Pillow Refresher

Thanks to Momstastic and Amazon/hubbylove for a sewing machine, I discovered the beauty of sewing! Here is my first real project...

Pillow before:

After several spelunking trips (and returns with nothing but a fuzz covered face) by the Curbster, this couch has been retired. But we saved the pillows just in case. Free pillow!

And, ta daaaa! After the update!

Curby felt photogenic today. I think our living room is turning hippy.

Cake Stand and Cake!

Well, happy spring! Err...summer if you're my Minnesota family :)

For a year and a half I haven't been eating any refined sugars. I stick to honey as a sweetener so when I found this Yellow Coconut Cake with Cocoa Buttercream Frosting, I knew I had to try it. But you can't just make a thisismyfirstpieceofcakeinoverayearohmy! cake without making a big deal about it. So I decided to make a cake stand to go with it! You know, for photo's sake. So here it is! The stand cost about $4 and was inspired by Pixel Whisk!

Yum! Impressed!

T-shirt Necklace

So, with all of my time lately I have been feeling pretty crafty. I even bought a sewing machine. But I really like things simple! So here is my creation. It was inspired by Ninth and Bird. She has a wonderful tutorial!

It has been warming up in the valley lately! I felt kind of silly wearing it because it also resembles a scarf. But it looks cute with a t-shirt too. And somebody asked how I made it while I was out!
