Necklace holder

Don't stash your wearable art in a drawer or in a armoire where it can't be seen, display it. If your like my friend that I made this for and have tons of necklaces this would be perfect for you. It's wall decor that's functional because it holds your beautiful jewelry, decorates your wall and is a shelf as well.

Laundry room decor

I swear that two socks go into the dirty clothes hamper then the washing machine and then the dryer but when it comes time to match them and put them away one is missing. This is one of life's many mysteries. At least this is a cute way to display the separated sock until it is reunited with its mate (hopefully): 


12x24 hardwood

Clothes pins


Spray paint

Acrylic paint

Strong adhesive 

Stencils or die cutting machine (I used a Cricut)

Gender Reveal Baby Shower

Bee themed baby shower:

Decorating for this baby shower was a little challenging, not because of decorations or planning but because I knew the sex of the baby and couldn't tell anyone.... yeah challenging. On the other hand it was kinda fun to know something that only me and the mom-to-be knew. It was suppose to be a true gender reveal shower and she was going to find out along with her family and friends, but the sonogram show very clearly what the sex is. 

Beautiful Mom-to-bee:

Wedding decor

I love attending weddings and witnessing two people express their love and make promises of happily ever after. But a very close second to being invited to one is being able to create something for one.  

I was excited when the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. came to me to create a banner announcing their new family. The Henderson Wedding theme: Country Chic with sunflowers, burlap and lace. 

Sure there are those fancy die cutting machines that cut letters but i still prefer painting by hand with help from stencils.

That's me painting away.  

Not only is it wedding decor but it will be framed and hung in their home as a reminder of their special day! I couldn't be any happier ��!

Jewelry holder/Wall decor

I have a jewelry armoire but the side doors that hold my necklaces were getting crowded and some of my necklaces were too long. I also needed something on the short wall between my closet and bathroom so I killed two birds with one stone by making this:

Correction I killed three birds with one stone, I also finally put to use the fabulous sequined paper I found at Michael's.

I knew right away whatever I was gonna make was going to include two things: chevron and grey. As I've said before choosing colors and color combinations is the hardest decision because the possibilities are endless. After staring at my color board and paints for days I narrowed it down to turquoise, magenta, yellow, and black. And well you see the winning colors. But I have some black and magenta knobs to switch if I feel like a change :).
