Halloween Canvas Wall Hanging

In a few days, I’ll be posting about an amazing blogger’s night out that took place at Gardner Village a few weeks ago.  One of my favorite stores at the village (aren’t they all?) is Pine Needles where you can find more fun fabric then you’ll know how to handle.  I went ahead and busted […]

Same shape, new project

When you’ve spent the time designing your own shape for use with your silhouette, it’s nice to use it more than one way.  Here’s a great example of applying that principle using the FREE shape file (subscribe to the right if you want it!) from last week’s Wooden Chalkboard Plant Markers. I love these turquoise […]

Wooden Chalkboard Plant Markers

I was at Michael’s craft store the other day and saw a set of these of rectangular plant markers by Martha Stewart and thought they looked pretty fun and functional.  When I took them to check out, they rang up $12.99…yikes!, they were in the wrong bin and I wasn’t about to pay that price […]

Spinning Sucker from Big Lots

I found this idea right AFTER Easter last year…of course!  So I’ve waited a whole year to do it and I can’t wait to see the expression on my 3 (almost 4!) year old’s face when she sees the magical transformation of these jelly beans.  If you own a silhouette, this is literally a 5 […]

St. Patrick’s Day Treat and Printable – Leprechaun Munch

I have to say, this treat turned out so tasty.  It was a total experiment and we loved the result–the combination of mint and chocolate with a little salty crunch was just right.  Pretty much all of our supplies came from one of our favorite local kitchen stores, Orson Gygi.  You can order supplies from […]
