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 eWillow.com, 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...]
