Easter Blocks

Can you believe Easter is almost here? This year it's April 4th, the day after my baby turns 3! That's less than 2 weeks!!

Sunday, March 21, 2010


I have a a few people request for a tutorial for My Magnetic Monograms. So stay tuned this week......(p.s. there interchangable, I'm thinking perfect decor for every Holiday imaginable)

Plus wait to see my new chore and Laundry chart, it's a lifesaver!

Picture Perfect Calendar

I have had this picture frame lying around forever. Shortly after I got it the glass shattered, so it sat around waiting for a project to pop in my mind. (it was very patient) Then it hit me! A perfect project calendar, Somewhere to organize all my projects. I'm very big on planning ahead, but I'm also very forgetfull. I usually write down millions of project to do, or recipes, or fun things for the kids. But then it'll get stashed away, colored on, or tore up (gotta love a dog). This way I can pick about 15 things to do, and get it done. For example: Wednesdays I do crafts with the kids, My preschooler is off of school that day, so It's the perfect day to keep them occupied. Friday's are my hair accessories day. Tuesday's and Thursday's I like to do any project during nap time, it's my ME time. And Mondays and some saturdays I like to do sewing projects. (curently doing curch clothes, Bow ties, kid ties, and The Hubby has donated a few of his winter sweaters to be mad into sweater vests, for him, not the children. lol. Although he has donated a few pairs of slacks for me to make the boys some cute vests and ties. Can't wait!
Wow, now that you all know a lot of details, I'll continue...... The picture frame was originally a cherry wood color, but the calendar that I bought clashed with it. I figured White I a beautiful clean color that goes with EVERYTHING! Then I used a neutral fabric to cover it. Nailed a nail into the top, and there you have it, the perfect Calendar holder. Perfect to use year after year. (Also such an easy Mother's day gift) shhhhhhh don't tell my mom.

Paper Book Wreath

I have FINALLY done it, I've cracked under all the preassure and make a paper book wreath. I've been seeing them everywhere lately, and was fed up with being jealous that I didn't have one of these little beauty's. So I put all my chores aside for 1 day (or 2 hehe) to make me one. Yes, they are that time consuming. By the way, do not use your fingers to hold any of the papers in place after hot gluing them. Pencils only should be used, I learned the hard way. So here it is! Can't wait to hang her up!

Yes, I know, what am I thinking, don't worry, i had an extra copy.

I painted the edges of the book for and aged look. I wanna do a smaller wreath for my entryway, but I might do coffee on that one..........

I just rolled the papers up all different ways

I'm in love with how full it looks

I picked up this large picture frame for 50 cents at a thrift store. I told my hubby I wanted to paint it Black, but he told me it goes really well with the "look" of the paper. I think for once he may be right....It needs a good cleaning though of course.

I just want to apologize for all my UNDONE projects, were currently living in the guest house of my inlaws, and I don't want to put holes in there walls since we're only here temporarily. So If you all stay with me, you'll see the out come of all my many projects. We just have to find our perfect house first!
