Do you love decorating for the holidays? This Valentine Polka Dot Poppy Wreath was very inexpensive and easy to make!
We had such a blast doing this Valentine Cupid Photo Shoot! Emma is growing up so fast and I miss her being little. This photo shoot was four years ago! She is turning 12 in a couple of months. It’s amazing and scary and bitter sweet to watch her grow and learn and change. She is an amazing human and I wish I could be more like her.
RESTORED HARDWARE CHRISTMAS TREE diy:
Whew! So so so happy to have this RESTORED HARDWARE CHRISTMAS TREE done and off my mind! I started collecting “stuff” for this project last year. Most of the hardware was found at a flea market. I was determined that I would finally get this project done this year….and here we are 5 days before Christmas and it is hanging on the wall! So, if you love this idea and want to make one for yourself go ahead and PIN it and start collecting now. Everything for this project was thrifted. There’s something about taking random “junk” and making something fun and unique that just makes me happy.
I love the way this framed evergreen ice skate turned out! There is a GREAT flea market where we used to live and I have been missing it so much. Lucky for me, it’s only an hour away. We decided to head that way a few weeks ago and I found this adorable ice skate for TWO BUCKS! She was single and looked so lonely. I knew that I could take her home and add a little somethin’ somethin’ and make her magical. There were no laces so I used a little twine. It’s not like it needs to hold up to hours of extreme ice skating…it just needs to look adorable and this did the trick.

Supplies needed to make your own Galvanized Metal Summer Door Hanger:
These framed pin cushions are so dang adorable, inexpensive and easy to put together. I made one a few years ago for my Mom for her birthday and she still loves it! She is an INCREDIBLE seamstress and I just knew that having a BIG, easy to find pin cushion would be useful to her. I made hers in an ornate 5×7 frame painted navy blue with a sweet floral print and matching navy button in the center. Right now I am working on making a TON of framed pin cushions for a craft show I am doing soon. I am selling furniture and decor at the show but wanted something inexpensive and cute for people to buy for themselves or for gifts.
Items you will need to make your own FRAMED PIN CUSHION:

How to make your own FRAMED PIN CUSHION:
I always look at yard sales and thrift stores for frames. I was feeling pretty great about a few I got last weekend at a yard sale for a dollar or two. Then today I found some as cheap as 20 cents at a thrift store! SCORE!!! The largest ones I used for this project are 5×7 and I found some cute little ones as well!
You guys! I have been DYING to share this baby shower with you. When we lived in Texas I had some AMAZING and VERY TALENTED friends. Several of us worked together on this shower. It’s always amazing to me what we can accomplish when we work together…and it is SO MUCH MORE FUN!
So much eye candy! This shower was for our friend, Camilla. Her baby boy is named Bear! This was the perfect theme for his baby shower and she was even able to use some of the things we made in his nursery.
This was such a fun craft to make! I am sorry to say that I didn’t take many photos…or I did and can’t find them! hehe Anyhoo….I will just explain how I did it and y’all can ask if you have any questions! I have made these button canvases a few times with a friend of mine in Texas. I made a small one with navy and white stripes and a yellow button heart that is super cute. This canvas is a 16×20 so it’s pretty big! I started out by using blue painters tape and I just taped stripes across the canvas. I just used a little piece of tape between each stripe on each side to make sure they were evenly spaced…I just took them off each time as I moved along. After I got the tape on there nice and even I used a card…like a credit card or gift card…and went over the tape so it was secure and smooth. One tip for working with canvas is to put a book or something about the same height as the canvas underneath it so it doesn’t stretch out! This was especially important when I put the vinyl on. You don’t want to push on it and end up with a saggy canvas at the end. I used spray paint for this project and it was easy peasy. The paint is less likely to bleed under the tape when using spray paint.
