The Most Amaaaaaaazing Rugs!

I came across the most amazing rug today on the interwebuales (I know, I sort of made that word up...):

Right?!?!?! Totally blows my mind. I love it SO much.

But then, the same artist (Sonya Winner) also did this one:

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW! I think I love them both equally...though they are completely different, no?

Genius work by this artist.

DIY: Organizing your Garden Tools

I loved this idea when I saw it - so simple! And this is the perfect time of year to get everything corralled before the cooler months roll in.

Check out Martha Stewart for all the great details on creating this beautifully organized storage solution for all of your garden tools!

My new love, my new line Trulaaluu. Loving creating again after a few year hiatus. I've got my etsy store up though most of my merchandise was bought out either through the two farmers markets I just went to and the store in town that I'm now working with.

Isn't being creative marvelous? Check out my etsy store and see if there is anything that you're interested in; I promise to add some new items very soon :)

DIY: iPhone 4 Cover

I have a confession to make: I have now owned four iPhone covers and haven't been FULLY satisfied with any of them. And I've only had my phone since May of this year. So yeah, not a great track record with the cases...

Anyway, this past week I decided to just make my own and now I am SO much happier. I bought a clear case with white bumpers from Target. I then cut a piece of oilcloth from my craft stash to fit inside the clear back against the back of my phone. The most time consuming part was cutting out the camera hole but it turned out really well.

And the best part? It is EXACTLY the way I want it. Seriously, this was the easiest project ever. Try it!

DIY: Decoupaging a Filing Cabinet

This week I took my very utilitarian (read: boring) grey file cabinet from drab to fab. I had been thinking about doing it for awhile, then suddenly, I just DID it. Love it when creativity + time = perfect moment to make something.

I decoupaged the sides and drawer fronts with pages from the classic "Atlas Shrugged". It was a very old copy so the coloring was perfect. I simply bought a container of decoupage glue from Michaels, ripped up pages randomly (sorry Altas...) and applied everything while watching TV.

Once it was dry, I finished up the project with some handles I had laying around from Anthropologie.

The whole project took about an hour, plus 12 hours for solid drying. It was worth it. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
