DIY PROJECT: GIANT ARM-KNIT BUNNY

This giant arm knit bunny is soooo cute! You can buy a kit that includes everything you need to make one large bunny (except for the stuffing) or you can buy only the pattern. The bunny will make a great friend for a little girl or boy and will look lovely in a nursery or kids room. Unfortunately my son is too old for it ..

HOW TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL GALLERY WALL

I LOVE this art collection gallery wall in designer Julie Leach (owner of clothing line Chance) stunning Venice Beach home. The art works are beautiful and I love how the frames are arrangement. To create a similar gallery wall it is best to think about how to arrange the frames before putting any nails in your wall.
