Funeral Tile


My parents just had a friend pass away, so I made this for the family. I thought I would share so that if you need a great saying for someone here is a good one!

Flower Place Settings




I saw these on Martha Stewarts page and loved them! I had to make something for the girls in my area and thought that these would be cute! Super easy, and quick(those are the kind of projects that I like!)

I think that these would be so cute for name card for Easter dinner too!

St. Patrick's Day



I love holiday's! It makes life a little more fun! I've never really done anything for St. Patrick's day but this year I really wanted to make sure to celebrate as many holiday's as I could to start the "making fun memories" for my little kids!

Plus my husbands name is Patrick so he thinks this is another one of "his day's"(and he has a lot of those:))

So we didn't do too much I just cut out some shamrocks and made a little trail going to a prize in the kitchen. It was so fun to see my little girls face when she woke up to see her door(it was worth taking the time last night to get this done!).

Baby Shower


So here is another new image we just finished(sorry about the poor picture quality, my camera is out of batteries, so it's charging). I'm going to a baby shower tonight so I didn't think I would have time to take the picture later.
Think how cute this would be with a big puffy red skirt, I think I need another baby girl, their clothes are so fun!

T- Shirt Vinyl


So I just finished a new image(it's so darn cute), and put it on a T- Shirt for my little girl. This was my first time doing T- shirt vinyl so it took us a couple times to get it right, but it was a lot of fun trying something new.

Easy Pees-y YUMMY Caramel

This is BY FAR the yummiest and easiest caramel you will ever try!!! I don't recommend making it often because eating the whole pan it a possibility(I'm not kidding).
So everyone try it and tell me what you think!


My mom would make this when we were younger, but not often because we would eat it so fast! I brought some of this over to my parents for my dad's birthday and it was gone before everyone had even gotten there. This is way good!

Recipe:
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c white corn syrup
1/2 c butter

Put it all in a bowl and microwave on high for three minutes, take it out and mix it together, and then microwave for another three minutes.
Pour the mixture into a buttered pan and let it sit for 20 min. to cool. THAT'S IT!!

You will love this, I'm not kidding!!





The finished product. It doesn't make a lot so doubling it works just as well, so so yummy!

Sunny Surfer. . .

I want summer sooo bad! This winter has been too long! When my sister(Rochelle, the amazing artist) drew this one, I wanted to put it everywhere as a reminder that winter is not going to last forever!

The last couple day's have been beautiful here, and we're hoping they last!

Please excuse the messy house we're in the process of moving(we hope, if everything works out!).

Paper Baby Shoes

I made these baby shoes for a couple baby showers that I helped with. The boy shoe's were from my sister-in-laws and the girl shoe's were from my little sisters baby shower. Both these showers were a couple months ago, I still have a couple girl shoes left and a couple boy shoes left, I thought it would be cute to give them to friends when they have their babies(just attached to the top of the gift with some candy in it). Every time my husband see's them he wants to throw them out(he's lame like that) so I had to get them up before they are gone forever!
So. . . Fill them with candy and everyone will love them!! Because who doesn't love candy, and babies(it's a win/win combination)


Here is the link where you can get the FREE template, and the video.

Be Attitudes

There is a little boy in my church that is doing a fund raiser, for his Scout Project and everyone was asked to donate something that can be auctioned off for a little money. I don't know how much this will make, but here is my contribution.

I like the mom and dad bee on both side, like they are standing guard for their kids(haha, always watching:))

p.s. I took it at a bad angle and all the words look smished, but it doesn't look that bad in real life.

B is for boy . . . and baseball and Breakir



I did some signs for my friends door. She wanted the names for her two little boys in vinyl. Here they are.

Here is our new baseball boy, I put the baseball boy on the side of one of her boys names and I did our soccer player boy on the other one.

Casacade Rules



So I did one more sign for my dad's classroom. He needed the school motto to look nice, so this is what I came up with. This little girl in the corner is one of our new creations. I love the dress.

Blog Award

So I just took the week off last week, things have been pretty crazy around here(I think that things are always crazy but then they get even more crazy and that's when I can't handle it). I'm back and this week I should have some great stuff coming out!

I'm so excited because

Julieta from

http://4goofballs.blogspot.com/ gave us this wonderful award! I'm so excited for my first ever blog award! Thanks you so much!

The Rules for the award is that I have to name five reasons why I love crafting and pass it on to five other crafters(and acknowledge the person who gave it to me!).

Here are the five reasons I love crafting:

1. Feels good to accomplish something in the day! The house is never as clean as I want it, the dishes are never done, but I can get a craft done and its done!

2. I love creating.

3. I love teaching my kids how fun work can be.

4. I love making other people happy through my creations!

5. It's kind of fun to drive my husband crazy with all the random stuff I want to buy(just in case I need it later).

The five people I give this award to are(and they are in no order):

1. http://cardmkrleslie.blogspot.com/ She has some great stuff and is always willing to help with questions!

2.http://nubiancrafter.blogspot.com/
