Last week we had a family photoshoot with Angela Richardson from AMR Photography. She was amazing and helped me prepare for the shoot in every way, from make-up suggestions to wardrobe consultation. We decided on a yellow, gray and blue color palette including this little dress for Quinn. It was pretty on it’;s own but since it was store-bought, I felt it needed a handmade touch.Loveunique wedding gifts couple, love, love these shots

Coincidentally, I was also itching to play with my new Brother Sewing &; Embroidery Machine, so I took the opportunity to update the DIY Monogrammed Hair Clip.

In the end it was a cold, windy and muddy morning (here is Quinn behind the scenes in a cozy blanket) so she wore a gorgeous little denim jacket belonging to the photographers own little girl. The clip didn’;t show in many of the shots but since Quinn will be wearing this dress for Easter, it will make a second appearance! Read more to learn how to make this Monogrammed Clip.1. First I placed stabilizer and some bright yellow wool felt in my embroidery hoop.

2. Then I created the monogram art on-screen. An “;A”; and a “;Q”; with a fancy border.

3. I threaded my machine with some gorgeous Pacesetter Embroidery Thread. And let the machine work it’;s magic. You can also hand-embroider, of course.

4. Trim the felt (&; stabilizer) into a circle, using the border as a guide.

5. Cut a second circle the same size for the back.

6. Attach your clip or pin to the back. Cut a slit like I did below, hot glue or sew in place.

7. Collect your trims. I used a strip of silver tulle 2″;x12″; and a few spotted feathers.

8. Gather the tulle into a layered bunch.

9. Sew back n forth along bottom edge. Use thread that matches your clip for goodness sake.

10. Arrange your feathers or other fun trim and sandwich in-between felt layers.

11. Sew arrangement securely to back layer of felt. You could also hot glue. Hot glue hurts so much.

12. Add top layer and sew around entire edge directly over decorative border stitching.

13. Trim back layer of felt and stabilizer so it doesn’;t show from front.And that’;s it! Doesn’;t it add a unique touch to the dress? How do you feel about monograms? People seem to either love ’;em or hate ’;em. I’;m on the fence in general but this one really works for me. What do you think? Your comment could win you the PDF Art Caddy Tote from Gingercake.

The kitchen is the hub of the home. No doubt you have heard this said a thousand times before by T.V. designers, home magazines and sales people- but not without good reason. The kitchen is the place where family memories are made. It is where you helped your children complete their first work of art, and where you later displayed it on the fridge door. It is where you sat down for coffee with your visiting sister when she announced her engagement. So it is really not surprising that a beautiful, well equipped kitchen is frequently cited as the room that sells a home. It has always been the natural meeting point for the family.

Measuring for curtains is a simple task, but only if you know how. Our step by step guide will show you how to get all the appropriate measurements correctly. We have also included tips, advice and things to consider when you measure for curtains. Measuring for curtains can be confusing if you've never done it before. However, all you need is a measuring tape and a calculator to figure out the right curtain length and width. Figure out some basic measurements as a starting point and then add or subtract depending on your specific needs. When you're done, you can custom order the right curtains for your windows. Leaving your windows naked and bare means you’re missing out on a big interior design opportunity. Beautiful window treatments provide privacy, filter sunlight, and add warmth while bringing style to your home. Before you can choose the perfect drapes for your space, it’s vital to get the correct window and curtain measurements.

This week I got to play around with the new Mod Melts by Mod Podge.? A couple of weeks ago, I received a box full of Mod Melts goodies and was asked to share my completed projects with you!
