I made my own button...

I've been wanting to make my own button for my blog for a long time now and it always seemed like such a long process. So today I finally sat down and took the time to figure it out and I did. It is really really easy. If you've been wanting to make one check out this tutorial on how to do it, from cutest blog on the block.
Let me know how it goes :)

Okay, I think I may have figured it out....


I get so frustrated trying to add different background and headers, I don't know how to get rid of the green or to center my title....current condition: very annoyed!!!
Any help would be great..

I love Valentine's day!!!

Stay tuned for a super cute Valentine's day blog giveaway!!!!

For a friend

My friends and I have a secret santa exchange and I made this for my friend. Let you know it was very hard to decide what to make her because she is very crafty herself and I really needed to step up my game. I don't know if she really likes it or not, I'm afraid to look around her house to see if it is up, but I totally understand if its not...its so hard to make things for her.

So I started off with a framed board that I found at Ben Franklin and then I painted it black and then covered the inside with paper and then I cut out random size squares and rectangles, destressed the edges. I added a strip or red velvet the I added the squares and rectangles to my liking and then some swirly felt. I tucked some swirls behind the squares too.

Then I Cricuted the letters and inked the edges in red and placed them on top, I used pop dots for dimension. I added wood scrolls to both top corners and viola!

Just some crafting...

This was done a Craft Club project taught by my friend Julie. It's made with mailing tubes, how clever!!

I made this from a very old cabinet door, the glass broke out of it and I didn't know what to do with it so I did this. You can add pictures in the frames, which I still need to do and then find some where to put it.

Just some cute Valentine's Day things...the mailbox I found a target in the dollar section and covered it with flowers, I though about using paper but i wanted to do something different. And the notebook and red frame is from Micheal's in the dollar section of course!!

Sealed With A Kiss

Pucker up baby!!! Just a layout I did to show off my cute girls!!

Christmas presents

Okay I know these are being posted a little late, but love the way they turned out. I was asked by my friend to make a few Christmas present for some of her family members and I was so excited to do them. I made a sign for her daughter's room, Sienna, and a photo barn star for a present for someone in her family. What do you think??
