More Etsy Art I Heart

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Oh the gallery wall, we love it so. It seems everyone’s got one these days including us. Last month I featured a group of Etsy artists and today I’m back for more in a new monthly series. Last time many of you suggested favorites in the comments, plus I discovered a few more myself. Enjoy the roundup, and I hope it inspires you to add something new to your collection!

ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape & The Home Depot’s "Ready, Set, Paint" Blog-Hop

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Greetings everyone, this summer I’ll be hosting a a fabulous event in partnership with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot! It’s a Summer Blog Hop where two dozen bloggers will be getting creative with ScotchBlue Tape and the links to all the projects will be found right here – the projects featured will help inspire this year’s painting season! painter's tape, scotchblue painter's tape, tape

I’ve been using ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape for such a long time, it’s my go-to tape whenever I’m working on furniture or painting doors. This brand doesn’t grab like traditional masking tape but sticks just enough to paint perfect stripes or line up hardware – even on top of freshly painted surfaces and it won’t pull up the paint, I love that.3M Tape Projects CG

I started the big summer event with this dresser makeover, click on the image to read the full details using ScotchBlue tape and products purchased at the Home Depot.scotchblue and home depot before and after
