DIY Wax Paper Valentine's Banner

I make a small portion off of these links at no additional cost to you.

I went a little out of the box with this DIY Wax Paper Valentine's Banner, but I'm super happy with the way it came out. I did use the sewing machine for mine, but if you're from the no-sew camp, you can totally use glue. Check out the tutorial below.

This living room of ours has been a weird challenge...but I totally did it to myself. I want to keep just cooler-toned colors in here, so it's my one room I don't use any red in. That presents a bit of a challenge for both Christmas and Valentine's decor. To keep it fairly neutral, I tend to gravitate to whites. This wax paper Valentine's banner works well for the space, though...it started out as something else, but I'm really happy with the end result.

Vintage Craft Room Organization

This post for Vintage Craft Room Organization is sponsored by Hobby Lobby.

My new crafting/studio space is finally coming together. A trip to Hobby Lobby helped me complete all of the organization for this space...while still keeping the vintage feel I was going for. And, I was able to keep my craft room storage budget under $100. 
Vintage Craft Room Organization
When one decides to take on a major room overhaul shortly after the spendy-ness of the holidays, one's spouse may raise {his} eyebrow and say something along the lines of "how much is this going to cost"? That line was more like a challenge to me, y'all. Using some items I already had on hand and shopping the sales at Hobby Lobby brought my grand total under $100 for all of the storage needs in this area. Because...let's be honest, it's alllll about the storage in a craft room.
