Spent some time today working on my website. Yep, it's pretty basic, but it's a start. I plan to spend some more time with it, but figured I should give my new blog a whirl, too.
Anyway, I have a few blogs that I enjoy checking out and found a cute little tutorial on one of my favorites, thecottagehome. This project is similar to another I had done in the past. So, I thought I would give it a try. My pics are below. This quick project involves turning a double-sided place-mat into a throw pillow. I decided to make a matching set. Currently, I'm thinking of doing throw pillows for several holidays, but tweaking it as a friend suggested (thanks, Heidi), to reduce the amount of storage space needed to pack them away. Perhaps adding a flap, buttons, snaps, or a zipper on a side or back would work? Plus, getting them AFTER the holidays on CLEARANCE would save even more money (thanks again, Heidi). As it was, I made TWO pillows for less than the cost of ONE similar pre-made one I could have purchased at the same store I bought the place-mats at.
Check out my pillows below.

My name is Candie. Many labels describe me including wife, mom, friend, and independent consultant. However, alone, none of them capture all that I am or love and there are too many to list. Some of my likes include cooking, crafting, and creating. Reading, camping, and spending time with my family also bring me joy. I love my life...
