Has it really been 5 months - FIVE since my last post over here?  The last five months have been a little busy with family, kids, friends, my photography business and the holidays.  My crafts have gotten pushed to the back burner but for some reason the craft/playroom still is a disaster.  How could that be possible?!  I guess there has been lots of playing and not so much crafting.  But I feel the desire to start fresh again - maybe it's just that new year pushing me to try a little harder to be a little better.  I have been de-junking my house, tearing out half of the clothes in my closet that I don't wear anymore - some since College, a few even from High School.  I'm totally getting ready for a garage sale cause I am ready to get this junk outta here!

I have been doing a lot of browsing lately at a bunch of cute, cute crafts - especially in time for Valentines.  Check out all of this cuteness!!!

Becky Higgins has two adorable printables on her site
Becky Higgis Love One Another
Eighteen 25 has another Subway Art - Oh yes I love these girls.  Such amazing stuff. 

Kara's Party Ideas just posted a recent Vintage Valentines Party that she did for a local TV show.  So cute.


This is seriously so cute!  Scrapper Girl created her own heart photo ornament.  her tutorial is included in the post.  I just might be making one of these.

It's been about a month and I'm slowly coming back to blogging and crafting.  This summer has been fun and busy but I think I am ready for school to start.  Although I am not looking forward to the early friends know what I mean.  I like to sleep!

I was browsing my favorite blogs this morning and came across this darling little freebie from Vol. 25.  Love love love this site and her amazing talent.  Go check it won't be dissappointed. 
It's a fun little craft for your kiddos and to keep them busy when momma needs some peace and quiet.  I like crafts like those.  :)

Father's Day Gift Ideas

It's that time of year my friends - Father's Day, and boy to I have a ton of fun ideas I have found around the web.  There is some amazing talent out there and it's so fun to see what people have come up with.  So check it out!

Easy Crafts for Kids - Family Fun had a bunch of cute ideas that your kids can do.  Take a look at their printables page for things that your kids can color and give to their dads.

Best Ever BBQ Apron - I thought this one was cute - especially if your Daddo is a BBQ Master.  What a fun way to have a personalized reminder of the little ones that he is cooking for!

How about these Retro Father's Day Clip-Art Labels from Martha.  You can download the clipart from her site.

Etsy always has the perfect gift for any occasion.  Check out these custom silhouettes from Blue Clara that you can have made of your children.  I would order these for my husband but they secretly would be for me. 

Homemade cards are always the way to go.  Kristina Werner of Kwerner Design made some adorable Father's Day cards - and she even has a You Tube tutorial!

Here is another idea - similar to Martha's but even cuter....if you can imagine that!  This was my first gift idea that I found and I was hooked.   It's a SUPER HERO CARE PACKAGE and I found it on Alphamom.  The kids are so excited to make these for their Daddo this week - good thing he doesn't check this blog or his gift would be busted!

Have fun getting crafty for Father's Day!  Send me your ideas.

Fun Photo Blocks

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone enjoyed their day celebrating and remembering those who have given their lives for our freedom.  We are truly blessed! 

Just wanted to share some fun photo blocks that I made for Mother's Day for my MIL.  These are all the grandkids on my husband's side of the family so I thought it was a fun way to display all the kiddos together.  I just took a 2x4, measured the size I wanted, cut, sanded, painted, sanded some more and then glued my pictures on them.  It's a fun and different way to display photos in your home.  You can always cut the blocks a little bigger than your picture and add scrapbook paper behind it, add a ribbon around the block or some cute knobs to go on the top.  All fun ways to be creative!

I've been crafting up a storm over here, sewing, quilting, modpodging and hot glueing. FUN STUFF! Wondering what I've been doing?? Well here's one little sweet project. Miss G and I were at our favorite store today - Hobby Lobby....well ok, my favorite store. I usually hear, "not Hobby Lobby!!" We just happened down the 66% off Home Decor aisle and found this cute little bird cage and thought we would add a nest and a little birdy in it to hang in G's room. It was a fun mommy daughter project. I thought it turned out pretty cute and it looks so fun hanging on the curtain rod in front of her window. Not a bad deal at $3.00 for the cage, $1.59 for the birds and $1.99 for the nests. Total cost = SWEETNESS!
