Compelled to Craft Feature and Very "Compelling" Giveaway!

I'm so excited to bring you the latest addition to our Domestic Bliss Series.  Compelled to Craft!  Compelled to Craft sent me an absolutely fantastic item for the laundry room.  And they are providing another one for giveaway!  When it arrived in this neat little roll, I couldn't wait to open it up!  And what is it, you ask?

A padded ironing board cover!  No longer do I have an ugly old cover on my ironing board.  I have this fun, fresh cover instead!  Who says doing laundry and ironing can't be fun? As much time as I spend ironing, I might as well make it an enjoyable experience. And when my board is hanging on the wall in the laundry room, it becomes a fun piece of decor for the room as well!

Look at how ADORABLE this fabric is!  The one Compelled to Craft sent me is  Riley Blake Domestic Diva in cream vintage look.  It was so hard to choose just one because they have so many fantastic covers available.  Don't worry, I'll show you a bunch of them here in a minute!

As you can see here, the padding is attached beautifully to the top fabric.  It is made with two layers of cotton batting, and makes the perfect surface for ironing.   I was very impressed by how much nicer the padding is on this cover from Compelled to Craft compared to the cheap brand I originally had on my board.

 It's hard to showcase how fantastic the fit of this cover is.  Since it has elastic around the edge, the padded cover is so easy to put on my existing board.  It just slipped right on.  All you have to do is just stretch it over the board, and adjust it slightly until it's nice and smooth.  When Garret saw it, even he was impressed with how great it fit! 

Compelled to craft can make these covers in any colors, fabric, and size of your choice.  They can also be made without the pad if you prefer to use your existing one.

I've been busy using this beauty since I received it about a week and a half ago.  It works wonderfully, and makes me smile every time I get to iron(I know that sounds just wrong, but it's true). 

This would be a fantastic girlfriend gift, mothers day gift, or gift for yourself!  Who doesn't want to make ironing fun?  I cannot thank Paula and Compelled to Craft enough for sending me my padded cover.  I love it so much!
