Welcome Little One

Hey, everyone! It's me again with another post! Today is just a card I made a couple months ago for a good friend of mine who had a baby. Life is pretty busy around here with Spring Break so I am hoping to get back into crafting again soon. Until then, I am trying to post all of the stuff I have not yet had time to post. Enjoy and have a great rest of your day! :) TA!

Valentine Vase

Good morning! I know it is extremely late but better late than never right? Here is a project I did for my son's teachers. I used a snack container to make a flower vase. The flowers are fake and from Walmart. It is a gift that will last year round and always brighten up the classroom! (Or any other room for that matter.) It was my first attempt at it and I like the way it turned out. I do have to say, however, that next time I will use material instead of paper to wrap the vase. The paper doesn't cover as smoothly and end up looking somewhat bulky and not too professional. I have tons of these containers so I will have lots of practice to get it right! I can't wait to share more soon! Take care!!

My First Photo Frame!

Hey, everyone! I hope y'all are having a great Sunday. I know I am. I have heard some really great church talks today and they gave me such peace. I love being at peace. It warms the heart and soul. :)

 I am very excited to share my first home decor project today!! I bought a really cute photo frame when my eldest was still a baby, and an only child. However, life got in the way and I never got around to putting it up. I found it the other day and decided to get down to business. But when I took a look at it after I framed the photos, I felt it seriously lacked in decor-ation. (Get it!) So I decided to try and spice it up a bit-and I LOVE IT!!! I would really like to know what y'all think. I am very proud of it and am looking for my next home decor project...what would 3D flowers look like on the entertainment stand....hmmm I wonder....

Take care!!

(Silly me forgot to take a 'before' pic until after I already started embellishing.)
