You Lake Me Smile

Working in the studio and these fun pillows had me longing for a hammock, iced tea and water breezes! You Lake Me Smile… Just the perfect touch of rustic fun for a lake house or cabin! Now where is that hammock? Then I start working on these fourth of July pillows! Now I need some sparklers too 🙂 Home of the Brave Pillow Kijsa...

Design Editor Fun

Thinking about keeping up with the Joneses? Then one of these cute Burlap pillows would be just the ticket! I am so thrilled to have a mention with The Design Editor and my custom pillows I create for my studio and etsy shop!I love making these fun home accents! SO much so, when I sat down and tallied ii up, I made over 1000 burlap pillows last year in 2012!!!! So many choices…custom shapes, custom phrases… I create almost all to order…sewing, handlettering, hand painting! but each one made with love, fun, and a bit of whimsy!  ...

Cute & Easy Burlap Tags

Looking for a cute and easy burlap tag for my kitchen baskets…I happened upon this cute, super easy (even better than cute ) way to make burlap tags while working on another project in the studio. You will need: 1.small pieces of burlap ( a great way to use up those scraps left over from those other cute interest projects you are making! 2. Decopage Glue 3.Foam brush, scissors, hole punch, ribbon 4. a plastic surface (I had some acrylic sheets in the studio- but any flat plastic will work) 5. paint & brush for numbers  Lay the burlap onto of the plastic and coat thoroughly with Decopage glue and foam brush, making sure it is on front and back and goes all the way to the edges of your piece of burlap. Let dry thoroughly, then peel away from plastic… Determine the shape of your tags and use the scissors to cut out. (I used square…but let your mind run: circle, oval, etc.) DO not worry about fraying. The glue has sealed the woven surface, so you get a nice straight line without fraying…   Use a hole punch to create the hole at the top…insert ribbon of your choice… Paint on number, initial, label etc using acrylic craft paint….if you want a guide, print out a favorite font from your computer and use as such… Let dry…then tie on & enjoy!
