Camera Strap Cover

I made this recently for a good friend of mine who is a photographer.  I've been trying to figure these things out for a while now and I finally got it down.  I LOVE the way this one turned out so I made one for myself as well.

Art Cases

I made this one for our little guys' recent birthday - he loved it!

And this one I made for a birthday gift for one of the girls' in his class:

I got the idea for these here.

S'more Brownie Bars

These things are DELICIOUS and so simple to make.  You need the following items:

Betty Crocker Frosted Brownie Mix, a bag of mini marshmallows, and a pkg of graham crackers crushed.

Make the brownies by following the directions on the box then stir in half of the crushed graham crackers and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  Sprinkle 3 -4 cups of the marshmallows on the hot brownies and bake another 10 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown.  As soon as you take them out of the oven, sprinkle the remaining graham crackers on top.  Heat the frosting in a microwaveable safe dish for 20 - 30 seconds and then drizzle it over the top.  Let cool completely. 
This is what you end up with: 


Just a sidenote - I took these babies to a good friend that I Visiting Teach and they fought over the last one!  The mom told me she of course won the fight and ate it with a big glass of milk in the cover of darkness so she wouldn't have to share with anyone!

New Pillows

I've been wanting to make some of these ruffled throw pillows for some time now.  I finally settled on some cute fabric and sewed away.  They came together really fast and I LOVE how they turned out.  They go perfectly with the colors I am trying to implement in our living room.

Finally a project finished!

I have been planning on doing this family rules board for about 3 months.  I couldn't decide on the paper I wanted to use or the font or basically do with it  I FINALLY made myself decide and I could not be happier with the outcome.  It looks awesome hanging in our dining room.  (Thanks Lynette, for the great idea!)

This is what is hanging on my front door - well, let me rephrase.  This is what was hanging on my front door until it go so blasted windy I had to move it inside for fear it was going to get blown apart (it's happened to some of my door hangers before!) 
I LOVE how this sweet little watermelon slice turned out (and I don't really care for watermelon!)

I've been wanting to make some valances for our living room and dining room for quite some time now.  I finally settled on some cute fabric and got them made.  It seriously only took about an hour to do all three of them - so it's not like it was a time consuming project.  I LOVE the way the turned out and they just add so much to the rooms they are in.
This is one of two hanging in the living room.  (The pic makes the fabric look darker than it really is!)

This is the one I made for the dining room!

Wall Hangings

I've seen various ways to do these and I've wanted to make them for some time.  I finally got around to doing it.  My dad cut me three 11 1/8 square boards.  I painted the edges and back off white.  I then modpodged 3 different papers on.  I used a craft knife to trim the paper around the edges.  I then glued ribbon around the sides and added a sawtooth picture hanger on the pack.  VERY simple to make and I love they way they look in our living room.

August Tablerunner

This month's tablerunnner had A LOT of applique.  I put off sewing it until the last possible time - I finished it July 30th!  It turned out way better than I thought it would and I love the different vegetables on it.

August's word!

I had a hard time coming up with a word for August - I went back and forth between a few different words.
I settled on:

July's Craft of the Month

We made these little hook boards for our craft in July.  I decided to put mine up in our pantry and it is where I hang my aprons.  I love how it turned out!

The cutest one I've ever made!


I made this puff quilt for a good friend of mine who just had a sweet baby girl.  I really didn't want to give it away and was trying to think of a reason to keep it but no go.  What am I going to do with this ultra girly quilt when I am surrounded by boys?!  Anyway, it definitely will get used by Teralee and her sweet new baby so I take solace in that.

Linking up with:

Waterproof changing pad

I made this for a friend of mine who just had the tiniest, sweetest baby girl.  It was my first time making one of these (I stole the idea from my SIL).  I didn't fancy it up like she does but it definitely will get the job done.

Key hook

I saw this idea some time ago and finally got around to making it.  It hangs right by our door that leads into the garage and I don't have to hear - "Honey, did you see where I put my work keys?" anymore.
