Shabby Chic SPRING Placemats

Posted by on March 6, 2014 in Contributing Posts, DIY and Crafts, Sewing Tutorials | 21 comments

Happy Thursday, everyone!!  One day and counting until we’re leaving for vacation, and I couldn’t be more excited!!!  Call us crazy, but we’re driving to Destin, FL.  Yep … from Minnesota.  With two small children, and 30 weeks pregnant lady, and a large dog for part of the way (see gets off the bus in Iowa).  In a Honda Accord.  Wish us luck!!

In honor of warmer weather, and the month of the start of Spring … I’m over at Oh My! Creative sharing some fun, frilly, shabby chic placemats today!

I’m MORE THAN thrilled to be joining Susan’s team as a Creative Contributor!  I just love her blog, admire her as a person and blogger, and can’t get enough of her ideas and projects!   I’ll be stopping over to Oh My! Creative once a month or so to share some craftiness, decor ideas, DIY projects, or whatever else might pop into my head (and hopefully become a reality).

So, … jump on over and check out these fun placemats and say hello!

{then come back and make sure you enter our giveaway for a $75 gift card to Target!! }

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a quick post about our ‘organized’ travel attempt (ha!), and then on Saturday evening for DIY SUNDAY SHOWCASE (live at 5pm CST)!  Be sure to check in next week, too, however.  We may be out and enjoying the sun {hopefully} and sand of Destin, but I’ve got a couple fun posts planned.
