I’m so happy spring is here, I made a banner to welcome it.
To make your own you’ll need:
– 1/4 yard floral fabric (I knew I would need the perfect floral fabric to execute this project, so I relied on
Bing Image Search and found this dainty daisies pattern from Joel Dewberry. Bingo!)
– 1/4 yard felt
– hot glue gun
– Cricut Iron-on Lite
– wooden dowel
– hello spring download
Step one: Cut floral fabric to desired size. Use hot glue to back with felt. Trim edges.
Step two: Print hello spring download and use razor blade to cut the text out of the iron-on material (I used the Cricut Explore to do the hard work for me). Follow package instructions to iron-on to your fabric.
Step three: Fold about an inch of the fabric on the top over and adhere to the back of the banner with hot glue, leaving a space open for the dowel to slide through. Slide the dowel through and knot twine onto the ends to hang. Hello spring.
I mentioned that ever since Meet Make Do I have made a conscious effort to use Bing for my search needs (I’ve made it the default search function for my phone and computer) and and it’s paying off. Not only because it helped me with the creation of this project, but because of Bing Rewards .
Basically I’m rewarded be for my Internet searches (even the embarrassing ones). Every time I search using Bing, I get points that can be redeemed for useful items like Amazon giftcards. I search so frequently, I was quickly able to earn enough points to purchase the iron-on material needed for this banner. Win!
I’m required to disclose a sponsored partnership between our site and Bing. I have been compensated in exchange for this post in the form of payment, product or experiences.
Maybe it’s because it’s summer or maybe it’s just the plain cheeriness of the color but I’ve been finding myself drawn to all things yellow lately. In fact, I would say it has now bumped green out of my #1 favorite color spot. So as I was browsing for some yellow chairs for our house the other day, I was delighted to find that you could search by color at one of my favorite curated online shops, Fab. In fact, I may have found a little more than chairs that I want to purchase in the happy summer shade.
If you haven’t already, sign up for Fab to start shopping their colorful deals.
I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from party supply shopping enabler, Kelly of Studio DIY.
In case you haven’t heard, yellow is my favorite color of all time and single-color parties are some of my favorites to shop for. What’s a girl to do but create an all yellow party supply shopping guide!? Get ready for a healthy dose of lemon + sunshine, with a hefty dash of gingham. First a little dose of inspiration –

My dear friend mustard yellow recently introduced me to dusty pink and we hit it off right away. We’re now planning a girl’s night out for the latest Twilight movie. Just kidding, I hate Twilight. Sorry you guys, you’ll have to go elsewhere for your shirtless Rob Pattinson pics.
I want this print, large scale, on my wall, stat.

I don’t know why I feel the need to defend mustard yellow. It’s not like it’s my show pony at the state fair. I just don’t feel like I have you all convinced. So the above images are my case for why you need to join the mustard yellow is cool club.
Aren’t those cracked brown buttons on the coat fantastic? It reminds me of one my dad’s old cardigans.
