How I met Stacy, a talented DIY girl who has more projects up her sleeve.
While attending Creative Estates, I got to meet several bloggers I have featured here. What a treat. I was also able to meet many bloggers I’ve had in my FFF. (future feature file) AND meet so many that are now added to that FFF.
While walking into the hotel, I hear someone screaming my name. I turn to see a car load of some of my favorite Utah bloggers! And because they have BIG cars in Utah, you know it was stuffed full of bloggers! I knew all of them but one sweet gal stuffed in the back. Stacy. She handed me her cute card. Once I got home I realized she was already in my FFF. Cute girl. Best skin and hair ever.
This girl is handy! Not only is she gorgeous, she knows her way around the garage. I’m sure she said what kind of saw she used for this frame……a skill saw? A jig saw? Who cares……….she made it. Anything with those shapes, I LOVE!
During our last night, I got some “one on one time with her. Love her. She was telling me about Better Homes and Gardens coming to her home…..I think for her Master Bedroom??? But really what they should be showing is this lamp she made. Seriously, is there anything a Utah girl can’t do? She drew all those cute paisley’s, then painted them, then cut all that wood, stained it and made a lamp out of it. Pottery Barn’s got nothing on her.
You know she’s a girl after my own heart if she finds ugly furniture and makes it pretty. One of my favorite things to do…….look at before and afters. She has a full tutorial on how she did the top. See what you can do with a little elbow grease and paint? Who needs those over priced furniture stores?
Here’s another lamp made from wood scraps…….but round. Very very cute! Love the fabric, love the color! I’m sure if she was my neighbor, she would make whatever I wanted……yep, sure of it. Well there ya have it. I would love to show you more and write more……..because she is such a cutie, but I am chaining to my computer doing a bit of work for The Creative Connection.
I hope you’ll all head over to her site and leave her LOTS of comments. Surprise her! Then she’ll think I’m pretty cool and isn’t that what it’s really about?
If you leave me a comment, I’ll enter your name for the monthy drawing of a Lisa Leonard Necklace.
