I love my Ruffled Burlap Pennant, but wanted to make something kind of Fall-ish and festive for this season.

I bought some cotton material in orange and yellow and then used some left over canvas from my Halloween Pennant Pillows for the fabric. Supplies: Orange, yellow and white fabric … [Read more...]

I think Mod Podge might be the reason that I started blogging – LOL. I was on a mod podge kick and needed a place to keep my ideas.

In honor of one of my favorite crafting mediums, I came up with a little project — my … [Read more...]
