Stop what you’re doing right now, grab yourself a cup or tea or coffee, and check out these darling tea mats Melissa Peda made over at 100 Billion Stars. Blues, pinks and big florals combine all my favorites into one easy sewing project!
Aren’t they smashing?! I can’t get enough of them. She used fabric from our newest line Caravelle Arcade. The darling pink monogram adds the perfect final touch. The best part is, these can be whipped up in a jiffy! Maybe surprise a dear friend, a favorite teacher, our invite your bestest friend over for tea and nibbley things on the back porch, and enjoy this glorious weather we are having. Melissa was sweet enough to send me 4 of these, and I’m ever so grateful for the surprise. They really brightened up my weekend.
Quick projects that make a huge impact are one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. How about you? I love seeing what you’ve been up to. Don’t be shy. Share with me on Facebook or Instagram.

I just love the way that sounded!!!!! Hey I was googling wreathes and look what I found the coolest tutorial by the coolest girl!! Ok so of course I can’t follow directions so I just used acrylics and watercolor paper because that’s what I had in the house! You probably saw my paper paintings on Instagram because FB and Pinterest has brought me to a wonderful place within and that is not to be scared of anything. Paints were definitely out of my comfort zone but painting a sheet of paper was like whoa!! I can do that. Baby steps friends when you are a beginner and let the uglies of being a beginner be ok. So I looked up this blog because this amazing wreath was staring me in the face and I had to know what it was all about. I want to paint paper the restoof my life..going for paperbags next. Hey girlfriend Jessica..how about a challenge sprinkle your confetti on painted strips and create a wreath!! I hope she’s listening..she’s got cool ideas!! So anyway here it is ..Giddy Giddy and then me!! She did it with cardboard and I did it with Styrofoam. Hey whatever you do it’s all about the fun!!
This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop. The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support “those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams.”
The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists. The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It was FABULOUS.
Our fearless leader, Jennifer Paganelli, was a guest speaker and led the group in creating vision books. The books were created by gluing inspiring cut outs (words, quotes, images) from magazines onto blank notebook pages.
There was yoga and lessons in make-up and skincare. We made our own dream catchers, ate delicious food (from the ladies at Whisk + Brush) and had a tutorial in all things confetti! Take a look below of more images from the incredibly talented Victoria Gloria:

So, take a basic tote and cut out some cool geometric shapes. Here we imagined circles. Other ideas can include diamonds, rectangles, squares etc.. Here we’ve used Lucky Girl… SOON we will all be able to use Beauty Queen.. (we can’t wait a minute longer!)
Use a fabric glue or adhesive backing to tack these puppies onto a tote in a simple pattern. In minutes you can go from a basic tote… to a tote-ally awesome tote. Share you pics with us on facebook!
Popped this stunning, striped wall up in a jiff today! We simply painted the wall with a chalkboard paint (let it dry for a few weeks) and then slapped up these fabulous Wall Pops stripes … voila!
