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.

Deco Mesh Christmas wreath

Hello Everyone! I have been busy making some gifts for Christmas but I have had this wreath in mind for a while now. I bought all the supplies last year on sale after the holidays and since I had a wreath made for last year I figured it could wait until this year. My theme is silver and blues this this color combo. I used silver snowflakes, silver and blue deco mesh (love this stuff...very easy to work with), silver, blue and white ornaments with greenery.....and some silver spikey things (sorry not sure what they are called) added some silver ribbon in between and there you have a deco mesh sparkly wreath. Love how this turned out...stay tuned for the Christmas gifts I made and some snow globes. Thank you for stopping by.

Vinyl posters for games

Hi! My youngest daughter had her 3rd birthday party in September. Sorry I am now posting these. I have been pretty busy making Christmas gifts. Getting a head start on things this year. On her birthday , we had some of her cousins and friends come over and they all got to play these cool games that I made up. She had such a blast. I made all the signs , my favorite sign was the Pin the shell on the Tail. I used vinyl and some poster boards...that is it. Very simple. Hope you enjoy these.

Tulle table border

Hi again! I made this tulle border for my youngest daughters 3rd birthday party. It was a Mermaid theme. I added some seashells, tulle, pearls, and hot glue. That is it. It took about 10 minutes. Very Easy.

Ugly counter refurbished into New granite looking counter

Hello again. I have been pretty busy around our house. Fixing up items, refurbishing and just decorating. The green counter top is my old ugly from the 50s that has been in our house since we bought it almost 14 years ago. So I was tired of looking at it and wanted a change. I went and bought American décor from Home Depot. Primed it and then used acrylic paint to make it new. I found this idea on pinterest...check it out. Just type painted counter tops. Wala a whole bunch come up. Cool huh? I am so happy with how mine came out. Hope you give this a try.

Sneak peek at a turtley cute tshirt

Hello ladies. I have been busy making Christmas gifts...yes I said Christmas!!! LOL. It will be right around the corner so I have not had time to post some of my projects I have also been working on and finished. This tshirt is for my youngest daughter. She loves Nemo and Dory since we went to Disney spring. So I thought I would make her a shirt. It is not complete but here is a sneak peek at what I am working on. Hope you stop back for the completed project.

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.
