DIY Wedding Show

 
Had the best time ever speaking at the Rose City Bridal Show last week.  Shared my favorite DIY ideas for weddings, that of course are cheap, cheap, cheap...and easy to make.  Notice the garbage can behind me?  I go dumpster diving while up on stage, and in a skirt too!
 
 
Photographer, Rebecca from www.anikoproductions.com took some AMAZING photos of the showcases I put together for the show.
 
 
Here is a table runner my friend, Annelle Friel and I made together using pages from a book about roses, some scotch tape and hole punch. Turned out great! 
 

Another DIY buddy of mine, Traci Schaller, who creates Vintage DIY wedding decor accessories, made this menu board.  How adorable is this!  And if you haven't gone yet, you must stay at www.balchhotel.com, that is where you'll find some of Traci's finest vintage wedding DIY ideas.  And wait until you meet the owners, Jeff and Samantha.  The nicest ever!

DIY Television


We are going gang busters filming short segments for news broadcasts across the country. Check out www.finditfixitfun.com and get a peek of what we are up too!  Here is a chandelier made from cork, paperclips and a flower wreath form.  The best part, it's all on film of the step by step directions.  25 new DIY ideas.  Whew!

My Recycled Home In Recycle Scene


Did you know that people that have last names that start with the letter Q are related?  Well I don't know if that is true, but when Jen Quiros of http://www.recyclescene.com/ contacted me and asked if she could write a story about my house, The REX Project, I knew she and I had to be related, at least in the family of recyclers.

Click on the link.  The side by side before and after photos are something else!
