Stencils are a great way to add a personal detail to all kinds of things: walls, headboards, clothes, mugs, and more!

First, I’ll show you how to do it by hand. Then, I’ll share how to make one using an electronic cutting machine. Tomorrow I will give you a project to try your new stencil out on!!

Project: How To Turn Your T-Shirt In To A Pillow
The other day, I caught the Husband trying to throw out an old t-shirt of his. It got a small bleach stain on it which is pretty much the end of an article of clothing. Still, I rescued it from garbage can heaven and gave it two new reasons to live! Half the shirt I used to make t-shirt yarn, while the other half was used to make a pillow! My sister also loves the same silly anime things that Husband does (sorry, I just don’t see the appeal!), so I knew she’d love this pillow for her bed. It was very easy and I’m thinking of making a few pillows for my bed now too, using shrunken Woot tees and old band shirts! Continue reading How To Turn Your T-Shirt In To A Pillow
My Etsy Picks: Home Decor
This week was a busy one so far, and it’s only Tuesday! Last Wednesday, the Husband and I met with a realty guy to maybe think about possibly starting to possibly look at houses to buy. By Sunday we had two houses to go look at, and we saw three more today… in a crazy scary thunderstorm, might I add! It’s all moving much quicker than I anticipated (seriously, thinking of putting an offer in on a house in under a week makes me freak out!), but I love seeing the houses- and seeing how they are decorated! No matter when we move (or to where!), I know I’ll need some new wonderful decorations for the house! Continue reading My Etsy Picks: Home Decor
