P is for Pillow

Had me some fun making scrabble pillows as a wedding gift for my niece!
It's fun getting back into sewing. I've been away from it for ages.

I made these pillows with an envelope style back for easy care.
I stenciled the lettering with fabric paint after making the stencils with freezer paper.

I really appreciate all the bloggers out there who share their projects and know-how.
It makes this gal look like she can do anything!

Ideas, Projects, and Info...Oh My

I have a variety of ideas.
I think of so many projects.
I collect lots of info.

Oh to keep it all straight?
I use a binder system. It's not perfect, but it sure helps.

It all started a couple of years ago when I brought home boxes 
and more boxes of magazines from an auction.
They were all the best in decorating, gardening, and crafting magazines.
I enjoyed looking through them over and over again, but they were taking up too much needed space.

The binder system to the rescue. 
It's my way to keep what I like all organized in a nice and tidy method, somewhat.
I have a binder for decorating and one for gardening.
I just started one for Christmas. 

It holds it all. I needed one. I don't know about you, but every year there is some confusion as to how many good strings of lights we have, where is that 'special' eggnog recipe, and what were those great ideas I came across the previous year that I wanted to do this year. more of that.

Oh, and Pinterest! Don't get me started. I'm a lovin' it. Very inspirational, indeed! And so much fun.
It's a type of an online binder which you can put ideas you find into categories.
You can check out my pins HERE. I've even found where others have pinned pictures from this old blog.
So fun to inspire each other. 

I hope you each have a good old time this weekend.
I'll probably be browsing my binders.
