pinterest challenge #6

This is my pinterest challenge number 6!

I started this on May 5 and actually made 2 matching ones. One for Atlantis, and one for myself.

Here is the pattern:

Here is my end result:


I love it! I used some basic Red Heart Super Saver acrylic.

I am very happy!

pinterest challenge #3

This is my pinterest challenge#3

These frames were my inspiration

So, I had these leftover wood rings from something. So, I decided to use them.


I dug out the ribbons and stared wrapping. The first one I hung in my daughter’s closet to use as the pull-string for her light.  I hung it with a pink shoe string.


So, I started to wrap the other ones and add buttons here and there:


Some of them had two types of ribbons or lace.  This is what I ended up with:

They aren’t really frames, so I decided to find a place for them. And, I found her boring little lampshade in her room:


So, I hot glued them to her lampshade:


This was a super easy project. Very colorful and fun. Plus, the wee one is please – and that’s all that matters.  I would call this one a success!


pinterest challenge #2

So today I completed Pinterest Challenge #2

We decided to this elephant. I have it pinned on my craft board.

This is what she created:



I call this one a success.

I had black acrylic paint and white acrylic paint.  We mixed it up on a paper plate with a brush.  We did a total of 5.  The first 2 were kind of a trial-and-error for us. Once she really got the hang of pressing her hand on the paper, all went well. It dried all day. Then she glued on a googly eye.  Then she used a black Sharpie to make the tail, ears, trunk lines and feet.

They are going in the  mail tomorrow morning to the family. I’m sure they will be loved!

30 day knitting challenge – day 10

Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer?

I like Hannah Fettig, but I’ve never knit anything by her -lol

just another sunday

We woke up to see what the bunny brought at 7:30.  Not bad. Much later than normal years. She was excited.  We were tired. We went back to bed till 10 and then got up and all went out for breakfast.  Perfect day for us.

She and I started our first Project Life page today. She is super excited about it too. I was kind of afraid she wouldn’t care too much about it. But, she is very excited. She is filling out the journaling cards and she is taking pictures. I adore that. She and I run to the photo print machine with our handy little memory card and she can print off the pics herself.  We bought fun archival glitter pens. She is concerned about laying it out, using the stickers, writing and drawing pics. I am so happy. What a treasure for us. Even if we only do it for one year.  It’s still going to be a great joy for us.  I can’t wait to see how it goes. I’m sure there will be times that she isn’t thrilled about doing it – but I think those times will be few and far between.

I hope…

30 day knitting challenge – day 9

Day 9: What fiber or yarn do you love working with?

I like wool. Cotton and alpaca can be a bit stretchy for me.  I love sock yarns!
