Blog Swap: {The Girl Creative}

Today I've got a great blog swap for you! Diana from "The Girl Creative" is here to share just what a creative gal she is!

.....................


Hello!!!! It's Diana from The Girl Creative! I'm so excited to be guest posting at Sew Dang Cute today. It's always so much fun taking over someone’s blog and making new friends. :)

Here are somethings you may (or may not) want to know about me:

  • I'm a Jesus lovin' girl who happens to be married to a hunky police officer and together we have 2 very silly little girls.
  • I L.O.V.E fountain soda....diet coke to be exact. I can drink it at any given time of the day.
  • Sometimes I'm random
  • I love to laugh but love to make other people laugh even more.
  • I've always lived in NY and have only had 3 addresses in my whole life.
  • I love making homemade cookie dough and then eating it.
  • My favorite TV shows are Lost, Flash Forward and Chuck.

About the blog: At The Girl Creative I blog about little crafty projects that I do around the house. I'm kind of like a Jill of all trades, master of none type of girl. I like to try my hand at just about anything crafty and if my attempts come out decent enough, then I share them over at TGC. If not, I pretend I've been too busy to do anything productive. (wink wink).


  • Every Monday at TGC we have a fun linky party called Just Something I Whipped Up where my readers can link up to projects they've been working on.
The Girl Creative
  • Every Tuesday we host Teach Me Tuesday where our readers submit tutorials to share and I post them dubbing them as an official "Girl Creative"


  • On Fridays we have a super cool party called New Friend Friday. It's a great way to make some new bloggy friends and to gain exposure for your blog. You may even get a few new followers while you're at it and who doesn't love that?




We also have a Giveaway Guide for people to list their current giveaway. Each month a new list is generated and bloggers can link up.





When I'm not hosting blog parties and avoiding laundry I do blog design so if you are in need of a bloggy makeover, I'm your girl. :)

Okay, enough of my babbling, let's show you some fun projects I've worked on in the past. My most recent creation is 2 little dresses I made for my girls. I just learned about shirring and had to give it a whirl. They came out cute, I think.


Trying to keep my daughter's artwork on display, I made these adorable personalized clipboard from dollar store supplies


Needing to soothe (and buff) that sore and dry winter skin, I made this sugar scrub that absolutely works like a charm:



Needing to feed my addiction for blowing off housework, I sewed up this little pleated purse just because:




Still avoiding housework, here are some ruffled dish towels and some washable swiffers. Of course I felt justified in my slacking off because I DID make stuff that would be helpful once I finally got myself moving! That has to count for something, right?






Thanks so much for letting me come and share a bit of my world with you. I hope you come by The Girl Creative and join in on all the fun. :)
