I have been thinking a lot about my blog, an the direction I want to take it in. I have been making a lot of video DIY tutorials, and a few blog postings, the I have yet to fully edit, and ready for posting.
The In-Laws are coming in, 10am tomorrow, and staying a few days, I am dreading it…. its good to be such a long weekend, and even longer, with this now in the works. By noon, tomorrow, you can offically say that ‘The poo has hit the fan.’ ……… I can not wait till Tuesday!
It is almost 4am, on the east coast, and I install awake… Come on sheep! ~ Until next time – Ami
I am sitting here, on the couch, what is left of our green micro Swede couch, what is not in storage, already, that is. I am staring at a Huge Mound of packing tape to my right, as I am surrounded by plastic and cardboard boxes, alike. I have my blue book, here with me, also, so that I can number, label, and know what is being packed in what box; sometimes I hate my organization skills, sometimes. Ugh… I just finished the 2 loads of dishes, lunch is in the microwave, and I am to pack what I can, till my Husband gets home from work, late tonight. . . Right after I finish re-working my 3 month calendars, and writing a terrified that I have been putting off. Have a great Saturday!! Goal up some sun, on the 1st day of fall, for me!! Oh, I have a wreath to make, and post the tutorial here, too! ~Ami
I’ve been contemplating getting a set of flower fairy lights for quite some time now. But then I decided that making a set would be more fun
I knew that all I needed were a set of plain fairy lights and flowers. I could have bought pre-made fabric flowers that actually looked like the real thing, but I wanted to be a little more creative.
I then had to decide what to make the flowers out of… there were so many options! Paper? Fabric? and if so, what type?? – I very quickly decided that fabric was the way to go since I wanted these lights to last a little while.
The only fabric I could think of that would be stiff enough and allow enough light to pass through was tulle, so off I went to get some to experiment on.
As it turns out – SUCCESS! Tulle flower fairy lights are go! – So here I show you how you can make your own
Now repeat that as many time as you like. Place the flowers on all the lights or just a few to add some colour, either way, it looks pretty cute.
I tested them out on the staircase and I think they look pretty friggin’ awesome.I have an ulterior motive for creating these lights. ❤ ~Ami
Cut two rectangles of each colour and two rectangles of tulle. The flower I have made used 38cm x 25.5cm sheets but it doesn’t really matter, just so long as the pieces are all rectangular and of the same size.

2. Start to arrange your cardboard rings around the lid until you happy with the pattern. I made a simple one by mixing 1″ ring, 1.5″ ring and 2″ ring. This is the result…
3. You can paint the rings but I skip the painting job and add some bling-bling to it by glue on some leftover sequins…I bought this sequins earlier for my mom to add some on her dinner outfit…Well. that’s another story.
