Holiday Swag!

Ahhh my household is getting super excited for the holidays! The decorating has started! Before we know it December 1st. will be here!

I saw these large letters at my local craft store and fell in LOVE with them!  I wanted to make a wreath with the initial of my last name.  I wanted to make it Whimsical with a bit of  Shabby Chic Flair.  I loved the final product! Let me know what you think! What sort of wreath are you hanging up this year?

Earring Hanger

I don't know about you but I am constantly losing my dangley earrings or they sit in a pile on my counter in the bathroom! I wanted a cute way of displaying them so I came up with these! These would also make a great bow holders! I will have to make Presley one for her room!  These two were actually what I gave the teachers for end of the year gifts! I hope they liked them! Let me know what you think!

Teacher Cards

It's been awhile! But now that it's summer and school is out! I'll hopefully be back at blogging a little bit! I made custom cards for both the kids teachers! I think they turned out pretty cute! I wanted them to have a School Rock feeling!
Here's to a Happy Last day of school and hopefully a sunny Summer!

Subway Art

So about a year ago now we remodeled our downstairs bathroom and for about a year I've been looking for some type of black and white art to put on the walls.

When we were in Leavenworth (a small Bavarian town in Washington) I bought a canvas with subway art for about $50.00!  Just recently I found  some subway art at Marshall's and TJ Max for $16.99!  Cheaper yes! But I had an idea that I could make it even cheaper!

This is my first attempt at subway art! It's not perfect but I kind of like it that way!  I plan on covering all the walls in my powder room with subway art for some bathroom reading material! Ha, ha!

So do you want to know how I made this?!?!
First of all I bought a canvas at Michael's! It was 40% off! I paid a few dollars for a blank canvas!

I have so many alphabet stickers from scrap-booking and to be truthful I really don't like using stickers! And these ones I used on this canvas were super tacky! Not my style at all!

I looked for some fun quotes, placed the stickers on the canvas and then used acrylic paint over the letters! I let it dry for about an hour and then peeled off the stickers! And PRESTO! Subway art for really $3.00!

Weekly Menu

Made this Menu Plan Board for the my Kitchen!  Trying to stay organized with a busy schedule!

I bought a 12x12 picture frame, picked out a piece of scrapbook paper that would match the decor of my kitchen and found this vinyl Kitchen Menu piece at Ben Franklin!

I added the vinyl to the scrapbook paper and then placed the scrapbook paper in the frame! Viola! A easy peasy menu planner!

Thank U's

More cards I made while we were stuck in the house for 7 days! I've had no Thank you cards around for a while! So it was defiantly time to replenish! Kind of feeling guilty about not getting around to sending out Thank U's! So no more excuses because they are made!
