Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a craft I did for Elisabeth over 3 years ago. It was one of the first blog posts I did on the old blog (now it’s one of the most popular searches on Pinterest for puff paint on canvas!). Wait until you see how easy it is to add handwriting to a canvas. It’s a fun and easy craft and you could really play around with the idea to come up with some fun projects.

Here’s another money saving DIY that I did for my wedding! I made my own Wedding Invitations and Save The Dates!! Since we had a destination wedding in Jamaica I decided that having a Passport and Boarding Pass themed invite would be perfect! And I figured out how I could use both options! I decided to do a passport invitation for the wedding in Jamaica and a boarding pass invitation for the At Home Reception.

Thrifting is the best weekend therapy after a long work week. I love digging and searching for the random goodies, especially when you don’t have anything in mind that you need or want. Whenever you find something that gets your heart beating, that’s hidden beneath the rubble pile that’s when you know you’ve hit the jackpot. My grandmother likes to call them “treasures” and I’ve been using that term ever since. Today’s treasure is a set of hammered glass light pendants that I used for these unique candle holders.

I love my Cricut machine so much. I am the most fond of doing projects using the vinyl which comes in rolls. It can be kind of a headache to unroll, lay on the mat, roll back up, store… I buy the rolls of vinyl whenever I see them on sale or clearance and after a while they started stacking up and looking like a mess in my craft room cabinet. Last time I walked by the scrapbook aisle though, an idea hit me – cut and store the vinyl in a binder. I can’t wait to show you!

In honor of teacher appreciation week and the school year coming to an end, I’m sharing the crayon monogram I made for Cassie’s classroom a few years. I got the idea from, you guessed it, Pinterest and went to work. This is such an easy craft to make for your child’s teacher or your teacher friends.

A couple weeks ago I started up my garden again. I was out of control at the garden center… I came home with 6 different tomatoes, eggplant, all kinds of peppers (jalapeno, bell, poblano), 3 types of squash, cucumber, green leafy lettuces and a mini herb garden. Now that everything is planted and settled in I wanted to create some garden markers to help me distinguish between them until they have started producing. I used wine corks and skewers to create these garden markers and I already had the materials on hand.

When my friend, Kristi, was pregnant with Zach, her husband, Josh, came up with the cutest idea to have a Calvin and Hobbes themed nursery. Josh grew up loving Calvin and Hobbes and wanted to share that love with their son. They mentioned wanting to look online to see if they could buy Zach his very own Hobbes plush and that’s where I come in! Of course I volunteered to try to make one myself and lucky for me I found a great how to here from instructables! By the way, I love this picture! It’s like Zach and Hobbes are in cahoots over something!
