Did you celebrate National Donut Day last week? I'm going to be honest and say I had no idea that was even a thing! Of course there were donut photos for days, and I couldn't help but be inspired by this one. The colors scream summer, don't they?   Color Crush | Felicityjane.com I'll share the project I'm making using these colors next week, and if you are inspired to create something with this Color Crush, I'd love to see it! Email me at hello@felicityjane.com or link to your project in the comments.   Have a happy day!   Jeana   Image source | Studio DIY {click through for more photos and a quick tutorial for making your own cute striped donuts}

If you know me, you know that I l.o.v.e black and white. I also have a not so secret obsession, or 'crush' if you will, with color!  {see my color pinterest board for proof}  In my creative process color is usually where I start. So, when brainstorming content ideas for this little blog, I decided that a color series was a must! Welcome, friends to the first installment of 'color crush', a weekly post about a color scheme I'm crushing on! This way, you too can join in my color obsession! {you are welcome!}   color-crush-felicityjane     There are more fun things in the works for Felicity Jane that I'll be sharing in the next couple of months... so be sure to enter your email over there on the side bar to get FJ sent to your inbox. Then you'll be the first to know!   Have a happy day!   image source | flourish cafe

Hi friends! I am super excited to have my friend Lindsey McLaughlin visiting the blog today to share a fun project idea to get you ready for spring!  
DIY Spring Wreath   "I've had my Fall wreath hanging on my door through the winter and thought it was about time to change it up. And who isn't all about welcoming Spring? With hints of warm temperature here and there I am so ready for it to be Spring.  
I believe my husband thinks I can't hold still and I always have to be working on a project. Oh wait. That is the truth. I look forward to Saturdays to work on craft projects. This wreath would be one of them. I was able to sit down and watch a movie while making this. My favorite kind of projects. Here is what you will need to make this wreath."  
wreath_supplies
 
Supplies
  • yarn
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks
  • wreath (styrofoam works too)
  • 1 sheet of felt
  • fabric scissors
 
wreath_detail
  "Wrapping the wreath with yarn: Making this type of wreath is simple. Find the end of the yarn and start wrapping the yarn around the wreath. It takes awhile to wrap the whole thing. That's when a movie comes in handy. Once it's all wrapped, heat up your hot glue gun and add a little dot of glue to the end of the yarn on the back of the wreath. Making the bow: Cut 2 4" strips the long way. Cut a dove tail on both ends of one of the 4" stripes. With the other strip hot glue the ends together to make a loop. Center the loop on top of the dove tail strip. Take the remaining strip of felt (about 1") and wrap around the center of the stacked strips. Fix the bunches from the looped felt so it looks more like a bow. Hot glue the thin strip to the back side. You will need to cut down the strip to glue the other end down. Hot glue to the bottom of the wreath and your wreath is complete! Easy, right?"

Hi there! Remember the 'inspired by' board I shared last week? Well, I have been waiting to share the project it inspired until I could take a few photos with the finished product. Well, today I had to stick close to home and wait for contractors to come and make a few repairs to my house, so I took advantage of being home while the sun was actually still out and snapped a couple of pictures of the FREE Valentine's printables I've been dying to share...   Valentine-Printables-from-Felicity-Jane

I have been working on a fun little project that I'm excited to share soon. Until then, I thought I'd give you a peek at the mood board I created that inspired it all...   heartmoodboard   Ahhh, black and white {my favorite color combo atm!}   So, I'm curious... what inspires you to create?   xo- Jeana   photo credits:  clutch | rug | arrows print
Hi there! I love the Christmas holiday, it's a time for giving, reflection and spreading good cheer! This year I found the 'Goody Goody Gift Swap' where crafters from around the world get a swap mate and exchange a hand made gift. Fun, right? Well, I love paper so I thought I'd create some things that my swap mate could use in her business or hoard for herself. First, a set of  thank you tags wrapped all cozy like in a mason jar with brushed gold confetti... thank you tags Next,  a set of 'thank you' and 'hello' note cards and envelopes wrapped in a gold star bag... and you can't forget the gold pens! notecards wrapped and you can't forget something adorable to seal the back of the envelopes stickers Next is one of my favorite bits... a desk calendar. I designed and printed the calendar on heavy cardstock then cut it out using my Silhouette CAMEO. desk calendar month Then, I printed a few quote pages on vellum and cut those out using the CAMEO too. desk calendar vellum quote Then, I used a couple of office clips to clamp them together and using a paintbrush applied mod-podge to the top so that it would stay together and peel off each month's page as the year goes by. It looks cute propped up on a tiny easel! desk calendar easel I wrapped that up together with a bit of confetti! desk calendar wrapped Because a wise friend of mine said 'the bigger the bow, the better the present!'  I put it all in a box and tied it up with a big black and white striped bow. wrapped box Are you giving handmade this Christmas? xo  - Jeana
