Hi There! I am so excited to be here on Rosy Red Buttons today! I love Camilla's detachable coat skirt and her new "canopy bed" is fabulous! She is so talented!

Michelle, from A Little Tipsy here, taking the wheel for the day!

Nope not drunk (what a relief you will not be taking your tour with a drunk driver), I may or may not be a bit clumsy though.

A little about me, I am a SAHM with one crazy 3 year old boy, a 5 month old baby boy, and a big geek for a husband. I love keeping busy and sharing all my projects and adventures whether they be home decor, holiday projects, activities for the kiddos, or discovering how to get permanent marker off granite counter tops. Turn to me for projects you can do during nap time for less money than lunch out.
So, enough about are a few of my favorite projects as of late.

Paper Mache Eggs
with secret ingredient...water balloons

Ruching Re-fashion
in 10 Minutes

Flower Monogram Frame
secret ingredient...packing tape

Free Printable Behavior Charts for your kiddos (girl & boy version)

I just started a new link up party for projects that cost $5 or less. I would love to have you come link up and share your projects!

Well, I guess that about wraps things up. Thanks to Camilla for swappin' it up and thanks to you for letting me be your tour guide today. Watch your step on the way out and don't forget to come visit soon!
Thanks again for being here Michelle, go visit her site, you won't be disappointed!

I am SO excited to have Kristyn with Good Gravy Crafts here today! She has such a fabulous blog and SO many good ideas. You should totally check it out! Here she is:
Happy Friday Rosy Red Readers! I am so happy to be here on fabulous Camilla's blog. I was so honored when she emailed me to do a switcheroo! I am Kristyn from Good Gravy Crafts, I know silly name but it's got meaning but it has nothing to do with turkey or sauce (for the Italians out there or my friend Jenny).
It's from an expression my hubby's cousin uses, whenever she would say it I would chuckle. Now here I am a few years in the blogging world and I have yet to really get myself out there. I am looking forward to "meeting" new bloggy friends and finding inspiration along the way.

Today I am showing you all something brand hubby calls it the "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego Wreath". Do you remember that show?

He does not always "get" what I am doing when I come in the house with things like a 1963 Atlas from the thrift store but I assure him "it's going to be good, don't worry!" He shakes his head and walks away, ha!

Here it is!
My version of a Sunburst Mirror incorporating the Book Wreath that everyone has so wonderfully been making lately.

I love that I happened to get the New England States showing, we are in cold MA!!! It's on our dining room wall and as much he makes fun...I think the hubster loves it. I know my Little Lady is proud, whenever people come over she says, "Wanna see the BIGGEST sun my Mom ever made?"

It was pretty easy to do and I am thinking I may through together a tutorial soon. Now I just have to find something to put on the other wall!

Camilla...thanks so much for hosting me, I look forward to having some Rosy Red Button readers stop by the Good Gravy!

Hope everyone has a great weekend, I am off to go dog sledding! Can't wait!
Thanks for being here Kristyn! LOVE that wreath! Be sure to check out her blog here and follow along in her crafting adventures. :) Thanks again!

So excited to have Allison with Fab Rehab Creations here today! Allison has a super fun blog full of AWESOME thrift store finds, and I love me some thrift store. She is also a totally fun person and its been fun to get to know her, so bonus! :) SO jealous of her she is!
Hello Rosy Red Buttons Followers, Friends and Readers! An extra special thank you to Camilla here at RRB for inviting me over to her lovely abode!
I’m Allison…new blogger, fun-loving mom of 3 boys, occupational therapist and now, thrifty furniture rehabber (is "rehabber" a word?). I'm the one with hair ;)
Although I’m fairly new to Blogland, I am having a blast meeting new friends and checking out gobs of fun and fabulous projects ! I started up the Fab Rehab Creations blog in September 2010 after I with painting, rehabbing and upcycling furniture. I’ve been known to hit up Goodwill and other thrift shops more than once a week “just to check” and see if anything is new… my husband thinks I have an addiction, but because I rarely spend more than $15 for a piece of furniture, he can’t complain too much. Here are a few of my favorite projects:
My "New" Kitchen Table

My first dresser (I heart dressers):
My thriftiest find beloved $5.00 sideboard

And finally, this little side table:

I have more posts full of thrifty furniture turned fabulous. If you like what you've seen here, head on over to my blog and join the fun! Would love to have you!
Thanks again for being here Allison! Be sure to head on over to Allison's blog Fab Rehab Creations and follow along!

I'm so excited to welcome Jonie of Just Between Friends. Man this girl can craft. We actually met in college and have had fun being friends post married life.

If you remember these clocks, you'll know we made them together!
You have to check out her blog and say hi!

Take it away Jonie:

I'm so excited to be here at Rosy Red Buttons, and I'm even more excited that Camilla will be taking over my blog! She has so many incredible projects. Have you seen her nursery? Of course you have.  I love it! It makes me want to re-do my daughter's room....almost. :) That's a ton of work.
Now, if you don't mind, Camilla, I am going to take over your blog.
Let's get down to the nitty gritty....

I'm Jonie from Just Between Friends. I am married to a man that loves to fish and we have a 17 month old little girl that seems to always keep us busy.I am pretty new to blogging. I started my blog just this last August, and I love it! It has been such a great motivator for me as well as a creative outlet.
Some of my favorite projects I've done are:
#1. Scrap Wood Shelves My daughter loves to read and I wanted a way that I could store her books without her needing to throw them off the shelf to see the cover. That is how I came up with this idea.
She still seems to need to throw her books everywhere, but at least she knows what book she is grabbing before she throws it.

#2. Skirt to Hat Transformation I made this hat for my sister using an old skirt that she was going to throw away. I am really pleased with the way it turned out!

#3. Front Room Makeover I wanted to surprise my husband with a room makeover while he was out of town. I am pretty sure that when I told my husband I had a surprise for him he didn't imagine this.  He of course likes the way it looks.  (I don't think he would dare tell me otherwise)

One of my favorite parts about this room is this pillow. I made it from the skirt my sister wore at my wedding. You can read all about how I made the pillowshere.

I think that is enough to get you started in my blog. I really would love for you to stop by and follow along in my many crafting adventures.


Thanks so much for having me over! You can have your blog back now :)

Oh, ANYTIME Jonie, you rock! Be sure to check her out here and follow her!
And if you are interested in being apart of Friday Flip, please email me at Thanks again Jonie!

Today I'm excited to start a new game on Rosy Red Buttons. (Ok, I confess it's really not a game, but a blog swap, but calling it a game makes it SO much cooler...) I'm super excited to have Charlie from Attempting Aloha today to take over my blog and amaze you. Because she is amazing. Check her out! Here she is:

Aloha! Welcome to beautiful Oahu. It's sunny and in the 80's today, so pull up a beach towel and play in some waves!
I started my Attempting Aloha blog in October of last year as a way to help me think through the many home renovation projects we have going on in our $.5 mil+ (I'll round down to keep you from having a heart attack from sticker shock at our prices here) 3 bedroom, 1600 sq ft., foreclosure fixer upper. But then I started leaking my crazy crafting endeavors into the blog as well, and it's just been a blast getting to know so many fun bloggers.

If you've ever been to Oahu, you probably experienced the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet. Over 500 vendors with flowers, shells, swimsuits, and all kinds of other wonderful treasures. So in honor of one of my favorite places to spend my leisure time here, I've started Swap 'n' Meet Saturdays! This is my way of getting to know other blog readers and to give my poor readers a break and let them get to know someone new. ;)

As a newbie blogger, I get so excited when I think I have a truly original idea pop up or a knock-off no one has attempted yet. Then I met Camilla and her blog. At first I thought she was stealing my ideas and not giving me credit, and I was a little miffed...then I noticed the dates, and some of them were posted before mine! It was so hilarious!Then I just had a blast looking through her blog and seeing so many things I've either done similarly or have plans to do shortly. We became "kindred spirits" as my other bff Anne (ya know, of Green Gables) would say.
Here are what the Attempting Aloha lovelies are loving the most:
My personalized PB Union Station knock-off clock made from a sad little $3 Walgreens clock:

This set off a chain of clock designs (some of which I still have yet to post!!).

Personalized teacher subway art clock I made for my daughter's teacher at Christmas. :)

And, of course, since I have girls, there's bound to be frilly stuff around. Like my version of the PB Kids lamp (which was also the inspiration for Camilla's nursery lamp!).

And because I'm just a drippy, sentimental kinda gal (don't even get me started on Hallmark commercials...), I went and made a pillow out of my wedding dress and one of my husband's white button-up Sunday shirts. This one was a top 10 pick at the CSI Project in last week's "white" theme.

So if you love girly and ruffles, come check out my blog. There seems to be a lot of ruffles and flowers going on around our house lately!There's also a lot of hammers, nailguns, drills, and other things most girly girls don't dare tackle! And I desperately need help making some decisions along the way, so if you like to put in your 2 cents, I'm in need of those kinds of friends!!

As a special treat for Rosy Red Buttons readers, I'd love to offer free personalization on any of the clocks on my blog to the first 15 readers to leave a comment. And if you're feeling the aloha, go ahead and check out my site when you get a chance! We love tourists. ;)


Thanks again Charlie for being here and what an awesome deal! You pretty much rock the world. Go and follow her here, she has amazing ideas!  
If you are interested in being apart of Friday Flip and blog swap with me, email me at I'd LOVE to flip with you. Hahahah I crack myself up. But seriously, let's swap! Happy Friday!
