My Thanksgiving Signs...

Thanks to I have some really super cute Thanksgiving signs for my kitchen. Just go to her site and print them off. I than purchased some frames from the Dollar Tree... they had an ugly gold trim so I spray painted them black. Added the pics, hung, and there you have it.

My educational blocks...

So I wanted to make something fun but educational for my soon to be three year old daughter. She knows all the sounds of letters but I wanted her to start working on putting the sounds together to make words so I made her these blocks.

I decoupages all the side except for one with cute scrapbook paper. The blank side I spray painted with chalkboard paint. I did this with three blocks but you could make four or five blocks to make more difficult words.

So since the one side is chalkboard I just write letters in and make three letter words for her to sound out and put together. She's getting it little by little, but it definitely helps.

Pottery Barn Wanna Be...

So like many others, I go through the Pottery Barn catalog with a dream of someday having enough money to own something from that book. But until than I am a "Pottery Barn Wanna Be". So I've just copied the ideas and made them my own. I loved their mercury glass pumpkins so I went out to on a mission to copy them. I got some ceramic pumpkins from Dollar Tree. I spray painted them white (base coat) and than silver. I used the cheap cans of spray paint at Wal-mart. And now I have some cute decorations for the middle of my kitchen island that I've had up since the begining of October and can keep them up till Thanksgiving. Totally cute!

Halloween Spiders...

I know a little late on my post and a long time since I've post but something is better than nothing right?

So I had a Halloween party at my house and I wanted a quick decor for the kitchen island. So I got my cricut out of course.

I had cut out 6 purple spiders and 6 black spiders, all at 3 inches from the Doodle Charm cartridge. I glued some googly eyes (something every crafter should have in their craft drawers) and hung them from my pendant lighting with fishing line. I just taped the line to the inside of the light. I even taped some to the lamp itself for a different look, It turned out so cute. I was so proud of myself.
