Steph's Gender Reveal 2015

This little baby BOY was just chillin in there, all comfy and cozy. He will be rounding out our family nicely come June - 2 girls and 2 boys in all! We are feeling incredibly blessed! Did you guys know that Meg and I have the same exact due date? What are the odds, right? Thus, we have both been super sick and slacking in the DIY area, but we are creating other little masterpieces.

Bosch GLM 15 Review

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bosch for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Gone are the days of the huge chunky tape measure. The Bosch GLM 15 brings the benefits of laser measurement to all. Anyone and everyone can use this handy little tool for the amazing price of $49!!! I was so beyond excited to try out the Bosch GLM 15 to hang a few frames that needed to be hung.

I just LOVE the size! It fits perfectly in my hand and could easily fit in my pocket as I create!
The duanting task of pulling out the tape measure and figuring where these frames should go was too much. Finally, I was able to hang them with ease, and perfectly spaced might I add, with the small and amazing laser measurer. Can you even believe how perfectly they are spaced between my two windows?? Seriously PERFECT!
All you need is one person and one button to operate, and the GLM 15 measures in seconds. AMAZING!
My husband wanted to take a stab at it too! He was impressed to say the least.
I can't wait to use this handy little laser when hanging curtains and frames and shelves for my new baby's room! Let the fun begin!
Don't you want this hand laser measure tool? Do you know someone who would love it?

DIY: No Sew Thanksgiving Burlap Table Runner

Thanksgiving is fast approaching! This is the first table runner I have ever made or used, and I think it's the begining of many table runner to come. It's so easy to make, incredibly cute, and it fills my home with the Holiday spirit! I adapted this runner from On Sutton Place. Here's what I did.


Supplies:
1.5 yards of burlap = 54" long runner
3 yards of ruffle
Hot glue gun

Directions:
-I cut my burlap table runner 16" wide. That means you have enough burlap left over to make two additional runners, or you could use the extra burlap to make the runner longer - just sew two ends together, right sides together.

-Fray the edges of the burlap along the sides by pulling out strings. I pulled out about 4 long strings on each side.

-I cut 6 pieces of ruffle - 18" long.

-Glue the ruffles onto the burlap in rows, leaving an inch of ruffle hanging over the sides. Fold the extra ruffle over the back and glue down for a clean edge.  Follow the directions here for more information.
