It's that time of year again! I've been busy blowing glass for a number of art shows and craft fairs I've been participating in. I always like to update my etsy shop with some new hand-blown glass pumpkins and ornaments. You can visit my store here. \
I'm so excited to finally share a special project I've been working on. I designed a baby book template with @Shutterfly There's color options for boys or girls, the style is called Noah's Ark. It's loosely based after Hello World, but I made some changes to keep it simple & modern with a few cute animals and other images. I can't wait to create my own book for my daughter and share it here. You can check it out and make you own book at Shutterfly now :)
This month I was invited to be featured as the guest DT at Studio Calico. It was very inspiring to use the Walden Scrapbook Kit & Project Life kit. Here are a few projects I created for Studio Calico and you can see more at my gallery there.

I wanted to share this layout I created using my Sprinkled with Love collection from Websters Pages. I used the lightbulb paperclips on twine to make it look like they are hanging. You can get the collection at your favorite LSS, Websters Pages and also 2 Peas.
Idecided to make a pinata for my daughter's birthday. I followed these instructions from this OhHappyDay tutorial, but made a few minor changes. I used washi tape to hold it together. To make the scallops even I created a cardboard template and traced it with a pencil. I also used a glue runner to adhere the tissue paper. I was afraid the Elmer's glue would be too messy with 2 littles running around. It turned out great, and held up perfect during the party and broke when the last kid hit it. It was definetly a labor of love, but it won't stop me from making one again in the future.
Recently Cost Plus World Market asked me to share some DIY curtain ideas with you. Since I love World Market, I said yes. Plus I learned a few new tips about curtains which hopefully will be handy in the future.
