DIY: dip dye

Currently dip dye is in. It’s trendy, it’s in all of the magazines. Yesterday, I got an email from my mom with a trendy dip dyed shirt. But nothing really made me want to go out and buy paint and a bucket until these. I am super loving the dip dye baskets and the super awesome table cloth. Home Depot here I come.

I want to make these, plain and simple. Once it happens, I’m sure I’ll be able to give a full DIY breakdown. But just on first glance, I’m seeing two embroidery hoops (different sizes to fit inside of each other), multiple colors of streams and a hot glue gun in my future. So pretty much, my future sounds awesome.

etsy find: knot & bow

There are days when you want something pretty to just appear on your doorstep, and then there are those other days. The days when you wished you owned a sewing machine and had every possible crafting item known to man-kind. At the immediate moment in my world, that has come out in the form of packaging. Then I found Knot & Bow on Etsy.   So for all those who love browsing through real weddings or sees awesome glitter twine on a design blog and wonders where they can get something like that, you’re welcome. the Knot and Bow shop can be found here:

must have monday: a valentine?

Dear Friends. Due to work insanity (read: a four day conference exhibit) I will be delayed in getting out fun, quirky valentines. I am leaning toward the above two. That being said, I would really like a valentine (I would settle for a someecard or a blog comment) to distract me as I get to work at 6:20 AM tomorrow. That would be sweet of you. xoxo, whitney P.S. So what is the best Valentine that you have ever received? More information on the above designs can be found on [1] Oh Happy Day and on [2] Mer Mag
