5 fun and creative discoveries


This photo and glamourous Derby fascinator from Chamberry Cherry’s shop. It makes me want to go to the Kentucky Derby. I lived there for 30 years and never went once, though I did go to Churchill Downs. Woe is me.

DIY Decal Headboards found on Decor 8’s blog by Blik.

The Celebrity Junk Drawer artwork of Jason Mecier. Yes, it really is made from personal junk from celebrities. Awesome little vid!

I’m very much intrigued by the texture and imagery in this pretty SEW collage found on Wendy Rago’s blog.

This masking tape installation art by Rebecca Ward is so amazing! I wonder how many times she got the tape twisted or stuck to itself! It would be a nightmare project for me!

Hope you enjoyed these fun inspirations!

Until next time Swellions!


Pumpkin Painting Idea Center

The pumpkin bunch

Hello all. I don’t don’t know if I officially told you about this, but I wanted to direct you over to my work’s web site to check out the bevy of fun and inspiring pumpkin painting ideas! This is a little graphic I whipped up for the home page. Our designers are super talented and come up with the best ideas for transforming painted pumpkins, so it’s never hard for me to create a graphic with a lot of personality!

The site features over 40 pumpkin painting ideas as well as other fun Halloween craft projects, from wearables to accessories to d├ęcor! There really is a style of pumpkin or craft for everyone! Also on the site is a section of tips and techniques, telling you exactly how to prepare your pumpkin. Other sections are “How to throw a pumpkin painting party” and “how to display your painted pumpkins”. The creative departments really worked hard to bring you these fun ideas, so check it out today!

Click here to check out the site! Please stop by and paint a spell, won’t you?
