Fabulous Idea

Christy Bennett had an idea a year ago and after lots of consideration she has launched what I deem to be the next best thing from this world.  Are you ready???  Pre-made, lined, drapes!!!! I just think this is an idea that will be a huge hit!!  I am over the moon excited.  Once they find Darling Drapery  they’ll just have to deal with which ones to get!!!!  So many possibilities and she makes it affordable!!! Christy I think you are on the tipping point of something big and I know it is going to take off!!!  throw drapes up and have a party!!!! Match some pillows and you are good to go.  Congrats Christy!!So get over to Etsy and take a look at her collection.  I know you will love what you see….which room will you tackle first?

Banner in Girls World

So let’s change it up and use some of the projects from Girls World to make Holiday items.  You are going to love this one.  Who doesn’t love a little felt in their lives? Vintage pom poms?  Ok so I got your attention.  I’m sure you all remember the banner in Girls World.  It was a Happy Birthday banner but I changed it up a bit to now say Merry Christmas.  You will need wool felt I got mine on Etsy, stabilizer backing, diecuts from Maya Road the white flowery part, and felt letters called stickit’s mine are from ebay. Of course a Girls World Book  to keep you on track.  The sentiment is all yours..You make it up!!  So love that you come by it means the world to me!!!
