Little Girls Make Up Box

*Project by Charlene @ eWillow for the Organization challenge of Season 10* Up-cycle a balsa-wood box to organize all of the pretend make-up that your little girl loves so much! Add a mirror and your little darling will feel like the grown-up princess that she is pretending to be. I'm Charlene from, and I'm excited to share this organization idea with you. For more photos and details, visit my blog "Paper Clips" … [Continue reading...]

Bathroom Hooks

*Project by Mandy @ SugarBee Crafts for the Organization challenge of Season 10* Our hall bathroom - aka the kids bathroom, aka the elephant bathroom (see "lovely" wallpaper) - used to be a nightmare.  The towel rack was coming out of the wall and towels were piled on the floor - even if the towel rack were functioning, kids can't use those!  Looping a towel over and through just isn't one of their skill sets.  There is one drawer in … [Continue reading...]

Mod Sunburst Mirror

*Project by Amelia @ The Night Garden for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic challenge of season 14* When I first saw the theme for this week back in December, I knew right away what I wanted to make. Metallic? Check. Shine? Check. Glitter? . . . well, I left out the glitter, but I think I used enough metal to make up for it (and like my husband's always saying about his motorcycle, "It's not glitter; it's metal-flake"). My choice was obvious: A … [Continue reading...]

Gold Leaf Table

*Project by Camille @ Sugar Baby Boutique for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic project  of season 14* I was really excited for this weeks theme. But, I ran out of time due to my chronic procrastination to do the project I've been planning for months so I switched my thoughts around to this little lonely coffee table that had been begging for a makeover. I started out with DIY chalk paint, which was fantastic. I did no sanding or priming and I'm pretty … [Continue reading...]

Magnetic Travel Games

*Project by Amber @ Mule ‘n Nag Crafts for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic challenge of season 14* So glad I survived until this week because this is the week I've been excited for.  This is a project I've had in the back of my head for a while and the best part is FINALLY getting it done! My kids enjoy being entertained in the car.  We have a few things, including a DVD player, but we don't always like to get THAT out.  Since they can't stretch … [Continue reading...]

Sparkling Mini Album

*Project by Christy @ Inklings & Yarns for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic challenge of season 15* While I've never met a craft I didn't like, my first and true love is papercrafting. There's just nothing more satisfying than putting the last touch on a scrapbook layout or crafting the perfect card for an occasion. So I couldn't let this competition go by without breaking out my stamps, dies, markers, and--oh yes--glitter. When I saw … [Continue reading...]

Illuminated Valentine Canvas

*Project by Kim @ Maiden D’Shade for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic challenge of season 14* This weeks category is perfect for Valentine's Day! I love to make sparkly and shiny things. So I made an illuminated canvas! I bought a big square canvas. I designed what I wanted on the computer using this font and this font. I printed it out tiled and then taped it together. I traced it on the canvas using back lighting. I painted on my design with … [Continue reading...]

Glitter Envelope Clutch

*Project by Valerie @ Occasionally Crafty for the Glitter/Shine/Metallic project of season 14* Thanks again for your votes last week!  This is a really fun week and I'm excited to show you my project! I'll have to admit- I'm not a girly girl.  So glitter, shine, and all aren't exactly my forte.  I wanted something I would really use, with just a touch of extra glitz and glamour.  So, I whipped up this Glitter Envelope Clutch for Mom's Night … [Continue reading...]
