 Funny now days how many girls wanna be treated like a princess even though they dress like a prostitute, curse more than a sailor and act so inappropriate going around.

Just remember that to be treated like princess it’s no easy as just sitting there and just demand and expect to be treated like one. You have to work for the tittle.

First, you must know that you have to be lady- like 24-7.

Second, have good manners and be classy, it doesn’t matter where or who you with you always have to bring the best out of you. 

 Treat yourself with respect so others would learn to respect you. There’s still good men out there that are true gentlemen but it takes a real woman to stand up and become a true lady. So if you wanna wear the crown you must earn the crown!!

DIY Embroidery Hoop Picture Frames

Tags

I came across a bunch of assorted sizes of embroidery hoops at a yard sale. They were super cheap, so I added a bunch of them to my craft stash. I’ve seen ideas where pretty fabrics are used with the hoops to make wall art. I thought it would be really fun to use Photo Fabric to make a personalized wall art display.

Here are the materials you’ll need

  • embroidery hoops in assorted sizes (I used a 7″, 6″, 5″, 4″ and 3″ hoop)
  • spray paint in your favorite color(s)
  • PhotoFabric
  • image files of pictures you’d like to frame.
  • common crafting supplies: scissors, pencil, double-sided tape, kraft paper

 Here is how you make it:

1. Lay down a piece of kraft paper that is large enough to accommodate all of your hoops. Arrange the hoops so you have a pleasing design. Use a pencil to trace the outside of each hoop onto the kraft paper. Mark a dot on the inside of each cirlce, at the top, where the nail will be. This step will help with hanging the hoops once they are completed.

2. Take the hoops apart. Set up in a well ventilated area to spray paint (I worked outside). You only need to spray paint the outside rings since the inside rings will not be seen. Apply several light coats of spray paint, allowing dry time between each coat, until your rings are completely covered.

3. Select photos and edit the sizes in your photo editing program so they will fit inside their respective hoops. Print the photos onto the PhotoFabric and let dry. Peel the paper backing off the fabric. (Manufacturer directions say to rinse the fabric and then lay flat to dry, but I skipped this step.)

4. Pinch your fabric between the rings of the hoop and tighten the screw to hold the fabric taut.

5. Turn the hoop over and trim the excess fabric. Leave enough fabric to tuck under and adhere to the inside of the ring.

6. Apply a double-sided tape to the inside of the ring. Press the fabric down onto tape to hold in place.

7. Repeat process for all of the hoops.

8. Tape the kraft paper guide from step 1 to the wall where you would like your embroidery hoops to be displayed. Use a hammer and a nail to make a hole in the wall where each hoop will hang. Make the hole at each dot you marked on the paper. Remove the paper once all the holes are made.

9. Hang all your completed hoops and enjoy!

DIY : WASHI TAPE NOTEBOOK

Ever since I was in college, I’ve always kept some sort of notebook with me to write down “to do” things from day to day. So for the latest notebook, I purchased one of these simple Mead notebooks and got some new Lotta Jansdotter washi tape (don’t you just love the yellow one?) and decorated a new notebook for myself!
Photobucket
On the inside, I always try to make a calendar for the upcoming months.. Someone saw this one time and said I was ocd! But I just try to be organized!
Photobucket
I used some of the decals I designed (that I had at the craft show) and put one on the front and one on the inside. I am really loving these decals :)
Photobucket
That’s it! A very simple + quick afternoon project. If you’re overwhelmed or just need to get a little more organized, I totally recommend keeping a notebook with you. I know there are lots of organization/productivity apps on smart phones now and days but there is something awesome about writing things down the good old fashion way ;)

DIY Christmas Craft Project: Make a Holiday Hankie Wreath that won’t Damage Family Heirlooms

Tags

I have a few handkerchiefs that I’ve collected over the years, but I never know what to do with them because I feel like they are kind of hard to display. So for Christmas this year, I’ve decided to show off a couple of my favorite hankies in a holiday diy wreath project that is just too easy not to replicate in your own home. The best part is, none of your family heirlooms or your prized fabrics will be damaged in the process – because once the season is over your can simply remove the materials and they are basically as good as new. Interested? Good…

This is what you need to make your own holiday hankie wreath:

  • Styrofoam wreath
  • old and antique hankies
  • straight pins
  • ribbon (optional) *NO GLUE REQUIRED. How great is that?

This is how you make it:

1. Grab your materials and take a cozy seat by the fireplace. You can do this project pretty much anywhere because there is no messy glue or tedious sewing. 

2. Layout your pieces around your wreath to figure what patterns and colors would be best next to each other, etc.

3. Start with the hankie (or ribbon – I decided to use a little vintage ribbon to bring in another texture) that will be the undermost layer. Fold your first handkerchief in half to form a triangle (seems to work best that way).

4. Using a small straight pin, secure the tip of your hankie to the back of your styrofoam wreath and then begin wrapping it around and around.

5. Secure the other loose end to the wreath with another straight pin.

6. Move on to your next hankie and repeat steps 4 and 5 until the entire wreath has been covered.

7. Create a small bow using some extra ribbon or an additional hankie and attach with another straight pin and you are all set.

**Once the holidays have come to an end, you can easily remove the pins, unwrap your hankies, and put them back in your drawers for safe keeping. No damage and you can use them again next year.

Here’s a step by step in pictures…

 

 

 

 


And here’s the finished wreath….

 

 

 

DIY Festive Felt Gift Card Envelope

Tags

My favorite part about the holidays is giving gifts, but my second favorite part is wrapping them! I thought it would be fun to share with you today an easy and quick DIY for a felt gift card envelope. Gift cards can be a great simple gift, but making a unique little envelope to put them in can make them extra special.

 

 

Here are the materials you’ll need:

  • Felt! The brighter and more fun the colors, the better.
  • Sewing Supplies – Scissors, Embroidery Thread, Pins, Needle.
  • A Gift Card Envelope Template. Instead of going through the mathematics I used, I created a downloadable template just for you! Just click through the image below to save and print out your template, made to fit standard sized gift cards.
  • Your Gift Card.

 

Here’s how you make it:

1. Cut out your envelope using the template. Also cut out any details you would like to add, like a stamp or an address tag. Make it unique!

2. Stitch details onto the front of the envelope. It is much easier to stitch when the envelope isn’t sewn together yet. Use bright thread and have fun creating special details!

3. Stitch together the back of the envelope. Using your fingers, fold along the edges, pressing hard to create a good crease. Then pin together the bottom and side flaps, and stitch them together. I used a straight stitch, but a different decorative stitch could be fun too!

4. Insert your gift card and give it away!

Now look at how simple that was! This project can easily be made in fifteen minutes, just one more quick trick in your gift giving arsenal. Good luck with your crafting, and Happy Holidays friends!
