Buzz Right In

Buzz Right In

“Buzz Right In” to the baby shower! It was difficult searching for a sign for the front door of a bumble bee themed baby shower.  All of the signs said “Mommy to Bee” which didn’t really suggest to the guests to come right in the door.  I created the “Buzz Right In” sign above.  I used different … Continue reading

Porch Wreath

I finally made it to Joann Fabrics and Crafts to get some of the mossy ribbon to decorate a wreath for my front porch.  Since the moss ribbon was not long enough to wrap around the entire wreath, I cut it down the middle to have 2 strips.   Then I twisted it around the twig … Continue reading

To the Moon and Back

Bird Brain

Add modern pizzazz with wood art!  Simple and clean cedar wood works great.  You can give it a quick sanding around the edges to have a smooth looking finish.  To hang it on the wall just pop 2 thumb tacks in the back and tie a piece of string to each end.  I needed to … Continue reading

Holiday Card Wasteland

What do you do with all of those holiday cards after the holidays are over?  Wouldn’t it be nice to reuse them in another project? Typically I keep all of the holiday cards we receive, especially the photo ones.  Non-family photo cards tend to find their way into the trash or in a pile somewhere stashed away … Continue reading

Have you ever made a moss terrarium?  They are easy to make and maintain.  Just keep … Continue reading

Every Kiss begins with Kay

A wonderful way to decorate and personalize your home is to use monograms.  Wood letters are easy and fun to decorate.  You can get them at any craft store.  I created my wooden “K” in the spirit of Christmas.  I used holly paper from a Mat Stack and traced the “K” on the back of the paper then cut it out.  … Continue reading

Junk in the Trunk

Traditionally, wedding guests would give the bride and groom a card that the groom slipped into his coat pocket.  Well, nowadays the coat pocket would most likely not be able to hold all the cards.  Hence, the card box or in this case, the card trunk.  I saw an unfinished wooded trunk at Joann Fabrics … Continue reading

Tree of Life

I need to break out of my shell and post something else besides cards!  Don’t get me wrong, I love making cards, but we need to shake it up a bit.  The Tree of Life is a mosaic I made on a wall that leads down to my basement.  I really wanted to mosaic something … Continue reading

Happy Easter!

The bunny has arrived!  Easter has turned into a 2 day event!  Last night we went to my Dad’s for a delicious dinner, good champagne and Easter EGG Painting (in that order)!  My niece had a mini Easter Egg hunt in the living room.  I think Hunter, my Dad’s dog, may have also found some … Continue reading
