LOVE banner

I bought this crafting kit a couple of years ago and this was one of the projects included.  I still have to add some little pics of our family and then hang it up on the wall.  It turned out pretty cute and will make a great statement in my craft room!

Container Revamp!

My husband gave me some frog tape containers from a side job he did.  I decided to make them cuter and I know use them for papercraft supplies.  I also took another container that I had lying around the house (it actually held our little dogs' treats) and made it cuter.  It now holds my sponge brushes.

this one contains brads

this one contains eyelets

this one contains paper flowers

paintbrush storage!

I love finding new uses for things and I couldn't be happier with how cute they turned out!

Craftaholics Gift Exchange

I signed up to do the handmade gift exchange over at craftaholics anonymous.  I sent my gift out a week and a half ago.  Here is what I sent:

I couldn't decide on just one item so I sent 3.  My recipient got a mini composition book, a word album, and a heart pendant.  I hope she liked all the great things I sent her.

June's Craft

This month for Ladies Craft Night Out, we made serving trays.  They look simple enough to make but they are a lot harder than they look.  (Especially for someone who has a lack of patience!)  I'm not really thrilled with the way mine turned out but . . . . .

I made 3 there that night, but I ripped one apart when I got home.  It was all bubbly and not very nice looking.  Did I mention my lack of patience?

Paper (Bunting Like) Wreath

I got this idea from Family Fun magazine - if you haven't checked that out, you need to.  They always have way cute ideas.  Anyway, it took me all of 15 minutes to make and it turned out really good.  If you are looking for a quick Patriotic project - I recommend this one!

I decided I wanted to make a flag for our front door.  This is what I came up with:

I went to my local hardware store (AKA my parents house) and my dad had all the things I needed just lying around their garage.  He cut everything out for me (and my mom) and then we went to work painting and glittering it up.  It turned out EXACTLY how I was envisioning it.  (Don't you love when that happens?!)

June Tablerunner

This month's tablerunner was really fun to make and I LOVE the way it came together.  I changed a few things about it.  The pattern had crows sitting on the watermelon slices (which you can see I didn't add) and instead of cutting out black seeds, I used black buttons.
