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…

Spring Wreath

Hello!  Each season I’ve been trying to update the wreathe on my front door.  Wreaths aren’t exactly hard (at least not the ones that I’ve been trying!), but I’ve found getting the picks in the right place can be frustrating.  I’m pretty pleased with how my spring wreath turned out!  I’m in love with tulips this season!  Happy Spring!!!

Personalized Gifting!

Hello y’all! For those of you who don’t already know, I’m also a Scentsy consultant!  Today I’m sharing a quick DIY using a Scentsy warmer called “Charmer.”  I needed a gift last Christmas for someone who loves flip flops.  I couldn’t think of what to get her, knowing that she is gifted a lot of flip flop stuff and this idea popped into my head!  I found someone on Etsy that makes flip flop decals.  Once I completed the flip flop warmer, I really wanted one myself!  I ordered my monogram from the same Etsy shop and made my own!  They both turned out really pretty!  This is a great idea if you’re looking for something personalize this holiday season!!!

Mason Jar Candle

Hello! Here’s a fun little craft I found on Pinterest! 
What you’ll need:
-Mason Jar
-Mod Podge (I used the spray not the glue)
-Glitter
-Battery operated Tea Light
-Ribbon
Spray the inside of the mason jar with mod podge (or you can coat it with glue). Add glitter.  I put the lit back on and shook the jar until the glitter covered the glass.  Then, simply add a tea light to the inside and screw the glass on top of the lid.  I added a little ribbon to match the decor in the room. Hope ya’ll enjoy!

In Memory

I decided to take one of my favorite sayings and create a little sign.  I made one for my home and one for my niece in memory of my Mom!  This was a quick and easy little craft! 

What you’ll need:
-Sign (I chose both of mine from Michael’s)
-Markers (I used paint markers, but sharpies work too!)
-Burlap Bows!

I just simply wrote the quote on the sign above.  For the sign below, I used a plain wooden sign and painted it pink, before writing the quote.  
Then I added the burlap bows, which I also found at Michael’s!  Quick and easy!  Happy crafting y’all! 

Repurpose Scentsy Clam Shells

As many of you already know, I’m a Scentsy Independent Consultant!  Today I wanted to share some ideas I’ve had on reusing Scentsy clam shells!  I get so many of these and I love finding ways to reuse them!!! 
What you’ll need:
-Empty clam shell
-Glue (Elmers & hot glue)
-Scrapbooking Paper
-Scissors
-Googly Eyes
-Pipe Cleaners
-Magnets
For the first project, I made a critter out of the lid portion of the clam shell. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the shape of the lid.  Using Elmer’s glue I secured the paper to the lid, then added the eyes and nose.  I used a marker to make the mouth.  Using a hot glue gun, I secured the pipe cleaner to the back of lid and also secured the magnet. I used corners of the scrapbooking paper to create the ears and glued them to the outer portion of the lid!   
When I initially used the magnets on the back of the lid, I used Styrofoam to lift the magnet out of the lid a little, but I later found it was easier to glue the magnet directly to the lid. 
This next project is great for my fellow Scentsy Consultants!  I cut the lid off of old clam shells and added my label with my information.  It’s a great play on a business card!  I just glued a magnet on the back.  I use it as a bag stuffer when packaging orders and my customers love it!  
This isn’t so much a project, but sharing an idea!  I love using the empty wax portion of the clam shell as a pallet for paints!  It comes in handy with all the crafting and painting I’ve been doing lately!!! 
The last idea is kinda fun!  I took a clam shell and glued a piece of scrapbook paper on the front.  I then cut eight slips of paper and tucked them into each section.  On the pieces of paper I wrote a small object, for example “penny” or “paper clip” to create a scavenger hunt.  Obviously you can write what ever you heart desires on the slips of paper, I was trying to think of little things that would fit into the little compartments!  
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!  I’d love to hear any other suggestions on how to reuse the clam shells!!! Happy Crafting Y’all!!!
