The Wearing of the Green

The Sweetest little Irish Girl lives at my house
 with great anticipation for this March 17th
but Oh did the Flu hit our house with wrath
it has knocked us down flat as a cat.
So it seems we will have to find another day to wear Green...

Some paint and glaze

I inherited this coffee table from my sister...and she got it from my brother. I like the shape of it but I'm so over honey wood. So I bought some spray paint and went to town!
I thought glaze would be rad over the top of has lots of crevices and gauges and flaws/ glaze would bring all of that awesomeness out!

pre-glaze...rad but not super rad
 See all those cracks...they need glaze! For awesome tips and how to's on glazing go to All things Thrifty! Super awesome site and tutorials!
 Rub glaze on with a sponge brush...I get pretty dirty during this part. I like to squeeze the glaze out of the foam brush so it soaks into every crevice. This is the glaze I used...I just added black paint to it to tint it.
 Then rub it off...or don't. I lightly rubbed mine off. On the sides where there weren't many cracks, I left it a bit more glazed.

 Now I vote that it is super rad! And I still think it looks very comfy for Crew to take his naps on!

Tu-tu, onesie and headband...Cheap and easy gift!

I made this onesie, tutu and headband set for my new niece yesterday! I feel like it's an easy and cheap gift...most of the supplies I had on hand.
  • a glue gun (just for the headband)
  • elastic or tie the tulle to.
  • tulle...either from the bolt or a 6 inch roll of it... that's what i use.
  • felt, jewel and cut up tights for the can use a flower, ribbon or whatever you have on hand.
  • a onesie and scrap fabric to hand stitch on a monogram
  • spray adhesive (optional...I think it would stay on with just the stitching on the letter)
  • an hour to put it all together and WA-LA!
p.s. you don't need sewing skills or any skills, really, for this project! That's the best!

Oh yea, and a less than thrilled 4 year old boy to model it for you! Secretly he volunteered to be the model!
I especially love it with the buzz shirt and striped "leggings" if you will!
