4th of July Crafts

This year was the first year I realized I had no 4th of July decorations. I needed to change that desperately. I am leaving out of town to visit my family in California so I need to get a head start on things. And then it was great because I was able to use them for Memorial Day, Flag Day and leave them up till the 4th. 
Love how this turned out. I spent time wrapping it during SYTYCD and the Bachlorette and then finished it at a craft night at my house. It was fun teaching a bunch of girls how do to them, chat and eat yummy treats. That is part of the reason I like crafting...let's be honest.
I found the hay wreath at the Hobby Lobby and the yarn and felt stars at Michaels.
I have been loving pinwheels-so I tried my hand at them.  Just used scrapbook/cardstock paper, straight pins, erasers from pencils and the plastic sticks from the flags below.
Love how they turned out. Great little centerpiece for a BBQ. Or I may put them in the lawn along the driveway. 
And they even spin! 
I bought a bunch of flags at the Dollar Tree, took them off their plastic sticks and made a bunting with some yarn I already had. 

Feeling very festive...too bad I won't be here to enjoy them during the 4th. 
Hope these ideas inspire you!

The Day After

Hope ya'll (I can say that now cause I live in the South) had a great Memorial Day Weekend. I know I sure did. Full off fun at the lake, barbecuing, flying a kite and watching kids run in the sprinklers. Now that it is the day after it is time to get back to work! Wawa! Boring. But I don't what it is I love packing up each pair of shoe and get them ready to ship off to your homes. So that is what I am busy doing today. Expect your cute little package on your doorstep by the end of the week. If you weren't able to order during the busy weekend stay tuned for the next big sale!

I took a couple ballet classes and I am hooked again. I used to dance pretty much everyday for close to 18 years. After having my second baby I decided I wanted to try it again after taking the Pure Barre classes. Those really helped me get my body ready. I can't wait to find a studio in Georgia so I can at least take a class a week. Feels so good to do something you love.

Love is in the Air

 I have had these books I bought from the Dollar Tree for months and I finally got to use some pages. I loved how this bunting turned out and it was $1!
 I also bought a couple packages of dollies also at the Dollar Tree. I just sewed them together and it make cute garland for the stairs and above our table. Nothing better than a cute inexpensive craft! Hopefully this inspires your Valentine's crafts!

Great Excuses

I love a good excuse to try a new recipe and idea. It was my good friend's 30th birthday and her husband planned a surprise party and we were in charge of the cake. He told us that Kit Kat's were her favorite and I remember seeing a cake done like this so I thought I'd try my hand at it. And I have seen a bunch of these little banners like this and thought the cake needed one for sure! And since I left it plain I will be able to use it again and again. After I baked a regular cake box mix I used roughly 36 Kit Kat and broke them apart every two bars. Then poured a bag of M&M's on the top and tied it with a ribbon so it would give it a little more support. My daughter and I happened to eat at Panda Express the day before and I just grabbed an extra pair of chopsticks for the banned and used a diamond stencil and paper I had laying around. I love how it turned out and my friend was very surprised and love her cake!

New Shoes & New Chapter

The best part about being a buyer is you get to shop a season or two ahead. So though it's cold (well somewhere I'm sure it is), I get a peek into the spring lines. I will be excited to get new sandals and open toes, but in the meantime I found the perfect transitional shoe. These Zig Zag Flats I bought up immediately. I like these because they look great with a lot of Winter clothes, but they will easily transition into Spring...and let's be honest, into Summer and probably for a good year or two for me. When I find a winner I wear those suckers out. 
The good news is they are ready for sale on, the bad news for some and good news for others is that Twigg is moving! Yup, we are moving to The South ya'll...Atlanta to be exact. Though we are a little nervous for the big change, I am so excited to check out all the charm and style-not to mention food, that the south has to offer. My husband lived there for awhile before and loved it. More to come on all the details!
Moving means packin' up shop! We will be moving Twigg at the end of February and closed the month of March-yikes! So those who have thought about party or buying shoes-now is the time. We will open up promptly in Atlanta at the start of April but shipping for my West Coast customers will be more. I have already had some requests for these shoes, so get your orders in. So much to do and so little time! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

DIY Headboard

Finished my first upholstery project few days ago (yes, there will be more)! I am so happy with how it turned out that I thought I would post the tutorial. Here is the finished product:
The fabric is more coral than red-my camera wasn't picking up the color very well.
 How it started. I bought this beauty on Craigslist for $50. Way better then having to cut the plywood myself and cover it with batting and I was in love with the shape!
 I bought my fabric at Joann and it was on sale for $10 a yard. A steal compared to the $50 fabric I was previously eyeing. This frame is a double bed (60 x 60) so I bought 2 yards since the fabric was an outdoor upholstery fabric it was 58 inches wide. 
I first laid the fabric out on a sheet and ironed it, then laid the frame on top making sure that there were no waves underneath. Then I cut around the shape of the frame leaving about 5 inches. 
 Using mine and my husband's muscles and smoothing skills we stapled with a staple gun about every inch starting from the bottom and working around one side. 
 This would be a cinch if the headboard were square, but with the curves it took a lot longer to pull and make it tight. Also, since I picked a fabric with a pattern it was much harder making sure the lines and squares were even and centered. Again, much easier if you pick a solid color fabric. In this picture I moved into the kitchen to see it in better light and then I trimmed the extra fabric of the back.
I could have stopped here and I do love the simplicity of it but I knew I wanted to add nailheads. You can buy the individual nailheads or what I bought the nailhead trim kits, because it was more cost effective and much easier to obtain a straight line rather than nailing in one at a time.
 I bought a nickel trim kit that was 10 yards (with shipping $25) because it was about the same cost as the 5 yard kit. So I have over 5 yards left over for my next project. With the trim kit you are to nail down every 5th one, but the nails weren't holding because the padding was too thick. So with instead I used tacky glue that I already had and then nailed down every 5th one with a longer nailhead. (Hope you don't have to face that) After measuring it out, we decided it was easier to just eyeball it bent the trim all the way around the frame. Make sure you do all of this with the headboard on a the ground (a clean ground that is).
I still need to trim and glue the edges on the bottom in this picture, but you get the idea. 
I roughly spent $90 on a double bed frame that would normally cost at least $300 and it was fun to do on my own. I can't wait to see what it looks like in my little girl's new room! Good luck and let me know if you have any questions!

A Little Obsessed

I can't stop making these bows and headbands for my girls. I found these headbands at The Dollar Tree. 8 for $1. And $.29 for a sheet of felt at Michael's. They are very girly but not over the top and too big. I am also obsessed because they are so easy. Heavy thread and a glue gun get it done. 
So adorable, like I said obsessed.

Holidays Are Over

Now that the Holidays are officially over and I now have no excuse since my baby is 4 months old it is time to kick it into high gear. While I was still pregnant I saw these classes and wanted to try them so bad.  Thanks to my mom and dad I got 10 classes for my birthday. I was so excited to try them out. Let's just said it is such a hard workout. You do not need to know ballet to do it-it is just straight up hard. My legs are dead midway through the class. It is just intense repetitions using the ballet barre, weights, bands and a ball. I highly recommend it if you need a good toning class. I am off to my 3rd class tonight, I am just praying that my legs stop shaking after a couple more classes!
