Make Up Brush Roll...

Zach and I travel.... a LOT! Well, we've slowed down since moving to Georgia (hard to travel when you work all. the. time.), but in the past? A lot. 
Be it an over night trip for an interview (again, happened before he got his residency position) or flying back to Canada to see family....or England to see family...yeah, there was a lot of traveling (from the sounds of it, you'd think we were loaded...we are most definitely NOT).
ANYWAY, the reason I began that ridiculously long rant was to say that I've been wanting something for my make up brushes for quite some time. They always get tossed into my toiletries bag and get smushed... not good because they're good brushes... MAC brushes... that my loving husband bought for me when I was going through my my-skin-is-awful-since-I-gave-birth-and-I-don't-want-to-leave-the-house phase after having Aubrey. He was like, we're going to MAC and you are buying all the make up you need to make yourself feel better! And then I married him all over again :) The End. 


Kidding. 
So I finally took the time to make this yesterday and I'm in love!


The fabric alone is fabulous, but it just turned out so cute!


I used to tutorial from Little Big Girl Studio, and just made it work for my brushes/eyelash curler/mascara/etc . 
Here's the tutorial, you're welcome.


Ain't she purdy?!


Nothing like an early morning photo shoot in some Georgian pine straw to bring out the beauty in something.


I'm linking this sucker up here....

I love that you put that since you moved to Georgia, you guys don't travel that much. You've only been there two months and you're already going to Canada. Goofy kid. ANAWAYS--
Marlene is right Jen. Etsy is a callin'--you are one crafty girl. If I start up my own business, I'll hire you. :)Looking forward to seeing your creation in the flesh!!
And Zach--are you kidding me?!? I guess Jo did just buy me my 'Hi Boots', so I can't complain! x
