Finally Back from NYC!

I’m finally home from NYC! I had so much fun, ate way too much, and (randomly) bought a ton of fabric and Christmas ornaments. We were there for a full week and I was getting so antsy to get back and work on some killer projects! I visited The City Quilter, which was amazingly inspiring and Purl Soho, which was overwhelmingly cozy!  I had a great time, but am really excited to get back into my routine! After some serious sleep, that is!

 

DIY: Thanksgiving Place Cards

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and while, I can fully appreciate the super fancy table setting I’ve been seeing around the interwebs, I am way too lazy to actually execute that. I decided the best idea for Thanksgiving was to cover the table with craft paper, that way at the end of the night, you can throw your table covering the recycling bin. It’s easy clean up and three less steps you have to deal with.

I, also, made up a few of these banners. I love the way they turned out, it’s super easy to do and really cute! Best of all, you don’t have to do any work, because I did it for you. If you want to download a page of these, just click here:

In Transit

I’m travelling today! Tommy and I are headed to New York! I’ve never been, so I’m super excited. Tommy will be competing in the Cut And Paste World Championship on Saturday, so wish him luck!

DIY: Fall Feather Wreath

I always love when projects just fall into place. This one was super easy, took about 5 minutes and was inexpensive to make. I had originally bought this grape vine wreath at the dollar store and was going to style it with flowers, but I was being extra irritable and picky about what flowers I wanted.Then I went to Beverly’s a few days ago and they have pheasant feather on sale! I figured it was a great solution and project came in at about $7. Win!

What you’ll need:

-A grapevine wreath. I got mine at Dollar Tree, but I’ve seen others at Target for $2.50

- Pheasant feathers

- Feather flourishes

-Glue gun

I just eyeballed where I wanted the feathers to go and glue gunned them. It really depends on the feathers and their size. I chose to use a long, medium and short feather on one side and one medium feather on the other. I used the feather flourishes to cove up the bottom of the feathers and all the glue. Super easy and super quick.

Enjoy xoxo
