Butterfly Patchwork Valentine Pillows

Are you ready for Valentine's day?  These patchwork butterflies have been  sitting around in my stash waiting to be turned into something beautiful for quite awhile.  I pulled them out when I was  re-organizing and made up my mind to finally put them to some use! ( My first intentions were to make a quilt with them.. but that never worked out.)  So -- here they are.  All sewed up and ready for Valentine's Day!

Finished Craft Room/Bedroom reveal (Part II)

We have completed  my Craft/Bedroom make over!  I am really happy with the results.  I tried to be as cheap  economical as possible by purchasing the wall hangings on clearance at Hobby Lobby, recovering a headboard I already had with this pretty red material, and re-doing a small lamp that I already had around the house. (I will share the  lamp re-do   on another post sometime).  My daughter came home for the weekend from college and she loves it!  We had a little laugh because it occured to us that the headboard looks a little like the inside of Count Dracula's coffin.  Lol.    I wanted to share a few more photos so you could see a couple of other things I added to.  Thanks for dropping in!

I got this old tv cabinet from a dear friend (Thanks, Tammy!).  Tracy helped me to remove the tv and wires.  I spray painted it black and now it makes a great storage place for Hannah's luggage when she comes home.
I found this wall art at Dollar Tree.  Seriously... one dollar!

Here's is a close up of Dracula's Coffin the headboard and some pillows I made to match.
Last, but not least, I finally got me a bodice!  I love it.  It came from Hobby Lobby.  It was on sale for $48.00 and I used a gift card I received from my MIL for Christmas to help purchase it.  I have been wanting one forever!

Thanks for visiting me.  Leave a comment so I will know you were here!

"Stampin up'" Noble Deer card

Now that I have my scrap/sewing room in order; I am enjoying making a few things.  I put together  this deer card for my nephew's birthday  this weekend.  I love this stamp set so much.  It's called "Noble Deer" made by Stampin Up.  Someone once told me; always make two of every card you do.  It's just as easy to make two, since you have the materials already out.  I am going to try to do this and hopefully build up my card inventory. 
Thanks for visiting.  See you again soon!
