Marker Box Storage

Happy Monday Everyone!

Ever have markers and random pens laying around the house that you don’t know how to store? I have had this problem for a while with random plastic cups holding markers and pencil crayons that the cats would knock off for their own enjoyment, meaning random pens and markers on the floor in the messy office.

Luckily for me, Pinterest and Aunt Peaches has solved this problem! Just needed some toilet paper rolls, a shoe box and some fun paper and I was good to go!

Now all of my markers, pens and pencils are all in one place and organized! Amy loves marker box storage!

Filing Cabinet Makeover

Filing Cabinet Makeover

As you know, I love free furniture and my Mom was giving this filing cabinet away after her own furniture make overs.

I knew this was a fun makeover for the blog. All I needed was scrapbook paper and modge podge!

I am pretty happy with the results, although I think it needs a little more TLC to be perfect.

Paper Heart Frame

I know it is crazy to have two posts in one day… but I had posted a sneak peek on Friday and wanted to share the results!

I had paper hearts left over from our wedding as our adorable flower girl got caught up walking down the aisle she forgot to drop them… which is okay by me because now I can craft with them!

What you need to complete this project:

1 frame (any size)

1 bunch of paper hearts (folded or not) any colour

String

Staple Gun (I had a mini stapler and a hammer)

Ruler

Hole Punch

*I would suggest to make this project super cheap that you visit your local paint store and grab some paint swatches.

Attach hearts to string after hole punching them in any order and staple the string to the back of the frame. Voila!

*If you like the idea of no hole punch, you can glue the hearts to the string.

The original idea came from Pinterest of course and this blog: www.makinghomebase.com/valentines-day-floating-heart-wall-art/

Happy Crafting!

Threading a Sewing Machine

Since learning to use my Mom’s machine, my husband has been bugging me to use the machine he bought me years ago. He even suggested I post a tutorial on how to use it, which will help not only me remember how to do it but hopefully others!

I attempted to thread everything on my own but I needed to call in the big guns, my Mom! We had to video chat so that she could see what I was talking about rather than me describing “this thingy” or “the silver do-hicky.” It wasn’t perfect and I discovered that sometimes you need to put the machine together like a puzzle but we did it!

Threading the Sewing Machine

Not only did we thread the machine but I also made a mini Valentine Cat Toy!

First Project on New Sewing Machine

I think that Orange (my model for today) likes it!
