Production Day

I'm getting ready for a production shoot, should be fun we're tackling some cute projects today. There's this great one where I'll show people how to apply these neat vinyl lettering quotes to their wall - super cute and pretty inexpensive! We're also making a great activity table for kids! Make sure you check often to find the how to sheets on my various projects. Busy day - better get moving!

I just finished a really cute and super simple project. I was going through some stuff in the attic - you know “practice what you preach” – I came across some white ruffled valances from ages ago. As I was folding them for goodwill I noticed they looked like those old 1950’s aprons. So, I cut one in half and pressed the raw seam into place with iron fusible tape. Then I ran some wide ribbon through the rod pockets and Voila! Two adorable little aprons that my little friends Audrey and Emily can wear the next time they come over to make cookies! (I’ll take pictures) I can’t wait – too cute!

Jumping Off!

You asked for it – so here it is, Mrs. FIXIT’s blog – the day to day life of a domestic diva (just kidding, diva sounded good with day to day!) Anyway, I think this will be a lot of fun. I’ll give you a sneak peek into upcoming projects, daily dilemmas here at home and special tips that you can use to tackle projects and problems around the house! Let me know about your projects too and feel free to share your favorite tips too!!
