DIY Throw Pillows | Decor

Hey Guys! The next project in my daughter's room makeover includes some DIY Throw Pillows for her bed. If you missed my first project click here to see my DIY bulletin board. I searched online for some DIY ideas that were simple, sleek and pretty. I couldn't find any that piqued my interest so I decided to come up with my own design. I started out with purchasing 4 matching throw pillows for $20 on Craigslist score! Next while at my local Ikea I picked two GURLI cushion covers in the color gray. Then I headed to my local Wal Mart to find something to jazz up my pillows with. In the craft section, I found this Darice Bling on a Roll in the color silver. You get 2 yards for $2.97. I decided to cut each strip Next once I figured out what designed I wanted to do on the pillow covers. I pinned the trim down in place and began hand stitching. This process was tedious and time consuming, not gonna lie. I did most of while lounging around the house watching … [Read more...]

Hey Guys! So if you didn't know already I love tattoos, I have about 7 of them now. But let me give you a little background on some of them first. My first ever tattoo is of this little guy   I was 16 when I got this butterfly tattoo on my back (shoulder blade) it used to be cute and full of color, but over the years the color faded and it just turned into something that I didn't like anymore. I had planned on covering it up for years but for no reason in particular I just never got around to doing it. So last weekend I found a new tattoo artist and went had this covered up along with some other work done. Here is what now covers that little sad butterfly   This pretty little black and grey hummingbird :) I love it! it's so pretty; I loved it so much I got it twice!   I had another hummingbird added to my other shoulder blade.
