Laundry Closet Revamp

A couple of weeks ago the washing machine decided to take its last spin... So, it was time to purchase a new one.  Once the new one arrived, along with the new dryer, it was evident it was also time for a new curtain to hide those ugly hoses and plugs. 

Here are some before pics, with the new washer and dryer, and old curtains (see those ugly hoses, and plugs showing under the curtains):

I also decided to change out the panel hiding all my junk to match the material I bought to make the new curtain.  I changed out a couple of the decorations that were in there as well. 

I wanted to add another sign, and went to Pinterest for some inspiration.  Once I choose a saying, I typed it out and printed on some scrapbook paper, and then framed it. 

I added some ribbon to the store bought panel for a little embellishment.  Baby is helping out, or should I say supervising the project....  I sewed a simple curtain, added a ruffle at the bottom, and trimmed it out with some coordinating ribbon.

The finished product..

A friend gave me that cute Lenox, Butler's Pantry Sugar Bowl, and I decided to incorporate it in the project.  I thought it would be perfect to collect loose change left in pockets, or tips as I call them. 

I am linking up with Between Naps on the Porch.  Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project. Have a great week.

Cute Iron On

Happy Sunday!! It was a beautiful weekend here in Texas!! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. 

When I was looking for a patch to cover up the initials on my hoodie, I came across this cute heart at Hobby Lobby.  I also used my 40% off coupon which put it at just a few dollars. 

I thought is was so colorful, pretty, and it would perfect to put on a tank.  I went and purchased a couple of tanks at Target, but just wasn't sure which color I wanted to go with.....

I ended up going with the pink one, I thought is would be the most versatile of the two. It was a simple process to iron it on, and only took a few minutes.  I am very pleased with it. 

It will be perfect to wear with a light jacket now, and shorts in the summer.

Hoodie Redo..

Hoodie Redo..
Hello there, and welcome!! I have not posted to my little blog in a few years, and basically just abandoned it.  I always thought it was so much fun, but life just sort of got in the way.  I really have wanted to start it back up since it is such a great way to share your life, creativity, and projects with your family and friends. 

For my first post back, I would like to share a gift that just didn’t work out to give.  I purchased a hoodie that I had monogrammed with a friend’s initials to give as a Christmas gift.  
It was really cute, but long story short, the initials were not monogrammed in the correct order.  We ended up having to purchase another hoodie to get her initials monogrammed in the right order.  So, I had this extra hoodie with initials monogrammed that I obviously couldn’t take back, or use.  So, I looked for a patch to iron on top of the monogram, but I couldn’t find one that looked like it didn’t belong on a small child.  I did find an iron on transfer sheet in a chevron pattern at Hobby Lobby that I could use. 
I originally wanted to do a cross, but I ended up going a fleur-de-lis pattern. 
It was such a simple little project. I printed out a fleur-de-lis from clip art, traced the pattern on to the transfer sheet, and cut it out.  I then ironed it on top of the monogram, and was done.  

Now, I have a hoodie that I can use.  I added a fabric flower for a little extra interest, but I think I am going to add some rhinestones instead. 
Thanks for visiting.  I am linking up to Suburbs Mama.
