3 Ideas For a Girls Craft Party

I received product from Deflecto in exchange for hosting a Tryazon Party, but all opinions are my own.

It is no secret that I love crafting and craft organization, so when I had an opportunity to review a new line of craft organization products AND get crafty with a few of my girlfriends, I jumped at the chance. If you have not heard of Tryazon, it is a website dedicated to getting innovative products into people’s hands, in fun settings like this. They offer excellent product samples and savings for all who participate.

Plan the ultimate Girl's Craft Night with these 3 projects and craft storage organizers from Deflecto!

First let me tell you about the organizers. Deflecto creates storage products that help people stay organized at home, work, or on-the-go. Deflecto’s products have clear sides, allowing you to be able to see what is stored inside. They all work together to make the ultimate craft room!

Tips on Installing Peel and Stick Glass Tile

Aspect Tile provided the back splash tile kit for this project, but all opinions are my own.

We recently updated our kitchen for the One Room Challenge. One of the things we did was replace the outdated tile back splash with Aspect Peel & Stick glass tiles. These tiles are available in metal, stone, glass, and wood and will fit in with any style of room.

This was my first experience with tiling, so I did not want to deal with grout. This product was easy to install; I did it in a few hours over a weekend.

How to Use and Store Vinyl Scraps

If you are a hard core crafter, then you probably save all your scraps to use in other projects. Today I am going to show you how I store my scraps of vinyl and how I used them to decorate a makeup caddy. If you are a 90's girl like me, then you probably had a Caboodles. I actually still have mine and use it to hole my makeup. When I saw that Caboodles recently introduced a new DIY one, I was inspired to decorate my old one with fun 90's images.

How to Replace a Ceiling Light Fixture

Our house was but in the 60's, so we have those unattractive globe lights in our kitchen and hallway and they just have not been high on our list of priorities to update. A couple months ago, we ran across the most fabulous light fixture at Black Dog Salvage that was perfect for the entry hall! Of course, it did not fit perfectly (because nothing ever does in an old house) but I am going to show you how we made the light work.

How to Replace a Ceiling Light Fixture

First off, if you have never heard of Black Dog Salvage, which was made famous on the show Salvage Dawgs,  please go look it up. We are fans of the show and since the warehouse is only a couple hours away from us in Roanoke, VA we decided to take a day trip up there to look around. They have EVERYTHING you could ever want as far as architectural salvage, plus they also have a shop where they sell finished pieces made from salvaged items.
