Valentine's Day Wreath

My daughter and I crafted this wreath for my favorite holiday...We repurposed our IKEA heart ornament to ZJOOSH it up a bit.

Craft Room Makeover x2!

My family has moved several times over the last few years.  Our most recent move is hopefully going to be more permanent.  Each time we moved I carved out a little nook for my crafts.  The first nook was a large walk-in closet.    I hated to leave my little craft closet behind so recreated it in my new home.  It is my favorite place in the house!

Decorative Bird Cages

I have wanted one of these for a while now...but I can't seem to find one.  I'm hoping to stumble upon one at a vintage shop or garage sale soon!  In the meantime, I can enjoy these...

Muff Making

I kept seeing these fabulous ladies and their faux fur muffs...so I decided to make one of my own.  Here is my inspiration...
From the Movie The Duchess

Movie - Marie Antoinette

I used a tutorial that I found at JoAnn Fabric
 Here are a few of the steps along the way and a closeup of the lovely charms I used to ZJOOSH it up a bit...

Yarn Graffiti a.k.a. Yarn Bombing

Have y'all heard about this?  It is called Yarn Bombing or Yarn Graffiti!  Peeps take their yarn to the streets and zjoosh up the things that they see (light posts, trees, meters, statues).  Love it!  Hmmm.....I wonder what needs to be decorated in my town!
