Chore Chart

I think this might just be my busiest year EVER!
My craft room has become my sanctuary although I have to admit I am not getting a lot of projects completely finished. I have about 7 that I work on periodically throughout the week. This project in particular is one I have been in need of for a few weeks and finally just sat down and got it done.
I bought a simple magnetic whiteboard and used the metallic back of it instead of the whiteboard side. 
I used Washi tape for the grid and the decorative owls on the top and bottom.
For the title and the days of the week I had some blue vinyl and cut them out using the "Better Than Chocolate" font on the Cricut
For the chore tags I just cut out flags from strips of different colors of Card-stock and put magnetic tape on the back.
All of the supplies (with the exception of the card-stock and the vinyl I picked up at good ole Hobby Lobby).

It was quick, easy and fun!

Stampin' Up Spring Wreath

 Hello Everyone!
The January and February craziness has finally calmed down so I am bound and determined to spend my every waking "free moment" crafting and creating!

I have an afternoon of craft and chatting that I am hosting this upcoming weekend and thought the gals would love to check out this Stampin' Up Spring Wreath kit they are offering in the Occasions catalog!

It was fun to put together and relatively easy. Everything was cut and ready to go all you need is a hot glue gun and the glue of course! :-)


It just makes me want to pull out my gardening tools and start planting some flower!

My Pink Craft Studio Project

Hello All! 
Sorry for being MIA lately, with the Holidays and the 7 family birthdays in January things have been insane!
Needless to say we have been busy but as if all of this wasn't enough we decided to get even crazier! 
Just before Christmas my husband and I were deciding how we should move things around in our house. We decided we would move my craft room downstairs but I happen to make the comment of how I was "thinking" of painting the room before we moved everything. 
Next thing I know we are in the car headed to the store. We picked out a very pretty pink color, mixed it, picked up all of the painting supplies and headed home. Now I was off from school for winter break but my husband had to work the next day so I assumed we would start when he got home from work the next night. 

Oh no... we went right home and got to work "why wait" my husband said!

 The painters at work!
By the way this was the first room I had painted... I have to say it was a lot of fun!

Before and after

So we painted the whole room in about an hour and then headed to bed. The next day I did the trim and got to work moving things down.
Oh did I mention this was Christmas Eve!
Yes indeed, Christmas Eve :-)
So here is the finished product and I have to say I LOVE it!!
Now I just need to decorate!  

My husband replaced the light seen here.
We replaced it with a really nice hanging light fixture I will post a picture of it one day.

Christmas Cards

Hello All!
I am preparing for an upcoming card class and wanted to share some of the kits I put together.
I have to say Christmas cards are one of my favorite types of cards to make.
They are so fun and easy to put together!
Let me know what you think!

Fabric Flowers!

Hello Everyone!
I have finally succumbed to the killer cold going around school! I was going to do a video tonight but I currently sound like a male version of Minnie Mouse. 
As I was headed home tonight I decided to do my best at ignoring my rumbling cough and runny nose by heading to a few craft stores. I ended up buying a crafter tool I have wanted for a while. It is the brad maker and I LOVE it! It is so super easy to use, I included a picture of it below. I was hesitant because it happened to be on clearance and I feared it was being discontinued but I loaded up the cart with it and about two dozen accessories... hey it was on clearance remember!
Anyway, when I got home I went straight to crafting (ignoring my bodies call to crawl into bed and disappear under the covers until Spring). So in the end these cute hair accessories were created.


Stampin' Up - Floral Framelits (Flower fabric cutouts) ~LOVE THESE!!
Fabric Bundle - Hobby Lobby
Michael's - (coordinating brad)
Hair clips and hot glue to adhesive it to the back.

Now off to bed with my Vicks vapor rub and warm blanket
Thanks Everyone and have a great week!
