Color Me Crazy!


Just popping in quick to say "hi!"  It's going to get a little tricky trying to find things to post as I'm working on a ton of gifts at the moment!! Well, I'm off to do some painting! I'd love to hear what you guys are making!

After Thanksgiving and a couple of late nights, I'm still feeling a bit like Sneaky Pete here... tired but happy!  I had fun with my family, saw some friends, played games with my three favorite boys, did a little bit of Christmas shopping, and helped decorate the tree.  Now it's really time to get my Christmas craft on!!

Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving, ate lots of yummy food, and were thankful for the family and friends you spent it with!  I have a few shots of our table set for sixteen if you'd like to see!

Photo-Tuesday Spotlight Showcase


This week's Photo-Tuesday is going to be a little different.  I'm going to show you this really cool storage bench that my dad made as a gift for some friends of ours.

Shellac is Wack!


To go with our natural and geometric Thanksgiving theme, here are some candleholders I made!  I kept them simple with just white so that they can be used for Christmas as well!

Personalized Block Set


I recently made this set of blocks for a friend to give as a gift to a couple who just had a baby!  The blocks can spell their daughter's full name and birthday, and of course make lots of different designs...

Photo-Tuesday (Pic heavy)


What follows is a mix of pictures from my phone and digital camera...  I was going to put captions with each one, but maybe together they will tell a story themselves.

Arrrrr Train Scrapghan Block


While visiting my sister in NYC, we didn't have time to craft something together for Trish's Craft-Along Party, sad face.  There was too much shopping and talking (happy face)!  However, we did do a lot of talking about Christmas crafting, and I bought some jewelry making supplies!

Happy Weekend!


Hey guys, before I leave for Brooklyn this weekend, I wanted to leave you with a quick sneak peek of my next project and mention a craft-along party that's happening this weekend over at genuine mudpie!  If you've been looking for an excuse to make or try something new or finish something you've already started, the craft-along party is it! Hopefully my sister and I will find some crafting time so we can party too!

Hope you have a wonderfully whimsical weekend!

Thanksgiving Napkins!


Ready for the next Thanksgiving project after the jute trivets?  Painted napkins!  We decided on white, rusty orange and gold for our color theme, and of course, how could I do anything without throwing in some geometric shapes!  Want to know how I did them?

I've been a little busy with Christmas, Thanksgiving and birthday projects, which means I haven't been able to take many pictures!  But I do have this little Christmas project sneak peek...

Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!!

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered, and I Grannied


I haven't posted since Wednesday, so you may be wondering if I lost the battle with my Snaggle Monster!  I'm happy to report, after a mighty struggle, I have come out on top!  To further clinch my victory I started to make some Granny Arrows blocks.  Take that Snaggle Monster!!


Although I have won the battle, the war is far from over...  Next up is sewing in those pesky ends.  However, I do have a little start on it! Just look at those beauties.  Grannies just make me happy!

Are you guys engaged in any crafting battles?
