Pinnable Me Friday: Tapestry Rug

I only have one pin to share today, but it is so awesome, it will be enough...




I saw this amazing rug/wall tapestry on Pinterest last week and I haven't been able to get it off my mind. I mean, it looks amazing, and if you look at the tutorial here, it sounds pretty easy.

And of course, I was like - duh, I can do that. So my neighbor and I trekked it over to Michael's last Sunday for their 25% off everything in the store sale and I stocked up on rope (yarn), string and a gazillion pom poms.

I sat down and started my first pinwheel (that's what I'm gonna call them) and it took me a while to get into the groove. But, after about an hour or so, I had this...



And then about an hour later, I finished the first circle, cut it off the cardboard template, and it fell apart. All that work for nothing. And then I realized I totally bought the wrong type of colored cord. See, I decided I would be smart and buy the plastic cord that you use to make kids necklaces and things because it would stretch. Too bad it stretched so much, it balled up into something that resembled a little hat when I cut the cords.

So, I took another trip to the crafty store this week. I'm hoping I bought the right stuff this time. I'm gonna give it another go this weekend and maybe I'll make some progress.

So what do you think? Worth the effort? Do you think it's as cool as I do?

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!



New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.


Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
