Framed Bow Holder

Some of you had asked me how I made the bow holder and the necklace holder. I thought I would tell you how today.

I get CHEAP frames at Hobby Lobby. They have a section with damaged frames for next to nothing. I think this one was 75% off. I try to find frames that are dark in color. I had the people at HL cut me some mat board for the frame. They put the staples in the edges to hold it in for me. They also put a wire hanger on the back. I think they charged about $2. I also purchased some batting that was REALLY cheap. I found this fabric and ribbon there too.

I used a hot glue gun to hold down the batting. I pulled the fabric around the edges and hot glued it too. The three ribbons to hold the bows were ...yes, you guessed

I got some cheap house paint and painted the frame off white. I gave it 24 hours to dry and then used sand paper on the edges to make it look antiqued.

Fun and easy!
Sarah Kate put this tutu on this morning. She is loving to dress up these days.

I am a long time reader of both your blog and Kelly's, but I hardly ever comment. I love the new layout! The pink and black is cute! I also love the bow holder! What a fun and inexpensive craft and it looks very expensive! I would have guessed you bought it in a children's boutique!

I am a long time reader as well. I just love that bow holder.... THANK YOU!!! Can't wait for the next great deal at Goodwill for the frame.
My photo shoot for Arden got rescheduled to June 30 since it was raining again right when we were trying to leave. I got your bows to borrow. Let me know if you need them back before the 30th, or if you want me to keep them and return them after that date. Thanks so much!
How Cute Laurie! So talented!!!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
