Gift Exchange

I signed up to participate in a Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous.  Linda has spent a lot of time working on this exchange and has done an amazing job.  I had so much fun making my gifts for my "giftee".  She had a couple of items listed on her wishlist that I knew I could easily create.  My "giftee", Carrie should receive her gifts on Monday.  I hope she enjoys them.

These pillows are similar to her wishlist.  I used different material and cut out the word with my Silhouette.

Carrie also had a monogram letter to hang on a front door on her wishlist.  I struggled with this item and almost didn't send it, but decided it was made with love and again, I hope Carrie likes it.

I am definitely going to participate in the next Gift Exchange that Linda hosts.  I love making things for others and this is my chance to do so.


Simply Spray...

I am an avid reader of several blogs.  One of my favorites is Hyphen Interiors.  Kristy Swain is an interior designer who recently moved to Austin.  She has some awesome design ideas.  I feel honored that she and I correspond with each other every now and again.  Unfortunately she lives in way south Austin and I live just north or Austin, so we haven't had a chance to meet up.

Long story long... Kristy is becoming famous for painting upholstery on furniture.  She did a series about Simply Spray which is an upholstery spray paint.  I was quite intrigued and can't wait to try it.  I have 4 chairs that I love, but they are looking a little shabby.  I think Simply Spray will spruce them up so I can hang on to these chairs for a few more years.

Go check out Kristy's blog.  You won't be disappointed!
