keeping myself busy

while Daniel works on the laundry room, I have found a few things to occupy my time

I don't know about you (you may not wear headbands) but I always have a mess in my vanity drawer from my headbands tangling up everywhere. So I wrapped this Quaker Oats grits container with a little stuffing then covered it in a pretty "girly" rose pattern
and wah-lah no more mess

Daniel told me that we needed something to cover the UGLY fuse box in our almost done
much-needed-renovation
 laundry room 

So I made a menu board 

i love it...not only does it cover the ugly fuse box,
 it also helps me know what to get for groceries
so that I do not overspend



I had a wonderful visit with my friend Kaitlin last night who is due with her precious baby boy, Wyatt, in only 4 WEEKS!! She had been needing a swaddle blanket so of course I wanted to help out with that

i wrapped his present with his "swaddler"
I thought is turned out pretty cute.




Bentley wanted to tell you guys 
 "peace out and stay cool"
i just love this little guy

projects

While Daniel has been busy renovating the laundry room I have given myself a few projects to do.
Last night I made this adorable hand towel to hang in our kitchen

I also have made some changes once again to our bedroom
I made these precious pillows
and painted this picture

the birds are scrap pieces of cloth

and here is the finished room

DIY pillow from a shirt

I first got an old tshirt of Daniel's and a striped polo he never wears

I then cut the shirt into 2" strips and used a long basting stitch to be able to pull into ruffles
I also cut the polo and surged the sides to fit the amount of ruffles i had


I then sewed the ruffles to the front of the pillow
and once that was done I turned the pillow wrong-side out and sewed all sides together


Once that was done I unbuttoned the shirt and turned "right-side" out and stuffed it and buttoned it back
and this is what it looks like :)
