Happy Valentine’s Week… now get to loving the people who you adore! 🙂
It was our first time hosting a gathering under the name of Where Roses Bloom, and what a success it was! A Flannel Friendsgiving came together over many, many dedicated hours to painting leaves, handwriting place cards, gathering pine cones, and creating elegant floral arrangements. Oh, and lots and lots of baking. We are so incredibly happy with how everything turned out, and extremely impressed by the talented cooks we call friends! Who knew?!
We are two very blessed girls who are so thankful for the opportunity to have their friends gather together and enjoy each other’s company during this busy holiday season. Take a look at our pictures as we reminisce on such a beautiful night with a few close Nashville friends.
We hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving with those you who are dear to you.
I honestly can’t believe that it is almost August! I have had such a wonderful time this summer thrifting, hiking, taking trips, and crafting, but one of my favorite things I have done so far this summer was go on a pretty spontaneous trip to the beach with my friends from back home. With just a few short days to plan, I decided it would be fun to design a tote for transporting all of my favorite things to the beach. There’s not too much needed to create this tote, and it can easily be done in one afternoon.
The supplies that you’ll need to make this no-sew tote are listed above and can be found at your local craft store. I purchased just a half yard of fabric since I knew that the anchor I created would not take too much to make.
The steps to create the tote are pretty simple! 1- You’ll need to flip your fabric over and draw an anchor the size that you’d like it to be on your bag (not pictured). Once you have your anchored design marked, simply cut it out of the fabric. 2- Use fabric glue on the back of your fabric anchor and adhere it to the tote in whatever placement you prefer. Let the glue dry completely– I let it dry for 30 minutes to make sure it was secure. 3- Once the glue has dried, you can now use paint to add designs to your tote. I chose to use a glitter paint around the edge of the anchor to add a little glitz. Don’t forget to let this glue dry for about 15 minutes.
And there you have it! A nautical-themed tote that can carry all that you need for a quick getaway. Hope you all get to fit in a trip to a favorite place full of exciting adventures, there’s plenty out there to be explored!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Today could not be a more perfect day to celebrate the father in your life. I wanted to share with you today a quick and fun way to make a memory book for someone special whether it be your father or your best friend. It’s a great way to express your love for them and also allows you to express your creative side, too!
I purchased my scrapbook at the local craft store as a pre-built scrapbook created by K & C Company. The pages are all unique and bound into the book so that helped me save on time and money.
I gathered old photos and extras I could use for added detail on the pages to make each page truly one-of-a-kind. You can choose to add whatever you like to your pages such as old ticket stubs, magazine clippings, newspaper articles– the sky’s the limit!
When I began this memory book, I focused on NOT forcing myself to be the “average” scrapbooker and to let myself be completely expressive. My pages are filled with scraps of paper and fun objects that helped bring each to life.
Don’t be afraid to doodle on your pages if you’d like! Make each page as personal as you’d like, and it’s completely up to you to put in as much time and detail as you want.
And don’t worry about making a mess, it happens! Allow yourself the space to get in your creative zone. I think it’s extremely important that you show what you feel inside in this memory book of yours! Below are a few excerpts from my scrapbook I made as a memory book of my father. He was a very special man who loved everyone so much! I had so much fun spending my nights putting together a book of memories of him.
I hope you have a great time making your own book and gifting it to that special someone if you so choose.
We’re always looking for fun and creative ways to display our favorite things. This project incorporates two of Bethany’s favorite things, jewerly and trees. A jewelry tree is an easy way to add organization and beauty to your room, and it’s also a great way to showcase your unique pieces! All you need to make your very own jewelry tree are the following items:
Bethany used rocks and pebbles in her vase, but the possibilities are endless! A few other ideas we had to add weight to the vase were: pennies, painted rocks, chandelier prisms, marbles, sand, keys and gear parts. Make sure that your vase has enough weight to hold the tree limb upright. Bethany added a little sparkle to the moss by applying glue and glitter. Once the glue had dried, she placed it on top of the pebbles and added the tree limb to the vase. Last and final step: adding your jewelry! It’s up to you to choose what you’d like to display- all gold, all silver, or a mixture of all sorts. Below, you can see Bethany’s pretty tree in her room! Enjoy making your very own!
