We’re on a Roll!

Happy Friday! Today, we’d like to share a little project that Ingrid created a few months ago.  On a warm winter’s eve (south Texas is home for us), she pinned the night away, finding some some super cool art made from toilet paper rolls.  Thus, the obsession began to create her own original piece.  We love scrolling through pins to get our creative juices flowing—what in the world did we do before pinterest!?!  Ingrid started collecting her toilet paper rolls until she had enough for her project.  She created these two canvas pieces with toilet paper rolls, acrylic paint, and some wooden sticks & buttons from the craft box.  The trusty painter’s tape helped create the stripes, and hot glue put it all together.  They hang side by side in her bedroom, and the color scheme blends perfectly with the decor.

As we are inspired by so many, we hope to pay it forward and do the same for others with our designs….have a lovely weekend!

We’re always looking for simple, fast & creative gift ideas.  When Lucy decided to pick up sewing, I knew she needed a cute and fun project to display in her sewing space. This personalized canvas art was super easy to make. I picked up canvas, wooden letters, and fabric from the craft store . After stretching the fabric over the canvas, I simply stapled it to the back.  Taking Lucy’s favorite color, I painted the wooden letters…and as an added touch, I distressed the letters a bit with fine sandpaper. The monogram art hangs over her sewing table and hopefully inspires her to create beautiful scarves for me!
