V and Co.

Look what I found clicking through all your links you all posted on Get Your Craft On.  And you thought I started that to bring you more inspiration & excitement didn’t you?  Well it’s actually another way to find great features.  (insert wicked laugh)

I swear….well not really……..but I was certain I had already featured her….but I didn’t see the “featured button” ….that all featured bloggers post….ahem ….then I did a search on my own blog and she didn’t pop up……….so a feature is born.  V and Co.  What caught my eye on the link she shared with us on Get Your Craft On was the Pottery Barn looking decorative balls.

This doesn’t require sewing, so I am all over it!  I can spray paint like a pro and I own a glue gun…….I think I might even have a ball of twine around here………sure I do……….buried in my craft room somewhere.

She shows a step by step TUTORIAL!!!!  Easy peasy….these look good!  Thank you V for adding your link to my Mcklinky.

2009 08 15_8460_edited-1I am really enjoying all the before and afters I’ve been finding lately.  I might even say I’m addicted to them.  They bought a house that needed a bit of work……a diamond in the rough you might say.  100_0505Who is Gods name would paint this color on the outside of a home like this? 

Well if they were bold enough to make such a decision…….certainly adding MORE blue inside would be perfect.  I think they were eating too many “brownies” and watching Trading spaces.  But V and her husband could see the future for this house….Something shiny caught their eye.100_0494

TaDa!!!  Would you look at the transformation?  You would never NEVER know it was the same house!  I bet their neighbors wanted to kiss them when they brought the property value up in the neighborhood.  You know what else?  Just a hunch that she’s from Utah?  You know how I can tell?  No no no, it’s not the glue gun, it’s not the children…..it’s that star……every house I saw this summer has a star.  I love them…..most are black I noticed…….I want one.

Speaking of that gaggle of children she has….they’re darling little buggers……..You’ll have to read her post on this photo below.  I just about pee’d my pants.  Those are her sons taking a Mud bath……..and she was cool enough to not freak out when she discovered them.

She has more tutorials on her site than you can shake a stick at.  And she sells all her patterns in her Etsy shop.   She’s a busy girl.

OK, ladies……..you all did SO good leaving comments for my featured bloggers.  Don’t break your cycle…….head over and leave her a ton too.  While you’re there, hang out for a bit…….look for her story about the kids and the mud….  Enjoy your day.
