clock… I had to make one.

Here’s the latest project for my craft room.  A DIY Canvas clock… With Bling.

New Crystal for my Window

I have a dear friend who gave me a very special gift.  He gave me a paper towel wrapped around something heavy.  It was one of the most beautiful crystals that I’ve ever seen.  He knows how much I love crystals & that I have a window full of them.  When the sunlight shines through my crystals, it fills my craft room with the most beautiful rainbows that you could imagine.  The sight of those rainbows inspire me, every day.

DIY Bling Tissue Box

It never fails, when I need a tissue, they’re in the other room.  And they’re always hidden under a tissue box cover because I can’t stand the patterns that are on those boxes.  The craft room is no exception.  Since I’ve been working on redoing the craft room, (that’s a whole story in itself that I’ll tell when it’s completed) I decided to make something pretty to hold the tissues.  This could be used in any room & done in any color of your choice.

A Painting for Baby’s Room

I have a sweet friend who has just given birth to a beautiful baby girl.  I wanted to do something special for her, and a one of a kind birth announcement wall hanging seemed perfect.  The baby’s room is being done in purple butterflies, so it made the theme for this wall hanging easy.  I also wanted to add a blessing to the painting.  The blessing is the same one that hung in my son’s nursery, oh so many years ago, so it had a special meaning to me.

This is the painting that I did for sweet little Chloe Nicole.  I hope her Mommy & Daddy like it.

Fabric Stiffened Angel – New Versions

Back in December of 2013, I posted a tutorial about how to make a fabric stiffened angel.  This is still my top pin on Pinterest.  To see the tutorial, go here.

Since then, I’ve done a couple more as gifts and I thought I’d show you how different they look just by changing up the fabrics.
