Blogger Craft Club: Ombré Heart

blogger-craft-club-ombre-heart01My blogger friends Jill and Erin hosted the first Blogger Craft Club at Smitten last week. Even though I’m not the best at crafty things, it was a lot of fun. Since the first club was around Valentine’s Day, we painted ombré hearts on aprons. It was such a cute project and if I could do it, anybody can. We used the eraser part of the pencil and dabbed it into fabric paint and then onto the apron with a stencil. After 72 hours, it was safe to wear. With my new found talent of cooking, I’m sure to get a lot of use out of it. Aside from all the crafting that took place, it was lovely hanging out with the girls and sharing ideas for the next craft club.

P.S. These fun drinks were non-alcoholic (coconut and orange juice). AND how cute was the tablescape?!

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life… Now that’s one catchy song that always plays at the right moment and that same exact right moment when you need a friend, that friend just happens to stumble upon this one-of-a-kind boom box bag and is a sign that all is going to be alright in the universe.

I can’t keep from smiling in today’s post because the fun accessories make it really hard to be serious in this look. Besides, part of dressing is having fun with your wardrobe and feeling great in what you wear. Also, can you believe I DIY’d this button-down? It’s such a great way to switch up an old shirt and make it new again.

A little something different for the blog today: I did my first DIY project!  I decided to cut off the sleeves off of one of my shirts.  I was leaning towards donating it, but decided to give it a second life.  It was really simple really.  Take one of your long sleeved button down shirts, cut off the sleeves at the shoulders and you have the perfect sleeveless summer shirt.
