I would never call myself artsy. Creative? Sure. Artsy? No way. If you give me a brush and tell me to paint something, you would get something that looks like a 2 year old made it. Wait, that isn’t kind to all the 2-year olds. When I’m looking to create something a little more detail-oriented (i.e. anything but a blob), I turn to stencils. Stencils are my BFF. So when Plaid contacted me asking if I wanted to try out Ed Roth’s Stencil1 stencils, I was totally game. AND, better yet, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them… create DIY stenciled tea towels!
Hi. My name is Talitha and I’m addicted to shiny things. There. I said it. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? As much as I like shiny and sparkly stuff, I’ve always been a little afraid of glitter. I blame it on a first grade art project that ended with me washing glitter out of my hair for weeks! But, when Amy from Mod Podge Rocks emailed me asking me if I would review her new line of stencils, I decided that maybe it was a good time to give glitter a second chance. BTW, after getting Amy’s email, I may or may not have done a little happy dance while yelling, “SHE KNOWS ME!?!?” a la Buddy the Elf. Yeah. I know. Me = weirdo.
We are on our way to Chicago today to visit family for the holidays. So rather than scrambling to write a post in the midst of my mad dash to pack, do laundry, and clean the past few days, I thought I would share a few DIY oldies but goodies that I shared last Christmas. Christmas is just a week away but all 8 of these DIY holiday ideas are so simple that you can have them done in no time! Continue reading

HI!!! It is so good to be back to DIY-ing after being gone on a mini-vacay to Tennessee this past week. While my hubby attended a nerdy conference I got to hang out with my sister, brother-in-law, and 3 nieces! It was great. Anywho, back to the crafting. Not too long ago I was sent the most wonderful box of goodies. Let me tell you, opening a box full of Martha Stewart Decoupage items can make a girl’s day.
I found fabric-to-fabric medium, oil cloth finish, some Martha paints, soft bristle brushes, beautiful lace trims and fabric cut-outs. I knew instantly that I wanted to create a lace trimmed pillow. I’ve been meaning to update some of my pillows to go with our new home colors so this was a perfect opportunity!
