Episode 6: Pom Pom Garland (Plus, We’ve Been Keeping a Secret…)

October 19th, 2010

Welcome to Episode 6 of “The DIY Dish!”  While this decorative garland was made for Halloween, the same technique can be used for ANY occasion!  Take a look!

Here are some more photos from this week’s project!

We’d love to see what you are making! Don’t forget to post your photos to our Facebook Fan Page or to Flickr. :)  If you’d like more garland/bunting ideas for your home decor, you might be interested in our latest ePattern called “Adorn.”  It is now available for instant download at www.YouCanMakeThis.com.

We have some really fun and exciting news to share with you! 

Imagine our reaction a little while ago when getting off a phone call with a producer of The Nate Berkus Show!  We can’t quite spill all the details yet, but we can tell you that we will be on his show NEXT Wednesday, October 27th!!

Are we nervous? YES! Are we excited? YES! Do we wonder if we’ll look completely goofy? ABSOLUTELY!  The nice thing at this point is that it has already been taped and now we just wait for the 27th! Yikes!

If you are unfamiliar with Nate Berkus, well, let us just tell ya…He is one amazing designer! So much, that he was THE interior design guru on the Oprah Show for 8 years! He has such a good heart and is just like you would imagine him to be in person – very real and down-to-earth.  We’ll tell you more next week.

Nate Berkus now has his own show and it is full of inspiration!  You will love it! 

We would be so happy to have you be a part of our experience next week!  Click here to check your local listings and to find out what time of the day and which channel it comes on.  Of course, we’re not sure how it will all be pulled together in the end, but you will see a glimpse into our personal lives, a “challenge” Nate gave us, and then finally a segment in New York!  It was our first time being in NY and we LOVED it!


Have a wonderful week everyone!  Which state or country might you be watching The Nate Show from?

    How Cool! We’re having a new dish installed this week so our channels will all be different but one of the first things I look for-after which one is the Disney channel-will be where I can find this show-can’t wait to see you! So awesome!

    I am so excited for you! Can’t wait to see the show.

    Awesome news. I’ll check the station finder so I’ll know where to find Nate in my neck of the woods. So cool that it’s already in the bag and you can sit back and relax and wait for the air date.

    My Mom and I love Nate! Thanks for the head’s up. I checked the listing and she gets the show. I don’t think I do here in Costa Rica but will have to do some more checking. I hope I get it! Maybe I can watch it online.

    Hello there, I found your website via Google even as looking
    for a similar matter, your website got here
    up, it appears to be like great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    Hi there, just became alert to your blog thru Google,
    and located that it is really informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels.
    I will be grateful if you happen to proceed this in
    future. A lot of folks will probably be benefited out of your writing.
