funny pillow cases Guest Post- DIY Bulletin Board Alternative customized gifts for mom

BEFORE:AFTER:Julia at I Steal Good Ideas cooked up this alternative to a traditional bulletin board from a flea market frame and some mod podge, and she’;s going to show you how to make one too. Here’;s the scoop from Julia herself:

I’;m a certified idea thief. If I see something I like but know I could make it and get something I LOVE, then the rip off is on. So it goes with this DIY project. My home office is on my sun porch and while I needed a bulletin board to keep up with all of the birth announcements, wedding invitesfunny pillow cases, photos and general merriment that arrives in the mail, I didn’;t want one that would block the view or the light. When I saw a chicken-themed note-holder frame on Wisteria, I knew I could make a more elegant version that would be perfect for my cozier-by-the-day home office. With a flea market frame, some spray paint, floral wire, and tacks from a home supply store, it came together in no time flat. But the coupe de grace is the custom decoupaged mini clothespins made especially to fit the look of my new creation. Yes, I said decoupage. I honestly can’;t believe I decoupaged either …; but I really enjoyed it and I think the Wisteria rip-off was a success. I hope you think so too!

Hey friends! Today I am doing something a little bit different because I've gotten a lot of questions about cutting machines lately. I'm going to give you my 100% unbiased review of Silhouette vs. Cricut cutting machines. Now, I always share my honest opinions even in sponsored posts, but to eliminate ANY DOUBT, I have chosen to write this post as an unsponsored post. Neither company is compensating me in any way to write this post, nor would I want them to.I want everyone to be able to read this completely unbiased post and decide which cutting machine is best for them, because the answer may not be the same for everyone!

I travel a lot with young teens and always worry about them losing their valuables, particularly their allimportant mobilephones. I developed this design after seeing a similar idea at a market in Europe. The zipper is positioned on the front of the bag rather than around the outside, and the straps are stitched into tabs that easily fold towards the front or the back of the bag resulting in a bag that is comfortably worn either way.

Lucky for us, there are tons of resources on the web to help new moms find answers to questions, save time and money, reconnect with the world around us, and have a little bit of fun (dispelling the myth that new moms are not able to have fun).? The only problem is that with the magnitude of sites to sort through, it may seem a bit overwhelming to find ones that are most helpful.? Below, we’ve listed some of our favorite sites, and a little information on them to help you decide if it’s something you might find useful.?
