I Heart Etsy - Sketch Book

I've been browsing Etsy in search of a sketch book. I like to have a book with me at all times where I can doodle and sketch random ideas that come to at the most diverse times. Finally I made my purchase and I got this super cute journal/sketch book in pink and green. I love all the details, the tie, the tiny beads on the spine, the colors and the size. I can't wait to get it!


In my search I found many good choices in different sizes and materials. Here are a few of the ones I like.

At this time of the year we want to wear something unique to the family reunion, the office party, or just to feel special for no reason. Today I had put together a collection of accessories that add that special touch to your outfit. There's something for each age and they all feature flowers.

DIY - Iron-on Transfer Napkins

This is a simple DIY project I did to dress my Thanksgiving table. I got the inspiration and steps from the Design Sponge Blog. All you need is a printer, a selection of pictures or drawings, iron-on transfer sheets, and iron and plain napkins.

I chose pictures of pies to go with the Thanksgiving theme, a different picture for each napkin. I got the napkins at my local IKEA store. Once printed, I cut each one of the images.

Following the directions on the iron-on transfer sheets box, I placed the pictures on the napkins. Here are the six different napkins I did.

After a few simple steps the project is done and the table ready to set.
