DIY Sleeping Baby Sign

Hi friends! I'm back today with another simple DIY for all you new and expecting mamas (or friends of new and expecting mamas). While visitors and packages are nice to get when you have a new little bundle, sometimes their arrival can throw everything out of wack (especially if you have dogs). This sign is a simple way to let everyone know that baby is sleeping! To make one yourself, head over to Something Turquoise

DIY Pet Portrait Pillow

Hi friends! I'm back with another fun DIY for all you pet lovers. I’m gunna get a bit sappy here but, have you ever had a pet that you felt was your soulmate? Well, I have. His name was Beamer and he was the cutest blue eyed boy I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I know it sounds silly but ever since my son was born I have told him about his “big brother Beamer”. In my sons room I have two portraits of our current dogs hanging on the wall but I thought the other day that I should have something with Beamer on it too. That’s where the idea of this pillow was born. For the full tutorial head over to the Something Turquoise blog.

DIY Kids Art Magnets

If you’re a parent, you no doubt have a collection of “artwork”. No I don’t mean from a gallery or from your favorite artist, I mean made by your kid(s). It’s nice to have but WHAT do you DO with it all? I’ve seen lots of great ideas online but I wanted a more functional use. So that’s where the idea for today’s DIY was born! I’m a lover of crafts but recently my crafts have took on a more functional form, like today’s. I’ll be showing you how to make your own magnets using the artwork of your little Picasso. Head over to Something Turquoise for the full tutorial.

DIY Felt Color Matching Activity

Hi friends! I'm back with another DIY for all you mama’s who are running out of activities for your toddler during quarantine. My little guy just turned 2 a few weeks ago and lately he is OBSESSED with colors. He points out everything and lets me know its color. His favorite water cup is now just referred to as “blue” and his beloved toy leaf blower is now called “red black”. He’s also SUPER into matching things up lately. So I wanted to make something that incorporated both colors and matching and these little felt popsicles were just the thing! You can find the full tutorial over on Something Turquoise

DIY Framed Stocking Holder

Happy Holidays friends! I’ve been on the hunt for new stocking holders for YEARS but I’m pretty picky about my holiday decor because I want it to last at least several years. Then the other day I found some from West Elm that I loved, but I didn’t love the $45 price tag. So I did what any DIY-er would do and said “I could make that!” and I did (for only about ten dollars a piece)! And now I’m going to show you how! Head over to Something Turquoise for the full tutorial.

DIY Modern Hoop Seating Chart

 So if you didn't know, I have a part time side hustle over at Something Turquoise. I originally found the blog while planning my own wedding and then when I saw that the founder Jen lived in the same city as me I reached out to see if she was hiring and the rest, as they say, is history. Fast forward several years and Jen even started letting me post DIY's on the blog but recently she asked if I'd be interested in doing a wedding DIY which is like such an honor because that is really her specialty. And not to toot my own horn but I created something that I ended up really proud of! If you're looking for a fun modern way to show your guests to their seats, you wont want to miss this DIY Modern Hoop Seating Chart
