Adorable Spring Pillow {Keeping It Simple}

Hello friends!

What an exciting day!  We are signing papers closing on our home this morning, and the moving truck arrives tonight!  I am excited, exhausted, and stressed all at the same time! But I can't wait to sleep in our new home for the very first time tonight.  Hopefully a lot gets done between now and then!

Today, Kaysi from Keeping It Simple is here sharing a very sweet spring pillow.  Kaysi is one of the sweetest bloggers I know!  You might know that I have a pillow obsession, so I love this fun tutorial!

Hi!!  I'm Kaysi from Keeping it Simple
I'm so excited to be here today!  I love Alison's blog!  She never ceases to amaze me with the crafts that she comes up with!!!

One of my favorite things to make are pillow covers.  I love to make one for each season, they are easy to make and easy to switch out each season.  Now that spring is here, it's time to have bright colors and flowers every where :).  So I made this pillow to brighten up my living room.

This is how I made it:
1) I had an extra crib sheet, so I used that for the white fabric.  I cut three pieces, one for the front and then two for the back.  I cut them 24"x15", 14"x15" and 16"x15".
2) Then I cut out 4x4 squares and then ironed them onto fabric interfacing.
3) Using my CAMEO, I cut some flowers out of the fabric.
Here are the flowers all cut out.  I wish I would have made them an inch bigger...

Wednesday’s Wowzers: Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

After a long day at Disneyland today, we are all tired and sore, but 100% happy.  We have decided that it takes loads of work to have loads of fun!  Of course as I see Little Man sleeping peacefully, snuggled up with his favorite Mickey Mouse stuffed animal, I know it was all worth it.  Memories were made today.

This has been quite a week.  After celebrating at the happiest place on earth here in California, I will be shifting gears pretty quickly as I fly to Utah to honor my sweet grandmother who passed away on Sunday.  Although she will be missed dearly, I feel such complete happiness and gratitude to think of the legacy she left us--her 8 children, 43 grandchildren, 110 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild.  Sweet Grandma was the best person I've ever known.  So in the midst of heartache, I feel completely grateful for the life she lived.

This time of year really does make me want to snuggle my loved ones a little bit closer.

Now on to some creative inspiration!!  Lately I feel like I am constantly drooling.  There is just not enough time before Christmas to make all of these projects!!

Here are some of my favorite ideas this week:

I am swooning over this pointsetta pillow from Sweet C's Designs.  I love a great Pottery Barn knockoff, and Courtney created something truly beautiful here!

I have always loved this scripture, and I can't wait to print my very own from Jones Design Company!  What a lovely way to decorate for Christmas this year!

Delia Creates constantly amazes me.  I love that she created her own family game using a bi-fold foam board!  What a great Christmas gift for the family!

This DIY paper tree (an Anthro knockoff) is an incredibly clever idea!   Go check out The Wonder Forest for the full tut!

To begin with, this date night basket is beyond darling!  I mean the embroidered initials??  SO CUTE!  I'm lovin' that burlap too.  But I love what's inside even more!  Miss Lovie created all sorts of date ideas to include in this basket.  Wouldn't this make a great Christmas gift for your husband?!

One word:  YUMMY!!  These cookies would be fun and festive for any kind of holiday get-together!  My mouth is watering thanks to Something Swanky!

More pillows?!  Yes, more pillows!  I'm just blown away by The 3t6h Avenue.  These letter to Santa pillows are absolutely darling!!
