Sports Themed Name Decoration

How many kids LOVE sports? I know my littles do! So I’ve worked up some 12″ letters to hang on a wall in a sports theme. In this posting I will show how I made the name Quinn in the sports: Basketball, Soccer, Football, Baseball and Tennis. I will tell you where to find the supplies needed, or how you can place an order and have me [...]

#1 Fan! Go Team!

This one is for the little (or not so little) fan in your house.  Do they have a sports room or bar, or dare we say the ole Man Cave?  These sports themed letters are a fun way to show your love of all sports.  Make them in whatever sport; I plan to work up samples for Tennis, Golf, and Hockey soon.  Do a name, initials, a city or school.  [...]

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superhero Letters!

I recently created some hand painted letters in a superhero theme.  It was a really fun project, and I’m currently working on two new ones of Flash and Green Lantern.  I’ll add photos of those as well once complete. These are meant to hang on a wall, but they could rest on a shelf.  I used 9″ letters that were 1/2 inch thick, [...]

It’s My Room, TAKE 2

Sesame Street Birthday!

My son turned one recently and so we of course had a party.  I chose to go with a Sesame Street theme because I thought that would be fun.  Oh, and I saw someone challenge someone to make a cake of Mr. Hooper’s Store, so I wanted to accept that challenge.   I, being obsessed with crafting and the crack that is Pinterest, had to make [...]

Giant Ruler Growth Chart – DIY

So when we moved into our house in the garage on the wall is where the family before us marked the growth of their children.  When re-painting the garage, it gave me a sad feeling that the history on the wall was about to disappear forever.   It made me hope that they had gotten some good photos of it to save forever. A few months later, our [...]

Valentine’s Day Craft – Perfect Personal Gift

This year for Valentine’s Day my two year old colored some hearts I cut out and we mailed those out with a piece of chocolate, but for the grandparents we made a little something extra. We made magnets for the fridge. It was quick and easy and below are the supplies and steps. I had to make them myself since my oldest is 2.5, but an older [...]

DIY Valentine’s Craft/Decoration

Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I don’t really have any Valentine’s Day decorations around my house, but figured since Jackson is getting older and can understand it, it’s time to start collecting decorations so we can celebrate right.   This year, to start the collection I made a little [...]

What’s For Dinner?

So as part of our budgeting process, my job is to bring down our grocery costs.  I’ve been couponing for a little over a year now and do pretty good.  I usually save between 12 and 30%.  I do strive to be better, but need to put in the time coupon hunting.  I did find that one good way to cut costs was to make a dinner menu for two weeks at [...]

3D Shadow Box Scene

In the spirit of the bitter cold, I thought I’d create a fun winter scene to put out this time of year. While we did have one good snow this year, we currently do not have any snow on the ground and it is 15 degrees out, so in lieu of the bitter cold, I needed SNOW! So I made some. Now I just look at this and it feels like it’s a beautiful [...]
