Fall and All

I made a couple of wreaths in honor of fall.  Haven't gotten to my fall banner as promised, but it will be my next project.

I made both of these wreaths from goods found at Walmart.  Both wreaths cost about $14.00.

The top wreath I made for myself, but ended up giving it to a very sweet friend  of mine.
The bottom wreath I made for my mom.
I love the chevron burlap ribbon.  The possibilities are endless.
 So no more to say than...................

Happy Fall Ya'll

Finding Nemo

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!

Mom and I went to an all day crop and couple weekends ago. I will be sharing some things in the next couple of posts.

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!


Happy Tuesday!

Double Mugs

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!

Simple gift

This was a Christmas gift for my sister. The one below was for a coworker who drinks instant coffee.

Supplies needed:

One mug

Silver sharpie

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.

Happy Sunday
