    Easter Bunny Burlap Banner

Taking your fabric, make…

    The Simplest DIY of EVER!

    Ceiling Medallion DIY 3 simple steps

    Anybody that creates feels a sense of satisfaction!  Standing in the kitchen and creating a new dish is satisfaction for some. Singing or playing an instrument may bring someone else a sense of fulfillment.  For me…its creating art!  When I say this is the easiest DIY ever, I mean it.  People have PIN’ed this hundreds of times!  (Check out the image at the end to PIN to your own boards!) Art covers a whole realm of things and I’m going to be the first to tell you that I will never be a Picasso or Michelangelo.  Honestly, I’m humbled everyday that people ask me to create for them because the…
