How to create a Land of Nod boy's space-themed bedroom on a budget

My Inspiration

Over the years I've been known to ooh and aah over certain Land of Nod catalogs.
Like, say, all of them. They're a great place to look for decorating inspiration for
your children's bedrooms and play spaces. Only problem is, I can't afford the price
tags that go along with their awesome stuff. That's why I had to resort to ingenuity
and imagination to get a

A lovely customer of mine recently requested a custom made necklace for a friend's birthday.

She knew exactly what she wanted and I was happy to oblige.

Even though I began my jewelry-making journey by designing vintage charm bracelets, I've branched out into making vintage charm necklaces as well. I'm very happy they've been so well received and I really do love making them.

For this particular necklace I added a vintage charm to the front of an antique brass locket. My mission, always, is to repurpose bits and pieces of vintage treasures into fresh, new jewelry designs.

Before and after map coordinates pillow

DIY map coordinates pillow
I rank map coordinate pillows right up there with monograms. Just like
monograms, they're graphical and they tell a story. I can't get enough
of monograms and numbers - they're all over my house, so it's really no
surprise that I've been wanting to make a map coordinates pillow for quite

Heidi Swapp Marquee Love: DIY Marquee Letters

Marquee Love Collection

I'm in the planning stages of a gallery wall art project and it's killing me.
I'm very hesitant about what types of wall art to include. But one thing I
know for sure is that I want to try something different than your run-of-the-mill
photos in matted frames. I'd like to use some contrasting colors and textures

It Is Well With My Soul Reverse Chalk Transfer Method

I've been haunted by a certain saying lately, having seen it all over
blogland for a while now. Have you seen it?

It is Well

My Soul

"It is Well with My Soul" written well over a hundred years ago by Horatio
Spafford and Philip Bliss. When I looked into the history of the song, I was quite

A DIY Chalkboard and a Free Valentine's Day Chalkboard Printable!

Valentine's Chalkboard Printable

First off, I really need your help.

 I have an awesome chalkboard
and it's Brand. Spanking. New.

Never been used. It was originally an oval mirror I picked up at a thrift
store. I turned it into a chalkboard for my jewelry show at The Festival
of the Vine in Geneva, IL. But it didn't sell so I got to bring it home with
me. Here's the before shot taken in my garage.
