Hooded Baby Towel: Clothesline Design

My sister just recently delivered a beautiful, healthy baby girl.  I decided to make both niece and my husband’s cousin’s daughter (born earlier this year) hooded towels in a very pretty, pastel girl pattern. I love how these turned out!

Hooded Baby Towel - Clothesline Design

I used a brown towel (from Target) and a matching hand towel. I noticed in doing these towels how much I really enjoy working on them and they make a special gift when I embroider their name on them. I work at NoteworthyNotes in Chicago so I have access to a machine which is a huge bonus!

Guest Book Revamp

My sister is getting married this May and I finally got around to working on re-vamping a guestbook my mom gave me to use. The original had the same white ribbon (but more of it) and a flower with beads in the center. Using the wedding colors I took a few items from my craft supplies, a glue gun & went to work. I’m really excited about the end result!

Spicin’ Up the Recipe Box

I decided to do a little redecorating of a recipe box I received from my sister as part of a bridal shower gift. The size is perfect to fit by 4×6 and 3×5 index and recipe cards so I didn’t want to throw it away – just add some color.


I started my project by wiping down the tin container and applying Mod Podge to it. I then applied a layer of pink tissue paper to serve as my background color.

I then started applying pieces of scrapbooking and cardstock paper I had cut up into preferred sizes.After placing the paper where I wanted to on the tin I applied another coat of Mod Podge with a sponge.

I’m very excited for finished product. The colors don’t necessarily go with my kitchen decor, however it will encourage me to get out a recipe and bake or cook. How can I resist opening such a cute little box?
