Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

A welcome sign with my cricut

Hello again. Last post for today, I have been adding touches and refinishing and coming up with ideas lately. So here is one of my creations....I used my handheld cricut to design this. I used chalky finish paint (love this stuff) not chalkboard paint. Added some stencils that I cut with my cricut. I used Storybook cartridge for the font "WELCOME" and then added fancy corners using the same cartridge and made my own welcome sign. I also used some wood my husband had in his stash...He didn't mind. He is loving all my changes to the house, because it is saving him money..Haha. I already had all the supplies so it cost us nothing. Well just time!!!! My husband will be hanging it up this weekend. Right now this is how everything looks together.

A welcoming Hello!

Hi again. I have been adding some posts today about things that I am refinishing or adding touches too. This is just one of them...(scroll down for more on my blog). Our front screen door of our house was needing a refinish of some kind. The paint was coming off and every time someone sat or leaned against the door they would end up with paint on them...It needed something. So I bought chalky finish Americana décor paint from home depot...(love this stuff), I then added a few coats of this paint and then cut out the Hello on my cricut after designing and sizing it in my gypsy handheld cricut. I wanted something welcoming but something different. So outside is the "Hello" and inside my screen door is Goodbye. I used Cindyloo cartridge for the Font. Sorry can't remember what size I did. Hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by.

A patriotic little latter for Labor day or July 4th

Hello! I have been really excited to get things done before the summer ends. I have been slowly getting things accomplished. I found this great little latter in Erie. I thought it looked too plain so I added a few touches. It already had a star and small wreath inside. I was going to buy a flag but wanted to save money also. So I decided to look around my house for something I could use, I came across this kitchen towel, I added jute from my stash, and some battery operated lights and wala something for Labor day or just for everyday use. Love it.

Beautified lantern

Hello again. Here is another little touch that I fixed up for my front porch. I bought the lantern at kirklands (already included battery operated candle inside...looks like a real candle), added some greenery and some fall color inside with candle and added some ivy. Got all of those at Hobby Lobby 50% off.....I love a great sale. Thanks for stopping by.

Old ugly counter revamped to a new granite looking kitchen counter

Hello ladies. I have been having a lot of fun lately revamping, refinishing, stenciling, and just adding some beautiful touches to our house. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I just revamped my kitchen table. Well now I changed our ugly green counter (in my kitchen) to this beautiful granite looking counter top. All that is left is to seal me counter so I can use it. Take a look. If you would love to know how I did this. Just email me..... Enjoy your Friday and stop by for more updates around my house.

New fence and courtyard garden.

I'm back....I have been pretty busy this summer. From fixing fences with my husband, to revamping kitchen table (also on my blog), to DIY crafts, making layouts, cleaning out closets, redoing my daughters room. Just your everyday stuff. Haha. Since my daughter started back to school yesterday and summer is over for us. I thought I would post the last picture of my summer garden. We did have a fence already up, but the small vinyl fence wasn't holding up due to our neighbors big dogs and no privacy (after they built hottub right next to our house) and dogs always in our faces, so we had to put up a bigger better privacy fence. They say a better fence makes better neighbors, right? LOL. So The first picture is of my fence post being put in. then the rest of pics are the completion of my garden. I love it, so serene and quiet out there now. Now I can enjoy my space and so can the rest of our family.

Revamped Kitchen table

Hello everyone...I am excited to post this. This is my first big big project ever. When I moved into my house about 13 years ago with my husband, my sister gave us this brown farm table. Over time, it has gotten chewed by my dogs, scratched by my kids and just your everyday use. It also has been through about 5 homes now. I was just going to give it away and get something new, but I found Chalky paint and it saved this beautiful farm style table. I used the chalky paint, a lot of sanding, antiquing wax, time and alittle bit of money to make it into a French shabby chic country style table...I totally love how this came out. I added some things from my stash like burlap, greenery with purplish bluish pearl beads. Added some raffia to tie the ends of my burlap, added a tray with rocks and candles. Hope you enjoy as much as I did revamping this.

Happy birthday Dude!

Hi again! This card I made for my nephew for his birthday. He loves anything beachy. So I used Pixar cart for Squirt. He is so turtle cute...LOL. I used LAB for the surfboards and waves (I cut down to size). Added my own poem inside.....hope you enjoy.

Another tshirt made with my cricut

Hello again. This shirt was made for my nephew. He loves fishing and he wanted something with a shark on it. So I did just that. I found all my supplies at the craft store. I used contact paper to cut everything out, used fabric paint, and my creativity. I sprayed with bleach (the tshirt was originally dark blue) Cut the shark out with contact paper and pieced it together. Then added the fabric paint. Let it dry for a few days. Then after the front dried, I did the back with a saying "Chomp my bubbles." the bubble part was a 2 part step. I used white and blue to create the 2 toned effect. any questions please email me. Thank you for stopping by.

A t-shirt made with contact paper

Hello ladies. I was trying to add this last week but something went wrong. My blogger is working today so I will post a couple quick posts. This is a shirt I made for my oldest daughter. She loves seahorses among other things. LOL. I bought the shirt , all the supplies, vinyl, paint, etc at michaels. (or your closest craft store). I cut the images out on my cricut. Then before I added images ...I used bleach to make it look like water effect. I my cricut to cut out on contact paper the coral, bubbles, waves, and the seahorse was made with glitter vinyl. On back of shirt I added the saying " Just keep swimming" Hope you enjoy
