A different kind of craft...

>> Thursday, December 9, 2010

To be fair to both myself and my readers I thought I would share what has kept me busy this week.

Not so much a crafty project, but definitely a project.

In efforts to become a better photographer (someday I hope to do it for some extra $$$) and practice editing the pics I take, I offered to take family photos of our good friends the Harding's.

I thought I would share some of the pictures. And PLEASE feel free to leave feedback in the comments (good or bad ;)!

A big thanks to the Harding's for the practice.


Ahoy Matey!!

So one of the "things" that has been on my plate the last month finally got taken care of this last weekend.

We threw our son Thomas a birthday party at our house and like all parties of the past and I would imagine future...I WENT OVERBOARD!!

Now...let me tell you that it was completely out of character of me to do so much work ahead of time. I am quite the procrastinator normally (not proud, but honest). Anyway, I surprised both my mom and my hubby by getting started on everything I wanted to do for his party weeks ahead.

Like his Halloween costume he wanted a Pirate themed party. I won't lie, I threw out a few suggestions in hopes he would choose something I could run with. AND HE DID!!

Had to share some of the decorations and give a shout out to my wonderful mom and FRESH CUT FLOURS for the most amazing pirate ship cookies.

In the end I had one very happy little 5 year old!!

I am linking up with...


Gone, but not forgotten...

Having a crafty blog has an enormous amount of pressure that comes along with it. A good kind of pressure, but pressure none the less. If there is anyone that actually has stuck around, I have not stopped crafting I have just been a bad blogger. My plate has been 100% full the last month, but I am happy to report that I am back.


I even have something to share.

A few months ago I picked up this little find at the goodwill for $3.99.

I am not entirely sure what it's intended purpose was, but after staring at it for a while and perusing other crafty blogs I decided what I wanted to do with it.

With two toddlers I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas countdown. I had actually seen a Halloween version (I would love to link back to that blog, but I have know idea where I saw it...apologies) and thought it was a very cute idea.

I picked up the little Merry Christmas sign at Hobby Lobby for $4.99. I used some good ol' E6000 and glued it to the top, taped off the back piece and painted half chalkboard, cut out some vinyl lettering with some scraps of vinyl and....voila!!
