My craft room | office is coming along.  I wanted to share some office inspiration with you. White desk!  Barndoor!  Bits of teal, pink, orange, and gold!  Yaaasss!  I love everything about this.

DIY Painted Stools

I've had this one stool for years from Ikea.  The Bekvam Step Stool.
We moved and now I'm having a hard time reaching cabinets in the kitchen, master closet and craft room.  For the last two months, I would just carry the one stool from room to room.  Well, we took a quick trip to Ikea and I picked up two more.  Looking for the same stool to carry from room to room wasn't something I was too interested in. 

DIY Advent Calendar

Hi everyone, this is a post from last year that I'm absolutely still in love with.  DIY Advent Calendar.  Advent calendars are really simply the best.  It's a countdown to Christmas and kids get really excited.  I secretly get more excited than the kids. Growing up our kids received a simple treat each morning.  Think outside the box and insert bible verses or encouraging words, the ideas are endless.
This is so fun, you are going to love it.  It takes a little time, but you are going to be so happy with the results, I promise.  You only need a few things to get started, so let's go:

 - 24 Cotton Muslin Bags, measuring 3 X4 inches
 - Vinyl
 - Personal Cutting Machine
 - Acrylic Paint
 - Foam Brush

1.  Cut out numbers 1- 24  in vinyl using your favorite font using your cutting machine.
2.  Add each number to bag
3.  Paint bag using your acrylic paint
4.  Remove vinyl
5.  Let completely dry
6.  Hang

This last step is completely optional.  I used a 16 X 20-inch frame, removed the glass and added a piece of MDF then added gold hooks to hang the bags.  You could also display your bags using clothespins to hang your bags from ribbon or twine.  Hang on a mantle or from a kitchen island.  Have fun with this project.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy this project as much as I do.  Leave a comment letting me know what colors you decided to paint your bags and what surprises did you insert into the bags.

Easy DIY Holiday Treat Boxes

I think most of us get so overwhelmed with the holidays, holiday lists, parties, and shopping; and I'm always looking for inexpensive gifts to hand out to my kid's teachers and friends.  I created these boxes with time management in mind.  Plus they are super cute, how could you not make these.
You could easily make up 10 or 20, and people would love them.  These boxes could be given at classroom parties, teachers, school administrators and more.  If you wanted to give a bit more, you could easily tie a gift card to the box.
I’m so excited to share this project with you. It's really simple.  I used crafting supplies I had here in my studio.
Let's get started:
- clear boxes, these can be purchased at Michael's and also online
- holiday cut outs, ours have been cut using Cricut Designer Space
- Adhesive
- candy of your choice
  1. Simply use holiday cut outs and apply to clear box
  2. Pour candy into box
  3. Add embellishments
Of course, you could use anything to dress up your boxes, if you are interested in the cut outs we used from Cricut, they can be found by searching Belt and the Reindeer can be found by searching ugly sweater project.  Simple reduce size of images to the size needed to fit your boxes.
