More Watercolors 

Hey y’all!

I’ve been playing with my watercolor pencils and I’m loving these watercolors! I’m not sure what to do with them yet.  Any suggestions?

Happy crafting!

So shabby, so chic, Always. 

Hello!

I was doing a little late night crafting and couldn’t wait to share this little creation. I can’t decide if I want to keep it or post it on my etsy shop! 

This adventure started with having new washi tape that I really wanted to use. I thought this was a nice twist to traditional Harry Potter memorabilia. It tends to be much darker in comparison to this shabby chic rendition. Happy crafting, y’all! 

Happy 4th! 

Hello & Happy 4th, y’all! I had so much fun creating todays crafts, I couldn’t want to share! 

I tried a different painting technique with this jar. It was a little tougher than I had expected, but the final product is perfect! Instead of painting the outside of the jar, I painted the inside.
This was the easiest jar! I simply painted the jar blue and added a glittery finish. I happened to find the finish on the sale rack at Michaels! I can’t wait to use it on other projects!
This little beauty took a little longer, but was worth it! I saw something similar in Michaels, and decided I could make it myself. This jar is definitely my favorite out of the three!

I hope you enjoyed! Happy crafting!!! 

Stamp Camp

Hello y’all!

I’ve been going to stamp camps featuring Stampin’ Up products and I’m hooked!  I really enjoy making the cards and they always turn out so beautiful!  Below are pictures of the cards we made at stamp camp! My favorite from this batch was the father’s day card.  Happy crafting y’all!

Decoupage Owl

Hello!

I haven’t decoupaged something in a long time… So when I was working on this little protect I was worried it wouldn’t turn out as cute as it did!  I found the owl cut out at Walmart.  I traced the owl onto scrap book paper.  I covered the wooden owl in Mod Podge glue and then covered the paper owl in Mod Podge.  After placing the paper on top of the wood, I used a brush to smooth out the paper.  Once the paper started to dry, I applied a coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.  I added a little bow for a finishing touch!

Wedding Crafts! 

Hello!

A few months ago one of my friends got married and she asked for my crafty skills to help out with some of the wedding decor.  I learned some fun tips and tricks and I’m going to share them below!

We wrapped plain tea lights in washi tape to make them pretty!
The wedding was “Peter Pan” themed, which was prefect for the bride and groom. Thimbles were used as accents.
Ribbon wands! We didn’t craft these, but the picture was too pretty not to share!
Thimbles and acorns were used at each place setting. We lightly spray painted the acorns with a shimmery gold paint.
The card box! We actually did construct this ourselves with wrapping paper, ribbon, feathers, and wedding themed stickers.
One of my favorite crafts was embellishing the feathers. We lightly spray painted the feathers with glitter spray paint. They were so pretty!

These were just a few things to share, the whole wedding was incredibly creative!  Hopefully I’ll share the table layouts soon!  I hope you enjoyed, happy crafting!

Sweet Succulents 

Hello!  I’ve been super quiet on the blog lately and I apologize!  I have been working on some fun things and I’m excited to share them with you over the next few weeks!

Today I wanted to share the sweet little succulents I gave as part of a Mother’s Day gift.  I saw these adorable bowls on clearance at TJ Maxx and I couldn’t pass them up!  Later that day I was in Walmart getting a few household items.  As I passed through the lawn and garden section, these little beauties caught my eye.  I’m very pleased with how this turned out!

Now to make one for my house too!  Until next time…
