diy {vacation shadowbox & custom stencil}

Ummm..wow! Thanks for all your kind comments about my room yesterday. Some of them made me laugh pretty good. Thanks!!

*******

It is that time of the month for my contributor posts over on  Design*Sponge and Design Aglow. For those of you new (and old) to my blog you might be wondering how I ended up being a contributor on those two amazing sites….well I ask myself that every month too. I figure I’ll enjoy it until they are done with me!

On Design Aglow I am posting a tutorial for creating a vacation shadowbox

On Design*Sponge I am sharing how to create a custom stencil, like what I used on my sub-floors.

  • Shannon - I caught the design aglow post yesterday in my feeds and scrolled quickly throught without reading, and immediately starred it to come back and read later, not knowing it was yours! I should have known! You have such great style that even without knowing the author I was enamored by the project! Can’t wait to save some mementos from our summer trips this year to make my own!

  • giozi - I saw design aglow yesterday and I loved your tutorial. Fantastic.

  • Mallory @ R. Simple Life - Oooh, I’m excited for the custom stencil how-to! I’ve been wanting to create one for a wall in my office but was unsure how to go about it! :-)
