Hobby Humpday-Baked Good Birthday

The kids are invited to a pool party on Thursday for a little girl in Piper Ann’s class.

I made this apron for her with a felt cupcake on it.



I love the sprinkles.


It will keep her clean while serving these. If you scroll down to the end of that post, the carrots are mine!

Hobby Humpday- New-Old Medicine Cabinet


I got this medicine cabinet from Goodwill for $9. I decided that it would be really cool decoupaged in some great paper.


My biggest challenge was creating a template for the doors.


I took lipstick and drew around the edges of the doors.


I then put it on a piece of paper and rubbed it along the edges.


The lipstick was transferred to the paper. Then I just cut it out!


Here’s the finished product.




Now I just have to redecorate my whole bathroom around the new cabinet. I’ll keep you updated on that!

Play along!

Hobby Hump Day

I’ve done some decoupaging before.

On a recent visit to Artmart here in St. Louis, I came across some wonderful papers and came up with two new decoupaging projects.

The first one is this table I had in my living room.

I’ve actually always hated this table, because its so non descript. However, its just always appeared in some room, because of its usefulness.









I saw this orange paper online and was so excited when I found it at Artmart.

After I decoupaged it I sprayed it with some satin polyurethane to give it a good seal.

I’ve been wanting to try out this tutorial for a while now.

For my cousins daughter’s birthday I thought I’d try it out.







I think it turned out pretty well. I love the interior curtain!

You might remember “The Boy.”

Well I finally finished “The Girl” and they’re both framed and hung. I love the way they turned out.

The pictures don’t do them justice, because the lighting isn’t great.

Hobby Hump Day/WFMW-Doggie Backsplash

We have a dog with jowls which means he splatters water everywhere when he drinks. To save my walls I created a “doggie backsplash.”

dscn0862I took a ready made canvas from another project gone awry and stapled oilcloth around it. Its completely wipeable and prevents sludge from building up on the walls.

Hobby Humpday & Giveaway

I had previously done a Works for Me Wednesday post about some silly ribbon I tied around Piper Ann’s doorknob to hold her hairclips.
I was definitely not satisfied with the way that looked, so I came up with this instead.

There are ribbons that hold the clips and a loop at the end to hold headbands or ponytail holders.
I made a couple of extras in different colors for my etsy store.
I also made this one to giveaway to one of my lucky readers…

Please leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite thing about spring is. I will draw a winner on Friday at 1 pm.
Also if you want to play along, leave me a comment with a link to your post.

For now, leave a comment with a link to your HHD.
