How To Restore Vintage Suitcases

July 6, 2016
How to restore vintage suitcases

I found these beauties at a Volkswagen car show for $5 each!  I have always loved vintage suitcases and vividly remember my Grandmother traveling with them. I originally purchased them to be used in my VW bus.  I used the train case as my tool box because I just couldn’t have ugly tools muddling about. The other two suitcases I simply wanted to use for camping supplies and clothing for our camping trips.  Of course, I had to rid them…

How to Make a Pot Holder

How to make a pot holder

If you burn your dinner as often as I do then you know that your pot holders can get gross pretty quickly.  Honestly, all of ours are gross. It’s embarrassing.  On a mission to change that I decided to make some new pot holders.  I pinned plenty of how-to’s on Pinterest years ago and have stalled long enough. Rose and I chose some fun fabrics to use with coordinating fabric for the binding.  I didn’t pay attention and I ended…

How to Have a Successful Craft Booth

How to have a successful craft booth

I have a small crafty business and ventured into the world of craft booths last year.  As always, I made a last-minute decision to join the local weekly Farmers Market.  I signed up without a booth, a plan, or any idea of what I was doing.  Enter Pinterest.  I searched pictures, ideas, lists, and guides which gave me enough info to get set up.  However, as with most things in life you don’t really learn until you just do it!…

Crocheting a Boho Wall Hanging

June 9, 2016
Hexie Love Actually

I ran across this pattern online last week and fell in love!  It couldn’t have come at a better time since it is Netflix binge watching season. (otherwise known has the hot and humid summer in Georgia)  Anyone that knows me knows that I don’t sit still well at all.  Heck, even at work I have a stand up desk and I’m still walking in place all day and fidgeting.  So, crocheting is perfect to do while watching TV for…

Fabric Basket Tutorial

Fabric basket tutorial

I had a bit of free time on Sunday and since I’m such a wild and crazy girl I found something new to sew!  These fabric baskets caught my eye.  I followed the tutorial by Fabric Mutt.  Let’s be clear when I say I “followed” the tutorial I mean that loosely.  I have a problem with following directions. My life would be easier if I would fix that. If you follow her tutorial you will be golden. This is a…

The Crafty Camper

I recently went on a yurt camping trip with my girlfriends so I thought I would share a few things that I made for the trip.  I found both of these tutorials on Pinterest (Be sure to follow our page for great new ideas). The log carrier has been one of my favorite projects.  It’s very easy to make and it has proven to be useful on many occasions.  It carries good size logs without a problem.  I used sticks…

Beach Essentials

Kerry and I are beach bound soon!  I thought I would share a few things that I have made for our beach trip! I found both of these ideas on Pinterest. I made these beach bags from window screen!  Who knew that you could sew with window screen?  I surely didn’t.   I followed this tutorial.  Window screen is very inexpensive and pretty easy to sew with.  The sand does not get trapped in your bag so it’s ideal! I…

Fabric memory game tutorial

March 7, 2016
Tutorial for Fabric Memory Game

Playing a game of memory is a childhood classic.  It’s fun for kids at a young age all the way to adults.  Usually the only memory games that you can find in the store are made of little cardboard cards.  If you want to make a differant version try out this fabric version.  It’s harder to destroy than the cardboard cards so maybe it will stick around to be passed down from one sibling to the next. You will need…

Waxed Cotton Food Wraps – Pinterest Wins!

March 1, 2016

I found this clipboard idea on Pinterest.  I purchased nine inexpensive clipboards and hung them in my foyer about a year ago!  I can’t tell you how much I adore them.  I hung them right at the bottom of the stairs so the quotes are in constant view.  I change the quotes monthly and my kids always like to read the new ones.  This is an inexpensive way to add inspiration to your home!   I have wanted to make…
