weekend project: daisy patch jeans!

weekend project: daisy patch jeans!

Happy Friday! A couple of weeks ago we showed you how to make a daisy jacket, and today we're showing you how to embellish jeans with daisy patches, too! (There's no such thing as too many daises, right?!;) This is a fun way to turn plain jeans into something special and unique and bring a little bit of spring with you wherever you go all year round. Here's how you can make your own...

You'll need:
jeans
- daisy patches
- sewing needle
- thread scissors

weekend project: daisy patch jeans!

Here's how...
1. Lay pants flat, and place daisies where you'd like to sew them. You can hold them in place with pins, or use a pen to mark a dot.
2. Use needle & thread to sew daises in place.

Aren't they so fun?! Have a great weekend, all!

12 Years of Oh Joy!

This month, we celebrate 12 years of Oh Joy! When I started this blog (and my business) 12 years ago, I never expected to have a business that was so connected to a community of people through the Internet! I never thought I'd make real, live friends through it. I never thought I'd connect with people all over the world and get to share my vision with complete strangers. I never thought that it would give me the opportunity to create something from nothing and create a job I truly love doing every day.

In celebration, I'm looking back at the last 12 years to show how things have changed and evolved and grown (both personally and professionally) in the last decade. This is a long post (but a fun one). So I hope you'll hang out and read along...

back to school for parents...

back to school for moms...

“Back-to-school” usually means an exciting time in kids’ lives to meet new friends, new teachers and get back into the daily routine of learning and growing. However, that shouldn’t be limited to our children! Rather than waiting for a January New Year's resolution, I find that sending my kids back to school inspires me to go back to school myself to keep learning and growing. In partnership with Acer, here are some ways I'm going "back to school" this fall, too...
