All in a days work!

I must aplogize because I don't post very often.  With full time job, squeezing in an hour of exercise a day, and trying to keep house and hubby happy I am a bit maxed out when it comes to time.  I have however been able to squeeze in some me time in the craft room while hubby spends a few hours in a tree (hunting that is).  Here are a few things I've been working on. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!!

This is a banner for a friend who has a niece turning 3. 

Here I tried my hand at fabric flowers and I actually kind of like it!!!

Personalized drink coasters!  These are fun but a little time consuming when it comes to sealing them.  Gotta love good old Louisiana weather.  Soooo unpredictable!!!!

Here is a banner that I did for a baby shower and yep you guessed it TWINS!!!!  It's also going in the nursery so it matches the decor!!  It was precious!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Love being crafty...

Hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and Safe and Happy New Year!!!!  I must say mine was fabulous.  I just love the holidays and being surrounded by family. 

Well not only have I been eating ENTIRELY too much but I have been busy doing more productive things as well.  I was fortunate enough to have had the week between Christmas and the New Year off of work so I was able to play in my "Craft Room"  as my husband would call it. 

This is a set a of coasters I experimented with and I must say I'm so glad I made them for myself. 
LOVE 'EM!!!!

They were so easy....
I just took .16 cent tiles from your local Lowe's and mod-podged some gift wrapping tissue on and stuck some vinyl lettering on and VIOLA!!!  I would also recommend sealing them with a polyurethane spray just to keep them preserved and I think it's more professional to sell a finished project.

Just another close up!!  I actually posted these on my facebook and have 2 orders for them.  I just fell absolutely in love with them!!!

Here is a garland or banner whatever you want to call it that I'm doing for a baby shower.  This is actually half of the order because it's TWINS!! The other is just alike but the name is ELLYOT!  I love doing these!!

I have also been working on fabric flower headbands and coming soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
