Eid Round Up

Eid is just a couple weeks away. Just in case you haven’t started thinking about it yet, I thought to give you some ideas to get you started! Here are some of my faves: I am quite smitten with these Eid cursive straws from Muslamb. What kid… small or big {ehem, as in adults ;)}… wouldn’t love to sip from one of these straws! They would make fun party favors, addition to any […]

Smoothie Gift Kit

Every Eid I enjoy putting together some sort of gift basket for my family. Usually it consists of something sweet in a not so healthy kind of way. This year I’ve decided to take a healthier route. A smoothie kit… sweet but healthy! I’m really excited about this gift kit, and I’m especially excited about my Tiny Prints Eid greeting cards that accompanies the kit! Not only do I love the design […]

Do You Respect Wood? {Wood Coasters}

I respect wood. Do you? Or are you one to leave watermarks on tables? “I respect wood. I revere wood. I’m considerate of wood. “That’s what Larry David said when he was accused of leaving a watermark on Julia Dreyfus’ table. I looove that episode from Curb Your Enthusiasm! So much so that the phrase respect wood keeps replaying in my head since watching that episode. And you will find me randomly asking […]

Once Upon A Eid {Review & Giveaway}

If you are a one stop shopper like me, you are going to love Once Upon A Eid. It’s the place that brings together all of our favorite Eid products from multiple vendors in one place along with mainstream products like the paper pouches and paper straws we all love. It’s a new company that just opened a couple months ago, and it’s already on my go to list as it […]

Upcycled Vintage Earrings Bracelet

Back in December on Facebook, I had shared the upcycled vintage earrings bracelets that Vintage Meet Modern made. I thought they were fabulous, and just had to make one… So I did! All that is needed to make one is some vintage earrings, bracelet blanks, and E6000 glue. Also masking tape or painter’s tape is helpful for certain pieces that don’t want to stay put! First thing is clipping off the earring backings. Then […]

Vintage for Baby {Baby Rag Quilt}

More babies! That means time to whip out some baby blankets… my trademark gift! Or at least I think it has become my trademark gift. Lately it has been all about the rag quilts for me.  I’ve shared a few of the rag quilts I have made in past posts, and here’s a couple more to share. Forget about dealing with a bunch of squares. Thanks to Brieda with a B […]

Ramadan Countdown Calendar

I’m really excited to share my new Ramadan countdown calendar. It consists of an old window. Thirty little mosques. And a little surprise hidden behind each mosque… Glow in the dark moons! Of course I had to turn to my Silhouette to help with this project. Just like the phrases and minarets I used for the Ramadan/Eid window, I found the mosque in the online Silhouette store. To add stiffness to […]

Old Window Ramadan & Eid Decor

I may have not been blogging as often as I would like to, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been creating. Ramadan is just a couple of weeks away, so I had to make sure to share my ideas with everyone. I have been playing around with the idea of creating a Ramadan countdown calendar out of one of the two old windows I have which have made appearances in my […]

Vintage Jewelry Picture Frame

When my friend asked me to decorate her wedding cake for her I came up with a brilliant idea… well at least I thought it was brilliant. ;) I didn’t make the cake; my job was just to decorate it. So other than the love birds cake topper that I made, I decided that I would embellish the cake with some vintage jewelry in a cascading fashion coming down the […]
