Looking for a quick and easy DIY designer pillows?  You need to look no further!  Stenciled pillows are a quick home decor project that are a great alternative to store bought pillows.  Stenciled patterns are the perfect accessory to any room and any style and are also great for the budget.  What a great way to even change up your style throughout the year, including the holidays.

Finding the right pillows for your rooms in your home can sometimes be a real challenge.  This is where creating your own will be such a joy, along with being so much fun!  You choose the style of stencil, paint color, and even fun embellishments such as tassels, studs, and jewels.  The whole thing from start to finish will be a joy.  This would be a great girls’ night, with good friends coming together as a group and bringing a whole lot of creativity!  Check out these stenciled pillow ideas to get your creative ideas flowing by coming with me over to The Cutting Edge Stencils where you will see a full tutorial on how to create some of your own.

Snickerdoodle Bars By Julie Gransee

Being a big fan of Snickerdoodle cookies, I knew the moment I saw these I had to give them a try.  What impressed me most about this recipe is that it is super basic, so no need to run out and buy anything special, just raid your fridge and pantry and bake away!  These are super easy to make and will have your house smelling fabulous in just 10 minutes.

Snickerdoodle Bars

It is time for you to get obsessed with these yummy bars and get to baking!  My hats off to Julie Gransee who I got the recipe from and baked some for my family and friends.  I now get asked quite often for the recipe.  So let me take you on over to Lovely Little Kitchen where you will find this yummy recipe and you can warm the hearts of your family and friends!

I hope you have been inspired today and will feel the joy of being crafty.  I will be at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in Orlando this weekend, May 5th & 6th.  Please stop by the Registration Desk and say hello, I would love to see you!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend, and I will see you back next Saturday with more fun projects and inspiration!
