Cupboard Door Bow Holder!

Yea!! Its done! I have been wanting to make one of these for quite some time now...after I saw this AdOrAbLe idea here! Today...I came across another one here! SO CUTE!!

My daughters bows were always getting smashed...they were scattered everywhere...and when it was time to find them...I had no idea where they were. NOT ANYMORE!!! :)

I made this from a cupboard door. YeS...I love re-purposing! I just painted it...sanded edges a little...mod podged the paper on it...distressed it by wiping stain on edges...stapled ribbon using staple gun...and drilled holes in the top and hung it with wire! So CuTe and So SiMpLe!!

I was could even turn this into a picture holder or message making some cute clothes pin hangers like the ones I made here!

HaVe FuN!!

Spotlight: "SayItOnTheWall" vinyl decor

How many of us have those non-child friendly Nativity Sets that we set out every year... and HOPE... that they won't get dropped or broken in some way??? Yes...I am SURE they are very BEAUTIFUL...but wouldn't it be FUN to have one that your children or grandchildren can play with and really learn from?!!
Check out what Mckay from SayItOnTheWall came up with!!! I think these are AbSoLuTelY AdOrABLe!!! Not to mention their functionality. How FuN would these be for your kids:

The nativity story block is a neat idea because it has a different picture of the Christmas Story on each of the 6 sides. It's a great tool for both teaching and telling the story. Mckay says that her kids have been loving looking at each side... and telling that part of the story!
NATIVITY STORY CUBE : are pics of two of her most popular products:


I LoVE them!!!
Wouldn't any one of these make a great Super Saturday project!!!

Personalize Your Camp Chairs!!

If you haven't tried freezer paper stenciling need to!! They are sooo much FuN!!

These were made from simple freezer paper stencils that I cut out with my Cricut. I used regular craft paint...but the fabric paint might work a little bit better...I just didn't have any on hand. Here is an awesome freezer paper stencil tutorial from MADE... if you haven't done them before. I must say...they are A-LoTTa FuN!! I was thinking...I might add a princess crown above my daughters name... and sprinkle glitter over the paint to give it that SpaRkLe!

The one above was made by straight stitching( ?I think that is what its called?) over a taped piece of paper that I printed my name on. It was pretty easy...but took more time than the painted way.
No more "Which chair is mine?" questions!!!! YEA!!! :)
These would also make fun Christmas or Birthday gifts!!
HaVe FuN!!

FuN Monogrammed Necklace!

Here is another FuN necklace idea:

I came across this idea at Mod Podge Rocks! I LoVe this blog!! Amy has so many CuTe CuTe crafting ideas using Mod Podge. She has instructions on how she made hers here!!
I LoVe personalizing I made these for my girls.

You could get pretty CrEaTiVe with could put shapes, pictures, photos, and you could even glam them up with that glitter glaze!

I first drilled a hole with a 1/16" drill bit in the top of the circle...then painted mine with regular craft paint...then traced the wooden circle on some scrapbook paper... cut it out...glued it on...then when the glue was dry...I used the drill to make the hole in the paper.

Then used my Cricut to cut out the letter...and Mod Podged it on. I would think you could use that Diamond Glaze that we used on the washer necklaces too...if you would like that glassy look. I haven't tried it yet...but I think it might turn out really CuTe! {FYI} The M was made out of scrapbook paper...and the A was made out of vinyl.
Then...I just attached a 7mm jump ring that I bought at JoAnns!!
Very Inexpensive and Very FuN to Make!!
HaVe Fun!!
