Where are they now? ~ The Idea Room

While I’m away for THE CREATIVE CONNECTION, I’ve asked a few of my past features for their top 5 favorite projects!  Today I have Amy from The Idea Room.  She’s actually with me at The Creative Connection, but somehow I convinced her that even though she has lots of children, I was still busier than her and needed some guest posting.  :)  Love me some Amy.


Hey there! My name is Amy and I blog over at The Idea Room and today is the “second best day of my life”…The first best day was when Kim featured The Idea Room here on Today’s Creative Blog the first time. Since then, Kim has become a good friend in real life. I just love her fun and sassy sense of humor! And I am honored to be here again today. I had a hard time picking my top 5 posts and finally settled on the following for many reasons.

Monogrammed Hand Sanitizer/Soap Bottles

I chose these simply because of the sheer number that I have personally made and given as gifts to my kids teachers, neighbors for Christmas gifts, new mothers and girlfriends. They are such an easy, inexpensive, classy and a totally practical gift. I love them! And the possibilities of words, images and phrases you can use are endless.


Antique Acid Washed Mirror

I chose this one because it is one of my favorite projects I have made. Every time I see it, it makes me smile. I need to make another one for my room now.

Fabric Wristlet Key Chains

This is another great gift item that I have made and given to several of my friends and family members. Also a super practical gift and great for moms!

Rainbow Layer Cake

Love. This. Cake!! Happiness on a plate!

How to Frame in a Mirror

Love this one simply because of the huge impact it had for good on the overall look of the bathroom. One of the easiest ways to class up a bathroom quickly!



Thanks so much Kim for having me! I would love for you to stop by The Idea Room and check some of the other ideas, projects and tutorials I have shared!
