Happy Mother’s Day to our 4 moms

Posted in Uncategorized on May 10, 2009 by katiejessen

Happy Mother’s Day to our 4 (yes 4) mothers! We love you all and thank you for your support and love. Now that I’m a mommy, I understand what you’ve been through (well at least a little, we haven’t come close to teenage years yet!).  This is my first time to celebrate with Oliver and I’ve had the hardest time thinking about how I wanted to celebrate. Last night I finally thought of something, I want to go out for ice cream. That is such a treat for me because Chris is always full after dinner and I ALWAYS have room for dessert. Next year, I’m sure I’ll have a list of ideas to give you Chris (I feel like I’m still figuring out this mommy thing and one more year will do it). Thank you for wanting to celebrate me babe!

Slipcovered Lampshade

Posted in Uncategorized on May 4, 2009 by katiejessen

I found a lampshade at a garage sale for $1 but it looked better in my friends house so we traded. I decided to give this shade a little interest for my craft table….loving the funky fabric for constant inspiration….

Before

Materials needed:   Lampshade, Fabric, Elastic, Sewing Machine, Iron

1. Fold over top edge of fabric and press with hot iron. Gradually sew elastic into crease without sewing onto the elastic.

2. Sew two edges together, right sides together (stop before crossing over elastic).

3. Pull elastic and test on shade to ensure it fits.

4. Sew the remaining edges and cross over elastic to hold  into place

5. Place on shade…now you have a new look.

* Notice I didn’t hem the bottom edge because I’m loving the torn look lately.
