Last month I shared what I saw and what I liked at the CHA winter trade show. I wrote about new products I was excited about and the things I saw that inspired me. However, the reason that I was there in the first place was to share how I make these faux robin eggs […]

Today’s guest post is from this fabulous blogger that I met on twitter, discovered we were both Southern California girls and decided to host The SoCal Social together. We totally hit it off and I am so glad we’re friends. She is one of the nicest people ever, super duper creative, has fabulous jewelry tutorials, […]
Hello, friends! I love upcycling and recycling projects, and there is no one better at this than Johnnie at Saved By Love Creations. Not only is she super talented, but she can sniff out other fabulous projects and round them up, categorize them and make them easy to find in one place! I’ve written before about […]

Here’s a simple way to get another use […]

Last year, Sandra from Sawdust & Paper Scraps made a very cool Halloween candelabra, and I really, really wanted to make one too, but didn’t get around to it. (I met Sandra at The Haven Conference last June, and I must confess I have quite the Girl Crush on her… she is awesome!) Sandra’s is a fab tutorial on […]
