It's a Wrap

Ohhhh how fun is this Wrap Journal!  I need a spot to organize my thoughts and ideas... design wise.  I created this Wrap so that it's small enough to fit in my purse if I need.  This journal has spots to add pages so go big!


A great place to add organize my ideas.

A little spot to tuck inspiration.

Some Crackle and Create!

Ohhhhh A Vintage Girl has some AHHHH-MAZING Newsprint that wraps my Wrap!

I have stuffed 25 pages in this wee Wrap!

Be Brave!

Sometimes we get so full of ideas we need somewhere to put them all!  I have been wanting to make on of these journals for awhile.  Finally, I am home long enough to create!

Adventures with Yarn

To say working with yarn is way out of my comfort zone is a huge understatement.  In fact, you may be wondering where the mixed media paints are!

Skein is a ball of yarn.  Check... I used 6 for this throw at 32 yards each.  I could have used less if I didn't make a tighter loop.  Which I have learned... I can make the loops loose.  Tension is everything.

Hand knitting... oh ya it's a things and I went for it.  No tools.

Yarn sheds and boy did my yarn shed.  If I believed the reviews of almost every brand of yarn I looked at I would not have got any at all.  I will share a video I used to prep my material befo…

DIY Rustic Fountain

Oh my it's been awhile since I have been here.  Life happens and I have been living it.  So nice to break out my inky things and this AMAZING DecoArt stencil.  I really love stencils and the bigger the better.  After years of wanting to update my deck for that "outdoor living" vibe this weekend we finally started to pull our vision together.
This is my easy DIY Rustic Fountain...


I gatheredDecoArt Paint, stencil and Dynasty Stencil brush.  Just tape and load ink!

I love this Americana Decor Stencil, Cafe ParisStencil... no like I really love it!  

I encourage you to peek...  this literally took 2 min.

I attached a small bucket to my old pump.

Adding the letters to this galvanized tub is quick and easy.  It completely changes the look.  This DIY Rustic Fountain cost me $70 with the pump and tubing consuming $50 of the cost.
BONUS...
Since that was so quick and easy I decided to add a little detail to my new lanterns.  These little lanterns I picked up on clearance for $7…
