While in Utah, we had a last minute GNO. I was so thrilled to see many of my Creative BFF’s that I had met before, but there were a couple I hadn’t met. Like Tam. When she told me her blog name, I knew it. Thought for sure I had featured her. But she assured me I hadn’t. That’s Tam with the crown on…..I placed it there for her feature….The Best Day of her Life! (Char, 3 from the R in the top row in the yellow dubbed that saying) And just to show what a super woman she is, she had her new one week old son with her. It was so sweet of her to come hang out with me.
Tam is a stencil queen! The girl knows her way around working with stenciling and showing us how in all in her great tutorials!
She stenciled a rug! She followed the directions from Shelley.……one of my fav Utah bloggers that missed the GNO……..whatever…….Anywhoooo……..Tam also shows us her step by step on how she stenciled this rug. Between the two tutorials, I may be able to figure this out. I love the stencil she chose.
I know many of you will be jumping ALL over this one. From the white washed look of the wood to the colors of the letters………the style is perfect! Yep, she shows a tutorial so you’re in luck. In fact, she is very organized with a full page of all her tutorials. You’ll be sucked in for days.
More Stenciling, this time on a stool using spray paint. Why not add a bit of personality? The red with the white design really makes a statement don’t you think?Don’t think for a second that her talents stop there. Oh no……..she’s from Utah…….so we know she can sew. Those girls act like it’s as much a part of them as breathing. I could just DIE over this duvet cover! The yellow and grey with a smidgen of white……….sigh. If you do sew……..she does have a tutorial for this too. It just kind of made my eyes glaze over, but don’t let my reaction stop you. I can however make that wall decor piece! Looks kind of complicated………like I might have to use some math or something.
Matching lamp shade she recovered. There is no reason to live with an ugly lampshade.
Here’s another project I found that will make some of you giddy! These Pottery Barn Inspired pillows! Yep……she shows a full tutorial.
You’ll love her site, I know you will. She’s a darling girl. We got to talking and she also teaches group fitness classes, except she LOVES spin and I don’t and she’s skinny (even with a one week old child) and I’m not………..she’s young and I’m old. But I like her anyway.
While roaming around, I see she is also one of the “chefs” on Mod Bake Shop.……and if you think it’s a real bakery, then you’re not a sewing kind of person like me. It means she’s pretty talented……and can sew.
Alright, off you go. I hope you’ll leave her lots of comments telling her how you found her. Surprise her for me!
