Skittles Inspired Ruffle Curtain Valance on A Vision to Remember

I love ruffle valances. They are cute and have a huge impact on a room. This on that I just completed is a +Skittles inspired valance.  Can't you taste the rainbow?

Instead I made the 1 panel and I made it a couple inches wider than the window.  This particular curtain is for a customer so it was made for their window.  

If it was for my window I would have made it a couple inches wider.  I prefer over sized valances.  
If you would like to purchase your own valance you can go to my Etsy Shop A Vision to Remember

Spray Painted Mirrors from Family Dollar for Instant Wow


I have been in desperate need of color in my living room.  I was tired of the blah brown with warm orange.  No spark, no brightness, no color.  Just blah blending into blah.

So when I found 3 little black plastic mirrors +Family Dollar I knew I was in luck.

A little turquoise, a little gray, and a little brighter orange definitely to the rescue.

I know these aren't the original frames, but they are very similar.  Just to give you an idea.

To paint over the mirror part I used painters tape and taped down the brown kraft paper onto the mirror.  It worked great!

The only hard part to spray painting these mirrors was getting into all the nooks and crannies, but after a little patience and several layers I finally got it all covered.

Twin Size Ruffle Flower Rag Quilt in Hot Pink, Turquoise, Purple, and Lime Green

This last week I was able to make this gorgeous rag quilt for a customer. I am absolutely in love with it.

Here is the picture of before the quilt was clipped to make all the seams ragged and fluffy:

The Importance of Making Memories with the Ones You Love

The other day when I was watching the show Scorpion on NBC, I was struck by what one of the characters said. "Make as many memories as you can because at the end of the day you never know which ones you will keep." So go out, make a memory with the ones you love.

How to Make Giant Lollipops with Balloons

For a party I needed to make large giant lollipops for decoration. I needed something that didn't cost very much, but would make a large impact for very little money. Enter the Giant Lollipops made from balloons, dowels, and clear plastic wrap (cellophane)

How to make large lollipops using dowel, cellophane, dowels, and ribbon.  Easy Peasy Tutorial

All I did was take balloons.  Blew them up. 

Then stapled the end of the balloon to painted dowels.

 Then I took large square pieces of cellophane and wrapped them around the balloon and tied with a pretty ribbon.

Easy Peasy!  Right?

Colorblocked Lime Green and Yellow Ruffle Curtain

I had a special request to make a custom colorblocked curtain with lime green and white ruffles. I was excited to do this curtain. I am always looking for a new challenge!

Colorblocked Lime Green and Yellow Ruffle Curtain

I love the way that it turned out.  The colorblocked lime green section is about in the middle of the curtain.  It also includes a 2 inch rod pocket. 

Isn't it darling.

To purchase your own colorblocked curtain please visit my Etsy Shop.  

I can also customize the colors if you would like. 

For example, I have done a yellow and white:

Or a Gray and Hot Pink one:
