A few projects

Hello bloggers!
Once again it has been a few months since I have posted anything here. Sorry about that, working second shift just dosent give me much time to craft and post things to my blog, so when I have time off I get to enjoy crafting everyday and get to share it with you. So I will be moving the beginning of next month and have been working on some projects for my new house. A couple of these ideas I got from pintrest, that place is dangerous for us crafters. I will link to the blog that gave me the original idea if I can find them.

 First up is these word blocks. I simply got some blocks from my local Hobby Lobby and painted them, then using a silhouette cutting machine cut out the letters in vinyl and added them. Here is the link to them from they blog I used Sassy Sanctuary. The only difference in hers and mine is I sanded the edges down.

 My second project for the week is this sign I made. I also got the wood from my local Hobby Lobby and then simply pained it and cut out the words with a silhouette in vinyl and added them to the wood. Couldn't get much easier.

My last project with just might be my favorite is this crayola art. I bought the canvas and flowers from again my local Hobby Lobby and then simply hot glued down the crayons, used a heat gun to melt them and then hot glued my flowers down.

Once again thank you for visiting my blog, hopefully it wont be as long till I am back.

Nook Cover

Well hello to my followers, if I still have any haha. I have been MIA for quite some time now. Working 2nd shift full time dosent leave me much time to craft. I have made quite a few cards while I've been away I just havent had time to upload them to my blog. Well I took this week off of work, I've worked at this place for almost 2 years now and haven't taken any time off, so I decided I deserved a week off.
I've been working on a few projects this week and will show you more once I get the pictures taken. However I couldn't wait to show you this project that I have been wanting to make for a while now. Sorry if the picture aren't that great I took them with my phone.

The only thing missing is the button I need to put on the front to keep it closed. I couldn't find one in my stash I liked, guess that gives me an excuse to go shopping haha. I bought the pattern for this on etsy from Birdful Stitches. The pattern was super easy to follow and very easy to make. I just love how it turned out. Its not perfect but I'm not the greatest sewer. Hopefully I will be back this week with more projects for all of you to see. Have a wonderful day!!
