Martha Stewart at My House!

12 comments:
May is a busy month in my household.  Let me do a quick run down for you... May 1 is my Dad's birthday, May 3 is my husbands Gram's birthdays and May 4 is my Memere's.  May 5 is my niece Melanie's, May 9 is my Mom's, then Mothers day.  May 16 is my daughters birthday and May 23 is my SIL's.  Of course there is also Memorial Day which is the kick off to our camping season.  There is also usually a school concert mixed in there somewhere, and of course regular day-to-day life.  See?  Busy.

When Plaid contacted me about sending me some products from the Martha Stewart Craft Line to create a project around Mother's Day I almost balked.  But then I thought, hey, this will mean I will HAVE TO concentrate on at least TWO of the things I have going on in May, in APRIL.  WOOT WOOT!  So today I share with you the projects I created for my Mom for Mother's Day and for her Birthday using the awesome supplies I received!

First, check out this swag bag of goodies:

HOW TO - Add Custom Content to your Facebook Timeline Tabs

1 comment:


 I discovered Shortstack.com earlier this week and I highly recommend checking it out if you have a Facebook page for your blog.  I was able to add my blog rss feed to a tab so people can click it and read my posts via the feed.  It also allows people to share my content on Facebook, exposing me to even more readers!  I had already used Woobox to install the Pinterest tab, which allows your fans to view your pins right there on Facebook.  But really you can do that via Short Stack as well.  Definitely take a moment to check it out and explore!
 
And to see how else I used Short Stack, check out East Coast Creative's Facebook.
Happy Creating! ~Kim

By the sewing bug.  I just can't stop.  HA HA.
I fell in love with this sweet little pleated dress over at Make It and Love It.  And wouldn't you know it, Ashley shared a tutorial!  I ran to Joann's, purchased some fabric, grabbed a tank top and went to work.

Baby Doll Carrier Tutorial

6 comments:
In case you missed my guest post over at The Ribbon Retreat Blog a few weeks back,
below is my Baby Doll Carrier Tutorial:
I searched high and low for an easy to sew, inexpensive Doll Carrier pattern and didn't find anything good.  After a little brain storming I came up with one of my own and of course I have to share!  This is a pretty simple project that even a beginner can handle it.
