Organization Made Pretty

Target is finally open in Canada, WOOO HOOO!  The store closest to us opened last week I couldn't resist going. I felt as though I was going on a trip to the States without the long drive...it was awesome. I am happy to say the wait was well worth it.  Everything in the store is unique to Target, I could have spent a fortune on clothing and home items, but I resisted.

I just love finding different ways to use things, other than how they are intended.  While I was at Target I picked up these really awesome food divider trays, and thought they would be great for organizing other things as well. See some of my ideas for them below. The colours are amazing and the cost couldn't be better at only $2.39 a pair.

DIY placemat pillows


I love placemats! I never use them, but I just love the look of them, they are full of wonderful patterns and designs.  So the other day when I was out shopping I came across some placemats that I fell in love with. I resisted buying them cause I know I use them once then get annoyed with them on my table and put them away, never to be used again. Then it hit me! I can make pillows out of them and enjoy them every day!!!

This is a great pillow DIY project as placemats can be very inexpensive, the placemats I used were only $2.49 each.  Can't get much cheaper than that!  I used a coordinating fabric that I had for the back, but you can always buy an extra placemat and just use that for the back.  Below is my placemat pillow DIY. Have fun creating your own!

The first step is to select your placemat and coordinating fabric of choice. 

With right sides together cut the coordinating fabric to the size of the placemat.  Pin the placemat and the coordinating fabric together, then sew together leaving a space large enough to turn the fabric right side out. 

Cut the excess fabric off, then turn the pillows right side out. 

Fill the pillows with stuffing (you will require more than you think necessary to make them quite plush, as you can see below). 

Once pillows have been filled with stuffing you will need to hand sew the opening that you left. 

Viola you are done, a beautiful pillow to accent your room.

Lampshade DIY

Like most crafters I have a ton of fabric at home. I see fabrics that I love at the store and buy them even though I am not sure what I will be doing with them.  Don't judge...I am sure there are a ton of you out there that do the same :).

So anyway, I wanted to revamp the lampshade in our living room so instead of heading to the fabric store I decided to look through my fabric stash, and I ended up finding exactly what I was looking for.

This was a quick and easy DIY.  All you need is a lampshade, your fabric of choice, a glue gun and scissors.

Check out the end result.

DIY postcard art


I wanted to share with you a quick and easy Art DIY I did.

All you need are the following items:
1) Canvas - I got mine from the dollar store
2) Paint & Paintbrush (optional) to paint the canvas in your colour of choice
3) Double Sided Tape
4) Postcards - I got mine from IKEA for about $5.00, but you can use ones that you got while on vacation, received from friends and family or even pick up some vintage ones from an antique shop.





It is very simple project but I think it looks pretty nice - simple and clean.  Also since I used double sided tape, I can change out the postcard anytime I please.

Until next time....
