Shabby Chic Baby Shower

I recently did a shabby chic baby shower invitation, and created this adorable banner to go with it. This is something that can be printed, then laminated, making it beautiful decoration for the babies room. Styles vary, and can be made custom to match bedding, decor, theme etc.

Here’s a detail shot of what each individual banner actually looks like. Of course each banner could alternate in color, pattern or design to allow for more visual interest. Each banner is completely customizable!

Digital Organization

I wanted to share with you, how I organize my digital scrapbooking supplies. This is what my Weeds & Wildflowers folder looks like. It’s organized by collection.

I don’t like to click through each folder to see what each collection looks like, I thought, if I could customize each folder to show the contents, that would save me so much time! That’s when I found Img 2 Icns for PC and here’s Image 2 Icon for Mac. The process was fairly easy, and quick. I switched all my folders over to photo displays so I can easily see what collection is what color, the contents, etc.

Here’s a quick video tutorial, by Image 2 Icon, on how to use their software.

Custom Task Chart

I’ve recently created a task chart for the kids. The reason I did a task chart, as opposed to a chore chart is because it has daily tasks that need to be fulfilled. Tasks that we’re trying to make habit as opposed to chores; take out the trash, wash the dishes, etc.

The task chart is in my Etsy Shoppe for $1.00! You get to choose the background, and of course the task area will be empty so you can fill in your own. There are also a variety of backgrounds available as well.

If you’re on the market for baby shower invitations, birthday invitations, etc please contact me!

Glue Dots blog hop with Marion Smith

Hi friends! I’m excited for the Glue Dots blog hop with Marion Smith! If this is your first stop, you’ll want to head over to the Glue Dot’s blog for all the details.

Today I’m using Marion Smith’s Never Grow Up along with Glue Dots Continuous Glue Lines and Ultra Thin Dot Roll in the Desktop Dispenser. I have to say, I’m not really a flower person, but, when I saw this line I instantly thought of The Secret Garden, something my grandmother read to me as a child. Since her birthday is June 8th, I thought this paper line would be perfect for her card and gift wrap!

Valentine’s Day decor on a budget

Are you getting ready for Valentine’s Day? Do you do anything to celebrate? I don’t usually do anything, and Valentine’s Day isn’t a big deal in our house, but, my kids are at the age where parties with their friends are fun, so I thought we’d have a Valentine’s Day party!

I’ve been working hard to put together something fun for both the adults in attendance as well as the children… a little something for everyone if you will. Of course I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and found this:

heart garland for valentine's day decor

I loved it! I have felt, I have yards and yards of felt to be honest. I buy white felt several yards at a time for projects like this. Having my Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays makes it really easy for me to alter the felt to the color I want, instead of having several yards of several colors.

I simply picked two colors that are very vibrant, one pink, and one red. My go-to pink is always Hibiscus Rose. It’s my absolute favorite, and it’s so vibrant! For red, I used Rizzo’s Rowdy Red, another gorgeous, vibrant color. I have a vinyl tablecloth I like to use for big projects like this. I began by laying that out, laid out my felt pieces, and began spraying. I allowed the felt to dry over night and was able to sew it the following day, with no problems. Without further ado…

I have several glass jars that sit on a buffet area, and I wanted to make it more appealing. So I added lots of pink, red and white felted hearts. I loved the way it turned out, it’s a great conversation pieces, especially among other crafty moms, designing ‘on a dime!’ The best part is, my daughters (seven and six) helped to make the hearts. So they can brag to their friends about the cute decorations they made!
