feature friday- come on, ilene!

We’ve all had the experience of hearing the song echo throughout restaurant speaker, left to hum the infamous lyrics for the rest of the day, if not week. When I stumbled across this blog, the name alone automatically grabbed my attention and had me singing that song once again.

Come on, Ilene is an adorable blog with creative and inspiring ideas all throughout. Whether it’s one of her tutorials on sewing a Seersucker Strawberry Skirt or a ‘how to’ on making a tasty treat, Ilene is inventive and worthy of checking out!

And hey, I’m sorry about the repetitive lyrics playing throughout your head today. So come on, Ilene!
