    1. Hi Caren, I’m assuming you mean my crafting videos? There is an x in the right corner by the video where you can make it disappear. These videos are one of the sources that contribute a small income to pay for blog hosting and other fees I have to pay to keep my blog running. I create free content for others that doesn’t make me rich and the money has to come from somewhere. I already have to switch hosts this month because I couldn’t afford my old hosting. There just are certain things that I have to keep doing in order to make some money to be able to keep my website up. Sorry that you are sick of seeing my stuff.
      Merry Christmas!

    I found you on Pinterst and have been hooked on you since! I have champagne taste and beer pocket so I have been decorating off of Craigslist and ebay also but you are much more creative than I. I learn so much on your blog. THANK you so much for such an informative blog and posts. Your is so motivating. I am so many DIY projects now from reading your posts! I LOVE them!! Can you please tell me what size wood beads were used for your kitchen pendants? THANK YOU!

    Hi Julia,
    Thank you for the bead information! I am wondering, did you use a hardwire conversion kit or did you turn the plug in light into a hardwire?
    I have been doing all of your DIY projects since I discovered you. Made numerous tassels, AND I ordered pair of jean rag rugs to make my own throw pillows like the ones in your living room but because they are 24 by 36″ rugs, they come out strange rectangular shape. What size insert did you use for your pillows? THANK YOU!

    1. Hi MJ, I actually have a can light in the kitchen and used a screw in conversion kit in combination with the Target light. There are many different ways you can do this but in my case I had to convert my can light.
      Also my pillows were stuffed with a 20×20 insert even though the pillows are slightly rectangular. It worked.

      1. THANK YOU so much! I can’t believe you personally reply to all of the comments. I’ve learned so much from your blog. You are truly inspiring to those who can’t afford expensive home accessories and furniture. Please don’t change!! Ill let you know how my jean rag pillows turn out!

        Can you please post some links where I can find those decorative boxes you use for your etagere and the bottom of the coffee table? I would also like to know where you got the blue oriental canister, jar. It is so cute!

        I would also like to learn how to

  6. These look incredible! I can’t wait to try your recipe, Julia! Merry Christmas 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Sarah! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
