Market Collective – 7th Birthday!

August 2015 Blue Web Poster

Hooray! I was luck enough to be accepted, and will have another table at Market Collective in August. It was a blast meeting everyone at the last show, and I can’t wait for this one to get underway!

East Village is an amazing location, and the vendor list is so jam packed full of wonderful people, the weekend is going to rock. Come and see me, my new flamingo and watermelon cake toppers will be there, along with so many new plush cameras.

Flamingo Cake Toppers

Flamingo Cake Topper

The gangs all here! The flamingo feathers are flying, and it’s all for the best. Some new ladies have been added to my Cake Topper collection and I’m SO excited for you to see them. These feathered beauties are the perfect size for a cake, pie, stack of cupcakes, or pile of brownies!

Meet Frankie, She’s the funny one, loves pizza and cries during commercials.
Meet Florence, She’s shy, likes bubble gum and wishes she was a rockstar.
Meet Farrah, She’s sassy, likes glitter and wishes she was an emoji.

The best part of these toppers (besides everything) are that the legs are reusable! That means your flamingo can adorn more than one event, or hang out in a house plant and be wiped off and used again.

I hope you love them as much as I do!

First Market Collective

July 2015 Banner with Times

One of my big goals was to finally take part in a market as a vendor, the Etsy community has been amazing, but it was time to take the jump locally. I’m taking part in my first Market Collective!

As someone who is actually very shy in person, I’m feeling all the feels, but I’m excited to get out there and see what happens.
If you’re looking for a Plush Camera locally, make sure to stop by and visit my table from July 17th – 19th.

Pallet Succulent Wall

IMG_9015.1 copyWhen we purchased our new home, we inherited a backyard that is really lacking. Not in space, but in aesthetics. The fence on our side is not in the greatest of shape, based on the previous owners. Since we can’t replace the whole fence I decided to get creative with pallets. We have a tiered fence where the boards run horizontal. This is causing our neighbours massive garden to push through the boards on the bottom half because of the weight. Which means broken and buckled boards, and dirt pouring into our yard.

So I decided to build a pallet wall, with the ability to hang succulents. This will add stability, and some fun to our side.succ1Supplies:

Pallets
Nails
Paint Samples (optional)
Metal Hangers (Ikea)
Mini Buckets
Succulents
Potting Soil with Rocks

I picked up a bunch of fun coloured buckets from Targets dollar section, and nailed a few holes in the bottom to allow run off of extra water. The succulents, I found at Walmart for about $3.00 a piece. Simply add some soil to each bucket, de-pot your succulents and plant.

succ2Now for the Pallet Wall. Make sure you have a parter to help you lift the pallets as they are deceivingly heavy! For our space we used 5 pallets only having to cut one in half. I kind of liked the quirkiness of one pallet going vertical, and it was way easier for cutting purposes. I hammered some nails along the outside edges, and then nailed each pallet to the next. I had some left over paint samples in a citrus and teal then simply dry brushed it on a few of the boards.

IMG_9011.1 copyAttach your hooks over the boards and hang your succulents. Ta-Da! This project was so affordable, it would have been silly not to do it. As we improve our backyard it would be great to have this area as a backdrop for some seating.

Medicine Cabinet Makeover

anchor3This makeover wasn’t something I was planning on, but a routine trip to Ikea provided some inspiration. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again always check the “As Is” section at IKEA. I found this White Metal Medicine Cabinet for $5.00. Crazy! It was marked “Damaged and Scratched” coincidentally I couldn’t find a mark, and it came with 2 sets of keys. START THE CAR!

Supplies:

Grab your Cabinet (or makeover surface of choice)
Spray Paint
Masking Tape
Blocking Paper
Templateanchor1Tape down your template, and make sure all edges are lying flat to eliminate bleeding. Use your blocking paper to cover the rest of the surface that will remain unpainted, and to protect the surroundings. I’m a messy painter so this step just makes the fallout more manageable. If your surface is extra smooth give the area  a little run over with a piece of sandpaper, it gives the paint something to adhere to. Shake your spray paint well, and add a few thin coats of paint allowing each layer to dry in between coats.

anchor2Now hang this bad boy up in in your bathroom, or any room really. It holds loads and looks pretty wonderful. Did I also mention that it’s magnetic? Be still my heart.
