Pretty Toothpaste cover!

I guess I'm still thinking of bathroom as I looked at my ugly tube of toothpaste I thought why not cover it up with some pretty fabric. So that's what I did. I cut a piece of fabric, covered it with clear laminate with about an inch of extra laminate to hold it together.

Now you can leave your tube out and still have it look pretty. And I think once the tube is done you can easily peel off the cover and put it on a new tube.

Woo hoo!

This was super quick....just a few minutes tops!!!!

DIY Makeover: Medicine Chest

Yesterday I wanted to do a little DIY project in my oh so tiny bathroom. Just a little something to make it prettier, something relatively easy and quick. I wanted instant satisfaction. As I looked around, I decided to re-do the inside of my Medicine Cabinet. It was pretty drab and boring......see below...

(BEFORE: Medicine Chest)

So I grabbed some beautiful scrapbooking pages that I recently picked up on a trip to Target. I wish I could tell you the brand but I bought them on clearance because the package was open.

I simply measured the space inside the cabinet, cut the paper and the important part is to laminate the sheets! Otherwise the humidity will obviously make the pages warp. I used the roll of clear laminate that you can pick up at any craft store. To adhere the pages, I used removable double sided tape, because I want to have the option to change it up if I feel the inkling to!
And that was it!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't it look so much better. Then I felt I needed SOMETHING for the door, so I added the 'Hello Lovely'!! Because don't we all want to hear that in the morning! (For that part I laminated the sheet first and then glue gunned the yarn words onto the laminate). Oh, I almost forget to tell you to laminate some paper doiles as well, they look sooo sweet! You can do as much or as little as you want.

I showed my husband what I was doing and he wondered why I would do that for the inside where no one will see it!!!! I said, 'IT'S FOR ME, I WILL SEE IT." Everyday!

So get to it ladies, do it for yourself!!!!

PS-And when you have parties and have the.. 'lets call them curious' guests who peek inside your medicine chest, it will kill them that they cannot compliment you on its beauty, lest they out themselves as a snoop. : )

PSS-- After I finished this project, I viewed Tracy's Inspiration Fascination video on Friday where they were also so timely sharing bathroom inspirations!!! And I went back and added the little TEACUP for my Q-tips! Thanks Tracy.........I love that!!!!

Monday makings........

Well the snow storm was not all that bad, even though it IS FREEZING out!

I'm working on some additional LOVE prints and a PEACE one.
I tried to grab something at the infamous Blackapple update, but not so lucky this time.
I was going to try for a sophie doll, but $90 is a little out of range for this job hunting gal : )
It was fun to watch everything disappear in 3-4 minutes. I'm always amazed. I think the only painting still left was the most expensive one for $700.00.
Off I go......I still have to scan some work and take pics as well.

Happy Weekend!

This photo is just some doodles from when I was sketching out some possible business cards. I now use it as a cover for my binder because I Love all the colors together!

Enjoying my S'days, working on some orders, getting ready for a supposedly big snow storm tonight!
See you Monday!
