{DIY} Decorative Wooden Box for Easter

by Jillian Leslie on


I like to put out festive decorations during the different seasons, and what I love about Easter is the colors. Pastels make me happy and they definitely make me think of spring.

So when I was at Target a few days ago browsing through the $1 bins, I saw this wooden box ($3) and these rub-on transfers ($1). I decided to put the floral transfers on the box, hoping for a kind of shabby chic look and I love how it came out.

What I've Been Up To With My Cricut

by Jillian Leslie on

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was recently sent a Cricut Expression 2 by the nice folks at Cricut, and I've been busy.

I have to say, there is a learning curve to using your Cricut, so don't be surprised if it takes a little while to get the hang of it. That's what I discovered for myself, and is also why I recommend starting with some easy projects, like those found on the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge. (Perfect cartridge for party people, btw.)

PARTY ON A BUDGET: Aly's "I Love Art" Party for $100

by Jillian Leslie on

Pamela S from Party Starters throws the most beautiful parties. I was super excited when she added her newest, Aly's "I Love Art" Party, to our site . Gorgeous, right?

Then yesterday, I'm browsing through the photos saying lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" (which I honestly do -- out loud -- when I see parties I love), and all of a sudden my eyes stumble upon the number "$100" next to the budget. What?! No way. Definitely a typo.
