I have been taken over by an idea {and I want to take you with me}!

May 16, 2012

I feel guilty.

I have been a neglectful blogger, and for that I am deeply sorry.

My brain has been plagued by an idea.  A big, awesome idea.  An idea so exciting {to me at least}, that my creative moments each day have been sucked into building this idea into something real instead of crafty projects.

It will be a bit longer before I can share all the fun with you all, but I felt that I had to pop on here and let you know that I am still alive, still brilliant and still crafty.

I am looking for a few friends to help take this idea where I want it to go.

If you are interested, I'd love to talk it out with you.

I need one {or two} of each of the following:

Brilliant Baker,

Showy Seamstress,
Creator of Profound Printables.

If you fall into one of these crafty categories and are interested in hearing more, please e-mail me!

DIY Lampshade Cover {Brainstorming Session}

May 2, 2012

Okay ladies, I need your help.

I have a seriously outdated chandelier in my dining room.  It is bringing me down!

I found a nice big, white drum shade at Cost Plus World Market on clearance for $15.  It was exactly what I had been looking everywhere for - and on sale!

Now that I am done planning Maia's birthday {HERE} I can focus on my coat closet revamp {HERE} and making this plain shade not so plain.

My thought is to stencil something on some plain white fabric {maybe linen?} and wrap this guy in it.  The colors I plan on using for the stenciling are peacock blue and a light, fresh green.

I will be painting the chandelier white and removing the frosted glass light covers and putting my pretty new shade up there around the whole shabang.

My dilemma lies in the stencil choice.

I was perusing Cutting Edge Stencils and narrowed it down to these two:

I haven't seen the paisley stencil anywhere before and it is darling.

The zinnia is a big hit a lot of places and sometimes tried and true is the way to go.

I need your thoughts!  I won't keep them... just want to borrow them for a moment.
