LOVE sign

I painted a sign last fall, but I didn’t like it. Not everything that I make is beautiful and blog-worthy. Some things are kind of a flop, but I am usually stubborn enough to keep on trying. (There is your crafting tip for the day: Be stubborn sometimes.) So, because I felt like it, I painted over the whole thing in red and made a giant LOVE sign for Valentine’s Day. It was actually really…

Rustic Winter Tree

I decorate a pencil tree in my dining room for Christmas. This year when we started to put it away, my daughter and I decided to move it to a dark, awkward corner in our living room. Why not leave it up for the rest of the winter? I made a grapevine garland to wrap around it last year, so I left that on and continued with the rustic, winter theme. I already blogged about the…

Crochet Snowflakes

I procrastinate. Especially with my craft projects. If it doesn’t have a deadline, who knows when it will be finished? I started crocheting snowflakes a really long time ago. It was at least 10 years, but some of them could be older. I don’t know what is wrong with me, but all of these unfinished projects make me feel like a failure. That is not at all what crafting is supposed to be like. I…

DIY Rustic Twine Balls

I really didn’t think these were going to work! On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day the girls and I had a “craft day” on their day off of school. We occasionally have themed days like this with special projects. (They have requested a baking day next time!) We had a craft day over Christmas break and made mason jar snow scenes, baked pine cones, and painted ornaments. This time, we worked on winter decor for…

Rustic Winter Pine Cone Centerpiece

After all of the Christmas decorations are put away the house can seem a little cold and empty. I wanted to create some neutral, rustic, winter decor to fill the gap a bit. I have a few Valentine’s Day decorations, but if I put pink all over the place I would start a pretty big fight in this house since we have strong opinions on both sides about that color. Instead, I went with more…

Easy Mason Jar Snow Scenes

The girls and I had a “craft day” over winter break. Christmas flew by in a blur and we still had a lot of craft projects that were still just big ideas and a pile of supplies. Honestly, some of the supplies were several years old because this seems to happen every year. One of the things that I wanted to make was a “waterless” snow globe decoration. The little plastic deer and bottle brush…

Create In Me a Clean Heart Floral Canvas

I haven’t fallen off of the face of the earth or anything. We are just in a busy season. This spring, we had girls on 2 softball teams and a soccer team, plus all of our regular work and farming stuff to do. It has been C R A Z Y!!! So, as far as crafting goes, I am on a little bit of a painting kick. I got my sunroom all cleaned out and…

Pink Lemonade Bunting and Basket

For my daughter’s first birthday party in August 2014, I used a “pink lemonade” theme. I meant to make these pennant banners to decorate, but didn’t get done in time. I did finish one for in her bedroom, but there were so many extra triangles left over! That became another unfinished project that I added to my Finish-A-Long goals (see HERE). Well, now they are finished! I had enough to make one more bunting identical…

Scrapbook Paper Collage Canvas Art ~ Zebra & Elephant

My daughter and I made more collage canvas art pieces featuring jungle animals. (You can see the hippo and tiger that we made before HERE.) First, we did a purple elephant on an aqua background. Then, she changed her mind and did a zebra on a pink background. The ribbon on the edges has polka dots. One thing we learned is that using larger pieces for the background reduces the bubbles.  All it takes is…
