A Tour Through (Southern) Blogland

Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia asked us to participate in the Tour Through Blogland that’s making the rounds right now, and of course we were happy to join the fun.   She’s always been one of our favorites, and we’re constantly amazed at how she combines beauty and thrift in everything that she does.

Here’s how this works:  we’ll answer a few questions about what we’re working on (and how we decide what we’re working on!) in this post, and then introduce two of our favorite bloggers.  They’ll take a turn at sharing on their blogs next Monday, and then they’ll nominate their favorite bloggers (and so on, and so on, and so on!).

•Welcome to 11 Magnolia Lane•

1. What am I working on? (Amy)

Everything!   We just moved into a new house this spring, and everywhere I turn there’s a project waiting for me (read about our new home HERE).  I decided with this house to be more focused, so I am trying to work on just one room at a time. It helps maintain my sanity!  I just finished my daughter’s room and am thrilled with how it turned out (see it HERE).

Tutorial: How to Create Round Vinyl Monograms Using the Silhouette CAMEO

 I love round monograms, but could never figure out how to make one using my Silhouette CAMEO.  All of the circular monogram fonts that I found had to be purchased…not that $20 is a big deal, but I figured there must be a less expensive way to create the same look.  So, here's my "hack" using an … [Read More...]
