My first Christmas mantel!

The one homemade part of this is that I bought these cool mirrored frames on clearance about a year earlier.  I loved them but couldn't figure out what to do with them.  Come Christmas time I was determined to use them so I bought an old kids Christmas book at Goodwill - cut out my favorite two pictures and mounted them over black scrapbook paper with silver stars on it!  

Dress Before...and After!

Tune back in to see the after - I have to find the picture!

Mini Cards!

I love these because they are cute and the note inside has to be concise or it won't fit!!!  Small and sweet!

Summer's over - back on the blogwagon...

Still catching up - this is what I hand painted on Mary's crib wall!  She loves the birds and often wants to kiss them goodnight.  She used to call them tweet tweets but now she says "Burds, tweet, tweet".  CUTE!

Colton's class quilt!!!

Colton's class needed to make something to contribute to a fundraiser auction for their school tutoring program.  I volunteered to teach them how to quilt and make a quilt with them that we could donate.  Little did I know that it would have been MUCH easier to do the whole thing myself!  Such is life - I should have known but holy cow!  Let's just say it might have been easier to make a true crazy quilt with the "squares" they cut - there was not a 90 degree angle to be found so I had to do a lot of fudging.  I must say it turned out pretty good and their class teacher bought it with the "buy it now" bid which made me feel good - he really liked the project.
