~ DIY... the speedy fast kind ~

I am no DIY wiz by any stretch of the imagination
I like things done
speedy FAST
10 minutes max for me kidda FAST...
tool of choice
{a million thanks to the genius who invented this tool...but after years of using I still manage to burn myself}
I could never quilt...takes toooooo long
.....unless I could use my glue gun? on second thought it just won't work!
So this is what I whipped up the other day
for my daughters room
not perfect by any means
but kinda cute and so easy to do
the stool was a cheapo from Ikea....
I called the original stool ugly because we had used it for painting and
it was covered with splashes of colour
{ sorry if you are one of the millions that own one of these stools.... yours is really not ugly...mine was}

now for a real DIY project
I thought this was kinda cute
borrowed from Once Wed DIY project file
{please check it out for details on entire project}

I think I could do this one
no sewing involved
looks speedy
is adorable
and those cupcakes...
could someone send me over a few!?

In fact I am going to give it a try
Wish me luck

Happy Friday to you all

Hi Koralee,
Thanks for entering my giveaway.

Okay I love the hot glue gun. I am looking for one on ebay right now. Between guns, and that is no fun.

The thought of making a quilt with it makes me laugh out loud. Hubby thinks it's weird that I keep laughing when I'm sitting here reading.
