My great nephew just had his 1st. Birthday. Mom and I made this cute Birthday Wishes book for all his guest to sign.
I used my bind it all. Mom free handed the Nemo for the front.
I thought it turned out cute.
Not as cute as Wyatt
Also my great friend Missy made this adorable banner and sprinkles.
She makes the most adorable stuff. Check her out at www.missymade it .com
Until next time. Keep crafting!

This is a bind it all project and a rosette project. One of the girl had a scor board which makes it super simple to make these rosettes.
I love the fact that you could make it as simple or fancy as you want.
This one is two 2 inch by 12 inch strips of paper, I first punched the edges with a fancy punch and then scored it every 1/2 inch. Then you simply tape or glue the end together and gather together to form a circle. I usually punch out a circle and some glue to the rosette and the circle to give the rosette some stability. Then I place something heavy on it until the glue is dry. keep and eye on it because they sometime are stubborn and will pucker up. Then I added another two circles to fancy it up.
I also made one for a girl at the crop added a magnet so she could hang it on her fridge. Sorry I have a bad habit of not taking pictures.
Hope the recipient likes it!

Here are the His & Her mugs that I made for someone to give as a gift. I used the same sharpie concept as the last mug. Added some tissue paper and hot chocolate and had a quick inexpensive gift.
Obviously I just switched the initials for hers and then for his. I did print separate stickers for both. And again don't forget you could use letters stickers bought at the dollar store just as easily.
That's all I have for today. Happy Monday!

This was a Christmas gift for my sister. The one below was for a coworker who drinks instant coffee.
Lettering of some sort
Oven at 350 for 30 minutes
I simple cut out the letters I needed on my cricut, but you could also use stick on letters anything that will give you a guide. Then I just dotted all around the letters, in this case I free handed a heart. In the one below I cut out a heart shape.
Let it dry a few minutes, removed the lettering, and put it in a 350 degree oven for thirty minute.
I put teas in my sisters and instant coffee in my coworkers.
Very simple and fast. I have more that I made. It is a set of his and her mugs I will share another time.

Around 1978 there was a man that built a house from scratch, and I mean scratch. This included his kitchen cupboards. He has told many a story of the house being built. Recently he had his kitchen remodeled and the cabinets he made with his own two hands were torn down to make way for beautiful new cupboards. When I saw the discarded cupboards I saw a canvas for something to remember the sweat and hard work that went into making someone's house a home. The first thing I made I wanted to reflect this man and his wife. I chose these two birds. I call it Birds of a feather.
This next one is also for my mom.
This I made from half of one of the doors and the handles and hinges. It is ment to be a jewelry hanger.
Stay tuned for more, and maybe even some other crafty things.
