Share the Love

After reading on a friends blog, I realized that I am a VERY bad blogger indeed! I realized that she was offering a contest of sorts to "share the love". I LOVE it when she shares and I missed it! So I did not win. So instead of being a sore looser, I decided to "share the love" as well. I am sure all you bloggers out there already know of this program, but if you know me and love me you will want what I have to offer and play the game too! Here is how it will go down.

Be one of the first 5 to respond with a comment to this post and receive a home made gift from me! I know that I have been a very naughty blogger and not posted my latest ideas and crafts so this could be a great surprise!

  • I reserve the right to make you what I want
  • I reserve the right to change my mind on what I am making you at any given time.
  • You may not even like what I make you...but I highly doubt it cause I am making it for you with you in mind.
  • I also reserve the right to ask you any questions about your decor and you have to answer them honestly and possibly with pictures...

The catch to this is that by being one of the first 5, you must "share the love" on your blog as well. I promise that this will be so much fun!

On your mark,...get set...GO!

Chore Chart

I first have to say that this was not my idea...but one that I stole from a Sister at church. I thought it was so cute and I had all the supplies already so it didn't cost me a thing!

Items needed: cork board, material, lace, old jeans, glue gun, ribbon, Popsicle sticks, flowers. black paint, and a staple gun.As the girls get their chores done, they move that flower over to the empty pocket until all the chores are done. Rachel loves this and Emma not so much. So make sure that it is age appropriate.

The New Addition

I am slowly changing the color of my furniture to this darker wood. Currently, the majority of my furniture is a honey oak. Which I still love...but it is time for a change...!
I finally talked Dennis into getting this armoire to hide all the electronics in. It was on top of the fireplace and was such an eyesore. Now the t.v. isn't the center of attention anymore! I just love it! I am currently saving and hording money for a new dining room table...So far I am about half way there! I am so excited for it too! Dennis is also excited...he is putting most of his play/spending money towards it as well! Thank you honey! I love you!

Creative Clothes Pins

I cannot take credit for this cute idea. Actually, It was Amanda that told me about this craft on our cousin Bailey's Blog. So I took a look and decided to join Amanda in making some. We did this while Crab Apple jelly was a cookin' and setting. It was easy and a lot of fun. Even Amanda's 4yr old Lindy got into it! These are some of Amanda's (above and below)
And these are mine. I thought that this is a great way to cheer up someone. Also great for Visiting Teaching gifts. We have yet to get the magnets to go on the back, but that will come soon!
To find out how to make these cute little magnet clips, check out my cousin's blog
Thanks Bailey for the great idea!

New Picture Wall

This is how I had my wall of pictures set up. I loved this setup but I wanted something totally different...
I got this idea from my friend Angie...but a little different.
Thanks Angie for a great idea!
Look at my new wall!

I made these out of light card board blocks, black paint, scrapbook paper, stickers, ribbon and modge podge.

A change!

I am going to change the direction that I am going with this blog. I have many friends say that I need to sell the stuff that I do. So I am starting to make 2 of everything and I will be selling one of them on line...either here on this web page or on some other list. So if you like something that I have made and pictured, just e-mail me at and let me know which one you like and what colors you would like it in. I am not sure on price as of yet of the things that I have done previously to this post so I think that it would be negotiable.
I don't think that I Will be putting directions under each post anymore...just because it will be a money maker for me. I am sure you understand.
I have done some new things/crafts that I just LOVE so make sure you come back and visit this blog soon...I plan on updating in the next few days.

Mikawa Est. 1997

By far this is one of my most loved crafts that I did. I made this at a Souper Saturday last year. It cost about $14. It came complete with the vinyl lettering and the frame(blank wood) the glass and the ribbon. Most everyone decided to paint their frame black and then spray it with the sealer. I chose to paint mine black, but I did not want the crisp look so I sanded mine down a before I put the sealer on. While I waited for the paint to dry, I applied the lettering to the glass. It is a vinyl lettering that I am sure that they got from a company on line "". After that was done, I glued the glass into the frame and then I thread the ribbon through. It is a sage green color. I plan to change it to a pink or a cranberry color. Something that will "pop"

Kitchen Potted Plant

I have painted many others. I really enjoy painting and I Love to have beautiful plants in my pots that I paint! This one I painted to match my kitchen.

Kitchen Angel

I found this angel in one of the books that I received from a Charmed Moments Convention. It is by DJ Inkers. I had a friend cut out the shape and then I used transfer paper and traced the image on the shape and then I painted it. Well Jenna painted this one. I was making one for my sister in law DeeDee and Jenna wanted to paint too! I think that she did a very good job! for the hair I hot glued it on. I found the hair already in curls in a bag at Michales.

I am a Child of God

I just LOVE Deseret Book! I found this kit there and spent too much money on it but I had to have it! It is vinyl lettering. It came with directions on how to do it. I went to Lowes and found the right size and thickness that I wanted and then had them cut it down to size. I did add an inch on the width and the length than what the directions advised.
I painted the wood and then followed the directions on applying the vinyl lettering. I thought that it needed a little more detail and added the little pink flowers under the red line. I think that it turned out great! It sits on Emma's desk in her room. She loves it and it reminds her that she is a Child of God and that He is always there with her, to lead her and guide her and to walk beside her. Definitely worth the money that I spent!
