Nuby in the Community!

A little over a week ago was my turn for the Nuby in the Community project!
I teamed up with a local day care owner/friend of mine Jamie - to see if we could get together with all the kids and do a fun project. Together we are both seamstresses as well, so it seemed only natural that we would do something fabric/sewing related. What we came up with was to buy a bunch of fabric and a bunch of markers and let the kids go to town coloring and drawing pictures... we then would sew them all together and donate them to a local shelter or elderly home. IT was the perfect idea :) The pictures following are of all the fun we had making it happen.

First - we followed lunch up with some water in our new Nuby sippies!

Then we dove right in coloring on all the fabric. We had multiple different colors and prints of fabric... and a rainbow of Sharpies to make it beautiful. I must note... sharpies for toddlers probably wasn't my best idea.... haha we ended up with quite a bit on hands and clothes. OOPS! But they still turned out great so Id call that a success!

We really had a great time, and I am so glad to have been able to be a part of it and the Nuby in The Community project. Look forward to the next one to come!

Favorites Friday.... on Tuesday :) Vinyls

This week... totally random theme, but with the big move coming I have been planning new decor... and i am loving all these vinyl wall stickers... and having a REALLY hard time picking a couple cuz I want them all, but fear that would just look silly, lol On the flip side... vinyls are great for condo living where you can't paint... they are easy to take down... but still add personality. So here are some of the themes we have picked out for the new place...
Living Room: Traditional Tattoos... found some cool sailor Jerry flash canvases with pinups... anchors, etc. way cool. Lots of Reds, Creams & Browns..
Master Bedroom: its all done in the Damask Rock fabric... red curtains, and I bought some awesome tin stars w/ damask here on etsy to coordinate... SO excited..
Master Bathroom: Old Hollywood... bought some Marilyn Monroe & Audrey Hepburn art... then made a few cute pieces myself!
Boys room... Pirates!
And we still have a lonnnng way to go, lol... Any ideas!? Id love to hear what you guys think... how do you feel about Vinyls? Cute? Cheesy?
