Feature Friday!

Pink Stitches did one of my absolute favorite before and after projects! She turned this drab, old sewing container


into this!


Of course, anyone who uses the color pink and cute little containers to organize is a woman after my own heart. And look! Someone else who has a post-it obsession!


This girl has some talents when it comes to fabric, too! Look at these little cuties! I love them. Not only can she make these, but she makes her own textiles. We’re talking fabric here, people. Score! Please go visit her. She’s such a kind commenter, and she’s got such a cute blog!


Grace (another great name I did NOT get) at One Craft Girl’s Corner is a work-a-holic. Seriously. She never stops. Take a look at this NO SEW clutch she made.


Okay. Hold the phone. She may not appreciate that I chose this picture to post, but this is my most favorite cake EVER. I’ve never even eaten it, but I can just tell. There’s even Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in it. Hello!


I love this next project. It’s made out of bandanas. How easy is that? AND how adorable! I told you—workaholic. Go say hello, and you’ll leave with a “to do” list a mile long!


Kate at My Kids Eat off the Floor (love that title) sent me this park bench makeover, and I fell in love. It’s like the sun was cooperating with her!

mykids2 What’s even better? The “out of this world” pillows she sewed to go with it. Talent, I tell ya.


Of course, just ‘cause we loooove before and afters, this one will NOT disappoint…



How are these ladies so creative?? Come on!! Well, go say hello. Anyone who makes their kids eat off the floor could use some encouragement, don’t ya think? :)

You have become my favorite blog. I check you daily to see what new inspiration you have posted. In fact, I have put more than one of your posts on my FB page, on my private board for Christian Moms, and on the very large and public MOPS board. Yeah, I never share blogs like that.

Janene said...

These are such awesome makeovers...not my style, since I am into primitives...but something to keep in mind for future references.
Thank you for highlighting these very talented people!

Wow!! I have got to make one of those stoves. This one is a little easier, I think, for those of us who are slightly impaired when it comes to saws... LOL!! Great post!! Thanks for showing me who I might be missing out on!! :)

First, the new container is just divine. Pink and white, it doesn't get any better than that. What imagination. So cute!

The clutch is beautiful. Love the colors.

The little kitchen is really cute and sweet. Who thinks of this stuff!

The cake! The dress! The stove!!! Amazing. I'll make you that cake for your birthday.

Thanks for the compliment! I think you are hot too - if you were ugly we couldn't be friends. I don't hang out with ugly people. ;)

I love every one of those makeovers!
I'm from Portugal but I've lived in the USA a few years ago (because of work) and I miss it so much...
I love your blog and come here almost every day, to seek inspitarion to remodel my house.
Keep up the goodwork!

There is phenomenal talent out there. And most of those people with it, I'm quite sure, have blogs that show their ingenuity. Thanks for steering us their way!

Connie said...

I love how you transformed the sewing box. Love it ! I am cleaning out my room now and it might be fun to do something like this for all the small clutter.
Thanks for the idea.
Would you mind if I put you on my blogger's list ? Your ideas are too good to miss.
Have a nice weekend!
